NIST forensic science experts presented a plan for a new Organization of Scientific Area Committees (OSAC) at the first meeting of the National Commission on Forensic Science in Washington, D.C.

The plan lays out how the new organization will coordinate development of standards and guidelines for the forensic science community to improve quality and consistency of work in the forensic science community.

The OSAC will unify the currently independent scientific working groups and incorporate their work products.

A summary of the plan and the presentation are available on the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s forensic science website. Public comments from a Federal Register Notice of Inquiry are also posted. Find these items at:

• 3-page summary of the NIST Proposed Plan for the Organization of Scientific Area Committees 

• Slide presentation on the Organization of Scientific Area Committees 

• Public Comments on NIST Notice of Inquiry: Possible Models for the Administration and Support for Forensic Guidance Groups
