Committee (CASAC) to conduct a peer review of the proposed Federal 
Reference Method (FRM) for the measurement of lead (Pb) in particulate 
matter less than 10 micrometers in diameter (PM10) in 
ambient air, and a consultation concerning the need and approaches for 
the development of a low-volume ambient air monitor for Pb in total 
suspended particulate (TSP) FRM or Federal Equivalent Method (FEM); and

    Section 109(d)(1) of the CAA requires that the Agency periodically 
review and revise, as appropriate, the air quality criteria and the 
NAAQS for the six ``criteria'' air pollutants, including lead. EPA 
initiated its current review of the NAAQS for lead in early 2005. In 
March 2008, the Subcommittee held a public teleconference meeting to 
conduct a consultation on technical issues relating to the ambient air 
monitoring of Pb-PM10, including options for the Lead NAAQS 
indicator, a draft Federal Reference Method (FRM) for Pb-
PM10, lead monitoring network design, and sampling 
frequency. The CASAC's report to the EPA Administrator concerning this 
consultation (EPA-CASAC-08-010, dated April 14, 2008) is available on 
the EPA Web site at https://yosemite.epa.gov/sab/sabproduct.nsf/
