Tropospheric or surface-level ozone (O3) is one of six major air pollutants regulated by National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) under the U.S. Clean Air Act. As mandated by the Clean Air Act, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) must periodically review the scientific bases (or criteria) for the various NAAQS by assessing newly available scientific information on a given criteria air pollutant. This document, Air Quality Criteria for Ozone and Other Photochemical Oxidants, is an updated revision of the 1996 Ozone Air Quality Criteria Document (O3 AQCD) that provided scientific bases for the current O3 NAAQS set in 1997.

"The purpose of this revised air quality criteria document for Ob3s and related photochemical oxidants is to critically evaluate and assess the latest scientific information published since that assessed in the ... 1996 Ob3s [Air quality criteria document], with the main focus being on pertinent new information useful in evaluating health and environmental effects data associated with ambient air Ob3s exposures ... This document mainly assesses pertinent literature published through 2004, but also includes assessment of a few additional important studies published or accepted for publication in 2005"--P. I-iii
