WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Boeing Co <BA.N> is expected to testify at an upcoming U.S. Senate Commerce Committee hearing on aviation safety, a spokeswoman for the panel said Wednesday.

The announcement came after the company’s board said Wednesday it created a new permanent safety committee to oversee development, manufacturing and operation of its aircraft and services in the aftermath of two fatal 737 MAX crashes. The committee’s chairman, Senator Roger Wicker, said he was happy to see Boeing had released long-awaited recommendations and looks forward to learning more about the recommendations “and other conclusions Boeing has made at the aviation safety hearing I plan to call very soon.”

Boeing did not immediately comment.
