NHRPAC advisory documents are the result of considerable Committee effort, deliberation and consensus building.  Once the Committee achieves consensus on an issue, its recommendations are posted on this website and transmitted by the Chair to the Secretary of Health and Human Services, Assistant Secretary for Health, and to the Director of OHRP for their consideration.  The content of these documents is exclusively advisory and does not represent the official views or policies of OHRP or the Department of Health and Human Services.
