Background The Office of Pesticide Programs is entrusted with the responsibility to help ensure the safety of the American food supply, the education and protection from unreasonable risk of those who apply or are exposed to pesticides occupationally or through use of products, and general protection of the environment and special ecosystems from potential risks posed by pesticides. The Charter for EPA’s Pesticide Program Dialogue Committee (PPDC) was established under the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), Public Law 92–463, in September 1995, and has been renewed every 2 years since that time. PPDC’s Charter was renewed November 5, 2005, for another 2–year period. The purpose of PPDC is to provide advice and recommendations to the EPA Administrator on issues associated with pesticide regulatory development and reform initiatives, evolving public policy and program implementation issues, and science issues associated with evaluating and reducing risks from use of pesticides. It is determined that PPDC is in the public interest in connection with the performance of duties imposed on the Agency by law. The following sectors are represented on the PPDC: Pesticide industry and trade associations; environmental/public interest, consumer, and animal rights groups; farm worker organizations; pesticide user, grower, and commodity groups; Federal and State/local/Tribal governments; the general public; academia; and public health organizations. Copies of the PPDC Charter are filed with appropriate committees of Congress and the Library of Congress and are available upon request. III. How Can I Request to Participate in this Meeting?

Analysis of Agreement Containing Consent Order To Aid Public Comment The Federal Trade Commission (‘‘Commission’’) has accepted, subject to final approval, an Agreement Containing Consent Order (‘‘Consent Agreement’’) from Actavis Group hf. (‘‘Actavis’’), which is designed to remedy the anticompetitive effects of the acquisition of Abrika Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (‘‘Abrika’’) by Actavis. Under the terms of the proposed Consent Agreement, the company would be required to assign and divest the Abrika rights and assets necessary to manufacture and market generic isradipine capsules to Cobalt Laboratories, Inc. (‘‘Cobalt’’), the U.S. subsidiary of Arrow Group. The proposed Consent Agreement has been placed on the public record for thirty (30) days for receipt of comments by interested persons. Comments received during this period will become part of the public record. After thirty (30) days, the Commission will again review the proposed Consent Agreement and the comments received, and will decide whether it should withdraw from the proposed Consent Agreement, modify it, or make final the Decision and Order (‘‘Order’’). Pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger executed on November 20, 2006, Actavis proposes to acquire all of the voting securities of Abrika for $235 million. The Commission’s Complaint alleges that the proposed acquisition, if consummated, would violate Section 7 of the Clayton Act, as amended, 15 U.S.C. 18, and Section 5 of the Federal Trade Commission Act, as amended, 15 U.S.C. 45, by lessening competition in the U.S. markets for the manufacture and sale of generic isradipine capsules. The proposed Consent Agreement will remedy the alleged violation by replacing the lost competition that would result from the acquisition in this market. Actavis is a leading developer, manufacturer, marketer, and distributor of generic pharmaceutical drugs. Headquartered in Iceland, Actavis sells generic pharmaceuticals in over 30 countries and has manufacturing facilities in Europe, the United States, E:\FR\FM\20APN1.SGM 20APN1
