What Action is the Agency Taking? EPA is printing notice of the filing of pesticide petitions received under section 408 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), 21 U.S.C. 346a, proposing the establishment or modification of regulations in 40 CFR part 180 for residues of pesticide chemicals in or on various food commodities. EPA has determined that the pesticide petitions described in this notice contain data or information regarding the elements set forth in FFDCA section 408(d)(2); however, EPA has not fully evaluated the sufficiency of the submitted data at this time or whether the data support granting of the pesticide petitions. Additional data may be needed before EPA rules on these pesticide petitions. Pursuant to 40 CFR 180.7(f), a summary of each of the petitions included in this notice, prepared by the petitioner, is included in a docket EPA has created for each rulemaking. The docket for each of the petitions is available on-line at https:// www.regulations.gov. sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES New Tolerance 1. PP 7E7258. (EPA–HQ–OPP–2008– 0049). Interregional Research Project Number 4 (IR-4), 500 College Rd., East, Suite 201W, Princeton, NJ 08540, proposes to establish a tolerance for residues of the fungicide triflumizole, 1[1-((4-chloro-2-(trifluoromethyl) phenyl)imino)-2 propoxyethyl]-1Himidazole, and its metabolites containing the 4-chloro-2trifluoromethylaniline moiety in or on the food commodities leafy greens subgroup 4A, except spinach and cilantro at 35 parts per million (ppm); turnip, greens at 40 ppm; swiss chard at 18 ppm; pineapple at 4.0 ppm; papaya; sapote, black; canistel; sapote, mamey; mango; sapodilla; star apple at 2.5 ppm; and hop, dried cones at 50.0 ppm. The analytical method is suitable for analyzing crops for residues of triflumizole and its aniline containing metabolites at the proposed tolerance levels and has been independently validated. Residue levels of triflumizole are converted to FA-1-1 by acidic and alkaline reflux, followed by distillation. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:18 May 15, 2008 Jkt 214001 Residues are then extracted and subjected to SPE purification. Detection and quantitation are conducted by gas chromatograph equipped with nitrogen phosphorus detector, electron capture detector or mass spectrometry detection. The limit of quantitation of the method has been determined in the range of 0.01 ppm to 0.05 ppm for the combined residues of triflumizole and FA-1-1. The enforcement methodology has been submitted to the Food and Drug Administration for publication in the Pesticide Analytical Manual, Vol. II (PAM II).

Interregional Research Project No. 4 (IR-4), 500 College Road East, Suite 201W, Princeton, NJ 08540, proposes to establish a tolerance for residues of the fungicide (plant activator), acibenzolar S-methyl in or on the food commodity onion, bulb, subgroup 3-07A at 0.07 ppm. Syngenta Analytical Method AG-671A is a practical and valid method for the determination and confirmation of acibenzolar S-methyl (CGA245704) in raw agricultural commodities (RAC) and processing substrates from the tobacco, leafy (including brassica) and fruiting vegetable crop groups at a limit of quantitation (LOQ) of 0.02 ppm. Based on recoveries of dry bulb onion samples fortified at the lower limit of method validation, the limit of detection and LOQ were calculated as 0.013 and 0.040 ppm, respectively. The method involves extraction, solid phase cleanup of samples with analysis by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with ultraviolet (UV) detection or confirmatory liquid chromatography/ mass spectrometry (LC/MS). The validity is demonstrated by the acceptable accuracy and precision obtained on numerous procedural recovery samples (radiovalidation and field trial sample sets), and by the extractability and accountability obtained by the analysis of weathered radioactive substrates using Analytical Method AG-671A.

Interregional Research Project No. 4 (IR-4), 500 College Road East, Suite 201W, Princeton, NJ 08540, proposes to establish a tolerance for residues of the insecticide indoxacarb, (S)-methyl 7-chloro- 2,5-dihydro-2[[(methoxycarbonyl)[4(trifluoromethoxy)phenyl] amino]carbonyl] indeno[1,2e] [1,3,4]oxadiazine-4a(3H)-carboxylate, and its R-enantiomer [(R)-methyl 7chloro-2,5-dihydro-2- PO 00000 Frm 00040 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 28463 [[(methoxycarbonyl)[4(trifluoromethoxy) phenyl]amino]carbonyl]indeno [1,2-e] [1,3,4] oxadiazine-4a(3H)- carboxylate in a 75:25 mixture (DPX-MP062), respectively, in or on the food commodities Bushberry subgroup 1307B at 1.5 ppm; beet, garden, roots at 0.3 ppm; and beet, garden, tops at 6.0 ppm. The plant residue enforcement method detects and quantitates indoxacarb in various matrices including sweet corn, lettuce, tomato, broccoli, apple, grape, cottonseed, peanut, and soybean commodity samples by HPLC with UV detection. The limit of quantitation in the method allows monitoring of crops with indoxacarb residues at or above the levels proposed in these tolerances.

III. What Action is the Agency Taking?

    EPA is printing notice of the filing of pesticide petitions 
received under section 408 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act 
(FFDCA), 21 U.S.C. 346a, proposing the establishment or modification of 
regulations in 40 CFR part 180 for residues of pesticide chemicals in 
or on various food commodities. EPA has determined that the pesticide 
petitions described in this notice contain data or information 
regarding the elements set forth in FFDCA section 408(d)(2); however, 
EPA has not fully evaluated the sufficiency of the submitted data at 
this time or whether the data support granting of the pesticide 
petitions. Additional data may be needed before EPA rules on these 
pesticide petitions.
    Pursuant to 40 CFR 180.7(f), a summary of each of the petitions 
included in this notice, prepared by the petitioner, is included in a 
docket EPA has created for each rulemaking. The docket for each of the 
petitions is available on-line at https://www.regulations.gov.

New Tolerance

     1. PP 7E7258. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2008-0049). Interregional Research 
Project Number 4 (IR-4), 500 College Rd., East, Suite 201W, Princeton, 
NJ 08540, proposes to establish a tolerance for residues of the 
fungicide triflumizole, 1-[1-((4-chloro-2-(trifluoromethyl) 
phenyl)imino)-2 propoxyethyl]-1H-imidazole, and its metabolites 
containing the 4-chloro-2-trifluoromethylaniline moiety in or on the 
food commodities leafy greens subgroup 4A, except spinach and cilantro 
at 35 parts per million (ppm); turnip, greens at 40 ppm; swiss chard at 
18 ppm; pineapple at 4.0 ppm; papaya; sapote, black; canistel; sapote, 
mamey; mango; sapodilla; star apple at 2.5 ppm; and hop, dried cones at 
50.0 ppm. The analytical method is suitable for analyzing crops for 
residues of triflumizole and its aniline containing metabolites at the 
proposed tolerance levels and has been independently validated. Residue 
levels of triflumizole are converted to FA-1-1 by acidic and alkaline 
reflux, followed by distillation. Residues are then extracted and 
subjected to SPE purification. Detection and quantitation are conducted 
by gas chromatograph equipped with nitrogen phosphorus detector, 
electron capture detector or mass spectrometry detection. The limit of 
quantitation of the method has been determined in the range of 0.01 ppm 
to 0.05 ppm for the combined residues of triflumizole and FA-1-1. The 
enforcement methodology has been submitted to the Food and Drug 
Administration for publication in the Pesticide Analytical Manual, Vol. 
II (PAM II). Contact: Susan Stanton, (703) 305-5218, 
stanton.susan@epa.gov.
     2. PP 7E7337. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2008-0270). Interregional Research 
Project No. 4 (IR-4), 500 College Road East, Suite 201W, Princeton, NJ 
08540, proposes to establish a tolerance for residues of the fungicide 
(plant activator), acibenzolar S-methyl in or on the food commodity 
onion, bulb, subgroup 3-07A at 0.07 ppm. Syngenta Analytical Method AG-
671A is a practical and valid method for the determination and 
confirmation of acibenzolar S-methyl (CGA245704) in raw agricultural 
commodities (RAC) and processing substrates from the tobacco, leafy 
(including brassica) and fruiting vegetable crop groups at a limit of 
quantitation (LOQ) of 0.02 ppm. Based on recoveries of dry bulb onion 
samples fortified at the lower limit of method validation, the limit of 
detection and LOQ were calculated as 0.013 and 0.040 ppm, respectively. 
The method involves extraction, solid phase cleanup of samples with 
analysis by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with 
ultraviolet (UV) detection or confirmatory liquid chromatography/mass 
spectrometry (LC/MS). The validity is demonstrated by the acceptable 
accuracy and precision obtained on numerous procedural recovery samples 
(radiovalidation and field trial sample sets), and by the 
extractability and accountability obtained by the analysis of weathered 
radioactive substrates using Analytical Method AG-671A. Contact: Susan 
Stanton, (703) 305-5218, stanton.susan@epa.gov.
     3. PP 8E7324. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2008-0271). Interregional Research 
Project No. 4 (IR-4), 500 College Road East, Suite 201W, Princeton, NJ 
08540, proposes to establish a tolerance for residues of the 
insecticide indoxacarb, (S)-methyl 7-chloro- 2,5-dihydro-2-
[[(methoxycarbonyl)[4-(trifluoromethoxy)phenyl] amino]carbonyl] 
indeno[1,2e] [1,3,4]oxadiazine-4a(3H)-carboxylate, and its R-enantiomer 
[(R)-methyl 7-chloro-2,5-dihydro-2-[[(methoxycarbonyl)[4-
(trifluoromethoxy) phenyl]amino]carbonyl]indeno [1,2-e] [1,3,4] 
oxadiazine-4a(3H)- carboxylate in a 75:25 mixture (DPX-MP062), 
respectively, in or on the food commodities Bushberry subgroup 13-07B 
at 1.5 ppm; beet, garden, roots at 0.3 ppm; and beet, garden, tops at 
6.0 ppm. The plant residue enforcement method detects and quantitates 
indoxacarb in various matrices including sweet corn, lettuce, tomato, 
broccoli, apple, grape, cottonseed, peanut, and soybean commodity 
samples by HPLC with UV detection. The limit of quantitation in the 
method allows monitoring of crops with indoxacarb residues at or above 
the levels proposed in these tolerances. Contact: Susan Stanton, (703) 
305-5218, stanton.susan@epa.gov.
     4. PP 8E7314. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2008-0258). Interregional Research 
Project No. 4 (IR-4), 500 College Road East, Suite 201 W, Princeton, NJ 
08540, proposes to establish a tolerance for residues of the fungicide 
dimethomorph, (E,Z)4-[3-(4-chlorophenyl)-3-(3,4-dimethoxyphenyl)-1-oxo-
2-propenyl]-morpholine in or on the food commodities bean, lima at 0.6 
ppm; ginseng at 0.85 ppm; grape at 3.5 ppm; grape, raisin at 6.0 ppm; 
and turnip, greens at 20 ppm. A reliable method for the determination 
of dimethomorph residues in bean, lima; ginseng; grape; grape, raisin; 
and turnip, greens exists; this method is the FDA Multi-Residue Method, 
Protocol D, as published in the Pesticide Analytical Manual I. Contact:

Project No. 4 (IR-4), 500 College Road East, Suite 201 W, Princeton, NJ 
08540, proposes to establish a tolerance for the combined residues of 
the insecticide spiromesifen, 2-oxo-3-(2,4,6-trimethylphenyl)-1-
oxaspiro[4.4]non-3-en-4-yl 3, 3-dimethylbutanoate and its enol 
metabolite 4-hydroxy-3-(2,4,6-trimethylphenyl)-1-oxaspiro[4.4]non-3-en-

[[Page 28464]]

Research Triangle Park, NC 27709, proposes to establish a tolerance for 
residues of the herbicide iodosulfuron-methyl-sodium, methyl 4-iodo-2-
[3-(4-methoxy-6-methyl-1,3,5-triazin-2-yl)-ureidosulfonyl]benzoate, 
sodium salt in or on the food commodities wheat, grain at 0.02 ppm; 
wheat, forage at 0.06 ppm; wheat, straw at 0.05 ppm; and wheat, hay at 
0.05 ppm. An enforcement procedure is available whereby extractable 
residues of iodosulfuron-methyl-sodium and AE F075736 are removed from 
crops by blending with acetonitrile. After blending, the extract is 
filtered, reduced in volume and partitioned with hexane to remove oils. 
The partially cleaned up extract is evaporated to dryness under reduced 
pressure; dissolved in dichloromethane and further cleaned-up on a 
series of solid phase extraction columns, first, silica gel, then Bond 
Elut(tm) ENV, and finally on polyamide 6S. The extract is again

Amendment to Existing Tolerance

     PP 8E7340. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2008-0272). Interregional Research Project 
No. 4 (IR-4), 500 College Road East, Suite 201W, Princeton, NJ 08540, 
proposes to delete the existing tolerance in 40 CFR 180.607 for the 
combined residues of the insecticide spiromesifen, 2-oxo-3-(2,4,6-
trimethylphenyl)-1-oxaspiro[4.4]non-3-en-4-yl 3, 3-dimethylbutanoate 
and its enol metabolite; 4-hydroxy-3-(2,4,6-trimethylphenyl)-1-
oxaspiro[4.4]non-3-en-2-one, calculated as the parent compound 
equivalents in or on the food commodity strawberry at 2.0 ppm since 
residues of spiromesifen on strawberry will be covered by the new 
tolerance proposed for berry and small fruit, low growing berry, 
subgroup 13-07G elsewhere in this document. Contact:

New Exemption from Tolerance

     1. PP 8E7315. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2008-0254). Rhodia, Inc. c/o SciReg, 
Inc., 12733 Director's Loop, Woodbridge, VA 22192, proposes to 
establish an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for residues 
of the oxirane, 2-methyl-, polymer with oxirane, mono [2-[2-(2-
butoxymethylethoxy)methylethoxy] methylethyl] ether (CAS Reg. No. 
926031-36-9), under 40 CFR 180.960 when used as an inert ingredient in 
pesticide formulations. Because this petition is a request for an 
exemption from the requirement of a tolerance, no analytical method is 
required. Contact: Karen Samek, 703-347-8825, samek.karen@epa.gov
     2. PP 5F6945. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2008-0275). Bayer CropScience, 2 T.W. 
Alexander Drive, P.O. Box 12014, Research Triangle Park, NC 27709, 
proposes to establish an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance 
for residues of the herbicide iodosulfuron-methyl-sodium methyl 4-iodo-
2-[3-(4-methoxy-6-methyl-1,3,5-triazin-2-yl)-ureidosulfonyl]benzoate, 
sodium salt, in or on the food commodity soybean. As shown in the 
confined rotational crop study, no residues of iodosulfuron-methyl-
sodium or its degradates are taken up by soybeans planted 7 days after 
application; thus no residues would be expected in soybeans planted 
several months after application. As this petition is a request for an 
exemption from the requirement of a tolerance analytical methods are 
not required. Contact: Hope Johnson, (703) 305-5410,
