Under section 109 (42 U.S.C. 7409) the Administrator is to establish national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for each pollutant for which EPA has issued criteria. Section 109(d)(1) 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 or welfare. EPA is also to revise the NAAQS, if appropriate, based on the revised air quality criteria. Section 109(d)(2) requires that an independent scientific review committee ‘‘shall complete a review of the criteria * * * and the national primary and secondary ambient air quality standards * * * and shall recommend to the Administrator any new * * * standards and revisions of existing criteria and standards as may be appropriate . * * *’’ Since the early 1980’s, this independent review function has been performed by the Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee (CASAC).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Information About the Document

    Two sections of the Clean Air Act (CAA) govern the establishment 
and revision of the NAAQS. Section 108 (42 U.S.C. section 7408) directs 
the Administrator to identify and list certain air pollutants and then 
to issue air quality criteria for those pollutants. The Administrator 
is to list those air pollutants that in her ``judgment, cause or 
contribute to air pollution which may reasonably be anticipated to 
endanger public health or welfare;'' ``the presence of which in the 
ambient air results from numerous or diverse mobile or stationary 
sources;'' and ``for which * * * [the Administrator] plans to issue air 
quality criteria * * *.'' Air quality criteria are intended 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* * *.'' 42 U.S.C. 7408(b). Under section 
109 (42 U.S.C. 7409) the Administrator is to establish national ambient 
air quality standards (NAAQS) for each pollutant for which EPA has 
issued criteria. Section 109(d)(1) 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 or welfare. EPA is also to revise the NAAQS, if 
appropriate, based on the revised air quality criteria. Section 
109(d)(2) requires that an independent scientific review committee 
``shall complete a review of the criteria * * * and the national 
primary and secondary ambient air quality standards * * * and shall 
recommend to the Administrator any new * * * standards and revisions of 
existing criteria and standards as may be appropriate . * * *'' Since 
the early 1980's, this independent review function has been performed 
by the Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee (CASAC).
    Under the current NAAQS review process, EPA reviews the scientific 
basis for the NAAQS by preparing an Integrated Science Assessment (ISA) 
and supplementary materials (formerly called an Air Quality Criteria 
Document). On February 26, 2010 (75 FR 8934), EPA formally initiated 
its current review of the air quality criteria for Pb, requesting the 
submission of recent scientific information on specified topics. A 
workshop was held on May 10-11, 2010 (75 FR 20843) to discuss policy-
relevant science to inform EPA's planning for the Pb NAAQS review. 
Following the workshop, a draft of EPA's ``Integrated Review Plan for 
the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for Lead'' (EPA-452/D-11-
001) was made available in late March, 2011 for public comment and 
consultation with CASAC. It will be discussed by the CASAC via a 
publicly accessible teleconference consultation on May 5, 2011 (76 FR 
21346). In December 2010, EPA held a workshop (75 FR 69078) to discuss, 
with invited scientific experts, preliminary draft materials prepared 
during the ongoing development of the Pb ISA.
    The first external review draft ISA for Pb will be discussed at a 
public meeting for review by CASAC, and public comments received will 
be provided to the CASAC review panel. A future Federal Register notice 
will inform the public of the exact date and time of that CASAC 
meeting.

    Instructions: Direct your comments to Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-ORD-
2011-0051. Please ensure that your comments are submitted within the 
specified comment period. Comments received after the closing date will 
be marked ``late,'' and may only be considered if time permits. It is 
EPA's policy to include all comments it receives in the public docket 
without change and to make the comments available online at http://www.regulations.gov, including any personal information provided, 
unless a comment includes information claimed to be Confidential 
Business Information (CBI) or other information whose disclosure is 
restricted by statute. Do not submit information through http://www.regulations.gov or e-mail

that you consider to be CBI or otherwise protected. The http://www.regulations.gov Web site is an ``anonymous access'' system, which 
means EPA will not know your identity or contact information unless you 
provide it in the body of your comment. If you send an e-mail comment 
directly to EPA without going through http://www.regulations.gov, your 
e-mail address will be automatically captured and included as part of 
the comment that is placed in the public docket and made available on 
the Internet. If you submit an electronic comment, EPA recommends that 
you include your name and other contact information in the body of your 
comment and with any disk or CD-ROM you submit. If EPA cannot read your 
comment due to technical difficulties and cannot contact you for 
clarification, EPA may not be able to consider your comment. Electronic 
files should avoid the use of special characters, any form of 
encryption, and be free of any defects or viruses. For additional 
information about EPA's public docket visit the EPA Docket Center 
homepage at http://www.epa.gov/epahome/dockets.htm.
    Docket: Documents in the docket are listed in the http://www.regulations.gov index. Although listed in the index, some 
information is not publicly available, e.g., CBI or other information 
whose disclosure is restricted by statute. Publicly available docket 
materials are generally available either electronically in http://www.regulations.gov or in hard copy at the OEI Docket in the EPA 
Headquarters Docket Center; however, certain materials, such as 
copyrighted material, are publicly available only in hard copy.
