The Federal Advisory Committee meeting is for the purpose of negotiating the contents of a proposed regulation setting federal standards and practices for conducting all appropriate inquiry. Under the Small Business Liability Relief and Brownfields Revitalization Act, EPA is required to develop standards and practices for carrying out all appropriate inquiry. The meeting will commence with a presentation on current public and privately-developed practices for conducting environmental site assessments. After the presentation, the Committee will begin substantive deliberations on the content of the proposed rule. Discussions and deliberations will center on the criteria established by Congress in the Small Business Liability Relief and Brownfields Revitalization Act and that are to be included in the proposed rulemaking.

All meetings of the Negotiated Rulemaking Committee are open to the public. There is no requirement for advance registration for members of the public who wish to attend and observe the meeting. Opportunity for the general public to address the Committee will be provided at the end of the Committee meeting agenda on each of the two days.
