One of the next steps in this process was to prepare a project work plan for the revision of the existing Air Quality Criteria Document (AQCD) for lead and to provide for public review of that draft plan. Accordingly, a draft of EPA’s ‘‘Project Work Plan for Revised Air Quality Criteria for Lead’’ (NCEA– R–1465) was released in January 2005 for public comment and was discussed by the Clean Air Science Advisory Committee (CASAC) via a publicly accessible March 28, 2005, teleconference consultation. The purpose of these workshops announced in this notice is to obtain peer consultative discussion and feedback from a panel of invited experts with regard to the scope of issues addressed, completeness of coverage of available pertinent literature, scientific accuracy and appropriateness of the assessments of such literature, and the soundness of the interpretations and conclusions related to the evidence assessed in the initial draft materials being prepared for inclusion in the revised Lead AQCD. This includes evaluation of scientific research on environmental sources, transport, and distribution of ambient lead, human lead exposures and lead health effects, ecological impacts, and other impacts related to air quality as described in Section 108(a) of the Clean Air Act.
