EPA seeks to achieve environmental justice, the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of any group, including minority and/or low income populations, 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 or disproportionately high and adverse human health impacts or environmental effects from exposure to the pesticides discussed in this document, compared to the general population. 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 at 40 CFR part 155 or on the Agency’s website at https://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 reviewed 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 reviewing the pesticide registrations identified in the Table of this unit 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. A pesticide’s registration review begins when the Agency establishes a docket for the pesticide’s registration review case and opens the E:\FR\FM\25JNN1.SGM 25JNN1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 123 / Wednesday, June 25, 2008 / Notices docket for public review and comment.

In October 2006, the Agency issued schedules for upcoming registration reviews and included phosalone as one of the pesticides scheduled for registration review. The Agency opened a docket for the phosalone registration review case on February 19, 2008. Since first identifying phosalone as a Registration Review pesticide, the Agency has determined that there are no current phosalone Section 3 or Section 24(c) registrations. Therefore, the Agency has determined that phosalone is no longer subject to registration review and has closed the phosalone registration review case pursuant to 40 CFR 155.42(c). mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES B.

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.
    3. Environmental Justice. EPA seeks to achieve environmental 
justice, the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of any group, 
including minority and/or low income populations, 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 or disproportionately high and adverse human 
health impacts or environmental effects from exposure to the pesticides 
discussed in this document, compared to the general population.

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 at 
40 CFR part 155 or on the Agency's website at https://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 reviewed 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 reviewing the pesticide 
registrations identified in the Table of this unit 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. A pesticide's registration review begins when the 
Agency establishes a docket for the pesticide's registration review 
case and opens the

[[Page 36079]]

docket for public review and comment. At present, EPA is opening 
registration review dockets for the cases identified in the following 
table.

    The Agency is also announcing the closure of the phosalone 
registration review case (0027). In October 2006, the Agency issued 
schedules for upcoming registration reviews and included phosalone as 
one of the pesticides scheduled for registration review. The Agency 
opened a docket for the phosalone registration review case on February 
19, 2008. Since first identifying phosalone as a Registration Review 
pesticide, the Agency has determined that there are no current 
phosalone Section 3 or Section 24(c) registrations. Therefore, the 
Agency has determined that phosalone is no longer subject to 
registration review and has closed the phosalone registration review 
case pursuant to 40 CFR 155.42(c).

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:
     An overview of the registration review case status.
     A list of current product registrations and registrants.
     Federal Register notices regarding any pending 
registration actions.
     Federal Register notices regarding current or pending 
tolerances.
     Risk assessments.
     Bibliographies concerning current registrations.
     Summaries of incident data.
     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 isspecifically 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 https://
www.epa.gov/oppsrrd1/registration_review/schedule.htm. Information on 
the Agency's registration review program and its implementing 
regulation may be seen at https://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:
     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.
     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.

[[Page 36080]]

Written material may be submitted in paper or electronic form.
     Submitters must clearly identify the source of any 
submitted data or information.
     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.
     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 all 
actions required in the final decision on the registration review case 
have been completed.
