The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is presently conducting a review of the particulate matter (PM) national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS). The EPA's overall plan and schedule for this PM NAAQS review were presented in the Integrated Review Plan for the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for Particulate Matter (US EPA, 2008a). The Integrated Review Plan (IRP) outlined the Clean Air Act (CAA) requirements related to the establishment and reviews of the NAAQS, the process and schedule for conducting the current PM NAAQS review, and the key components in the NAAQS review process: an Integrated Science Assessment (ISA), Risk and Exposure Assessments (REAs, referred to as assessment documents), and policy assessment/rulemaking. It also presented the key policy-relevant issues to be addressed in this review as a series of questions that frames our approach to determining whether the current primary (health-based) and secondary (welfare-based) NAAQS for PM should be retained or revised.
