Pesticide Product Registration Approval; Request for Comments, 64264-64265 [E6-18429]

Download as PDF 64264 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 211 / Wednesday, November 1, 2006 / Notices Process, published in the Federal Register on May 14, 2004 (69 FR 26819)(FRL–7357–9), explains that in conducting these programs, the Agency is tailoring its public participation process to be commensurate with the level of risk, extent of use, complexity of the issues, and degree of public concern associated with each pesticide. For chlorflurenol, a modified, 4-Phase process with one comment period and ample opportunity for public consultation seems appropriate in view of its limited use. However, if as a result of comments received during this comment period EPA finds that additional issues warranting further discussion are raised, the Agency may lengthen the process and include a second comment period, as needed. All comments should be submitted using the methods in ADDRESSES, and must be received by EPA on or before the closing date. Comments will become part of the Agency Docket for chlorflurenol. Comments received after the close of the comment period will be marked ‘‘late.’’ EPA is not required to consider these late comments. 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.’’ List of Subjects Environmental protection, Pesticides and pests. Dated: October 24, 2006. Peter Caulkins, Acting Director, Special Review and Reregistration Division, Office of Pesticide Programs. [FR Doc.

Specifically, the Agency has considered the nature of the chemical and its pattern of use, application methods and rates, and level and extent of potential exposure. Based on these reviews, the Agency was able to make basic health and safety determinations which show that use of ammonium nonanoate when used in accordance with widespread and commonly recognized practice, will not generally cause unreasonable adverse effects to the environment. III. Approved Application The company submitted an application to EPA to register the pesticide product Racer(TM) Concentrate (EPA Registration Number 79766–1) containing the chemical ammonium nonanoate at 40%. This product is used in nurseries, greenhouses, landscapes, and interior scapes for the suppression and control of weeds including: Grasses, vines, underbrush, annual/perennial plants, including moss, sapling, and tree suckers.
