EPA Applies DQA Pre-Dissemination Review to Report on Environment
On May 10, 2007, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced a 45-day public comment period on "EPA’s 2007 Report on the Environment: Science Report." The public comment period precedes a formal scientific peer review of the draft report by EPA’s Science Advisory Board on July 10-12, 2007.

EPA stated in its announcement that "EPA is releasing this draft document solely for the purpose of pre-dissemination peer review under applicable information quality guidelines."

CRE commends EPA for the Agency’s efforts to comply with the pre-dissemination review requirements of the Data Quality Act.

EPA states that the purpose of this draft report "is to compile the most reliable indicators currently available that help answer a series of questions about trends in the environment and human health that EPA believes are of critical importance to its mission and to the national interest."

Comments on the draft report are due to EPA by June 25, 2007.
