Legislation Status 
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The Suspicious Orders Task Force was established to provide the Attorney General with recommendations as to quantifiable parameters that could be assigned to orders of listed chemicals that would make them suspicious and therefore reportable to the DEA and to devise a method of allowing electronic transfer of this information. Drawing on the knowledge and experience of the members, the Task Force solicited additional testimony from experts in the field of clandestine drug laboratory investigation and prosecution. Further testimony was invited from the general public. After careful consideration of the information presented, the Task Force assembled a list of recommendations, accompanied by supporting text, that was presented as the Report to the Attorney General.
How is membership balanced?*The membership was balanced between law enforcement and regulatory members and private industry members. The law enforcement and regulatory members represent Federal and state agencies which regulate the affected industries as well as agencies that investigate and prosecute clandestine drug manufacturing laboratories. The private industry members represent those companies that import, manufacture and distribute finished product at all levels; from raw material to ultimate consumer.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The Task Force did not meet during this fiscal year.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*This Task Force was Congressionally mandated to provide guidance to the Attorney General who in turn must provide guidance to a newly regulated industry.
Why close or partially close meetings?All meetings held by this Task Force were open to the public for observation and participation.
