ABSTRACT
The article reports on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) staff policy assessment which concluded that the existing federal primary air quality standard for fine particulate matter must be tightened to a level in the range of 13 to 11 micrograms per cubic meter. It notes that the recommendations are applicable to particulate matter that is 2.5 microns in diameter (PM2.5). According to the staff, protection from both long- and short-term exposures can be most effectively and efficiently provided by relying mainly on the annual PM2.5 standard.
