employees as an addition to the SEC:

    All employees of the Department of Energy, its predecessor 
agencies, and their contractors and subcontractors who worked at the 
Savannah River Site from January 1, 1953, through September 30, 
1972, for a number of work days aggregating at least 250 work days, 
occurring either solely under this employment or in combination with 
work days within the parameters established for one or more other 
classes of employees included in the Special Exposure Cohort.

    This designation became effective on March 3, 2012, as provided for 
under 42 U.S.C. 7384l(14)(C). Hence, beginning on March 3, 2012, 
members of this class of employees, defined as reported in this notice, 
became members of the SEC.
