"The InterAgency Board (IAB) is a voluntary, collaborative panel of emergency preparedness and response practitioners from a wide array of professional disciplines that represents all levels of government and operational, technical , and support organizations. The IAB provides a structured forum for the exchange of ideas to improve national preparedness and promote interoperability and compatibility among local, state, and federal response communities. Based on direct field experience, IAB members advocate for and assist with the development and implementation of performance criteria, standards, test protocols, and technical, operating, and training requirements for all-hazards incident response equipment with a special emphasis on CBRNE issues. The IAB also informs broader emergency preparedness and response policy, doctrine, and practice."
