Background A. What Action is the Agency Taking? Under section 4 of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), EPA is reevaluating existing pesticides to ensure that they meet current scientific and regulatory standards. EPA has completed a RED for the allethrins series of pesticides under section 4(g)(2)(A) of FIFRA. The allethrins are synthetic pyrethroids used as insecticides on both indoor (residential and commercial) and outdoor (residential, commercial, and recreational) use sites. EPA has determined that the database to support reregistration is substantially complete and that products containing the allethrins are eligible for reregistration, provided the risks are mitigated in the manner described in the RED. Upon submission of any required product specific data under section 4(g)(2)(B) of FIFRA and any necessary changes to the registration and labeling (either to address concerns identified in the RED or as a result of product specific data), EPA will make a final reregistration decision under section 4(g)(2)(C) of FIFRA for products containing the allethrins. Although the allethrins RED was signed on June 30, 2007, certain components of the document, which did not affect the final regulatory decision, were undergoing final editing at that time. These components, including the table of contents and the summary of labeling changes, have been added to the allethrins RED document. None of these additions or changes alter the conclusions documented in the June 30, 2007 allethrins RED. EPA is applying the principles of public participation to all pesticides undergoing reregistration and tolerance reassessment. The Agency’s Pesticide Tolerance Reassessment and Reregistration; Public Participation Process, published in the Federal Register on May 14, 2004, (69 FR 26819) (FRL–7357–9) explains that in conducting these programs, EPA is tailoring its public participation process to be commensurate with the level of risk, extent of use, complexity of issues, and degree of public concern associated with each pesticide. Due to their uses, VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:57 Sep 25, 2007 Jkt 211001 risk, and other factors, the allethrins were reviewed through the modified 4– Phase public participation process. Through this process, EPA worked extensively with stakeholders and the public to reach the regulatory decisions for the allethrins. 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. Few comments were received during the earlier comment periods for this reregistration case, and the issues related to this pesticide were resolved through consultations with stakeholders. The Agency therefore is issuing the allethrins RED without a comment period. 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 end-use products and either reregistering products or taking other ‘‘appropriate regulatory action.’’ List of Subjects Environmental protection, Pesticides and pests. Dated: August 21, 2007. Margaret J. Rice, Acting Director, Special Review and Reregistration Division, Office of Pesticide Programs. [FR Doc.
