The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is conducting a review of the primary (health-based) national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for nitrogen dioxide (NO2). This Integrated Review Plan (IRP) presents the planned approach for the review. This review will provide an integrative assessment of relevant scientific information for oxides of nitrogen and will focus on the basic elements that define the NAAQS: the indicator,1 averaging time,2 form,3 and level.4 The EPA Administrator will consider these elements collectively in evaluating the protection to public health afforded by the primary NO2 standards. This document is organized into eight chapters. Chapter 1 summarizes the legislative requirements for the review of the NAAQS (section 1.1), summarizes the review process (section 1.2), provides an overview of past reviews of the primary NO2 NAAQS (section 1.3), and outlines the scope of the current review (section 1.4). Chapter 2 presents the status and schedule for the current review. Chapter 3 provides background on the key issues and uncertainties that informed the final decisions in the last review and presents a set of policy-relevant questions that will serve to focus this 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 the documents, plans for scientific and public review of the documents, and specific ambient air quality monitoring considerations. Complete reference citations are provided in Chapter 8.
