How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*BACKGROUND : EPA’s Advisory Council on Clean Air Compliance Analysis (Council), established under the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, provided advice to the Administrator on technical and economic aspects of EPA analyses and reports concerning the impact of EPA regulations under the Clean Air Act on public health, the economy and the environment of the United States. In over 30 advisory reports to the Administrator, the Council provided advice and peer review of numerous technical studies and reports leading up to three EPA reports (often called Section 812 Studies after the section in the CAA Amendments of 1990 that established the requirement) on the costs and benefits of the CAA: (1) a retrospective study for 1970-1990; (2) the first prospective study for 1990 - 2010; and (3) the second prospective study for 1990-2020. In FY 2015, the EPA determined that the Council had completed its work under Section 312 of the Clean Air Act and was no longer needed. The charter expired on November 9, 2014, after which the Council automatically terminated.
How is membership balanced?*The Council was comprised of members drawn from academia, states, industry, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), with expertise in air quality modeling and monitoring, health and ecological effects of air pollutants, and economic analysis of benefits and costs of air pollution control.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The Council was a statutory Federal advisory committee [See Clean Air Act (CAA) Amendments of 1990 (CAAA-90)] formed under the administrative auspices of the Agency's Science Advisory Board (SAB) Staff Office. The Council reported directly to the EPA Administrator and had a separate charter. The Council generally met 2 to 3 times each year.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The Council fulfilled its statutory mission of providing advice to the EPA on analyses pertaining to the costs and benefits of the Clean Air Act.
Why close or partially close meetings?No committee meetings were held in FY 2015.
