Response to Comment on 2010 SOC:
Docket Number 08-0331

Docket No. 08-0331 requested three new detailed occupations: "Culinary Scientists," "Research Chefs," and "Culinologists." The SOCPC did not accept this recommendation, based on Classification Principle 1 which states that occupations are assigned to only one occupational category and Classification Principle 9 on collectability. The committee determined the tasks performed in the proposed occupations are already covered by existing SOC occupations, such as 19-1012 Food Scientists and Technologists and 35-1011 Chefs and Head Cooks.
