AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice announces the availability of EPA’s preliminary human health and ecological risk assessments and related documents for permethrin, a synthetic pyrethroid insecticide, and opens a public comment period on these documents. The public is encouraged to provide information to refine assessed risks, and suggest risk management ideas or proposals to address the risks identified. At this time, EPA is intending to develop a Reregistration Eligibility Decision (RED) for permethrin through a modified 4–phase public participation process that the Agency uses to involve the public in developing pesticide reregistration and tolerance assessment decisions. For permethrin, a modified 4–Phase process with one public comment period and ample opportunity for public consultation seems appropriate in view of the number and level of risk concerns identified in the preliminary risk assessment. However, if as a result of VerDate Aug<18>2005 16:33 Aug 30, 2005 Jkt 205001 comments received during this comment period EPA finds that additional issues warranting further discussion are raised, the Agency may consider an additional comment period, as needed. Through this program, EPA is ensuring that all pesticides meet current health and safety standards. This notice is phase–3 of the 4–phase process. DATES: Comments, identified by docket identification (ID) number OPP–2004– 0385 must be received on or before October 31, 2005. ADDRESSES: Comments may be submitted electronically, by mail, or through hand delivery/courier. Follow the detailed instructions as provided in Unit I. of the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION.
