To add a bit more to the answers so far, I think of the Division as being more entrepreneurial and emerging issue oriented, while the Committee is more peer-reviewed and responds primarily to well-established chemical hazards. In this way, they form an important synergy in addressing chemical safety issues.

FWIW, interesting background information on the formation of DCHAS in 1979 can be found in an interview with Dr. Glenn Seaborg at
