Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 250 / Friday, December 30, 2005 / Notices wwhite on PROD1PC61 with NOTICES risk, extent of use, complexity of issues, and degree of public concern associated with each pesticide. Due to its limited use pattern and low risks of concern, ferbam was reviewed through the modified 4-Phase process. Through this process, EPA worked extensively with stakeholders and the public to reach the regulatory decisions for ferbam. The reregistration program is being conducted under Congressionally mandated time frames, and EPA recognizes the need both to make timely decisions and to involve the public. The Agency is issuing the ferbam RED for public comment. This comment period is intended to provide an additional opportunity for public input and a mechanism for initiating any necessary amendments to the RED. For ecological and worker protection, the Agency is prohibiting aerial applications, requiring decreased rates and added personal protective equipment for some uses. Comments on the feasibility of these mitigation measures and/or benefits of ferbam use are requested. All comments should be submitted using the methods in Unit I. of the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION, and must be received by EPA on or before the closing date. These comments will become part of the Agency Docket for ferbam. Comments received after the close of the comment period will be marked ‘‘late.’’ EPA is not required to consider these late comments. The Agency will carefully consider all comments received by the closing date and will provide a Response to Comments Memorandum in the Docket and electronic EDOCKET. If any comment significantly affects the document, EPA also will publish an amendment to the RED in the Federal Register. In the absence of substantive comments requiring changes, the ferbam RED will be implemented as it is now presented. B. What is the Agency’s Authority for Taking this Action? Section 4(g)(2) of FIFRA as amended directs that, after submission of all data concerning a pesticide active ingredient, ‘‘the Administrator shall determine whether pesticides containing such active ingredient are eligible for reregistration,’’ before calling in product-specific data on individual enduse products and either reregistering products or taking other ‘‘appropriate regulatory action.’’ Section 408(q) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), 21 U.S.C. 346a(q), requires EPA to review tolerances and exemptions for pesticide residues in effect as of August 2, 1996, to determine whether the tolerance or VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:16 Dec 29, 2005 Jkt 208001 exemption meets the requirements of section 408(b)(2) or (c)(2) of FFDCA.
