SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Secretary has renewed the NACOSH charter 
for two years until October 7, 2016.
    NACOSH was established by Section 7(a) of the Occupational Safety 
and Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act) (29 U.S.C. 651, 656) to advise, 
consult with and make recommendations to the Secretary and the 
Secretary of Health and Human Services on matters relating to the 
administration of the OSH Act. NACOSH is a continuing advisory 
committee of indefinite duration.
    NACOSH operates in accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee 
Act (FACA) (5 U.S.C. App. 2), its implementing regulations (41 CFR part 
102-3), and OSHA's regulations on NACOSH (29 CFR part 1912a). Pursuant 
to FACA (5 U.S.C. App. 2, Sec.  14(b)(2)), the NACOSH charter must be 
renewed every two years.
    The new charter establishes uniform term expiration dates for 
NACOSH members, with all terms expiring at the end of a given calendar 
year. In addition, the charter decreases the costs and staff years (1.5 
years down from 2 years) for operating NACOSH.
