The CSB is an independent federal agency charged with investigating incidents and hazards that result, or may result, in the catastrophic release of extremely hazardous substances.  The agency's Board Members are appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate.  CSB investigations look into all aspects of chemical accidents and hazards, including physical causes, such as equipment failure, as well as inadequacies in regulations, industry standards, and safety management systems.

Each public meeting will include opportunity for public comment.  The time provided for public statements will depend upon the number of people who wish to speak.  Speakers should assume that their presentations will be limited to three minutes or less, but commenters may submit written statements for the record.

For further information contact Hillary Cohen, Communications Manager, at [email protected] or (202) 446-8094.  Further information about the agency’s public meetings may be found on the CSB website at: www.csb.gov.
