Download as PDF 61640 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 210 / Wednesday, October 31, 2007 / Notices rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES Environmental Health Fund, The Endocrine Disruption Exchange, and Northwest Coalition for Alternatives to Pesticides, as well as Attorneys General in six states, have petitioned the Agency to rescind this decision because they believe the use of the Red Cross symbol implies an endorsement of the product and/or its safety. In April 2007, the Minnesota Department of Agriculture prohibited Clorox products with the Red Cross charity labels from being distributed in Minnesota. This topic was discussed by the Pesticide Program Dialogue Committee (PPDC) in May 2007. The PPDC, established under the Federal Advisory Committee Act, consists of a diverse group of stakeholders and provides an opportunity for feedback to the pesticide program on various pesticide regulatory, policy and program implementation issues. The Agency explained at the May 2007 session the basis for the decision and that the use of the labeling approved for the Clorox products was neither false nor misleading. In order to expand the discussion of these issues to a wider audience, and to provide a focus for comments, the Agency developed a framework and guidelines for evaluating these types of labeling proposals. This draft guidance contains a high standard for approval. At a minimum, the label of a registered product must be effective in providing both use instructions and necessary safety information. III. Questions The Agency requests public input for a number of questions about the proposed evaluation process for label statements regarding third-party endorsements and cause marketing claims. 1. Are there other standards in FIFRA, besides the misbranding standards sec. 2(q) and the unreasonable adverse effects standards in secs. 3(c)(5) and 3(c)(7), that the Agency should use in deciding whether to approve third-party endorsements or cause marketing claims? 2. Under what circumstances could the use of a label statement containing a third-party endorsement or cause marketing claim affect a consumer’s assumptions about efficacy or safety? 3. EPA is seeking to ensure that its decisions whether to approve thirdparty endorsements or cause marketing claims have a sound basis. Please suggest how EPA might judge whether or not to request additional information to assess the impacts of a claim on consumers. 4. Please comment on what additional types of information EPA should request VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:45 Oct 30, 2007 Jkt 214001 to assess the impacts of a claim on consumers’ assumptions about efficacy or safety or about whether a claim detracts from other information presented on the label. 5. What, if any, restrictions should there be on the types of organizations that can participate in third-party endorsement or cause marketing claims on labels? 6. What, if any, restrictions should there be on the types of symbols that can be used on labels, in order to minimize the potential impact of consumers’ assumptions about efficacy or safety? 7. How should the Agency evaluate whether label statements containing a third-party endorsement or cause marketing claim detract from other information presented on the label? 8. How should the Agency maximize the effectiveness of disclaimer language when it is used to mitigate the potential for misunderstandings? 9. Are there other factors the Agency should consider when evaluating thirdparty endorsements or cause marketing claims on labels? 10. Please identify and explain why any particular population groups may be more vulnerable to adverse impacts or more likely to misunderstand label statements regarding third party endorsements or cause marketing claims. 11. What kind of public participation process, if any, is appropriate when the Agency evaluates a specific proposed label statement regarding a third party endorsement or a cause marketing claim? 12. Should the Agency consider imposing a time limitation with regard to approval and use of the third party endorsement label that is granted? 13.One proposal is that registrants could use a hang tag, wrap around, shrink wrap or other approach to display cause marketing language or a third-party endorsement. Please comment on this proposal. 14. Under what circumstances, if any, should the contents of an application to add a third-party endorsement or cause marketing claim to the label of a registered product be treated as Confidential Business Information (CBI)? What information should be required to support a claim of CBI? IV. Do PR Notices Contain Binding Requirements? The PR Notice discussed in this notice is intended to provide guidance to EPA personnel and decision makers and to pesticide registrants. While the requirements in the statutes and Agency regulations are binding on EPA and the PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 applicants, this PR Notice is not binding on either EPA or pesticide registrants, and EPA may depart from the guidance where circumstances warrant and without prior notice. Likewise, pesticide registrants may assert that the guidance is not appropriate generally or not applicable to a specific pesticide or situation.

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Section 5 of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) requires 
any person who intends to manufacture (defined by statute to include 
import) a new chemical (i.e., a chemical not on the TSCA Inventory) to 
notify EPA and comply with the statutory provisions pertaining to the 
manufacture of new chemicals. Under sections 5(d)(2) and 5(d)(3) of 
TSCA, EPA is required to publish a notice of receipt of a 
premanufacture notice (PMN) or an application for a test marketing 
exemption (TME), and to publish periodic status reports on the 
chemicals under review and the receipt of notices of commencement to 
manufacture those chemicals. This status report, which covers the 
period from September 10, 2007 to October 5, 2007, consists of the PMNs 
and TMEs, both pending or expired, and the notices of commencement to 
manufacture a new chemical that the Agency has received under TSCA 
section 5 during this time period.

DATES: Comments identified by the specific PMN number or TME number, 
must be received on or before November 30, 2007.

marked will not be disclosed except in accordance with procedures set 
forth in 40 CFR part 2.
    2. Tips for preparing your comments. When submitting comments,

information (subject heading, Federal Register date and page number).
    ii. Follow directions - The agency may ask you to respond to 
specific questions or organize comments by referencing a Code of 
Federal Regulations (CFR) part or section number.
    iii. Explain why you agree or disagree; suggest alternatives and 
substitute language for your requested changes.
    iv. Describe any assumptions and provide any technical information 
and/or data that you used.
    v. If you estimate potential costs or burdens, explain how you 
arrived at the estimate.
    vi. Provide specific examples to illustrate your concerns, and 
suggested alternatives.
    vii. Explain your views as clearly as possible, avoiding the use of 
profanity or personal threats.
    viii. Make sure to submit your comments by the comment period 
deadline identified.
