EPA has announced that a workshop on Assessment of Health Science for the Review of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for Nitrogen (NOX) and Sulfur Oxides (SOX) is being organized by EPA's National Center for Environmental Assessment (NCEA), in conjunction with the Office of Air Quality Planning Standards (OAQPS), and will be held on February 26-28, 2007. This was announced in a February 9, 2007 Federal Register Notice.
NCEA is holding this workshop to inform the Agency's assessment process of the existing scientific evidence for the review of the NAAQS for the criteria pollutants NOx and SOx. The workshop will address various issues involved in the preparation of the draft material for the ISA and SASD and issues involved in the integration of health evidence from both animal and human toxicology and epidemiology studies, along with key information from atmospheric science and exposure studies. This workshop is planned to help ensure that the SASD provides an up-to-date, state of the art scientific basis for the review of the NAAQS for these criteria pollutants. Workshop discussions will be focused on identifying and integrating policy relevant health findings in the ISA and for future risk and exposure analyses.
