The Clean Air Act requires EPA to identify and regulate 30 or more of the 'worst' hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) from area sources. The report examines our ability to identify those 'worst' HAPs in a scientifically credible manner. The report considers our current knowledge from the perspective of the risk assessment - risk management paradigm. It evaluates the availability of data one: area sources of HAPs; concentrations of HAPs to which people are exposed; and cancer or noncancer health effects. In general, a great deal of data was available in each area on a few chemicals, but little or no data were available for many chemicals. In addition to the 189 listed HAPs, other chemicals, such as those produced by atmospheric transformation, may also be of concern.
