Revisions to the Permit Appeals Process To Restore the Organization and Function of the Environmental Appeals Board

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is reversing recent changes to the organization and function of the Environmental Appeals Board (EAB) that altered the appeals process and procedures for Agency decisions that the EAB considers. In addition, the Administrator reaffirms that the Board is intended to function as an impartial body that is independent of all EPA components, except the immediate Office of the Administrator, and reaffirms the EAB's ability to carry out the Administrator's delegated authority to adjudicate disputes and issue final Agency decisions.
