You may also access the Procedural Regulations for Registration Review on the Agency’s website at http:// www.epa.gov/fedrgstr/EPA-PEST/2006/ August/Day-09/p12904.htm. Section 3(g) of FIFRA provides, among other things, that the registrations of pesticides are to be periodically reviewed. The goal is a review of a pesticide’s registration every 15 years. Under FIFRA section 3(a), a pesticide product may be registered or remain registered only if it meets the statutory standard for registration given in FIFRA section 3(c)(5). When used in accordance with widespread and commonly recognized practice, the pesticide product must perform its intended function without unreasonable adverse effects on the environment; that is, without any unreasonable risk to man or the environment, or a human dietary risk from residues that result from the use of a pesticide in or on food.

and issues that the Agency may consider during the course of 
registration reviews. Through this program, EPA is ensuring that each 
pesticide's registration is based on current scientific and other 
knowledge, including its effects on human health and the environment.

interest to a wide range of stakeholders including environmental, human 
health, farmworker, and agricultural advocates; the chemical industry; 
pesticide users; and members of the public interested in the sale, 
distribution, or use of pesticides. Since others also may be 
interested, the Agency has not attempted to describe all the specific 
entities that may be affected by this action. If you have any questions 
regarding the applicability of this action to a particular entity, 
consult the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.

 B. What Should I Consider as I Prepare My Comments for EPA?

    1. Submitting CBI. Do not submit this information to EPA through 
regulations.gov or e-mail. Clearly mark the part or all of the 
information that you claim to be CBI. For CBI information in a disk or 
CD-ROM that you mail to EPA, mark the outside of the disk or CD-ROM as 
CBI and then identify electronically within the disk or CD-ROM the 
specific information that is claimed as CBI. In addition to one 
complete version of the comment that includes information claimed as 
CBI, a copy of the comment that does not contain the information 
claimed as CBI must be submitted for inclusion in the public docket. 
Information so 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, 
remember to:
    i. Identify the document by docket ID number and other identifying 
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 your estimate in sufficient detail to allow for it to be 
reproduced.
    vi. Provide specific examples to illustrate your concerns and 
suggest 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.

II. Authority

    EPA is initiating its reviews of the pesticides identified in this 
document pursuant to section 3(g) of the Federal Insecticide, 
Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) and the Procedural Regulations 
for Registration Review published in the Federal Register of August 9, 
2006, and effective on October 10, 2006 (71 FR 45719) (FRL-8080-4). You 
may also access the Procedural Regulations for Registration Review on 
the Agency's website at http://www.epa.gov/fedrgstr/EPA-PEST/2006/
August/Day-09/p12904.htm. Section 3(g) of FIFRA provides, among other 
things, that the registrations of pesticides are to be periodically 
reviewed. The goal is a review of a pesticide's registration every 15 
years. Under FIFRA section 3(a), a pesticide product may be registered 
or remain registered only if it meets the statutory standard for 
registration given in FIFRA section 3(c)(5). When used in accordance 
with widespread and commonly recognized practice, the pesticide product 
must perform its intended function without unreasonable adverse effects 
on the environment; that is, without any unreasonable risk to man or 
the environment, or a human dietary risk from residues that result from 
the use of a pesticide in or on food.

III. Registration Reviews

 A. What Action is the Agency Taking?

    As directed by FIFRA section 3(g), EPA is periodically reviewing 
pesticide registrations to assure that they continue to satisfy the 
FIFRA standard for registration--that is, they can still be used 
without unreasonable adverse effects on human health or the 
environment. The implementing regulations establishing the procedures 
for registration review appear at 40 CFR part 155. A pesticide's 
registration review begins when the Agency establishes a docket for the 
pesticide's registration review case and opens the docket for public 
review and comment. At present, EPA is opening registration review 
dockets for the cases identified in the following table.

B. Docket Content

    1. Review dockets. The registration review dockets contain 
information that the Agency may consider in the course of the 
registration review. The Agency may include information from its files 
including, but not limited to, the following information:
    i. An overview of the registration review case status.
    ii. A list of current product registrations and registrants.
    iii. Federal Register notices regarding any pending registration 
actions.
    iv. Federal Register notices regarding current or pending 
tolerances.
    v. Risk assessments.
    vi. Bibliographies concerning current registrations.
    vii. Summaries of incident data.
    viii. Any other pertinent data or information.
     Each docket contains a document summarizing what the Agency 
currently knows about the pesticide case and a preliminary work plan 
for anticipated data and assessment needs. Additional documents provide 
more detailed information. During this public comment period, the 
Agency is asking that interested persons identify any additional 
information they believe the Agency should consider during the 
registration reviews of these pesticides. The Agency identifies in each 
docket the areas where public comment is specifically requested, though 
comment in any area is welcome.
    2. Other related information. More information on these cases, 
including the active ingredients for each case, may be located in the 
registration review schedule on the Agency's website at http://
www.epa.gov/oppsrrd1/registration_review/schedule.htm. Information on 
the Agency's registration review program and its implementing 
regulation may be seen at http://www.epa.gov/oppsrrd1/registration_
review.
     3. Information submission requirements. Anyone may submit data or 
information in response to this document. To be considered during a 
pesticide's registration review, the submitted data or information must 
meet the following requirements:
    i. To ensure that EPA will consider data or information submitted, 
interested persons must submit the data or information during the 
comment period. The Agency may, at its discretion, consider data or 
information submitted at a later date.
    ii. The data or information submitted must be presented in a 
legible and useable form. For example, an English translation must 
accompany any material that is not in English and a written transcript 
must accompany any information submitted as an audiographic or 
videographic record. Written material may be submitted in paper or 
electronic form.
    iii. Submitters must clearly identify the source of any submitted 
data or information.
    iv. Submitters may request the Agency to reconsider data or 
information that the Agency rejected in a previous review. However, 
submitters must explain why they believe the Agency should reconsider 
the data or information in the pesticide's registration review.
    v. As provided in 40 CFR 155.58, the registration review docket for 
each pesticide case will remain publicly accessible through the 
duration of the registration review process; that is, until

[[Page 16014]]

all actions required in the final decision on the registration review 
case have been completed.
