Concerning the multi-generation reproduction study, the effects on reproduction are considered to be specific effect caused by aromatase inhibition. The aromatase enzyme promotes normal sexual behavior in rats and mice, but not in guinea pigs or primates, including humans. A NOEL of 35 mg/kg/day for reproductive effects relevant to humans was established based on the NOEL from the multigeneration reproduction study in guinea pigs. In addition, a NOEL of 13 mg/kg/ day for developmental effects was established based upon the NOEL from the teratology study in rats. Therefore, it is concluded that an additional uncertainty factor is not needed and that the RfD at 0.065 mg/kg/day is appropriate for assessing risk to infants and children. F. International Tolerances There is no Codex or national maximum residue level established for fenarimol on filbert.

Once in the system, select ‘‘search,’’ then key in the appropriate docket ID number. II. Background Under FIFRA section 18, EPA can authorize the use of a pesticide when emergency conditions exist. Authorizations (commonly called emergency exemptions) are granted to State and Federal agencies and are of four types: 1. A ‘‘specific exemption’’ authorizes use of a pesticide against specific pests on a limited acreage in a particular State. Most emergency exemptions are specific exemptions. 2. ‘‘Quarantine’’ and ‘‘public health’’ exemptions are a particular form of specific exemption issued for quarantine or public health purposes. These are rarely requested. 3. A ‘‘crisis exemption’’ is initiated by a State or Federal agency (and is confirmed by EPA) when there is insufficient time to request and obtain EPA permission for use of a pesticide in an emergency. EPA may deny an emergency exemption: If the State or Federal agency cannot demonstrate that an emergency exists, if the use poses unacceptable risks to the environment, or if EPA cannot reach a conclusion that the proposed pesticide use is likely to result in ‘‘a reasonable certainty of no harm’’ to human health, including exposure of residues of the pesticide to infants and children. If the emergency use of the pesticide on a food or feed commodity would result in pesticide chemical residues, EPA establishes a time-limited tolerance meeting the ‘‘reasonable certainty of no harm standard’’ of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA). In this document: EPA identifies the State or Federal agency granted the exemption or denial, the type of exemption, the pesticide authorized and the pests, the crop or use for which authorized, number of acres (if applicable), and the duration of the exemption. EPA also gives the Federal Register citation for the time-limited tolerance, if any.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: [FR Doc. 05–17201 Filed 8–30–05; 8:45 am] AGENCY: Research and Development’s National Center for Environmental Assessment (NCEA) is reviewing and, as appropriate, revising the EPA document, Air Quality Criteria for Ozone and Related Photochemical Oxidants, EPA–600/AP–93/004aF–cF, published in 1996. Today’s Federal Register notice announces the availability of a second external review draft of the revised ozone air quality criteria document (AQCD). DATES: The period for submission of comments on the second external review draft of the revised ozone AQCD begins August 31, 2005, and ends November 30, 2005. ADDRESSES: The second external review draft of the revised ozone AQCD will be available on or about August 31, 2005. Internet users will be able to download a copy of this document from the NCEA home page. The URL is http:// www.epa.gov/ncea/. A limited number of CD–ROM or paper copies will be available. Contact Ms. Diane Ray by phone (919–541–3637), fax (919–541– 1818), or email (ray.diane@epa.gov) to request either of these. Please provide the draft document’s title, Air Quality Criteria for Ozone and Related Photochemical Oxidants (Second External Review Draft), Volumes I, II, and III, EPA 600/R–05/004aB, bB, and cB, as well as your name and address, to facilitate processing of your request. Public comments on the second external review draft of the revised ozone AQCD may be submitted electronically, by mail, by facsimile, or by hand delivery/ courier. Please follow the detailed instructions as provided in the section of this notice entitled SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION. Section 108 (a) of the Clean Air Act directs the EPA Administrator to identify certain pollutants which ‘‘may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health and welfare’’ and to issue air quality criteria for them. These air quality criteria are to ‘‘accurately reflect the latest scientific knowledge useful in indicating the kind and extent of all identifiable effects on public health or welfare which may be expected from the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00064 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 presence of [a] pollutant in the ambient air * * *.’’ Under section 109 of the Act, EPA is then to establish National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for each pollutant for which EPA has issued criteria. Section 109 (d) of the Act subsequently requires periodic review and, if appropriate, revision of existing air quality criteria to reflect advances in scientific knowledge on the effects of the pollutant on public health and welfare. EPA is also to revise the NAAQS, if appropriate, based on the revised criteria. Ozone is one of six ‘‘criteria’’ pollutants for which EPA has established air quality criteria and NAAQS. On September 26, 2000 (65 FR 57810), EPA formally initiated its current review of the criteria and NAAQS for ozone, requesting the submission of recent scientific information on specified topics. Preliminary outlines for the proposed chapters were presented in the draft Project Work Plan that was released for public comment (66 FR 67524, December 31, 2001) and for review by the Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee (CASAC) of EPA’s Science Advisory Board (68 FR 3527, January 24, 2003). Later in 2003, a series of workshops were convened to discuss draft sections and chapters for revising the existing Ozone AQCD (68 FR 17365, April 9, 2003, and 68 FR 60369, October 22, 2003). In January 2005, EPA announced the availability of the first external review draft of the Air Quality Criteria for Ozone and Related Photochemical Oxidants for review and comment (70 FR 4850, January 31, 2005). Following the close of the public comment period, EPA presented the first external review draft of the ozone AQCD to the CASAC Ozone Review Panel on May 4–5, 2005. The public comments received were also made available to the CASAC. EPA has carefully considered the public comments and comments from the CASAC Review Panel in preparing the second external review draft announced in today’s notice. After the end of the comment period on the Air Quality Criteria for Ozone and Related Photochemical Oxidants (Second External Review Draft), EPA will present the draft at a public meeting for review by the Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee (CASAC). Public comments received will be provided to the CASAC review panel. There will be a Federal Register notice to inform the public of the exact date and time of that CASAC meeting.

II. Background

    Under FIFRA section 18, EPA can authorize the use of a pesticide 
when emergency conditions exist. Authorizations (commonly called 
emergency exemptions) are granted to State and Federal agencies and are 
of four types:
    1. A ``specific exemption'' authorizes use of a pesticide against 
specific pests on a limited acreage in a particular State. Most 
emergency exemptions are specific exemptions.
    2. ``Quarantine'' and ``public health'' exemptions are a particular 
form of specific exemption issued for quarantine or public health 
purposes. These are rarely requested.
    3. A ``crisis exemption'' is initiated by a State or Federal agency 
(and is confirmed by EPA) when there is insufficient time to request 
and obtain EPA permission for use of a pesticide in an emergency.
    EPA may deny an emergency exemption: If the State or Federal agency 
cannot demonstrate that an emergency exists, if the use poses 
unacceptable risks to the environment, or if EPA cannot reach a 
conclusion that the proposed pesticide use is likely to result in ``a 
reasonable certainty of no harm'' to human health, including exposure 
of residues of the pesticide to infants and children.
    If the emergency use of the pesticide on a food or feed commodity 
would result in pesticide chemical residues, EPA establishes a time-
limited tolerance meeting the ``reasonable certainty of no harm 
standard'' of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA).
    In this document: EPA identifies the State or Federal agency 
granted the exemption or denial, the type of exemption, the pesticide 
authorized and the pests, the crop or use for which authorized, number 
of acres (if applicable), and the duration of the exemption. EPA also 
gives the Federal Register citation for the time-limited tolerance, if 
any.
