The principal objective of the document is to provide the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with a sound scientific basis for review and revision, as appropriate, of the national emission standard for asbestos, 40 CFR 61, subpart B, as required by the 1977 Clean Air Act Amendments, Sections 111 and 112. The health effects basis for designating asbestos as a hazardous pollutant and minimizing emissions via the original 1973 National Emissions Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants was scrutinized, at that time, during two public hearings and a public comment period.
