EPA's Office of Research and Development requested Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee (CASAC) peer review of the First External Review Draft of EPA’s Air Quality Criterial Document for Lead and its supporting documentation. The Clean Air Act requires periodic (5-year) update revision of criteria and National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for Lead. CASAC advice will help strengthen the scientific bases for the risk assessment (OAQPS Staff Paper) supporting OAR's review of the NAAQS for Lead.
