Nominations Requested for US EPA SAB and Subcommittees

The US Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) is seeking help in identifying a diverse range of qualified candidates to be considered for appointment to the  US EPA Science Advisory Board (SAB), as well as four SAB subcommittees. The SAB is a chartered federal advisory committee that provides independent, expert advice to the US EPA Administrator on a range of environmental science, engineering, and economic issues.

Each year, the SAB Staff Office publishes a Federal Register Notice announcing opportunities for the public to nominate candidate experts to serve on the SAB, and certain SAB standing committees. You can access the most recent notice for additional information requesting public nominations of candidate experts to serve on the Chartered SAB and the following standing SAB committees: Chemical Assessment Advisory Committee, Drinking Water Committee, Agricultural Sciences Committee, and Radiation Advisory Committee. The notice describes the functions of and expertise needed for the Chartered SAB and the four SAB committees.

Nominations to the SAB or the SAB committees should be made using the web links for each committee found under the “Nomination of Experts” category at the bottom of the SAB home page. Nominations are sought by August 8, 2018. Should you have questions about the nomination process or the broad charge to the SAB, please contact  Designated Federal Officers at SAB Sue Shallal shallal.suhair@epa.gov or or Thomas Carpenter carpenter.thomas@epa.gov.
