BACKGROUND.

Human exposure to lead may cause a variety of adverse health effects, particularly in children. EPA’s Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics (OPPT) regulates toxic substances, such as lead, through the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). In 2001, EPA established standards for lead-based paint hazards, which include lead in residential dust. OPPT is developing draft technical analyses that will be used to support: (a) possible revision of existing residential lead-based paint dust hazard standards, (b) the development of new lead-based paint dust hazard standards for public and commercial buildings, and (c) the development of lead-safe work practice standards for renovations of public and commercial buildings. OPPT has requested that the SAB conduct a review of these draft technical analyses.
