EPA has performed an illustrative analysis of the potential costs and human health benefits of nationally attaining alternative ozone standards. Per Executive Order 12866 and the guidelines of OMB Circular A-4, this Regulatory Impact Analysis (RIA) presents analyses of the range of standards proposed by the Administrator in the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (0.070 0.075 ppm), as well as one more stringent option (0.065 ppm). The less stringent option is the baseline, or the current primary standard for ozone (0.08 ppm, effectively 0.084 ppm due to current rounding conventions). The benefit and cost estimates below are calculated incremental to a 2020 baseline that incorporates air quality improvements achieved through the projected implementation of existing regulations and full attainment of the existing ozone and particulate matter (PM) National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). The baseline includes the Clean Air Interstate Rule and mobile source programs, which will help many areas move toward attainment of the current standard.
