The U.S. EPA National Advisory Committee provides advice to the U.S. EPA Administrator

Denver, CO – The National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) has been invited and will serve as a member of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) National Advisory Committee (NAC). The NAC provides advice to the EPA Administrator on a broad range of environment‐related strategic, scientific, technological, regulatory, and economic issues to be addressed in the implementation and elaboration of the Environmental Cooperation Agreement (ECA).

Members are selected to represent the points of view held by nongovernmental organizations, associations, or classes of individuals. As a representative of the committee, NEHA will represent the interests of the environmental health profession and workforce.

Under the ECA, the U.S., Mexico, and Canada cooperate to reduce pollution, strengthen environmental governance, conserve biological diversity, and sustainably manage natural resources. The committee is chartered under the Federal Advisory Committee Act.

“We are honored and energized to contribute to the noble work of the committee,” said NEHA Chief Executive Officer Dr. David Dyjack, who will serve on the EPA NAC. “Environmental public health does not have borders, so we must collaborate with our neighbors on technology and policy to protect and promote the health, safety, and economic prosperity of everyone throughout the hemisphere.
