CRE Commends New EPA Data Quality Assessment Factors
EPA's Science Policy Council recently published "A Summary of General Assessment Factors for Evaluating the Quality of Scientific and Technical Information." This important new document constitutes EPA's "effort to enhance the transparency about EPA's quality expectations for information that is voluntarily submitted to or generated by the Agency for various purposes." EPA's Assessment Factors document in particular clarifies the Data Quality standards that apply to EPA's use of models. CRE sent Dr. Paul Gilman, EPA Science Advisor, a letter complimenting the Agency "on an excellent piece of work which will have a significant impact on the timely and efficient implementation of the Data Quality Act."
