The Forensic Science Standards Board (FSSB) serves as OSAC's governing board and aims to:
Facilitate the promulgation of standards that will support the development of quality benchmarks and enhance consistency across the forensic science community.
Discuss and address issues related to the OSAC standards development process.
Coordinate the activities of OSAC's Scientific Area Committees (SACs), subcommittees, and interdisciplinary committees.
The FSSB meets each virtually each month and in-person each quarter (in the spring, summer, fall, and winter). Beginning in March 2023, the FSSB will have a public session available during their quarterly meetings to provide stakeholders with an opportunity to share feedback with the FSSB related to agenda items or matters with the FSSB's authority. The FSSB will consider all feedback from the public, and remarks can be made by the submitter or by the OSAC Program Office on behalf of the submitter. Visit the FSSB Meetings page to see the agendas and calls for public feedback for upcoming FSSB meetings.
