SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: The Advisory Council on Clean Air Compliance Analysis (Council) was established pursuant to Section 812 of the Clean Air Act (CAA) Amendments of 1990 (codified as 42 U.S.C. 7612) to provide independent advice to the Administrator on technical and economic aspects of analyses and reports EPA prepares on the impacts of the CAA on the public health, economy, and environment of the United States. The Council is a Federal Advisory Committee chartered under the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), 5 U.S.C., App. 2. Pursuant to FACA and EPA policy, notice is hereby given that the Council augmented with additional experts (hereafter referred to as the Black Carbon Review Panel) will hold a public meeting to review EPA’s Draft Report to Congress on Black Carbon.

L. 111–88) requires the EPA, in consultation with other Federal agencies, to prepare a comprehensive report to Congress on the climate effects of black carbon. Black carbon, or soot, results from incomplete combustion of organic matter such as fossil fuels and biomass. The report to Congress will evaluate and synthesize available information on sources of black carbon, impacts of black carbon on global and regional climate, and the potential utility and cost-effectiveness of mitigation options for reducing climate and public health impacts of black carbon. EPA’s Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards (OAQPS) requested that the Council review the draft Report to Congress on Black Carbon to evaluate the report’s scientific rigor, completeness, and technical accuracy. To conduct this review, the Council was augmented with additional experts in climate modeling and black carbon emissions, impacts, and control strategies.

(Council) was established pursuant to Section 812 of the Clean Air Act 
(CAA) Amendments of 1990 (codified as 42 U.S.C. 7612) to provide 
independent advice to the Administrator on technical and economic 
aspects of analyses and reports EPA prepares on the impacts of the CAA
