Notice of Public Meeting of the Interagency Steering Committee on 
Radiation Standards

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice of public meeting.


SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will host a meeting 
of the Interagency Steering Committee on Radiation Standards (ISCORS) 
on May 1, 2013 in Washington, DC. The purpose of ISCORS is to foster 
early resolution and coordination of regulatory issues associated with 
radiation standards. Member agencies include the EPA; Nuclear 
Regulatory Commission; Department of Energy; Department of Defense; 
Department of Transportation; Department of Homeland Security; 
Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration; 
and the Department of Health and Human Services. Observer agencies 
include the Office of Science and Technology Policy; Office of 
Management and Budget; and the Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board, 
as well as representatives from the States of Arizona and Pennsylvania. 
ISCORS objectives are: (1) To facilitate a consensus on allowable 
levels of radiation risk to the public and workers; (2) to promote 
consistent and scientifically sound risk assessment and risk management 
approaches in setting and implementing standards for occupational and 
public protection from ionizing radiation; (3) to promote completeness 
and coherence of federal standards for radiation protection; and (4) to 
identify interagency radiation protection issues and coordinate their 
resolution. ISCORS meetings include presentations by the chairs of the 
subcommittees and discussions of current radiation protection issues. 
Committee meetings normally involve pre-decisional intra-governmental 
discussions and, as such, are normally not open for observation by 
members of the public or media. This is the one ISCORS meeting out of 
four held each year that is open to all interested members of the 
public. There will be time on the agenda for members of the public to 
provide comments. Summaries of previous ISCORS meetings are available 
at the ISCORS Web site, www.iscors.org. The final agenda for the May 
1st meeting will be posted on the Web site shortly before the meeting.

DATES: The meeting will be held on May 1, 2013, from 1:00 pm to 4:00

building located at 1310 L Street NW., in Washington, DC. Attendees are
