Abstract: Under the authority of sections 3004, 3005, 3008 and 3010 of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), as amended, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is finalizing revisions to the RCRA hazardous waste permitting program to allow a ‘‘standardized permit.’’ The standardized permit is available to facilities that generate hazardous waste and routinely manage the waste on-site in non-thermal units such as tanks, containers, and containment buildings. This ICR presents a comprehensive description of the information collection requirements for owners and operators submitting applications for a standardized permit or a standardized permit modification. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 82 hours per response. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements which have subsequently changed; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search data sources; complete and review the collection of information; PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and transmit or otherwise disclose the information. Respondents/Affected Entities: Business or other for-profit. Estimated Number of Respondents: 866. Frequency of Response: On occasion. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 15,045. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $1,203,688, includes $592,029 for labor and $611,659 annualized capital or O&M costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 608 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. This slight increase is due to an increase in the annual number of responses from 175 to 184. Dated: August 14, 2008. Sara Hisel-McCoy, Director, Collection Strategies Division. [FR Doc.

Background on the Receipt of Requests to Cancel and to Amend Registrations to Terminate Uses This notice announces receipt by EPA of requests from several registrants, listed in Table 2 of Unit III. to amend several carbaryl product registrations to terminate certain uses and eliminate certain application methods. Carbaryl is a broad-spectrum insecticide used on a variety of food and feed crops, ornamentals, turf, pasture, and E:\FR\FM\20AUN1.SGM 20AUN1 49186 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 162 / Wednesday, August 20, 2008 / Notices rangeland. In letters dated from July 22 to August 4, 2008, registrants of carbaryl products requested EPA to amend the product registrations identified in Table 1 of this notice to terminate certain uses and eliminate certain application methods. Specifically, these registrants are no longer supporting carbaryl use in or on wheat, millet, cotton, and fresh/ succulent shelled beans and peas (crop subgroup 6B); preplant drench or dip treatments of seedlings or seed pieces; use on poultry or in or on poultry premises/dwellings; all use on pets (dogs, cats and other pets) except for flea collars, use on pet premises, use in or on pet sleeping quarters; and all indoor applications. Registrants are no longer supporting the use of dust formulations in or on agricultural crops, application of granular formulations to leafy vegetables (except Brassica), ultralow volume (ULV) applications for adult mosquito control, and all applications by backpack sprayers. Last, Bayer CropScience is requesting termination of the broadcast application of liquid carbaryl products to residential lawns. (This use has previously been removed from all technical and manufacturing use product labels.) The complete lists of affected registrations and registrants are identified in Tables 1 and 2, respectively. EPA’s action on these requests will not terminate the last carbaryl products registered in the United States, or the last pesticide products registered in the United States for these uses. III. What Action is the Agency Taking? This notice announces receipt by EPA of requests from various registrants to amend certain carbaryl product registrations to terminate various uses. The affected products, uses, and the registrants making the requests are identified in Tables 1 and 2 of this unit. Under section 6(f)(1)(A) of FIFRA, registrants may request, at any time, that their pesticide registrations be canceled or amended to terminate one or more pesticide uses. Section 6(f)(1)(B) of FIFRA requires that before acting on a request for voluntary cancellation, EPA must provide a 30–day public comment period on the request for voluntary cancellation or use termination. In addition, section 6(f)(1)(C) of FIFRA requires that EPA provide a 180–day comment period on a request for voluntary cancellation or termination of any minor agricultural use before granting the request, unless: 1. The registrants request a waiver of the comment period, or 2. The Administrator determines that continued use of the pesticide would pose an unreasonable adverse effect on the environment. All of the carbaryl registrants listed in Table 2 have requested that EPA waive the 180–day comment period. EPA will provide a 30–day comment period on the proposed requests. Unless a request is withdrawn by the registrant within 30 days of publication of this notice, or if the Agency determines that there are substantive comments that warrant further review of this request, an order will be issued canceling or amending the affected registrations.

What is the Agency’s Authority for Taking this Action? Section 6(f)(1) of FIFRA provides that a registrant of a pesticide product may at any time request that any of its pesticide registrations be canceled or amended to terminate one or more uses. FIFRA further provides that, before acting on the request, EPA must publish a notice of receipt of any such request in the Federal Register. Thereafter, following the public comment period, the Administrator may approve such a request. V. Procedures for Withdrawal of Request and Considerations for Reregistration of Carbaryl Registrants who choose to withdraw a request for cancellation must submit such withdrawal in writing to the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT, postmarked before September 19, 2008. This written withdrawal of the request for cancellation will apply only to the applicable FIFRA section 6(f)(1) request listed in this notice. If the products have been subject to a previous cancellation action, the effective date of cancellation VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:36 Aug 19, 2008 Jkt 214001 Existing stocks are those stocks of registered pesticide products which are currently in the United States and which were packaged, labeled, and released for shipment prior to the effective date of the cancellation action. In any order issued in response to these requests for cancellation of product registrations and for amendments to terminate uses, the Agency proposes to include the following provisions for the treatment of any existing stocks of the products indentified or referenced in Tables 1 and 2 in Unit III. Provided that these stocks bear labels previously approved by EPA, registrants may sell and distribute existing stocks of the affected products for 18 months from the effective date of the Agency’s termination order, with the exception of Scotts Ortho Business Group, who may sell and distribute existing stocks of EPA Registration Number 239-2514 in Table 2 of Unit III. for 24 months from the effective date of the Agency’s termination order. If the request for voluntary cancellation and/or use termination is granted as discussed in this unit, the Agency intends to issue a cancellation order that will allow persons other than the registrant to continue to sell and/or use existing stocks of canceled products until such stocks are exhausted, provided that such use is consistent with the terms of the previously approved labeling on, or that accompanied, the canceled product. The order will specifically prohibit any use of existing stocks that is not consistent with such previously approved labeling. EPA intends to publish the cancellation order in the Federal Register after the end of the 30–day comment period for this Notice.

to Terminate Uses of Certain Pesticide Registrations

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In accordance with section 6(f)(1) of the Federal Insecticide, 
Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), as amended, EPA is issuing a 
notice of receipt of requests by various registrants to voluntarily 
amend their registrations to terminate uses of certain products 
containing carbaryl, or to eliminate certain application methods for 
carbaryl products. The requests would terminate carbaryl use in or on 
wheat, millet, cotton, and fresh/succulent shelled beans and peas (crop 
subgroup 6B); preplant drench or dip treatments of seedlings or seed 
pieces; use on poultry or in or on poultry premises/dwellings; all use 
on pets (dogs, cats and other pets) except for flea collars, use on pet 
premises, use in or on pet sleeping quarters; and all indoor 
applications. These requests would also terminate the use of dust 
formulations in or on agricultural crops, application of granular 
formulations to leafy vegetables (except Brassica), ultra-low volume 
(ULV) applications for adult mosquito control, and all applications by 
backpack sprayers. Last, the requests

[[Page 49185]]

would terminate broadcast application of liquid formulations of 
carbaryl to residential lawns. The requests would not terminate the 
last carbaryl products registered for use in the United States. EPA 
intends to grant these requests at the close of the comment period for 
this announcement unless the Agency receives substantive comments 
within the comment period that would merit its further review of the 
requests, or unless the registrants withdraw their requests within this 
period. Upon acceptance of these requests, any sale, distribution, or 
use of products listed in this notice will be permitted only if such 
sale, distribution, or use is consistent with the terms as described in 
the final order.

DATES: Comments must be received on or before September 19, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. General Information

A. Does this Action Apply to Me?

    This action is directed to the public in general, and may be of 
interest to a wide range of stakeholders including environmental, human 
health, and agricultural advocates; the chemical industry; pesticide 
users; and members of the public interested in the sale, distribution, 
or use of pesticides. Since others also may be interested, the Agency 
has not attempted to describe all the specific entities that may be

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.

II. Background on the Receipt of Requests to Cancel and to Amend 
Registrations to Terminate Uses

    This notice announces receipt by EPA of requests from several 
registrants, listed in Table 2 of Unit III. to amend several carbaryl 
product registrations to terminate certain uses and eliminate certain 
application methods. Carbaryl is a broad-spectrum insecticide used on a 
variety of food and feed crops, ornamentals, turf, pasture, and

[[Page 49186]]

rangeland. In letters dated from July 22 to August 4, 2008, registrants 
of carbaryl products requested EPA to amend the product registrations 
identified in Table 1 of this notice to terminate certain uses and 
eliminate certain application methods. Specifically, these registrants 
are no longer supporting carbaryl use in or on wheat, millet, cotton, 
and fresh/succulent shelled beans and peas (crop subgroup 6B); preplant 
drench or dip treatments of seedlings or seed pieces; use on poultry or 
in or on poultry premises/dwellings; all use on pets (dogs, cats and 
other pets) except for flea collars, use on pet premises, use in or on 
pet sleeping quarters; and all indoor applications. Registrants are no 
longer supporting the use of dust formulations in or on agricultural 
crops, application of granular formulations to leafy vegetables (except 
Brassica), ultra-low volume (ULV) applications for adult mosquito 
control, and all applications by backpack sprayers. Last, Bayer 
CropScience is requesting termination of the broadcast application of 
liquid carbaryl products to residential lawns. (This use has previously 
been removed from all technical and manufacturing use product labels.) 
The complete lists of affected registrations and registrants are 
identified in Tables 1 and 2, respectively. EPA's action on these 
requests will not terminate the last carbaryl products registered in 
the United States, or the last pesticide products registered in the 
United States for these uses.

III. What Action is the Agency Taking?

    This notice announces receipt by EPA of requests from various 
registrants to amend certain carbaryl product registrations to 
terminate various uses. The affected products, uses, and the 
registrants making the requests are identified in Tables 1 and 2 of 
this unit.
    Under section 6(f)(1)(A) of FIFRA, registrants may request, at any 
time, that their pesticide registrations be canceled or amended to 
terminate one or more pesticide uses. Section 6(f)(1)(B) of FIFRA 
requires that before acting on a request for voluntary cancellation, 
EPA must provide a 30-day public comment period on the request for 
voluntary cancellation or use termination. In addition, section 
6(f)(1)(C) of FIFRA requires that EPA provide a 180-day comment period 
on a request for voluntary cancellation or termination of any minor 
agricultural use before granting the request, unless:
    1. The registrants request a waiver of the comment period, or
    2. The Administrator determines that continued use of the pesticide 
would pose an unreasonable adverse effect on the environment.
    All of the carbaryl registrants listed in Table 2 have requested 
that EPA waive the 180-day comment period. EPA will provide a 30-day 
comment period on the proposed requests.
    Unless a request is withdrawn by the registrant within 30 days of 
publication of this notice, or if the Agency determines that there are 
substantive comments that warrant further review of this request, an 
order will be issued canceling or amending the affected registrations.

IV. What is the Agency's Authority for Taking this Action?

    Section 6(f)(1) of FIFRA provides that a registrant of a pesticide 
product may at any time request that any of its pesticide registrations 
be canceled or amended to terminate one or more uses. FIFRA further 
provides that, before acting on the request, EPA must publish a notice 
of receipt of any such request in the Federal Register. Thereafter, 
following the public comment period, the Administrator may approve such 
a request.

V. Procedures for Withdrawal of Request and Considerations for 
Reregistration of Carbaryl

    Registrants who choose to withdraw a request for cancellation must 
submit such withdrawal in writing to the person listed under FOR 
FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT, postmarked before September 19, 2008. This 
written withdrawal of the request for cancellation will apply only to 
the applicable FIFRA section 6(f)(1) request listed in this notice. If 
the products have been subject to a previous cancellation action, the 
effective date of cancellation and all other provisions of any earlier 
cancellation action are controlling.

VI. Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks

    Existing stocks are those stocks of registered pesticide products 
which are currently in the United States and which were packaged, 
labeled, and released for shipment prior to the effective date of the 
cancellation action.
    In any order issued in response to these requests for cancellation 
of product registrations and for amendments to terminate uses, the 
Agency proposes to include the following provisions for the treatment 
of any existing stocks of the products indentified or referenced in 
Tables 1 and 2 in Unit III. Provided that these stocks bear labels 
previously approved by EPA, registrants may sell and distribute 
existing stocks of the affected products for 18 months from the 
effective date of the Agency's termination order, with the exception of 
Scotts Ortho Business Group, who may sell and distribute existing 
stocks of EPA Registration Number 239-2514 in Table 2 of Unit III. for 
24 months from the effective date of the Agency's termination order.
    If the request for voluntary cancellation and/or use termination is 
granted as discussed in this unit, the Agency intends to issue a 
cancellation order that will allow persons other than the registrant to 
continue to sell and/or use existing stocks of canceled products until 
such stocks are exhausted, provided that such use is consistent with 
the terms of the previously approved labeling on, or that accompanied, 
the canceled product. The order will specifically prohibit any use of 
existing stocks that is not consistent with such previously approved 
labeling. EPA intends to publish the cancellation order in the Federal 
Register after the end of the 30-day comment period for this Notice.
