44 CFR 12.3 - Policy.

§ 12.3 Policy.
In determining whether an advisory committee should be created, and in reviewing the functions of operating advisory committees, the Agency will:
(a) Establish new advisory committees only when they are determined to be essential, keeping their number to the minimum necessary to accomplish the assigned mission of the agency or its components;
(b) Provide standards and uniform procedures to govern the establishment, operation, administration, and duration of the advisory committees;
(c) Terminate the advisory committees when they are no longer necessary to carry out the purposes for which they were established; and
(d) Keep the Congress and the public informed with respect to the number, purpose, membership, activity, and cost of the advisory committees.
