SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
I. Abstract
    The Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA) (16 U.S.C. 703 et seq.) 
prohibits the unauthorized take of migratory birds and authorizes the 
Secretary of the Interior to regulate take of migratory birds in the 
United States. Under this authority, we control the hunting of 
migratory game birds through regulations in 50 CFR part 20. On January 
1, 1991, we banned lead shot for hunting waterfowl and coots in the 
United States.
    The regulations at 50 CFR 20.134 outline the application and 
approval process for new types of nontoxic shot. When considering 
approval of a candidate material as nontoxic, we must ensure that it is 
not hazardous in the environment and that secondary exposure (ingestion 
of spent shot or its components) is not a hazard to migratory birds. To 
make that decision, we require each applicant to provide information 
about the solubility and toxicity of the candidate material. 
Additionally, for law enforcement purposes, a noninvasive field 
detection device must be available to distinguish candidate shot from 
lead shot. This information constitutes the bulk of an application for 
approval of nontoxic shot. The Director uses the data in the 
application to decide whether or not to approve a material as nontoxic.
