    ACCSH is a continuing advisory committee established under Section 
107 of the Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act (Construction 
Safety Act (CSA))(40 U.S.C. 3704(d)(4)), to advise the Secretary and 
the Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health in 
the formulation of construction safety and health standards as well as

Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act)(29 U.S.C. 651 et seq.).
    FACA requires that all advisory committees, including committees 
established by Congress, file a new charter every two years (5 U.S.C.

    The new Charter includes minor updates to reflect increases in the

indicate that ACCSH is generally expected to meet between three and 
four times per year.
