EPA requests public comment during the next 30 days on a petition (available in docket number EPA–HQ–OPP–2006– 0801) received from the Washington Toxics Coalition requesting that the Agency revoke all tolerances (maximum VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:21 Oct 12, 2006 Jkt 211001 legal residue limits) for the pesticide carbaryl. The petitioner claims that EPA cannot make a finding that there is a reasonable certainty of no harm from dietary residues of carbaryl and, therefore, EPA must revoke all tolerances established under Section 408 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), as amended by the Food Quality Protection Act (FQPA) of 1996. In addition, Washington Toxics is petitioning EPA to cancel all uses of carbaryl because Washington Toxics believes carbaryl cannot perform its intended function with out causing unreasonable adverse affects on the environment. Washington Toxics filed its petition pursuant to section 408(d) of FFDCA and in response to a Notice of Availability for the Carbaryl Interim Reregistration Eligibility Decision (IRED), published in the Federal Register on October 27, 2004.EPA’s assessment of human health and environmental risks of carbaryl, and finding on whether the tolerances for carbaryl comply with the safety standard in FFDCA Section 408, as amended by the FQPA, are contained in the Interim Reregistration Eligibility Decision document for carbaryl, which is available on EPA’s website at http:// www.regulations.gov, under docket number EPA–HQ–OPP–2003–0376 and on the pesticide web page at http:// www.epa.gov/pesticides/reregistration/ status.htm.

The purpose of this report is to provide an overarching framework for a complete and transparent assessment of exposure of environmental agents to children and resulting potential health risks within the U.S. EPA’s risk assessment paradigm. This Framework builds on the Agency’s past experience in evaluating risk to children. This Framework lays out a life stage-specific risk assessment process, points to existing published sources for more detailed information on life stage- ycherry on PROD1PC64 with NOTICES2 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:21 Oct 12, 2006 Jkt 211001 specific considerations, and includes Web links to specific online publications and relevant Agency science policy papers, guidelines and guidance. This Framework emphasizes the need for risk assessments to take into account potential exposures to environmental agents during preconception and all stages of development. This Framework is not intended to present an Agency guideline, but rather describes the overall structure of and the components considered important for children’s health risk assessment. The report describes an approach that includes problem formulation, analysis, and risk characterization steps, and also builds on Agency experience assessing risk to susceptible populations. • Problem Formulation—Focuses on the life stage-specific nature of the analysis to include scoping and screening level questions for hazard characterization, dose response and exposure assessment. • Analysis—Focuses on a life stage approach to evaluating hazard, doseresponse and exposure that is relevant to the scope of the problem identified in problem formulation. • Risk Characterization—Recognizes the need to consider life stage-specific risks and explicitly describes the uncertainties and variability in the database. It is important to note that within this framework, life stage-specific data gaps are not meant to convey an obligatory change in how uncertainty factor(s) associated with EPA’s health risk assessment methods should be judged in a given risk assessment, but rather to consider how life stage-specific data can better characterize the risk to susceptible groups within the population. The peer review panel report, the public comments, and the response to peer review and public comments will also be available at the same time. Dated: September 14, 2006.

II. What Action is the Agency Taking?

    EPA is printing a summary of a pesticide petition received under 
section 408 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), 21 
U.S.C. 346a, proposing the establishment or amendment of regulations in 
40 CFR part 180 for residues of pesticide chemicals in or on various 
food commodities. EPA has determined that this pesticide petition 
contains data or information regarding the elements set forth in FFDCA 
section 408(d)(2); however, EPA has not fully evaluated the sufficiency 
of the submitted data at this time or whether the data support granting 
of the pesticide petition. Additional data may be needed before EPA 
rules on this pesticide petition.
    Pursuant to 40 CFR 180.7(f), a summary of the petition included in 
this notice, prepared by the petitioner along with a description of the 
analytical method available for the detection and measurement of the 
pesticide chemical residues is available on EPA's Electronic Docket at 
http://www.regulations.gov/. To locate this information on the home 
page of EPA's Electronic Docket, select ``Quick Search'' and type the 
OPP docket ID number. Once the search has located the docket, clicking 
on the ``Docket ID'' will bring up a list of all documents in the 
docket for the pesticide including the petition summary.

New Tolerances

    PP 6G7089 EPA has received a pesticide petition from E. I. DuPont 
de Nemours and Company, DuPont Crop Protection, 1090 Elkton Road, 
Newark, Delaware 19711, proposing, pursuant to section 408(d) of the 
Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), 21 U.S.C. 346a(d), to 
amend 40 CFR part 180 to establish temporary tolerances for residues of 
chloantraniliprole (or DPX-E2Y45), 3-Bromo-N-[4-chloro-2-methyl-6-
[(methylamino)carbonyl]phenyl]-1-(3-chloro-2-pyridinyl)-1H-pyrazole-5-
carboxamide in or on the raw agricultural commodities: Apple at 0.3 
parts per million (ppm), celery at 7.0 ppm, cucumber at 0.09 ppm, head 
lettuce at 4.0 ppm, leaf lettuce at 7.5 ppm, pear at 0.3 ppm, pepper at 
0.5 ppm, spinach at 13.0 ppm, squash at 0.25 ppm, tomato at 0.3 ppm and 
watermelon at 0.2 ppm.
    The analytical procedure for analysis of chloantraniliprole in crop 
matrices is based on DuPont-13294, ``Method Validation for the Analysis 
of DPX-E2Y45 in Various Crop Matrices''. Chloantraniliprole is 
separated from co-extracts by reversed phase liquid chromatography (LC) 
and is detected by positive ion Atmospheric Pressure Chemical 
Ionization (APCI) mass spectrometry/mass spectrometry (MS/MS). The 
Limit of Quantitation (LOQ) is 0.010 mg/kg (ppm) and the Limit of 
Detection (LOD) is estimated to be 0.003 mg/kg (ppm).
