The Outer Continental Shelf Policy Committee is a committee of the Outer Continental Shelf Advisory Board, created in 1975 by the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act (43 U.S.C. 1331, et seq.). Through the Board, the U.S. Department of the Interior receives comments and recommendations from coastal state officials. The Board also provides a forum for coastal states and federal agencies involved in development of the shelf.
The Policy Committee advises the Secretary of the Interior on national policy implications of managing federal resources. This includes leasing, exploration, development, and protection of natural and mineral resources of the outer continental shelf. Committee meetings provide a formal mechanism for public interaction. Representatives include senior officials from the offices of the coastal state governors, fourteen discretionary members from public and private sectors, and eleven federal members who serve ex officio.
