SUMMARY: The Secretary of Labor has renewed the charter of the National 
Advisory Committee on Occupational Safety and Health (NACOSH) for two 
years.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Deborah Crawford, OSHA Directorate 
of Evaluation and Analysis, Room N-3641, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 
Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20210; telephone (202) 693-

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NACOSH was established by Section 7(a) of 
the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (the Act) (29 U.S.C. 
651, 656) to advise, consult with, and make recommendations to the 
Secretary of Labor and the Secretary of Health and Human Services on 
matters relating to the administration of the Act. Under the Act, 
Congress intended NACOSH to be a continuing advisory committee of 
indefinite duration.
    NACOSH operates in accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee 
Act (FACA) (5 U.S.C. App. 2) and OSHA's regulations on advisory 
committees (29 CFR parts 1912 and 1912a). Pursuant to FACA and its 
implementing regulations (41 CFR 102-3), the NACOSH charter must be 
renewed every two years. The current charter expires on January 29, 
2009. The Secretary has determined that renewing the NACOSH charter is 
necessary and in the public interest. The new Committee charter will 
expire two years from the date it is filed.
