ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY [FRL–7940–1] Air Quality Criteria Document for Lead Environmental Protection Agency. ACTION: Notice of workshops. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Research and Development’s National Center for Environmental Assessment (NCEA) is reviewing and, as appropriate, revising the EPA document, ‘‘Air Quality Criteria for Lead,’’ EPA–600/8–83/028aF–dF (published in June 1986) and an associated supplement (EPA–600/8–89/ 049F) published in 1990. As part of this PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 41007 process, several workshops are planned to discuss, with invited recognized scientific experts, initial draft materials that deal with various lead-related issues being addressed in the revised ‘‘Lead Air Quality Criteria Document’’ (Lead AQCD) now being prepared by NCEA. DATES: The first workshop will be held during August 4–5, 2005, and will focus on lead-related ecological issues. Another workshop to be held August 16–18, 2005, will deal with sources, emissions, environmental distribution, human exposures, biokinetic modeling of lead exposure and uptake, and with biological distribution of lead to blood, bone, teeth and soft tissues. A third workshop, to be held August 17–19, 2005, will deal with lead-related health effects. All the workshops will be held at the Carolina Inn in Research Triangle Park, NC. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Space is limited at the workshops. Please contact Ms. Joanna Hannah at Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), telephone: 443– 402–9361, FAX: 443–402–9854, e-mail: HannahJ@SAIC-abingdon.com to register your attendance at the workshops. SAIC will provide details on the locations and times of each workshop. For technical information, contact Robert Elias, PhD, NCEA, facsimile: 919–541–1818 or email: elias.robert@epa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 108(a) of the Clean Air Act directs the Administrator to identify certain pollutants which ‘‘may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health and welfare’’ and to issue air quality criteria for them. These air quality criteria are to ‘‘accurately reflect the latest scientific knowledge useful in indicating the kind and extent of all identifiable effects on public health or welfare which may be expected from the presence of [a] pollutant in the ambient air * * *’’ Under section 109 of the Act, EPA is then to establish National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for each pollutant for which EPA has issued criteria. Section 109(d) of the Act subsequently requires periodic review and, if appropriate, revision of existing air quality criteria to reflect advances in scientific knowledge on the effects of the pollutant on public health and welfare. EPA is also to revise the NAAQS, if appropriate, based on the revised criteria. Lead is one of six ‘‘criteria’’ pollutants for which EPA has established air quality criteria and NAAQS.
