On May 21, 2018, Vanessa Allen Sutherland announced she would step down from her position of Chairperson and board member of the U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board. The resignation is effective next month.

The remaining CSB board members will vote on a new interim executive unless the White House nominates and the Senate confirms a new Chairperson.
