The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is conducting a review of the national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for nitrogen dioxide (NO2). Sections 108 and 109 of the Clean Air Act (The Act) govern the establishment and periodic review of the air quality criteria and the NAAQS. These standards are established for pollutants that may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health or welfare, and whose presence in the ambient air results from numerous or diverse mobile or stationary sources. The NAAQS are based on air quality criteria, which reflect the latest scientific knowledge useful in indicating the kind and extent of identifiable effects on public health or welfare that may be expected from the presence of the pollutant in ambient air. The EPA Administrator promulgates and periodically reviews primary (health-based) and secondary (welfare-based) NAAQS for such pollutants. Based on periodic reviews of the air quality criteria and standards, the Administrator makes revisions in the criteria and standards and promulgates any new standards as may be appropriate. The Act also requires that an independent scientific review committee advise the Administrator as part of this NAAQS review process, a function now performed by the Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee (CASAC).
