David Fischer Authored Article on the IARC – FACA Relationship

Keller and Heckman Counsel David Fischer authored the William & Mary Environmental Law and Policy Review Journal article, “The IARC Monographs Program and the Federal Advisory Committee Act – Never the Twain Shall Meet?” Part I of the article provides an overview of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) Monographs Program and its ongoing relationship with the National Cancer Institute. Part II explores the impetus of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), and reviews key provisions. Part III discusses FACA jurisprudence, focusing on Public Citizen v.
