In the Federal Register of May 21, 2008 (73 FR 29456) (FRL–8362–1), EPA issued a proposal to revoke, modify, and establish specific tolerances for residues of the herbicides benfluralin, fluometuron, glyphosate, metolachlor, napropamide, norflurazon, and pyrazon; and the insecticides carbaryl, diazinon, dicrotophos, formetanate hydrochloride, and tau-fluvalinate. Also, the proposal of May 21 provided a 60–day comment period which invited public comment for consideration and for support of tolerance retention under FFDCA standards. In this final rule, EPA is revoking, modifying, and establishing specific tolerances for residues of benfluralin, carbaryl, diazinon, dicrotophos, fluometuron, formetanate hydrochloride, glyphosate, metolachlor, napropamide, norflurazon, pyrazon, and tau-fluvalinate in or on commodities listed in the regulatory text of this document. EPA is finalizing these tolerance actions in order to implement the tolerance recommendations made during the reregistration and tolerance reassessment processes (including follow-up on canceled or additional uses of pesticides). As part of these processes, EPA is required to determine whether each of the amended tolerances meets the safety standard of FFDCA. The safety finding determination of ‘‘reasonable certainty of no harm’’ is discussed in detail in each Reregistration Eligibility Decision (RED) and Report on FQPA Tolerance Reassessment Progress and Interim Risk Management Decision (TRED) for the active ingredient. REDs and TREDs recommend the implementation of certain tolerance actions, including modifications, to reflect current use patterns, to meet safety findings and change commodity names and groupings in accordance with new EPA policy. Printed copies of many REDs and TREDs may be obtained from EPA’s National Service Center for Environmental Publications (EPA/ NSCEP), P.O. Box 42419, Cincinnati, OH 45242–2419; telephone number: 1– 800–490–9198; fax number: 1–513–489– 8695; Internet at https://www.epa.gov/ ncepihom and from the National Technical Information Service (NTIS), 5285 Port Royal Rd., Springfield, VA 22161; telephone number: 1–800–553– 6847 or (703) 605–6000; Internet at VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:26 Sep 09, 2008 Jkt 214001 https://www.ntis.gov. Electronic copies of REDs and TREDs are available on the Internet at https://www.regulations.gov and https:// www.epa.gov/pesticides/ reregistration/status.htm. In this final rule, EPA is revoking certain tolerances and/or tolerance exemptions because either they are no longer needed or are associated with food uses that are no longer registered under FIFRA in the United States. Those instances where registrations were canceled were because the registrant failed to pay the required maintenance fee and/or the registrant voluntarily requested cancellation of one or more registered uses of the pesticide active ingredient. The tolerances revoked by this final rule are no longer necessary to cover residues of the relevant pesticides in or on domestically treated commodities or commodities treated outside but imported into the United States. It is EPA’s general practice to issue a final rule revoking those tolerances and tolerance exemptions for residues of pesticide active ingredients on crop uses for which there are no active registrations under FIFRA, unless any person in comments on the proposal indicates a need for the tolerance or tolerance exemption to cover residues in or on imported commodities or legally treated domestic commodities. EPA has historically been concerned that retention of tolerances that are not necessary to cover residues in or on legally treated foods may encourage misuse of pesticides within the United States. Generally, EPA will proceed with the revocation of these tolerances on the grounds discussed in Unit II.A. if one of the following conditions applies: • Prior to EPA’s issuance of a FFDCA section 408(f) order requesting additional data or issuance of a FFDCA section 408(d) or (e) order revoking the tolerances on other grounds, commenters retract the comment identifying a need for the tolerance to be retained. • EPA independently verifies that the tolerance is no longer needed. • The tolerance is not supported by data that demonstrate that the tolerance meets the requirements under the Federal Quality Protection Act (FQPA). In response to the proposal published in the Federal Register of May 21, 2008, EPA received three general comments and one specific comment on diazinon during the 60–day public comment period, as follows: 1. General—i. Comment by private citizens. Three private citizens expressed concerns about pesticides on food and that only zero tolerance levels PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 should be acceptable. In addition, those commenting expressed concern for pesticide use in general and their possible toxic effects on wildlife and humans. ii. Agency response. The private citizen’s comments did not take issue with any of the Agency’s specific conclusions to modify, revoke, or establish certain tolerances. Also, the commenters did not refer to any specific studies which pertained to those conclusions. EPA believes that the tolerance actions finalized herein meet the safety standard of FFDCA section 408, 21 U.S.C. 346a. In developing REDs and TREDs, EPA works with stakeholders, pesticide registrants, growers, and other pesticide users, environmental and public health interests, the States, the United States of Department of Agriculture (USDA), other Federal agencies, and others to develop voluntary measures or regulatory controls needed to effectively reduce risks of concern. Such options include voluntary cancellation of pesticide products or deletion of uses, declaring certain uses ineligible or not yet eligible, restricting use of products to certified applicators, limiting the amount or frequency of use, improving use directions and precautions, adding more protective clothing and equipment requirements requiring special packaging or engineering controls, requiring no-treatment buffer zones, employing environmental and ecological safeguards, and other measures. 2. Diazinon—i. Comment by the American Mushroom Institute. The commenter expressed a need for the retention of the tolerance for diazinon in 40 CFR 180.153 on mushrooms and mentioned working with EPA’s Registration Division to reinstate the mushroom use. Diazinon is considered a unique tool to control adult fly populations in mushroom production facilities (when the crop is not present). According to the commenter, these fly populations (and subsequent mechanically transmitted diseases to mushrooms) have increased dramatically on some farms since use of diazinon ceased. ii. Agency response. The Agency published a cancellation order in the Federal Register of July 25, 2007 (72 FR 40874) (FRL–8139–6) which resulted in the immediate cancellation of certain uses of diazinon including all uses in mushroom houses. The cancellation of the uses of diazinon in mushroom houses and the subsequent proposed revocation of the diazinon tolerance on mushrooms were not due to a lack of data to support the tolerance or due to E:\FR\FM\10SER1.SGM 10SER1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 176 / Wednesday, September 10, 2008 / Rules and Regulations jlentini on PROD1PC65 with RULES dietary risk, but rather to an exposure risk to workers during application of diazinon in mushroom houses. Since there are no current or pending uses of diazinon in mushroom houses and no resolution of the exposure risk to workers during application at this time, EPA will not retain the tolerance for diazinon in 40 CFR 180.153 on mushrooms, consistent with the Agency’s policy on tolerances for canceled uses discussed earlier in this unit. The Agency did not receive any specific comments, during the 60–day comment period, on the following pesticide active ingredients: Benfluralin, carbaryl, dicrotophos, fluometuron, formetanate hydrochloride, glyphosate, metolachlor, napropamide, norflurazon, pyrazon, and tau-fluvalinate. Therefore, the Agency is finalizing the amendments proposed in the Federal Register of May 21, 2008. For the detailed discussion of the Agency’s rationale for the establishments, revocations, and modifications to the tolerances, refer to the proposed rule of May 21, 2008. The regulatory text contained in the May 21, 2008 proposal regarding 40 CFR 180.153(a) inadvertently omitted an existing tolerance for use of diazinon on beet, garden tops at 0.7 parts per million (ppm), This was a clerical error; EPA did not intend to revoke this tolerance (and did not discuss any such revocation in the May 21, 2008 proposal). The regulatory text in this final rule corrects that error, including the existing tolerance in 40 CFR 180.153(a). The Agency also identified and corrected commodity terminology for consistency that was inadvertantly omitted in the proposal. These corrections in terminology do not affect or change which commodities are regulated; in 40 CFR 180.153 from escarole to endive in 40 CFR 180.169 from ‘‘vegetable, foliage legume, group 7’’ to ‘‘vegetable, foliage of legume, subgroup 7A, except soybean;’’ in 40 CFR 180.229(d) from ‘‘grain, cereal, forage group 16’’ to ‘‘grain, cereal, forage, fodder, and straw, group 16, forage’’ and ‘‘grain, cereal, fodder, and straw group 16’’ to ‘‘grain, cereal, forage, fodder, and straw, group 16, stover’’ and in 40 CFR 180.276 from ‘‘orange, sweet’’ to ‘‘orange.’’ B. What is the Agency’s Authority for Taking this Action? EPA may issue a regulation establishing, modifying, or revoking a tolerance under FFDCA section 408(e). In this final rule, EPA is establishing, modifying, and revoking tolerances to implement the tolerance VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:26 Sep 09, 2008 Jkt 214001 recommendations made during the reregistration and tolerance reassessment processes, and as followup on canceled uses of pesticides. As part of these processes, EPA is required to determine whether each of the amended tolerances meets the safety standards under FFDCA. The safety finding determination is found in detail in each post-FQPA RED and TRED for the active ingredient. REDs and TREDs recommend the implementation of certain tolerance actions, including modifications to reflect current use patterns, to meet safety findings, and change commodity names and groupings in accordance with new EPA policy. Printed and electronic copies of the REDs and TREDs are available as provided in Unit II.A. EPA has issued post-FQPA REDs and TREDs for benfluralin, carbaryl, diazinon, dicrotophos, fluometuron, formetanate-hydrochloride, metolachlor, napropamide, norflurazon, pyrazon and tau-fluvalinate. Also, EPA issued a RED prior to FQPA for glyphosate and made a safety finding which reassessed its tolerances according to FFDCA standard, maintaining them when new tolerances were established as noted in Unit II.A. REDs and TREDs contain the Agency’s evaluation of the database for these pesticides, including statements regarding additional data on the active ingredients that may be needed to confirm the potential human health and environmental risk assessments associated with current product uses, and REDs state conditions under which these uses and products will be eligible for reregistration. The REDs and TREDs recommended the establishment, modification, and/or revocation of specific tolerances. RED and TRED recommendations such as establishing or modifying tolerances, and in some cases revoking tolerances, are the result of assessment under the FFDCA standard of ‘‘reasonable certainty of no harm.’’ However, tolerance revocations recommended in REDs and TREDs that are made final in this document do not need such assessment when the tolerances are no longer necessary. EPA’s general practice is to revoke tolerances for residues of pesticide active ingredients on crops for which FIFRA registrations no longer exist and on which the pesticide may therefore no longer be used in the United States. EPA has historically been concerned that retention of tolerances that are not necessary to cover residues in or on legally treated foods may encourage misuse of pesticides within the United States. Nonetheless, EPA will establish and maintain tolerances even when corresponding domestic uses are PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 52609 canceled if the tolerances, which EPA refers to as ‘‘import tolerances,’’ are necessary to allow importation into the United States of food containing such pesticide residues. However, where there are no imported commodities that require these import tolerances, the Agency believes it is appropriate to revoke tolerances for unregistered pesticides in order to prevent potential misuse. When EPA establishes tolerances for pesticide residues in or on raw agricultural commodities, the Agency gives consideration to possible pesticide residues in meat, milk, poultry, and/or eggs produced by animals that are fed agricultural products (for example, grain or hay) containing pesticides residues (40 CFR 180.6). If there is no reasonable expectation of finite pesticide residues in or on meat, milk, poultry, or eggs, then tolerances do not need to be established for these commodities (40 CFR 180.6(b) and 180.6 (c)). C. When Do These Actions Become Effective? With the exception of certain tolerances for carbaryl and napropamide, for which EPA added specific expiration/revocation dates, the Agency is revoking, modifying, and establishing specific tolerances, and revising specific commodity terminologies effective on the date of publication of this final rule in the Federal Register. With the exception of tolerances for carbaryl and napropamide with specific expiration/revocation dates provided herein, the Agency believes that existing stocks of pesticide products labeled for the uses associated with the revoked tolerances have been completely exhausted and that treated commodities have had sufficient time for passage through the channels of trade. The Agency believes that these expiration dates allow users to exhaust stocks and allows sufficient time for passage of treated commodities through the channels of trade. Any commodities listed in the regulatory text of this document that are treated with the pesticides subject to this final rule, and that are in the channels of trade following the tolerance revocations, shall be subject to FFDCA section 408(1)(5), as established by FQPA. Under this unit, any residues of these pesticides in or on such food shall not render the food adulterated so long as it is shown to the satisfaction of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that: 1. The residue is present as the result of an application or use of the pesticide at a time and in a manner that was lawful under FIFRA. E:\FR\FM\10SER1.SGM 10SER1 52610 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 176 / Wednesday, September 10, 2008 / Rules and Regulations 2. The residue does not exceed the level that was authorized at the time of the application or use to be present on the food under a tolerance or exemption from tolerance. Evidence to show that food was lawfully treated may include records that verify the dates that the pesticide was applied to such food. jlentini on PROD1PC65 with RULES III. Are There Any International Trade Issues Raised by This Final Action? In making its tolerance decisions, EPA seeks to harmonize U.S. tolerances with international standards whenever possible, consistent with U.S. food safety standards and agricultural practices. EPA considers the international Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) established by the Codex Alimentarius Commission, as required by section 408(b)(4) of FFDCA. The Codex Alimentarius is a joint U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization/World Health Organization food standards program, and it is recognized as an international food safety standardssetting organization in trade agreements to which the United States is a party. EPA may establish a tolerance that is different from a Codex MRL; however, FFDCA section 408(b)(4) requires that EPA explain the reasons for departing from the Codex level in a document published for public comment. EPA’s effort to harmonize with Codex MRLs is summarized in the tolerance reassessment section of individual REDs and TREDs, and in the Residue Chemistry document which supports the RED and TRED, as mentioned in the proposed rule cited in Unit II.A. Specific tolerance actions in this rule and how they compare to Codex MRLs (if any) is discussed in Unit II.A. IV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews In this final rule, EPA establishes tolerances under FFDCA section 408(e), and also modifies and revokes specific tolerances established under FFDCA section 408. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has these types of actions (i.e., establishment and modification of a tolerance and tolerance revocation for which extraordinary circumstances do not exist) from review under Executive Order 12866, entitled Regulatory Planning and Review (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993). Because this final rule has been exempted from review under Executive Order 12866 due to its lack of significance, this final rule is not subject to Executive Order 13211, entitled Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001). This final rule does not VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:26 Sep 09, 2008 Jkt 214001 contain any information collections subject to OMB approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA), 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., or impose any enforceable duty or contain any unfunded mandate as described under Title II of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA) (Public Law 104–4). Nor does it require any special considerations as required by Executive Order 12898, entitled Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994); or OMB review or any other Agency action under Executive Order 13045, entitled Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997). This action does not involve any technical standards that would require Agency consideration of voluntary consensus standards pursuant to section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (NTTAA), Public Law 104–13, section 12(d) (15 U.S.C. 272 note). Pursuant to the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.), the Agency previously assessed whether establishment of tolerances, exemptions from tolerances, raising of tolerance levels, expansion of exemptions, or revocations might significantly impact a substantial number of small entities and concluded that, as a general matter, these actions do not impose a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. These analyses for tolerance establishments and modifications, and for tolerance revocations were published on May 4, 1981 (46 FR 24950) and on December 17, 1997 (62 FR 66020) (FRL–5753–1), respectively, and were provided to the Chief Counsel for Advocacy of the Small Business Administration. Taking into account this analysis, and available information concerning the pesticides listed in this final rule, the Agency hereby certifies that this final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. In a memorandum dated May 25, 2001, EPA determined that eight conditions must all be satisfied in order for an import tolerance or tolerance exemption revocation to adversely affect a significant number of small entity importers, and that there is a negligible joint probability of all eight conditions holding simultaneously with respect to any particular revocation. (This Agency document is available in the docket for this rule, as mentioned in Unit II.A.). Furthermore, for the pesticides named in this final rule, the Agency knows of PO 00000 Frm 00038 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 no extraordinary circumstances that exist as to the present revocations that would change EPA’s previous analysis. In addition, the Agency has determined that this action will not have a substantial direct effect on States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government, as specified in Executive Order 13132, entitled Federalism (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999). Executive Order 13132 requires EPA to develop an accountable process to ensure ‘‘meaningful and timely input by State and local officials in the development of regulatory policies that have federalism implications.’’ ‘‘Policies that have federalism implications’’ is defined in the Executive order to include regulations that have ‘‘substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government.’’ This final rule directly regulates growers, food processors, food handlers, and food retailers, not States. This action does not alter the relationships or distribution of power and responsibilities established by Congress in the preemption provisions of section 408(n)(4) of FFDCA. For these same reasons, the Agency has determined that this final rule does not have any ‘‘tribal implications’’ as described in Executive Order 13175, entitled Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000). Executive Order 13175, requires EPA to develop an accountable process to ensure ‘‘meaningful and timely input by tribal officials in the development of regulatory policies that have tribal implications.’’ ‘‘Policies that have tribal implications’’ is defined in the Executive order to include regulations that have ‘‘substantial direct effects on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and the Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes.’’ This final rule will not have substantial direct effects on tribal governments, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, as specified in Executive Order 13175. Thus, Executive Order 13175 does not apply to this final rule. E:\FR\FM\10SER1.SGM 10SER1 52611 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 176 / Wednesday, September 10, 2008 / Rules and Regulations V.

II. Background

A. What Action Is the Agency Taking?

    In the Federal Register of May 21, 2008 (73 FR 29456) (FRL-8362-1), 
EPA issued a proposal to revoke, modify, and establish specific 
tolerances for residues of the herbicides benfluralin, fluometuron, 
glyphosate, metolachlor, napropamide, norflurazon, and pyrazon; and the 
insecticides carbaryl, diazinon, dicrotophos, formetanate 
hydrochloride, and tau-fluvalinate. Also, the proposal of May 21 
provided a 60-day comment period which invited public comment for 
consideration and for support of tolerance retention under FFDCA 
standards.
    In this final rule, EPA is revoking, modifying, and establishing 
specific tolerances for residues of benfluralin, carbaryl, diazinon, 
dicrotophos, fluometuron, formetanate hydrochloride, glyphosate, 
metolachlor, napropamide, norflurazon, pyrazon, and tau-fluvalinate in 
or on commodities listed in the regulatory text of this document.
    EPA is finalizing these tolerance actions in order to implement the 
tolerance recommendations made during the reregistration and tolerance 
reassessment processes (including follow-up on canceled or additional 
uses of pesticides). As part of these processes, EPA is required to 
determine whether each of the amended tolerances meets the safety 
standard of FFDCA. The safety finding determination of ``reasonable 
certainty of no harm'' is discussed in detail in each Reregistration 
Eligibility Decision (RED) and Report on FQPA Tolerance Reassessment 
Progress and Interim Risk Management Decision (TRED) for the active 
ingredient. REDs and TREDs recommend the implementation of certain 
tolerance actions, including modifications, to reflect current use 
patterns, to meet safety findings and change commodity names and 
groupings in accordance with new EPA policy. Printed copies of many 
REDs and TREDs may be obtained from EPA's National Service Center for 
Environmental Publications (EPA/NSCEP), P.O. Box 42419, Cincinnati, OH 
45242-2419; telephone number: 1-800-490-9198; fax number: 1-513-489-
8695; Internet at https://www.epa.gov/ncepihom and from the National 
Technical Information Service (NTIS), 5285 Port Royal Rd., Springfield, 
VA 22161; telephone number: 1-800-553-6847 or (703) 605-6000; Internet 
at https://www.ntis.gov. Electronic copies of REDs and TREDs are 
available on the Internet at https://www.regulations.gov and https://
www.epa.gov/pesticides/reregistration/status.htm.
    In this final rule, EPA is revoking certain tolerances and/or 
tolerance exemptions because either they are no longer needed or are 
associated with food uses that are no longer registered under FIFRA in 
the United States. Those instances where registrations were canceled 
were because the registrant failed to pay the required maintenance fee 
and/or the registrant voluntarily requested cancellation of one or more 
registered uses of the pesticide active ingredient. The tolerances 
revoked by this final rule are no longer necessary to cover residues of 
the relevant pesticides in or on domestically treated commodities or 
commodities treated outside but imported into the United States. It is 
EPA's general practice to issue a final rule revoking those tolerances 
and tolerance exemptions for residues of pesticide active ingredients 
on crop uses for which there are no active registrations under FIFRA, 
unless any person in comments on the proposal indicates a need for the 
tolerance or tolerance exemption to cover residues in or on imported 
commodities or legally treated domestic commodities.
    EPA has historically been concerned that retention of tolerances 
that are not necessary to cover residues in or on legally treated foods 
may encourage misuse of pesticides within the United States.
    Generally, EPA will proceed with the revocation of these tolerances 
on the grounds discussed in Unit II.A. if one of the following 
conditions applies:
     Prior to EPA's issuance of a FFDCA section 408(f) order 
requesting additional data or issuance of a FFDCA section 408(d) or (e) 
order revoking the tolerances on other grounds, commenters retract the 
comment identifying a need for the tolerance to be retained.
     EPA independently verifies that the tolerance is no longer 
needed.
     The tolerance is not supported by data that demonstrate 
that the tolerance meets the requirements under the Federal Quality 
Protection Act (FQPA).
    In response to the proposal published in the Federal Register of 
May 21, 2008, EPA received three general comments and one specific 
comment on diazinon during the 60-day public comment period, as 
follows:
    1. General--i. Comment by private citizens. Three private citizens 
expressed concerns about pesticides on food and that only zero 
tolerance levels should be acceptable. In addition, those commenting 
expressed concern for pesticide use in general and their possible toxic 
effects on wildlife and humans.
    ii. Agency response. The private citizen's comments did not take 
issue with any of the Agency's specific conclusions to modify, revoke, 
or establish certain tolerances. Also, the commenters did not refer to 
any specific studies which pertained to those conclusions. EPA believes 
that the tolerance actions finalized herein meet the safety standard of 
FFDCA section 408, 21 U.S.C. 346a. In developing REDs and TREDs, EPA 
works with stakeholders, pesticide registrants, growers, and other 
pesticide users, environmental and public health interests, the States, 
the United States of Department of Agriculture (USDA), other Federal 
agencies, and others to develop voluntary measures or regulatory 
controls needed to effectively reduce risks of concern. Such options 
include voluntary cancellation of pesticide products or deletion of 
uses, declaring certain uses ineligible or not yet eligible, 
restricting use of products to certified applicators, limiting the 
amount or frequency of use, improving use directions and precautions, 
adding more protective clothing and equipment requirements requiring 
special packaging or engineering controls, requiring no-treatment 
buffer zones, employing environmental and ecological safeguards, and 
other measures.
    2. Diazinon--i. Comment by the American Mushroom Institute. The 
commenter expressed a need for the retention of the tolerance for 
diazinon in 40 CFR 180.153 on mushrooms and mentioned working with 
EPA's Registration Division to reinstate the mushroom use. Diazinon is 
considered a unique tool to control adult fly populations in mushroom 
production facilities (when the crop is not present). According to the 
commenter, these fly populations (and subsequent mechanically 
transmitted diseases to mushrooms) have increased dramatically on some 
farms since use of diazinon ceased.
    ii. Agency response. The Agency published a cancellation order in 
the Federal Register of July 25, 2007 (72 FR 40874) (FRL-8139-6) which 
resulted in the immediate cancellation of certain uses of diazinon 
including all uses in mushroom houses. The cancellation of the uses of 
diazinon in mushroom houses and the subsequent proposed revocation of 
the diazinon tolerance on mushrooms were not due to a lack of data to 
support the tolerance or due to

[[Page 52609]]

dietary risk, but rather to an exposure risk to workers during 
application of diazinon in mushroom houses. Since there are no current 
or pending uses of diazinon in mushroom houses and no resolution of the 
exposure risk to workers during application at this time, EPA will not 
retain the tolerance for diazinon in 40 CFR 180.153 on mushrooms, 
consistent with the Agency's policy on tolerances for canceled uses 
discussed earlier in this unit.
    The Agency did not receive any specific comments, during the 60-day 
comment period, on the following pesticide active ingredients: 
Benfluralin, carbaryl, dicrotophos, fluometuron, formetanate 
hydrochloride, glyphosate, metolachlor, napropamide, norflurazon, 
pyrazon, and tau-fluvalinate. Therefore, the Agency is finalizing the 
amendments proposed in the Federal Register of May 21, 2008. For the 
detailed discussion of the Agency's rationale for the establishments, 
revocations, and modifications to the tolerances, refer to the proposed 
rule of May 21, 2008.
    The regulatory text contained in the May 21, 2008 proposal 
regarding 40 CFR 180.153(a) inadvertently omitted an existing tolerance 
for use of diazinon on beet, garden tops at 0.7 parts per million 
(ppm), This was a clerical error; EPA did not intend to revoke this 
tolerance (and did not discuss any such revocation in the May 21, 2008 
proposal). The regulatory text in this final rule corrects that error, 
including the existing tolerance in 40 CFR 180.153(a). The Agency also 
identified and corrected commodity terminology for consistency that was 
inadvertantly omitted in the proposal. These corrections in terminology 
do not affect or change which commodities are regulated; in 40 CFR 
180.153 from escarole to endive in 40 CFR 180.169 from ``vegetable, 
foliage legume, group 7'' to ``vegetable, foliage of legume, subgroup 
7A, except soybean;'' in 40 CFR 180.229(d) from ``grain, cereal, forage 
group 16'' to ``grain, cereal, forage, fodder, and straw, group 16, 
forage'' and ``grain, cereal, fodder, and straw group 16'' to ``grain, 
cereal, forage, fodder, and straw, group 16, stover'' and in 40 CFR 
180.276 from ``orange, sweet'' to ``orange.''

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

    EPA may issue a regulation establishing, modifying, or revoking a 
tolerance under FFDCA section 408(e). In this final rule, EPA is 
establishing, modifying, and revoking tolerances to implement the 
tolerance recommendations made during the reregistration and tolerance 
reassessment processes, and as follow-up on canceled uses of 
pesticides. As part of these processes, EPA is required to determine 
whether each of the amended tolerances meets the safety standards under 
FFDCA. The safety finding determination is found in detail in each 
post-FQPA RED and TRED for the active ingredient. REDs and TREDs 
recommend the implementation of certain tolerance actions, including 
modifications to reflect current use patterns, to meet safety findings, 
and change commodity names and groupings in accordance with new EPA 
policy. Printed and electronic copies of the REDs and TREDs are 
available as provided in Unit II.A.
    EPA has issued post-FQPA REDs and TREDs for benfluralin, carbaryl, 
diazinon, dicrotophos, fluometuron, formetanate-hydrochloride, 
metolachlor, napropamide, norflurazon, pyrazon and tau-fluvalinate. 
Also, EPA issued a RED prior to FQPA for glyphosate and made a safety 
finding which reassessed its tolerances according to FFDCA standard, 
maintaining them when new tolerances were established as noted in Unit 
II.A. REDs and TREDs contain the Agency's evaluation of the database 
for these pesticides, including statements regarding additional data on 
the active ingredients that may be needed to confirm the potential 
human health and environmental risk assessments associated with current 
product uses, and REDs state conditions under which these uses and 
products will be eligible for reregistration. The REDs and TREDs 
recommended the establishment, modification, and/or revocation of 
specific tolerances. RED and TRED recommendations such as establishing 
or modifying tolerances, and in some cases revoking tolerances, are the 
result of assessment under the FFDCA standard of ``reasonable certainty 
of no harm.'' However, tolerance revocations recommended in REDs and 
TREDs that are made final in this document do not need such assessment 
when the tolerances are no longer necessary.
    EPA's general practice is to revoke tolerances for residues of 
pesticide active ingredients on crops for which FIFRA registrations no 
longer exist and on which the pesticide may therefore no longer be used 
in the United States. EPA has historically been concerned that 
retention of tolerances that are not necessary to cover residues in or 
on legally treated foods may encourage misuse of pesticides within the 
United States. Nonetheless, EPA will establish and maintain tolerances 
even when corresponding domestic uses are canceled if the tolerances, 
which EPA refers to as ``import tolerances,'' are necessary to allow 
importation into the United States of food containing such pesticide 
residues. However, where there are no imported commodities that require 
these import tolerances, the Agency believes it is appropriate to 
revoke tolerances for unregistered pesticides in order to prevent 
potential misuse.
    When EPA establishes tolerances for pesticide residues in or on raw 
agricultural commodities, the Agency gives consideration to possible 
pesticide residues in meat, milk, poultry, and/or eggs produced by 
animals that are fed agricultural products (for example, grain or hay) 
containing pesticides residues (40 CFR 180.6). If there is no 
reasonable expectation of finite pesticide residues in or on meat, 
milk, poultry, or eggs, then tolerances do not need to be established 
for these commodities (40 CFR 180.6(b) and 180.6 (c)).

C. When Do These Actions Become Effective?

    With the exception of certain tolerances for carbaryl and 
napropamide, for which EPA added specific expiration/revocation dates, 
the Agency is revoking, modifying, and establishing specific 
tolerances, and revising specific commodity terminologies effective on 
the date of publication of this final rule in the Federal Register. 
With the exception of tolerances for carbaryl and napropamide with 
specific expiration/revocation dates provided herein, the Agency 
believes that existing stocks of pesticide products labeled for the 
uses associated with the revoked tolerances have been completely 
exhausted and that treated commodities have had sufficient time for 
passage through the channels of trade. The Agency believes that these 
expiration dates allow users to exhaust stocks and allows sufficient 
time for passage of treated commodities through the channels of trade.
    Any commodities listed in the regulatory text of this document that 
are treated with the pesticides subject to this final rule, and that 
are in the channels of trade following the tolerance revocations, shall 
be subject to FFDCA section 408(1)(5), as established by FQPA. Under 
this unit, any residues of these pesticides in or on such food shall 
not render the food adulterated so long as it is shown to the 
satisfaction of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that:
    1. The residue is present as the result of an application or use of 
the pesticide at a time and in a manner that was lawful under FIFRA.

[[Page 52610]]

    2. The residue does not exceed the level that was authorized at the 
time of the application or use to be present on the food under a 
tolerance or exemption from tolerance. Evidence to show that food was 
lawfully treated may include records that verify the dates that the 
pesticide was applied to such food.

III. Are There Any International Trade Issues Raised by This Final 
Action?

    In making its tolerance decisions, EPA seeks to harmonize U.S. 
tolerances with international standards whenever possible, consistent 
with U.S. food safety standards and agricultural practices. EPA 
considers the international Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) established 
by the Codex Alimentarius Commission, as required by section 408(b)(4) 
of FFDCA. The Codex Alimentarius is a joint U.N. Food and Agriculture 
Organization/World Health Organization food standards program, and it 
is recognized as an international food safety standards-setting 
organization in trade agreements to which the United States is a party. 
EPA may establish a tolerance that is different from a Codex MRL; 
however, FFDCA section 408(b)(4) requires that EPA explain the reasons 
for departing from the Codex level in a document published for public 
comment. EPA's effort to harmonize with Codex MRLs is summarized in the 
tolerance reassessment section of individual REDs and TREDs, and in the 
Residue Chemistry document which supports the RED and TRED, as 
mentioned in the proposed rule cited in Unit II.A. Specific tolerance 
actions in this rule and how they compare to Codex MRLs (if any) is 
discussed in Unit II.A.

IV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    In this final rule, EPA establishes tolerances under FFDCA section 
408(e), and also modifies and revokes specific tolerances established 
under FFDCA section 408. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has 
these types of actions (i.e., establishment and modification of a 
tolerance and tolerance revocation for which extraordinary 
circumstances do not exist) from review under Executive Order 12866, 
entitled Regulatory Planning and Review (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993). 
Because this final rule has been exempted from review under Executive 
Order 12866 due to its lack of significance, this final rule is not 
subject to Executive Order 13211, entitled Actions Concerning 
Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or 
Use (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001). This final rule does not contain any 
information collections subject to OMB approval under the Paperwork 
Reduction Act (PRA), 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., or impose any enforceable 
duty or contain any unfunded mandate as described under Title II of the 
Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA) (Public Law 104-4). Nor 
does it require any special considerations as required by Executive 
Order 12898, entitled Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice 
in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations (59 FR 7629, 
February 16, 1994); or OMB review or any other Agency action under 
Executive Order 13045, entitled Protection of Children from 
Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks (62 FR 19885, April 23, 
1997). This action does not involve any technical standards that would 
require Agency consideration of voluntary consensus standards pursuant 
to section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement 
Act of 1995 (NTTAA), Public Law 104-13, section 12(d) (15 U.S.C. 272 
note). Pursuant to the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) (5 U.S.C. 601 
et seq.), the Agency previously assessed whether establishment of 
tolerances, exemptions from tolerances, raising of tolerance levels, 
expansion of exemptions, or revocations might significantly impact a 
substantial number of small entities and concluded that, as a general 
matter, these actions do not impose a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities. These analyses for tolerance 
establishments and modifications, and for tolerance revocations were 
published on May 4, 1981 (46 FR 24950) and on December 17, 1997 (62 FR 
66020) (FRL-5753-1), respectively, and were provided to the Chief 
Counsel for Advocacy of the Small Business Administration. Taking into 
account this analysis, and available information concerning the 
pesticides listed in this final rule, the Agency hereby certifies that 
this final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities. In a memorandum dated May 25, 
2001, EPA determined that eight conditions must all be satisfied in 
order for an import tolerance or tolerance exemption revocation to 
adversely affect a significant number of small entity importers, and 
that there is a negligible joint probability of all eight conditions 
holding simultaneously with respect to any particular revocation. (This 
Agency document is available in the docket for this rule, as mentioned 
in Unit II.A.). Furthermore, for the pesticides named in this final 
rule, the Agency knows of no extraordinary circumstances that exist as 
to the present revocations that would change EPA's previous analysis. 
In addition, the Agency has determined that this action will not have a 
substantial direct effect on States, on the relationship between the 
national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and 
responsibilities among the various levels of government, as specified 
in Executive Order 13132, entitled Federalism (64 FR 43255, August 10, 
1999). Executive Order 13132 requires EPA to develop an accountable 
process to ensure ``meaningful and timely input by State and local 
officials in the development of regulatory policies that have 
federalism implications.'' ``Policies that have federalism 
implications'' is defined in the Executive order to include regulations 
that have ``substantial direct effects on the States, on the 
relationship between the national government and the States, or on the 
distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of 
government.'' This final rule directly regulates growers, food 
processors, food handlers, and food retailers, not States. This action 
does not alter the relationships or distribution of power and 
responsibilities established by Congress in the preemption provisions 
of section 408(n)(4) of FFDCA. For these same reasons, the Agency has 
determined that this final rule does not have any ``tribal 
implications'' as described in Executive Order 13175, entitled 
Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments (65 FR 
67249, November 9, 2000). Executive Order 13175, requires EPA to 
develop an accountable process to ensure ``meaningful and timely input 
by tribal officials in the development of regulatory policies that have 
tribal implications.'' ``Policies that have tribal implications'' is 
defined in the Executive order to include regulations that have 
``substantial direct effects on one or more Indian tribes, on the 
relationship between the Federal Government and the Indian tribes, or 
on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal 
Government and Indian tribes.'' This final rule will not have 
substantial direct effects on tribal governments, on the relationship 
between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the 
distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal 
Government and Indian tribes, as specified in Executive Order 13175. 
Thus, Executive Order 13175 does not apply to this final rule.

V. Congressional Review Act

    The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., generally 
provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating 
the rule must submit a rule report to each House of the Congress and to 
the Comptroller General of the United States. EPA will submit a report 
containing this rule and other required information to the U.S. Senate, 
the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the 
United States prior to publication of this final rule in the Federal 
Register. This final rule is not a ``major rule'' as defined by 5 
U.S.C. 804(2).
