RECOMMENDATION/JUSTIFICATIONS

Agency Recommendation*Terminate
Legislation to Terminate RequiredNo
Legislation StatusNot Applicable
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The committee accomplishes its purpose by providing advice and guidance regarding new scientific knowledge and technical developments and their practical applications to childhood lead poisoning prevention efforts. The committee also reviews and reports regularly on childhood lead poisoning prevention practices and recommends improvements in national childhood lead poisoning prevention efforts.
How is membership balanced?*The committee consists of 13 members who are knowledgeable about pediatric lead screening, diagnosis, medical management, laboratory issues, environmental lead hazard detection and reduction, preventive medicine, epidemiology, public health, and parents concerns. Members represent academia, state and local lead poisoning prevention programs, other federal agencies, private organizations, and the parents of lead poisoned children. Although the views of members reflect their individual fields of expertise and experience, no one point of view or area of expertise dominates the committee’s recommendations.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The committee met twice in FY 2013. The committee charter facilitates the ability of the committee to respond to the changing problem of childhood lead poisoning in the United States. Despite dramatic reductions in the prevalence of lead poisoning over the past two decades, and while significant progress has taken place in our efforts to eliminate childhood lead poisoning, the magnitude of the problem remains large. Issues related to childhood lead poisoning remain complex, requiring the development of new strategies for prevention and control. The committee’s ability to meet these challenges is enhanced by representation of ex officio's from Federal agencies and liaisons from non-governmental organizations.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*CDC’s goal to eliminate childhood lead poisoning can only be accomplished through collaborative activities with state and local childhood lead poisoning prevention programs, pediatricians, public health officials, and the public. These collaborative activities include providing advice and making recommendations regarding childhood lead poisoning prevention. Issues surrounding childhood lead poisoning prevention and control have become complex, involving the need to develop innovative approaches to reach high-risk populations. Issues include: primary prevention, improved secondary prevention through medical and environmental case management, racial/ethnic disparities, lead hazards in non paint items, and the need to address other emerging issues. The capability to exchange current information about research, technological advances, and developments in the field of environmental management does not exist elsewhere in HHS.
Why close or partially close meetings?N/A.
Recommendation RemarksThe committee was terminated October 31, 2013. The committee did not have any committee meetings in FY14 generating no costs to the committee. This committee did not generate any reports in FY13.

Number Of Recommendations CommentThe Laboratory Workgroup was established in November 2011 to investigate and report on five issues: proficiency testing (PT) limits; guidelines for point of care lead testing; alternative matrices for assessing exposure to lead; environmental lead analytical issues; and, reference intervals for adult lead exposure. The Laboratory Workgroup compiled a draft report entitled Guidelines for Measuring Lead in Blood Using Point of Care Instruments. This draft report provides 19 guidelines for point of care lead testing. The draft report was approved by the ACCLPP with the understanding that the document would be revised based on the input provided during the teleconference meeting.Access Agency WebsiteNo
