EPA/AR RIN: 2060-AS00 Publication ID: Fall 2013 
Title: ●Revisions to Ambient Monitoring Quality Assurance and Other Requirements 
Abstract: Quality assurance (QA) and other ambient monitoring requirements have become increasingly complex due to the many revisions to the national ambient air quality standards since 2008. This complexity has increased the burden on state and local agencies who must comply with the requirements as well as the EPA Regions and Headquarters staff that must interpret the regulations and provide supplemental explanatory guidance. This action will reduce the compliance burden on states by identifying opportunities for efficiency in the implementation of QA regulations and also by clarifying rule language to more clearly articulate minimum technical requirements. In addition to proposing a simplified structure for QA requirements described in the CFR, this action will address other common-sense revisions that have been suggested by states or EPA staff in the areas of data reporting and certification, annual monitoring network plans, network design, and the review and approval of new or revised ambient methods. The overall goal of this rule is the identification of opportunities for monitoring agency burden reduction while maintaining the current high quality of the resulting ambient data.
