Docket No. 08-0206 requested four new detailed occupations: "Evidence Masters," "Evidence Technicians," "Master Timekeepers," and "Metrological Researchers." The SOCPC did not accept these recommendations, based on Classification Principle 1 which states that occupations are assigned to only one occupational category. The commenter describes very specialized functions or tasks that may be performed by workers in several occupations. The SOCPC also questioned whether agencies can reliably collect and report data on these occupations, as required by Classification Principle 9.
