Response to Comment on 2010 SOC:
Docket Number 08-1154

Docket No. 08-1154 requested two new detailed occupations: "Automation Engineers" and "Control System Technicians." The SOCPC did not accept these recommendations, based on Classification Principle 1 which states that occupations are assigned to only one occupational category. The titles "Automation Engineers" and "Control System Technicians" are so broad these workers could fit into multiple SOC occupations, depending on the work performed.
