Background yshivers on PROD1PC62 with NOTICES 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 pesticide, MCPP-p under section 4(g)(2)(A) of FIFRA. MCPP-p is a chlorophenoxy herbicide frequently coformulated with other chlorophenoxy herbicides. Products containing MCPP-p are frequently formulated into weedand-feed and spot-treatment products used to manage broadleaf weeds in residential lawns, sod farms, golf courses, and non-cultivated agricultural land. EPA has determined that the data base to support reregistration is substantially complete and that products containing MCPP-p are eligible VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:33 Oct 23, 2007 Jkt 214001 for reregistration, provided that the mitigation measures are adopted in the manner described in the RED, including, but not limited to, use rate reductions and labeling amendments. 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 MCPP-p. 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 its uses, risks, and other factors, MCPP-p 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 MCPP-p. 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. Through consultations with stakeholders, all issues related to this pesticide were resolved through the various mitigation measures identified in the RED. Therefore, the Agency is issuing the MCPP-p 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.
