Reviewing National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS)

Lead (Pb) Standards - Federal Register Notices from Review Completed in 2016

Over the course of each NAAQS review, EPA publishes notices in the Federal Register for a variety of activities:  the kick-off workshop and call for information, CASAC meetings, availability of pre-rulemaking documents and opportunities for comment on these documents, as well as proposed and final rulemaking decisions and public hearings on a proposed rulemaking decision.

You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page. See EPA’s About PDF page to learn more.
