EPA's National Center for Environmental Economics has requested SAB review of EPA’s revised Guidelines for Preparing Economic Analyses. EPA last issued Guidelines for Preparing Economic Analyses in September 2000 to represent Agency policy on the preparation of economic analysis required by legislation and administrative orders. EPA received advice from the SAB in developing those Guidelines.

Since 2000, there has been considerable new economic research and EPA has received new guidance from the Office of Management and Budget pertaining to the Agency’s conduct of regulatory analysis. In response, NCEE has revised and updated the Guidelines and has requested SAB review.
