The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is conducting a review of the primary (health-based) national ambient air quality standard (NAAQS) for sulfur oxides (SOX). This Integrated Review Plan (IRP) presents the planned approach for the review. This review will provide an integrative assessment of relevant scientific information for SOX and will focus on the basic elements that define the NAAQS: the indicator, averaging time, form, and level. These elements will be considered collectively in evaluating the protection to public health afforded by the primary standard(s). This document is organized into eight chapters. Chapter 1 presents the legislative requirements for the review of the NAAQS, background information on the review process, scope of the current review, and an overview of past reviews of the primary SO2 NAAQS.5 Chapter 2 presents the status and schedule for the current review. Chapter 3 summarizes the approach in the last review and presents a set of policy-relevant questions that will serve to focus the current review on the critical scientific and policy issues. Chapters 4 through 7 discuss the planned scope and organization of key assessment documents, the planned approaches for preparing these documents, specific ambient air quality monitoring considerations, as well as plans for scientific and public review of these documents. Complete reference citations are provided in chapter 8.
