EPA's Office of Air and Radiation (OAR) has requested that the Science Advisory Board (SAB) review its proposed Risk and Technology Review (RTR) Assessment plan, a proposed methodology to streamline assessments of Hazardous Air Pollutants to justify decisions about more stringent emissions standards for specific source categories.

The SAB provided advice in a consultation on the RTR Assessment Plan in December 2006 Consultation on EPA’s Risk and Technology Review (RTR) Assessment Plan (EPA-SAB-07-009) . OAR has requested SAB advice on draft risk assessments developed under the RTR II approach, as modified to reflect SAB recommendations. These draft risk assessments will evaluate the potential risks to human health and the environment that remain after sources come into compliance with MACT.
