7409(d)(2), to review air quality criteria and NAAQS and recommend any 
new NAAQS and revisions of existing criteria and NAAQS as may be 
appropriate. The CASAC shall also provide advice, information, and 
recommendations to the Administrator on the scientific and technical 
aspects of issues related to the criteria for air quality standards, 
research related to air quality, sources of air pollution, and of 
adverse effects which may result from various strategies to attain and 
maintain air quality standards. The CASAC is a Federal Advisory 
Committee chartered under the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), 5 
U.S.C., App. 2. Section 109(d)(1) of the CAA requires that the Agency 
periodically review and revise, as appropriate, the air quality

including oxides of nitrogen. EPA is currently reviewing the primary 
(health-based) NAAQS for nitrogen dioxide (NO2), as an 
indicator for health effects caused by the presence of oxides of 
nitrogen in the ambient air.
    For purposes of the review of the oxides of nitrogen air quality 
criteria for health and the primary NAAQS for nitrogen dioxide, the 
CASAC Oxides of Nitrogen Primary National Ambient Air Quality Standards 
Review Panel was formed following a request for public nominations of 
experts (77 FR 63827-63828) and met on March 12-13, 2014 (as noticed in

Oxides of Nitrogen--Health Criteria (External Review Draft--November 
2013) and Integrated Review Plan for the Primary National Ambient Air 
Quality Standards for Nitrogen Dioxide (External Review Draft). 
Information about these review activities may be found on the CASAC Web

Oxides of Nitrogen Primary NAAQS Review Panel and the CASAC will comply 
with the provisions of FACA and all appropriate SAB Staff Office 
procedural policies.
    Technical Contacts: Any technical questions concerning the 
Integrated Science Assessment for Oxides of Nitrogen--Health Criteria 
(External Review Draft--November 2013) should be directed to Dr. Molini 
Patel (patel.molini@epa.gov) and technical questions concerning the 
Integrated Review Plan for the Primary National Ambient Air Quality 
Standards for Nitrogen Dioxide (External Review Draft) should be
