Specifically, the Agency has considered the nature and its pattern of use, application methods and rates, and level and extent of potential exposure. Based on these reviews, the Agency was able to make basic health and safety determinations which show that use of Bacillus thuringiensis Vip3Aa19 (vector pNOV3001; OECD Unique Identifier SYN-IR102-7) and modified Cry1Ab (vector pNOV4641; OECD Unique Identifier SYN-IR67B-1) insecticidal proteins and the genetic material necessary for their production in VipCot cotton during the period of conditional registration will not cause any unreasonable adverse effect on the environment, and that use of the pesticides are, in the public interest.

II. Did EPA Conditionally Approve the Application?

    A conditional registration may be granted under section 3(c)(7)(C) 
of FIFRA for a new active ingredient where certain data are lacking, on 
condition that such data are received by the end of the conditional 
registration period and do not meet or exceed the risk criteria set 
forth in 40 CFR 154.7; that use of the pesticide during the conditional 
registration period will not cause unreasonable adverse effects; and 
that use of the pesticide is in the public interest. The Agency has 
considered the available data on the risks associated with the proposed 
use of Bacillus thuringiensis Vip3Aa19 (vector pNOV3001; OECD Unique 
Identifier SYN-IR102-7) and modified Cry1Ab (vector pNOV4641; OECD 
Unique Identifier SYN-IR67B-1) insecticidal proteins and the genetic 
material necessary for their production in VipCot cotton, and 
information on social, economic, and environmental benefits to be 
derived from such use. Specifically, the Agency has considered the 
nature and its pattern of use, application methods and rates, and level 
and extent of potential exposure. Based on these reviews, the Agency 
was able to make basic health and safety determinations which show that 
use of Bacillus thuringiensis Vip3Aa19 (vector pNOV3001; OECD Unique 
Identifier SYN-IR102-7) and modified Cry1Ab (vector pNOV4641; OECD 
Unique Identifier SYN-IR67B-1) insecticidal proteins and the genetic 
material necessary for their production in VipCot cotton during the 
period of conditional registration will not cause any unreasonable 
adverse effect on the environment, and that use of the pesticides are, 
in the public interest.
    Consistent with section 3(c)(7)(C) of FIFRA, the Agency has 
determined that these conditional registrations are in the public 
interest. Use of the pesticides are of significance to the user 
community, and appropriate labeling, use directions, and other measures 
have been taken to

ensure that use of the pesticides will not result in unreasonable 
adverse effects to man and the environment.
