ACTION: Notice of Availability. SUMMARY: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is announcing the availability of a final document entitled, ‘‘Integrated Science Assessment for Oxides of Nitrogen and Sulfur— Ecological Criteria,’’ and the supplementary annexes (EPA/600/R–08/ 082F). The document was prepared by the National Center for Environmental Assessment (NCEA) within EPA’s Office of Research and Development as part of the review of the secondary National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for oxides of nitrogen and sulfur. EPA’s secondary NAAQS are based on ecological and welfare effects. PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 DATES: The document will be available on or about December 12, 2008. ADDRESSES: The ‘‘Integrated Science Assessment for Oxides of Nitrogen and Sulfur—Environmental Criteria’’ will be available primarily via the Internet on the National Center for Environmental Assessment’s home page under the Recent Additions and Publications menus at https://www.epa.gov/ncea. A limited number of CD–ROM or paper copies will be available. Contact Ms. Ellen Lorang by phone (919–541–2771), fax (919–541–5078), or e-mail (lorang.ellen@epa.gov) to request either of these, and please provide your name, your mailing address, and the document title, ‘‘Integrated Science Assessment for Oxides of Nitrogen and Sulfur— Environmental Criteria’’ (EPA/600/R– 08/082F), to facilitate processing of your request. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For technical information, contact Tara Greaver, Ph.D., NCEA [telephone: 919– 541–2435; facsimile: 919–541–5078; or e-mail: greaver.tara@epa.gov]. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 108(a) of the Clean Air Act directs the Administrator to identify certain pollutants that ‘‘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 NAAQS for each pollutant for which EPA has issued criteria. Section 109(d) of the Act requires subsequent 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 air quality criteria. Oxides of nitrogen and sulfur are two of six principal (or ‘‘criteria’’) pollutants for which EPA has established air quality criteria and NAAQS. EPA periodically reviews the scientific basis for these standards by preparing an Integrated Science Assessment (ISA) (formerly called an Air Quality Criteria Document). The ISA and supplementary annexes, in conjunction with additional technical and policy assessments, provide the scientific basis for EPA decisions on the adequacy of a current NAAQS and the appropriateness of new or revised standards.
