The Environmental Technologies Trade Advisory Committee (ETTAC) was established by Congress in 1994 under the Jobs through Trade Expansion Act to advise the interagency Environmental Trade Working Group of the Trade Promotion Coordinating Committee, through the Secretary of Commerce, on U.S. Government policies and activities to advance U.S. environmental goods and services exports.
The Committee was most recently re-chartered in August 2022 for a two-year term. The ETTAC is comprised of senior executives who were appointed by Secretary Raimondo in February and represent all facets of the environmental technologies industry, including the water and wastewater treatment, air pollution monitoring and control, and solid waste management and recycling sectors.
The U.S. Department of Commerce held its first meeting under the 2022-2024 charter on April 11-12, 2023. The next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, June 20, 2023, from 8:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT). A Federal Register Notice with the details and specific deadline for members of the public to register to participate or to submit written comments for dissemination prior to the meeting is forthcoming.
