Discussion Paper for CASAC Diesel Health Assessment Issues
In October 1998, the U.S. EPA's Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee (CASAC) provided peer review comments on a draft Health Assessment Document for Diesel Emissions (EPA/600/8-90/057C, February 1998). The U.S. EPA's National Center for Environmental Assessment requested a consultation with CASAC to discuss the ongoing risk assessment approach for addressing the major CASAC comments. The contents of this discussion paper are draft, do not cite or quote in all respects and should not be interpreted to be final risk assessment conclusions or Agency policy. A fully revised Diesel Health Assessment Document is expected to be available for peer review and public comment in October 1999.
