Review of the Primary National Ambient Air Quality Standards for Oxides of Nitrogen
a.k.a. NO2 NAAQS Review
RIN: 2060-AR57 (What's this?)
Docket No.: Not yet available (What's this?)
Current Phase: Proposal (What's this?)
Under the Clean Air Act, as amended, the EPA is required to review and if appropriate revise the air quality criteria for the primary (health-based) and secondary (welfare-based) national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) every 5 years. On February 9, 2010, the EPA published a final rule revising the primary NO2 NAAQS to provide increased protection for public health.

This rule is likely to address an adverse impact on childhood lifestages, including prenatal (via exposure to women of childbearing age). The potential adverse impacts are expected to be due to toxicity (i.e., the developing fetus, infants, and/or children are more likely to have an adverse response than adult lifestages).
This rulemaking involves a topic that is likely to be of particular interest to or have particular impact upon minority, low-income, tribal, and/or other vulnerable populations because:
- This topic is likely to impact the health of vulnerable populations.
- This topic is likely to impact the environmental conditions of vulnerable populations.
- This topic is likely to present an opportunity to address an existing disproportionate impact on vulnerable populations.
Some of EPA's rulemakings undergo regulatory review (What's this?), as prescribed by Executive Order 12866 and coordinated by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The following list describes which of this rulemaking's stages have completed review and published in the Federal Register, if any, and provides links to the review documents where available. Consult the "Timeline" section of this Web page for the dates of each review.
