In EPA’s July 2006 Roadmap for Mercury,
EPA committed to working with other federal agencies to initiate a process
with technical experts and interested parties to assess options for managing
domestic elemental, commodity-grade mercury. In conjunction with several
other federal partners, EPA’s
Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics created a commodity-grade mercury
stakeholder panel, which established and assessed options for managing non-federal
supplies of mercury. The stakeholder participants provided individual advice
on the charge questions, not collective advice. The charge to the panel participants
was to consider:
• How should the various non-federal stocks of mercury be managed
both in the short-term and the long-term?
• How do current and future supply and demand affect this determination
for each of the various stocks?
The panel met four times between May and September 2007. The meetings were
open to the public, and included opportunities for public comment. The stakeholder panel process has now been completed.
