The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is presently conducting a review of the national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for ozone (O3), and related photochemical oxidants. The NAAQS review process includes four key phases: planning, science assessment, risk/exposure assessment, and policy assessment/rulemaking.1 This process and the overall plan for this review of the O3 NAAQS is presented in the Integrated Review Plan for the Ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standards (IRP; U.S. EPA, 2011a). The IRP additionally presents the schedule for the review; identifies key policy-relevant issues; and discusses the key scientific, technical, and policy documents. These documents include an Integrated Science Assessment (ISA), Risk and Exposure Assessments (REAs), and a Policy Assessment (PA). This Health REA (HREA) is one of the two quantitative REAs developed for the review by the EPAs Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards (OAQPS); the second is a Welfare REA (WREA). This HREA focuses on assessments to inform consideration of the review of the primary (healthbased) NAAQS for O3. The existing primary (health-based) NAAQS for O3 is set at a level of 75 ppb (0.075 ppm), based on the annual fourth-highest daily maximum 8-hour average concentration, averaged over three years, and the secondary standard is identical to the primary standard (73 FR 16436). Initial nonattainment area designations have been made for 46 areas in the U.S. with ambient O3 concentrations exceeding the existing standard (77 FR 30160).
