EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation has requested CASAC consultative advice on a draft document, "EPA’s Nitrogen Dioxide Health Assessment Plan: Scope and Methods for Exposure and Risk Assessment" (September 2007), intended to outline the scope and approaches for conducting an exposure analysis and human health risk assessment for nitrogen dioxide.
Under the Clean Air Act, EPA is required to carry out a periodic review and revision, as appropriate, of the air quality criteria and the primary and secondary standards for six criteria air pollutants, which include oxides of nitrogen. Primary standards set limits to protect public health, including the health of "sensitive" populations such as asthmatics, children, and the elderly.
