AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice announces EPA’s preliminary determination to terminate the Special Review of ethylene oxide (ETO). On January 27, 1978, EPA initiated Special Review based on developmental toxicity, mutagenicity, and neurotoxic effects in workers (43 FR 3801). In the early 1980s, the carcinogenicity of ETO became of concern and was added to the Special Review. Since the initiation of the Special Review, additional data and more comprehensive reviews of potential risks associated with ETO exposure have been completed, including those described in the 2006 Tolerance Reassessment and Risk Management Decision (TRED) (http:// www.epa.gov/oppsrrd1/REDs/ ethylene_oxide_tred.pdf) and the 2008 Reregistration Eligibility Decision (RED) (http://www.epa.gov/oppsrrd1//REDs/ ethylene-oxide-red.pdf) for ETO. In the 2008 RED, the Agency addressed occupational risk concerns that were the focus of the Special Review. During the reregistration process EPA conducted a public, intensive review of ETO risks and benefits to determine whether or not ETO registrations meet the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) standard for registration. The Agency determined that the benefits of ETO use outweigh the occupational risks associated with its use provided that the risk mitigation measures outlined in the RED are adopted and label amendments are made to reflect those measures. Because the risks that were the basis of the Special Review have been evaluated and the Agency has made a determination under FIFRA, as outlined above, the Agency is proposing to terminate the Special Review of ETO.
