[Docket Number NIOSH-244]

Comments and Information Relevant to Mid Decade Review of NORA

AGENCY: Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Centers for 

Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Institute for 

Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).

ACTION: Notice of Public Comment Period.


SUMMARY: The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health 

(NIOSH) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is 

conducting a review of the processes of the National Occupational 

Research Agenda (NORA). In 2006, NORA entered its second decade with an 

industry sector-based structure. In 2011, as NORA reaches the halfway 

point of its second decade, NIOSH is conducting a review of NORA 

processes to learn how adjustments can be made to maximize outcomes 

through the remainder of the second decade (2012-2016). The goal is to 

look at NORA processes across the ten NORA industry

sectors to provide an inter-sector perspective of the structure and 

progress of NORA to date. This is also an opportunity to obtain 

feedback on how to ensure that NORA realizes its full impact potential. 

We are interested in your comments on NORA processes; activities and 

accomplishments; and opportunities for adjustments for the future.

    Public Comment Period: Comments must be received by August 31,
