ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY New Exemption from Tolerance [EPA—New England Region I—EPA–R01– OW–2008–20215; FRL–8566–8] 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, 2methyl-, polymer with oxirane, mono [2-[2-(2butoxymethylethoxy)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 iodosulfuronmethyl-sodium methyl 4-iodo-2-[3-(4methoxy-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 iodosulfuronmethyl-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, johnson.hope@epa.gov.
