The Forensic Science Standards Board (FSSB) is being created to coordinate development of standards and guidelines to improve quality and consistency of forensic science practices. The FSSB has five Scientific Area Committees (SACs) focused upon various aspects of forensics. Each SAC has subcommittees devoted to specific forensic disciplines. All but one of these areas formerly had "Scientific Working Groups" – the exception being Odontology. See http://www.nist.gov/forensics/osac.cfm .
The Odontology Subcommittee will be under the leadership of Dr. Robert Barsley and will be comprised of a cross-section of experts. The subcommittee will begin officially in January, 2015.
