Response to Comment on 2010 SOC:
Docket Number 08-0462

Docket No. 08-0462 requested a new detailed occupation for "Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine." The SOCPC did not accept this recommendation, based on Classification Principle 1 which states that occupations are assigned to only one occupational category. Oriental medicine is not uniformly defined as a field, and aspects of oriental medicine are practiced widely by healthcare providers in more than one SOC occupation.
