The agency's Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards (OAQPS) announced the availability of a final document titled Policy Assessment for the Review of the Carbon Monoxide National Ambient Air Quality Standards . The policy analysis contains staff analyses of the scientific bases for alternative policy options for consideration by the agency prior to rulemaking.
The document is available at www.epa.gov/ttn/naaqs/standards/co/s_co_index.html.
Based off of a staff paper, the document is a frank discussion of agency analysis on current policy and potential future regulatory efforts, prepared to help the EPA Administrator determine whether to change or replace the current standard.
