The Biden administration has released the current members of EPA’s Science Advisory Board (SAB) and is inviting new nominations of scientific experts to be considered for appointment by May 3, 2021. The Agency is undertaking this effort to ensure scientific integrity and reduce the influence of industry on SAB recommendations. The SAB is a chartered Federal Advisory Committee that provides independent scientific and technical peer review, consultation, advice and recommendations to the EPA Administrator. Members of the SAB constitute a distinguished body of non-EPA scientists, engineers, and economists who are nationally and internationally recognized experts in their respective fields. Members are appointed by the EPA Administrator to serve as Special Government Employees for a term of up to three years. For more information, read the Federal Register Notice, and visit the SAB website.
