The Working Group’s report and proposals, which are presented here in brief and available on https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefingroom/presidential-actions/related-ombmaterial and on http:// www.regulations.gov in their entirety, are the result of a two-year, focused review of the implementation of the current standards.
