CRE Comments on EPA's Proposed Data Quality Guidelines for Third-Party Submissions
EPA's Draft Assessment Factors for Evaluating the Quality of Information from External Sources explains how EPA will apply Data Quality Act standards to information submitted to EPA by parties outside the Agency. CRE's comments on this very important document identified several shortcomings. One of CRE's major concerns is EPA's proposed use of a long list of EPA documents to determine whether third-party submissions comply with the Data Quality Act. CRE's comments explain that many documents on this list do not comply with the Data Quality Act. Consequently, they should not be used as a yardstick for Data Quality Act compliance.
