Regulatory Impact Analysis of the Final Revisions to the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for Ground-Level Ozone The EPA performed an illustrative analysis of the potential costs, human health benefits, and welfare benefits of nationally attaining a revised primary ozone standard of 70 ppb and a primary alternative ozone standard level of 65 ppb.

Based on this information, EPA has issued final revisions to strengthen the particulate matter standards by keeping the current micron standards and adding new provide more stringent goals for fine particles in air.

REVIEW OF THE OZONE STANDARDS • The Clean Air Act directs EPA to set National Ambient Air Quality Standards for pollutants considered harmful to public health and the environment. National standards exist for six pollutants: ozone, particulate matter, carbon monoxide, lead, nitrogen dioxide, and sulfur dioxide.

the Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee (CASAC). The act directs CASAC to review the NAAQS every five years and recommend to the EPA Administrator “any new national ambient air quality standards Final revisions to the ozone and particulate matter air quality standards book revisions as §(d)(2)).

EPA’sReview of the NAAQS Beyond the aforementioned CAA requirements, procedural. National ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for "criteria" pollutants "Primary" standards to protect public health with an adequate margin of safety; "Secondary" standards to protect public welfare and the environment NAAQS set for: ground-level ozone (smog), particulate matter (measured as PM 10), carbon.

the Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee (CASAC). The act directs CASAC to review the NAAQS every five years and recommend to the EPA Administrator “any new national ambient air quality standards and revisions as may be appropriate” (42 U.S.C. §(d)(2)). EPA’s Review of the NAAQS Beyond the aforementioned CAA requirements, procedural.

On Octothe Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published its final revisions to the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for particulate matter (particulates, or PM). The revised Index includes modifications to the ozone sub-index and a new sub-index for fine particulate matter.

These changes to the Index are based on health effects information from the review of the ozone and particulate matter standards, as well as information and feedback provided by state and local agencies and the public. The WHO air quality guidelines offer guidance on reducing the effects on health of air pollution.

This book presents revised guideline values for the four most common air pollutants - particulate matter, ozone, nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide - based on a recent review of the accumulated scientific evidence.

In ministers adopted the Air Quality Management System as a new comprehensive approach to managing air issues. Included in the system are Canadian Ambient Air Quality Standards for Fine Particulate Matter and Ozone, which replace the Canada-wide Standards developed in The CAAQS values and management levels are in the table below.

EPA has completed the process of updating and revising, where appropriate, its Air Quality Criteria for Particulate Matter (PM) as issued in (usually referred to as the Criteria Document). Sections and of the Clean Air Act require that EPA carry out a periodic review and revision, where appropriate, of the air quality criteria (embodied in the Criteria.

The final assessment states that ” the available scientific evidence, air quality analyses, and the risk assessment can reasonably be viewed as calling into question the adequacy of the public health protection afforded by the combination of the current annual and hour primary PM standards.

Particulate Matter (PM) was listed in the Criteria document issued by the EPA. In Aprilthe EPA created a Second External Review Draft of the Air Quality Criteria for PM, which addressed updated studies done on particulate matter and the modified pollutant standards done since the First External Review Draft.
