DEQ and our partners the Oregon Health Authority are conducting a rulemaking to create new rules to identify and evaluate stricter standards for certain high-hazard air toxics.
As part of this process, a Cleaner Air Oregon Hazard Index Technical Advisory Committee will recommend a list of chemicals for future consideration by the Environmental Quality Commission for use within Oregon’s proposed Cleaner Air Oregon program.
Technical Advisory Committee
DEQ appointed volunteers with the technical background necessary to address requirements of Senate Bill 1541 (SB 1541) enacted by the 2018 Oregon Legislature. SB 1541 states: “…the [Environmental Quality] commission shall establish and consider the recommendations of an advisory committee, composed, at a minimum, of persons with technical expertise in toxic air contaminant risk assessment.”
