Docket Number 08‐0913 : Response to Comments on 2010 SOC : U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics

Docket No. 08-0913 requested changing the title for 31-9094 Medical Transcriptionists to "Medical Language Specialists" and expanding the job duties described in the definition. The SOCPC did not accept the recommendation for the proposed title because it is not common enough to merit changing a well-established occupation title. The SOCPC recognized the commenter's concerns regarding the 2000 SOC definition and noted that the definition will be modified to update the description of job duties.
