The Act authorizes the Director of the National Institute of Standards and Technology to establish National Construction Safety Teams for deployment after events causing the failure of a building or class of buildings that has resulted in substantial loss of life or that posed the potential for substantial loss of life. The Act directs NIST to establish a Federal Advisory Committee to advise the Director on carrying out this Act and to review the procedures developed under Section 2(c)(1) of the Act and the reports issued under Section 8 of the Act. The National Construction Safety Team Advisory Committee is composed of individuals who are experts in their respective fields. The committee advises the NIST Director and NCST teams on the conduct of investigations, reviews and provides advice on the technical approaches used in investigations, reviews and provides advice on findings, conclusions and recommendations resulting from NCST investigations, and reviews and provides comments on written investigation reports. The NCST Advisory Committee provides an outside perspective to NCST investigations that lends credibility to the resulting findings, conclusions, and recommendations. a265ece8-2e8f-4e52-bde2-9f42fbb0cb2d Recommandations This Committee is required by law.
