Make sure to submit your comments by the comment period deadline identified. II. Background rmajette on PROD1PC64 with NOTICES A. What Action is the Agency Taking? EPA is releasing for public comment its human health and environmental fate and effects risk assessments and related documents for tributyltin oxide, tributyltin benzoate, and tributyltin maleate, and soliciting public comment on risk management ideas or proposals. These three pesticide active ingredients are registered for a wide variety of uses, including antifoulants in specific, limited applications, and to control microbial growth in water cooling towers, construction materials, coatings, textiles, and animal housing facilities and hatchery applications. EPA developed the risk assessments and risk characterization for tributyltin oxide, tributyltin benzoate, and tributyltin maleate through a modified version of its public process for making pesticide reregistration eligibility and tolerance reassessment decisions. Through these programs, EPA is ensuring that pesticides meet current standards under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) and the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), as amended by the Food Quality Protection Act of 1996 (FQPA). The three tributyltin (TBT) compounds are formulated for application both in manufacturing processes and as end-use products applied directly by consumers. TBT oxide is registered for use in sites including antifoulant-impregnated rubber shaped for sonar domes, antifoulant components of oceanographic instruments, wood preservatives, construction materials including drywall, sterilants for nonfood processing equipment used in materials manufacture, hard surface disinfectants for hatchery and poultry/ swine farm premises, and textiles. TBT benzoate is registered for use in sites including construction materials such as spackling compound and in adhesives for non-food contact surfaces. TBT VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:36 Apr 01, 2008 Jkt 214001 maleate is registered for use as a materials preservative in sites including foam, textiles, carpet backing, and adhesives. EPA is providing an opportunity, through this notice, for interested parties to provide comments and input on the Agency’s risk assessments for tributyltin oxide, tributyltin benzoate, and tributyltin maleate. Such comments and input could address, for example, the availability of additional data to further refine the risk assessments, including information on residues of TBT in livestock and eggs from treated facilities, dermal and inhalation unit exposure values, leaching from treated wood, immunotoxicity, bioaccumulation, the availability of cost-effective alternatives to TBT, and unique benefits for the use of TBT could address the Agency’s risk assessment methodologies and assumptions as applied to this specific pesticide. Through this notice, EPA also is providing an opportunity for interested parties to provide risk management proposals or otherwise comment on risk management for tributyltin oxide, tributyltin benzoate, and tributyltin maleate. Risks of concern associated with the use of these active ingredients are: Those associated with immunotoxicity, endocrine disruption, and bioaccumulation; application of wood preservative formulations; wearing treated clothing; using a treated mattress cover; worker application and post-application tasks for TBT treatments of agricultural premises; reentry into treated agricultural premises; liquid pouring for manufacture of construction materials, and oilfield uses. In targeting these risks of concern, the Agency solicits information on effective and practical risk reduction measures. EPA seeks to achieve environmental justice, the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people, regardless of race, color, national origin, or income, in the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies. To help address potential environmental justice issues, the Agency seeks information on any groups or segments of the population who, as a result of their location, cultural practices, or other factors, may have atypical, unusually high exposure to tributyltin oxide, tributyltin benzoate, and tributyltin maleate, compared to the general population. EPA is applying the principles of public participation to all pesticides undergoing reregistration and tolerance reassessment. The Agency’s Pesticide Tolerance Reassessment and PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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, the Agency is tailoring its public participation process to be commensurate with the level of risk, extent of use, complexity of the issues, and degree of public concern associated with each pesticide. For tributyltin oxide, tributyltin benzoate, and tributyltin maleate, a modified, 4-Phase process with one comment period for public consultation seems appropriate in view of its limited use. However, if as a result of comments received during this comment period EPA finds that additional issues warranting further discussion are raised, the Agency may lengthen the process and include a second comment period, as needed. All comments should be submitted using the methods in ADDRESSES, and must be received by EPA on or before the closing date. Comments will become part of the Agency Docket for tributyltin oxide, tributyltin benzoate, and tributyltin maleate. Comments received after the close of the comment period will be marked ‘‘late.’’ EPA is not required to consider these late comments. 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 enduse products and either reregistering products or taking other ‘‘appropriate regulatory action.’’ List of Subjects Environmental protection, Pesticides and pests, antimicrobials. Dated: March 26, 2008. Frank Sanders, Director, Antimicrobials Division, Office of Pesticide Programs. [FR Doc.
