EPA Seeking Nominations to Serve on the Children’s Health Protection Advisory Committee (CHPAC)

Jul 18, 2022 | Anu Varma

Established in 1997, the CHPAC provides independent advice to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator on a broad range of environmental issues affecting children’s health, such as pesticide exposures to children, environmental health in schools and childcare settings, prioritization and data needs to protect children’s health under the Toxic Substances Control Act, childhood lead exposure prevention, and climate change impacts to children. Candidates from diverse backgrounds including, but not limited to, industry; tribal, state, county, and local government; school systems; academia; health care providers (including pediatricians, obstetric professionals, occupational medicine practitioners, and community nurses); and non-governmental organizations are encouraged to apply. CHPAC members are appointed by the EPA Administrator for three-year terms with the possibility of reappointment to a second term. The Committee meets twice or thrice annually, and the average workload is approximately 10 to 15 hours per month.

Nominations should be submitted by August 15, 2022. Please refer to the Federal Register Notice, 87 FR 40529, July 7, 2022, at https://www.federalregister.gov/d/2022-14394 for more details.
