Children's Health Protection
Children's Health Protection Advisory Committee (CHPAC)
The Children's Health Protection Advisory Committee is a body of researchers, academicians, health care providers, environmentalists, state and tribal government employees, and members of the public who advise EPA on regulations, research, and communication issues relevant to the environmental precipitants of health in children. Members serve voluntarily and the CHPAC meets about three times per year to provide specific recommendations to the EPA Administrator. The legal authority for CHPAC is the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), 5 USC App 2. CHPAC is in the public interest and supports the EPA in performing its duties and responsibilities under Executive Order 13045 of April 21, 1997 (62 Fed Reg 19885 (April 23, 1997)). CHPAC advice on NAAQS, chemicals, programs, policies, particular situations such as disasters, and larger issues such as smart growth reflect the wide ranging environmental issues which affect the health of children. While most attention is paid to domestic issues, CHPAC sometimes addresses global issues such as climate change. Please feel free to review the CHPAC Charter. For more information about CHPAC, contact Martha Berger or 202-564-2191.
