II. Authority EPA is conducting its registration review of the chemicals listed in the Table in Unit III pursuant to section 3(g) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) and the Procedural Regulations for Registration Review at 40 CFR part 155, subpart C. Section 3(g) of FIFRA provides, among other things, that the registrations of pesticides are to be reviewed every 15 years. Under FIFRA, a pesticide product may be registered or remain registered only if it meets the statutory standard for registration given in FIFRA section 3(c)(5) (7 U.S.C. 136a(c)(5)). When used in accordance with widespread and commonly recognized practice, the pesticide product must perform its intended function without unreasonable adverse effects on the environment; that is, without any unreasonable risk to man or the environment, or a human dietary risk from residues that result from the use of a pesticide in or on food. III.

Pursuant to 40 CFR 155.53(c), EPA is providing an opportunity, through this notice of availability, for interested parties to provide comments and input concerning the Agency’s draft human health and/or ecological risk assessments for the pesticides listed in the Table in Unit III. Since an ecological risk assessment for the pyrethroids, including etofenprox, gammacyhalothrin, lambda-cyhalothrin, permethrin, pyrethrins, and taufluvalinate, was previously published for comment in the Federal Register in November 2016, this Notice is announcing the availability of the human health risk assessments for these chemicals. For imidacloprid, a preliminary pollinator only risk assessment was completed in January 2016 and an aquatic species only ecological risk assessment was completed in January 2017. Both of these were previously published for comment in the Federal Register and thus this Notice is announcing the availability of the human health assessment for imidacloprid. The Agency will consider all comments received during the public comment period and make changes, as appropriate, to a draft human health and/or ecological risk assessment. EPA may then issue a revised risk assessment, explain any changes to the draft risk assessment, and respond to comments. In the Federal Register notice announcing the availability of the revised risk assessment, if the revised risk assessment indicates risks of concern, the Agency may provide a comment period for the public to submit suggestions for mitigating the risk identified in the revised risk assessment before developing a proposed registration review decision for the pesticides identified above. 1. Information submission requirements. Anyone may submit data or information in response to this document. To be considered during a pesticide’s registration review, the submitted data or information must meet the following requirements: • To ensure that EPA will consider data or information submitted, interested persons must submit the data or information during the comment period. The Agency may, at its discretion, consider data or information submitted at a later date.

implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and 
policies. To help address potential environmental justice issues, the 
Agency seeks information on any groups or segments of the population 
who, as a result of their location, cultural practices, or other 
factors, may have atypical or disproportionately high and adverse human 
health impacts or environmental effects from exposure to the pesticides 
discussed in this document, compared to the general population.

II. Authority

    EPA is conducting its registration review of the chemicals listed 
in the Table in Unit III pursuant to section 3(g) of the Federal 
Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) and the Procedural 
Regulations for Registration Review at 40 CFR part 155, subpart C. 
Section 3(g) of FIFRA provides, among other things, that the 
registrations of pesticides are to be reviewed every 15 years. Under 
FIFRA, a pesticide product may be registered or remain registered only 
if it meets the statutory standard for registration given in FIFRA 
section 3(c)(5) (7 U.S.C. 136a(c)(5)). When used in accordance with 
widespread and commonly recognized practice, the pesticide product must 
perform its intended function without unreasonable adverse effects on 
the environment; that is, without any unreasonable risk to man or the 
environment, or a human dietary risk from residues that result from the 
use of a pesticide in or on food.

III. Registration Reviews

    As directed by FIFRA section 3(g), EPA is reviewing the pesticide 
registration for the pesticides listed in the Table to ensure that it 
continues to satisfy the FIFRA standard for registration--that is, that 
these chemicals can still be used without unreasonable adverse effects 
on human health or the environment.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to 40 CFR 155.53(c), EPA is providing an opportunity, 
through this notice of availability, for interested parties to provide 
comments and input concerning the Agency's draft human health and/or 
ecological risk assessments for the pesticides listed in the Table in 
Unit III. Since an ecological risk assessment for the pyrethroids, 
including etofenprox, gamma-cyhalothrin, lambda-cyhalothrin, 
permethrin, pyrethrins, and tau-fluvalinate, was previously published 
for comment in the Federal Register in November 2016, this Notice is 
announcing the availability of the human health risk assessments for 
these chemicals. For imidacloprid, a preliminary pollinator only risk 
assessment was completed in January 2016 and an aquatic species only 
ecological risk assessment was completed in January 2017. Both of these 
were previously published for comment in the Federal Register and thus 
this Notice is announcing the availability of the human health 
assessment for imidacloprid. The Agency will consider all comments 
received during the public comment period and make changes, as 
appropriate, to a draft human health and/or ecological risk assessment. 
EPA may then issue a revised risk assessment, explain any changes to 
the draft risk assessment, and respond to comments. In the Federal 
Register notice announcing the availability of the revised risk 
assessment, if the revised risk assessment indicates risks of concern, 
the Agency may provide a comment period for the public to submit 
suggestions for mitigating the risk identified in the revised risk 
assessment before developing a proposed registration review decision 
for the pesticides identified above.
    1. Information submission requirements. Anyone may submit data or 
information in response to this document. To be considered during a 
pesticide's registration review, the submitted data or information must 
meet the following requirements:
     To ensure that EPA will consider data or information 
submitted, interested persons must submit the data or information 
during the comment period. The Agency may, at its discretion, consider 
data or information submitted at a later date.
     The data or information submitted must be presented in a 
legible and useable form. For example, an English translation must 
accompany any material that is not in English and a written transcript 
must accompany any information submitted as an audiographic or 
videographic record. Written material may be submitted in paper or 
electronic form.
     Submitters must clearly identify the source of any 
submitted data or information.
     Submitters may request the Agency to reconsider data or 
information that the Agency rejected in a previous review. However, 
submitters must explain why they believe the Agency should reconsider 
the data or information in the pesticide's registration review.
    As provided in 40 CFR 155.58, the registration review docket for 
each pesticide case will remain publicly accessible through the 
duration of the registration review process; that is, until all actions 
required in the final decision on the registration review case have 
been completed.

    Authority: 7 U.S.C. 136 et seq.
