EPA’s Proposed Rule Strengthening Transparency in Regulatory Science
On April 30th, 2018, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed a rule to establish the transparency of EPA regulatory science. The rule also requires the EPA to identify all regulatory science it relied on and conduct an independent peer review on all pivotal regulatory science use to justify regulatory decisions. This proposed rule could significantly impact rulemakings under the Clean Air Act (CAA) which requires the EPA to rely on the best available science for regulatory actions.
