2 NIOSH pulled case from dose reconstruction and returned it to DOL for Special Exposure Cohort (SEC) consideration.

3 Draft dose reconstruction report completed. Administratively closed due to claimant refusal to sign OCAS-1 form.

4 Of the total active claims at NIOSH, 197 out of 812 (24 %), represent dose reconstructions returned to NIOSH by DOL for rework due to additional employment, an additional cancer needs to be dose reconstructed, or the affect of a technical change based on a Program Evaluation Report is being examined.
