The draft Reassessment underwent reviews by both the public and EPA's Science Advisory Board (SAB). The SAB supported the general approach used to produce the draft inventory, but suggested several changes. Most notably, the SAB recommended that the inventory be specific about the time frame it represents. In response to all of these comments and the availability of additional data, a number of changes have been made to the inventory since the 1994 draft.
These changes have resulted in significant revisions to both the inventory structure and actual emission estimates. Consequently, ORD has decided it would be prudent to conduct an additional round of peer review of the revised inventory before incorporating it into the final Reassessment.
