How was the EJ Technical Guidance Developed?

The EJ Technical Guidance was developed by a team of economists, risk assessors and other analysts that was led by the EPA's Office of Policy, Office of Environmental Justice, and Office of Research and Development. Based on currently available, scientifically-appropriate risk assessment and regulatory analysis methods, it underwent external peer-review by a special panel of EPA's Science Advisory Board. Information on the external peer review are available through the SAB website. In addition, a 120 day public comment period was conducted prior to the SAB review.
