E8–30527 Filed 12–23–08; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 6560–50–S ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY [EPA–HQ–OPP–2007–0994; FRL–8391–9] Registration Review; Atonik Docket Opened for Review and Comment mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). ACTION: Notice. SUMMARY: EPA has established registration review dockets for the pesticides listed in the table in Unit III.A. With this document, EPA is opening the public comment period for these registration reviews. Registration review is EPA’s periodic review of pesticide registrations to ensure that each pesticide continues to satisfy the statutory standard for registration, that is, the pesticide can perform its intended function without unreasonable adverse effects on human health or the environment. Registration review dockets contain information that will assist the public in understanding the types of information and issues that the Agency may consider during the course of registration reviews. Through this program, EPA is ensuring that each pesticide’s registration is based on current scientific and other knowledge, including its effects on human health and the environment. This document also announces the Agency’s intent not to open a registration review docket for Ampelomyces quisqualis and for Candia oleophila]. These pesticides do not currently have any actively registered pesticide products and are not, therefore, scheduled for review under the registration review program. DATES: Comments must be received on or before February 23, 2009.

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, farmworker, 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 affected by this action. If you have any questions regarding the applicability of this action to a particular entity, consult the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. B. What Should I Consider as I Prepare My Comments for EPA? 1. Submitting CBI. Do not submit this information to EPA through regulations.gov or e-mail. Clearly mark the part or all of the information that you claim to be CBI. For CBI information in a disk or CD-ROM that you mail to EPA, mark the outside of the disk or CD-ROM as CBI and then identify electronically within the disk or CD-ROM the specific information that is claimed as CBI. In addition to one complete version of the comment that includes information claimed as CBI, a copy of the comment that does not contain the information claimed as CBI must be submitted for inclusion in the public docket. Information so marked will not be disclosed except in E:\FR\FM\24DEN1.SGM 24DEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 248 / Wednesday, December 24, 2008 / Notices accordance with procedures set forth in 40 CFR part 2. 2. Tips for preparing your comments. When submitting comments, remember to: i. Identify the document by docket ID number and other identifying information (subject heading, Federal Register date and page number). ii. Follow directions. The Agency may ask you to respond to specific questions or organize comments by referencing a Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) part or section number. iii. Explain why you agree or disagree; suggest alternatives and substitute language for your requested changes. iv. Describe any assumptions and provide any technical information and/ or data that you used. v. If you estimate potential costs or burdens, explain how you arrived at your estimate in sufficient detail to allow for it to be reproduced. vi. Provide specific examples to illustrate your concerns and 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. 3. Environmental justice. EPA seeks to achieve environmental justice, the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of any group, including minority and/or low income populations, in the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies. To help address potential environmental justice issues, the Agency seeks information on any groups or segments of the population who, as a result of their location, cultural practices, or other factors, may have atypical or disproportionately high and adverse human health impacts or environmental effects from exposure to the pesticide(s) discussed in this document, compared to the general population. II. Authority EPA is initiating its reviews of the pesticides identified in this document pursuant to section 3(g) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) and the Procedural Regulations for Registration Review at 40 CFR part 155, subpart C. Section 3(g) of FIFRA provides, among other things, that the registrations of pesticides are to be reviewed every 15 years. Under FIFRA section 3(a), a pesticide product 79103 may be registered or remain registered only if it meets the statutory standard for registration given in FIFRA section 3(c)(5). When used in accordance with widespread and commonly recognized practice, the pesticide product must perform its intended function without unreasonable adverse effects on the environment; that is, without any unreasonable risk to man or the environment, or a human dietary risk from residues that result from the use of a pesticide in or on food. III. Registration Reviews A. What Action is the Agency Taking? As directed by FIFRA section 3(g), EPA is reviewing the pesticide registrations identified in the table in this unit to assure that they continue to satisfy the FIFRA standard for registration—that is, they can still be used without unreasonable adverse effects on human health or the environment. A pesticide’s registration review begins when the Agency establishes a docket for the pesticide’s registration review case and opens the docket for public review and comment. At present, EPA is opening registration review dockets for the cases identified in the following table. TABLE—REGISTRATION REVIEW DOCKETS OPENING Registration Review Case Name and Number mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Atonick; Case 6067 18:45 Dec 23, 2008 RAL, Telephone Number, E-mail Address EPA–HQ–OPP–2008–0832 EPA is also announcing that it will not be opening a docket for Ampelomyces quisqualis and for Candia oleophila because these pesticides are not included in any products actively registered under FIFRA section 3. Ampelomyces quisqualis isolate M-10: This active ingredient was registered by Ecogen Inc. in June 1994 and voluntarily cancelled on October 15, 2004 at the registrants request due to non-payment of maintenance fee (69 FR 62676, October 27, 2004)(FRL–7683–7). The exemption from tolerance of residues of Ampelomyces quisqualis isolate M-10 on all raw agricultural commodities (RACs) was reassessed on July 18, 2002 and met the FQPA 1996 Safety standard (40 CFR 180.1131, 59 FR 33437, June 29, 1994). However, there is no registrant for the active ingredient at this time. Candida oleophila isolate I-182: This active ingredient was registered by Ecogen Inc. in February 1995 and voluntarily cancelled on July 24, 1996 at VerDate Aug<31>2005 Docket ID Number Jkt 217001 Driss Benmhend 703–308–9525 benmhend.driss@epa.gov the registrants request due to nonpayment of maintenance fee (61 FR 39964, July 31, 1996)(FRL–5383–7). The exemption from tolerance of residues of Candida oleophila isolate I-182 on all RACs was reassessed on May 10, 2002 and met the FQPA 1996 Safety standard (40 CFR 180.1144, 60 FR 11033, March 1, 1995)(FRL–4938–1). However, there is no registrant for the active ingredient at this time. The Agency will take separate actions to cancel any remaining FIFRA section 24(c) Special Local Needs registrations with this active ingredient and to propose revocation of any affected tolerances that are not supported for import purposes only. B. Docket Content 1. Review dockets. The registration review dockets contain information that the Agency may consider in the course of the registration review. The Agency may include information from its files PO 00000 Frm 00065 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 including, but not limited to, the following information: • An overview of the registration review case status. • A list of current product registrations and registrants. • Federal Register notices regarding any pending registration actions. • Federal Register notices regarding current or pending tolerances. • Risk assessments. • Bibliographies concerning current registrations. • Summaries of incident data. • Any other pertinent data or information. Each docket contains a document summarizing what the Agency currently knows about the pesticide case and a preliminary work plan for anticipated data and assessment needs. Additional documents provide more detailed information. During this public comment period, the Agency is asking that interested persons identify any additional information they believe the Agency should consider during the E:\FR\FM\24DEN1.SGM 24DEN1 mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES 79104 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 248 / Wednesday, December 24, 2008 / Notices registration reviews of these pesticides. The Agency identifies in each docket the areas where public comment is specifically requested, though comment in any area is welcome. 2. Other related information. More information on these cases, including the active ingredients for each case, may be located in the registration review schedule on the Agency’s website at http://www.epa.gov/oppsrrd1/ registration_review/schedule.htm. Information on the Agency’s registration review program and its implementing regulation may be seen at http://www. epa.gov/oppsrrd1/registration_review. 3. Information submission requirements. Anyone may submit data or information in response to this document. To be considered during a pesticide’s registration review, the submitted data or information must meet the following requirements: • To ensure that EPA will consider data or information submitted, interested persons must submit the data or information during the comment period. The Agency may, at its discretion, consider data or information submitted at a later date. • The data or information submitted must be presented in a legible and useable form. For example, an English translation must accompany any material that is not in English and a written transcript must accompany any information submitted as an audiographic or videographic record. Written material may be submitted in paper or electronic form. • Submitters must clearly identify the source of any submitted data or information. • Submitters may request the Agency to reconsider data or information that the Agency rejected in a previous review. However, submitters must explain why they believe the Agency should reconsider the data or information in the pesticide’s registration review. • As provided in 40 CFR 155.58, the registration review docket for each pesticide case will remain publicly accessible through the duration of the registration review process; that is, until all actions required in the final decision on the registration review case have been completed.

Registration Review; Atonik Docket Opened for Review and Comment

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: EPA has established registration review dockets for the 
pesticides listed in the table in Unit III.A. With this document, EPA 
is opening the public comment period for these registration reviews. 
Registration review is EPA's periodic review of pesticide registrations 
to ensure that each pesticide continues to satisfy the statutory 
standard for registration, that is, the pesticide can perform its 
intended function without unreasonable adverse effects on human health 
or the environment. Registration review dockets contain information 
that will assist the public in understanding the types of information 
and issues that the Agency may consider during the course of 
registration reviews. Through this program, EPA is ensuring that each 
pesticide's registration is based on current scientific and other 
knowledge, including its effects on human health and the environment. 
This document also announces the Agency's intent not to open a 
registration review docket for Ampelomyces quisqualis and for Candia 
oleophila]. These pesticides do not currently have any actively 
registered pesticide products and are not, therefore, scheduled for 
review under the registration review program.

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, farmworker, 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 affected by this action. If you have any questions 
regarding the applicability of this action to a particular entity, 
consult the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.

B. What Should I Consider as I Prepare My Comments for EPA?

    1. Submitting CBI. Do not submit this information to EPA through 
regulations.gov or e-mail. Clearly mark the part or all of the 
information that you claim to be CBI. For CBI information in a disk or 
CD-ROM that you mail to EPA, mark the outside of the disk or CD-ROM as 
CBI and then identify electronically within the disk or CD-ROM the 
specific information that is claimed as CBI. In addition to one 
complete version of the comment that includes information claimed as 
CBI, a copy of the comment that does not contain the information 
claimed as CBI must be submitted for inclusion in the public docket. 
Information so marked will not be disclosed except in

[[Page 79103]]

accordance with procedures set forth in 40 CFR part 2.
    2. Tips for preparing your comments. When submitting comments, 
remember to:
    i. Identify the document by docket ID number and other identifying 
information (subject heading, Federal Register date and page number).
    ii. Follow directions. The Agency may ask you to respond to 
specific questions or organize comments by referencing a Code of 
Federal Regulations (CFR) part or section number.
    iii. Explain why you agree or disagree; suggest alternatives and 
substitute language for your requested changes.
    iv. Describe any assumptions and provide any technical information 
and/or data that you used.
    v. If you estimate potential costs or burdens, explain how you 
arrived at your estimate in sufficient detail to allow for it to be 
reproduced.
    vi. Provide specific examples to illustrate your concerns and 
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.
    3. Environmental justice. EPA seeks to achieve environmental 
justice, the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of any group, 
including minority and/or low income populations, in the development, 
implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and 
policies. To help address potential environmental justice issues, the 
Agency seeks information on any groups or segments of the population 
who, as a result of their location, cultural practices, or other 
factors, may have atypical or disproportionately high and adverse human 
health impacts or environmental effects from exposure to the 
pesticide(s) discussed in this document, compared to the general 
population.

II. Authority

    EPA is initiating its reviews of the pesticides identified in this 
document pursuant to section 3(g) of the Federal Insecticide, 
Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) and the Procedural Regulations 
for Registration Review at 40 CFR part 155, subpart C. Section 3(g) of 
FIFRA provides, among other things, that the registrations of 
pesticides are to be reviewed every 15 years. Under FIFRA section 3(a), 
a pesticide product may be registered or remain registered only if it 
meets the statutory standard for registration given in FIFRA section 
3(c)(5). When used in accordance with widespread and commonly 
recognized practice, the pesticide product must perform its intended 
function without unreasonable adverse effects on the environment; that 
is, without any unreasonable risk to man or the environment, or a human 
dietary risk from residues that result from the use of a pesticide in 
or on food.

III. Registration Reviews

A. What Action is the Agency Taking?

    As directed by FIFRA section 3(g), EPA is reviewing the pesticide 
registrations identified in the table in this unit to assure that they 
continue to satisfy the FIFRA standard for registration--that is, they 
can still be used without unreasonable adverse effects on human health 
or the environment. A pesticide's registration review begins when the 
Agency establishes a docket for the pesticide's registration review 
case and opens the docket for public review and comment. At present, 
EPA is opening registration review dockets for the cases identified in 
the following table.

     EPA is also announcing that it will not be opening a docket for 
Ampelomyces quisqualis and for Candia oleophila because these 
pesticides are not included in any products actively registered under 
FIFRA section 3.
    Ampelomyces quisqualis isolate M-10: This active ingredient was 
registered by Ecogen Inc. in June 1994 and voluntarily cancelled on 
October 15, 2004 at the registrants request due to non-payment of 
maintenance fee (69 FR 62676, October 27, 2004)(FRL-7683-7). The 
exemption from tolerance of residues of Ampelomyces quisqualis isolate 
M-10 on all raw agricultural commodities (RACs) was reassessed on July 
18, 2002 and met the FQPA 1996 Safety standard (40 CFR 180.1131, 59 FR 
33437, June 29, 1994). However, there is no registrant for the active 
ingredient at this time.
    Candida oleophila isolate I-182: This active ingredient was 
registered by Ecogen Inc. in February 1995 and voluntarily cancelled on 
July 24, 1996 at the registrants request due to non-payment of 
maintenance fee (61 FR 39964, July 31, 1996)(FRL-5383-7). The exemption 
from tolerance of residues of Candida oleophila isolate I-182 on all 
RACs was reassessed on May 10, 2002 and met the FQPA 1996 Safety 
standard (40 CFR 180.1144, 60 FR 11033, March 1, 1995)(FRL-4938-1). 
However, there is no registrant for the active ingredient at this time.
    The Agency will take separate actions to cancel any remaining FIFRA 
section 24(c) Special Local Needs registrations with this active 
ingredient and to propose revocation of any affected tolerances that 
are not supported for import purposes only.

 B. Docket Content

registration reviews of these pesticides. The Agency identifies in each 
docket the areas where public comment is specifically requested, though 
comment in any area is welcome.
    2. Other related information. More information on these cases, 
including the active ingredients for each case, may be located in the 
registration review schedule on the Agency's website at http://

     3. Information submission requirements. Anyone may submit data or 
information in response to this document. To be considered during a 
pesticide's registration review, the submitted data or information must 
meet the following requirements:
     To ensure that EPA will consider data or information 
submitted, interested persons must submit the data or information 
during the comment period. The Agency may, at its discretion, consider 
data or information submitted at a later date.
     The data or information submitted must be presented in a 
legible and useable form. For example, an English translation must 
accompany any material that is not in English and a written transcript 
must accompany any information submitted as an audiographic or 
videographic record. Written material may be submitted in paper or 
electronic form.
     Submitters must clearly identify the source of any 
submitted data or information.
     Submitters may request the Agency to reconsider data or 
information that the Agency rejected in a previous review. However, 
submitters must explain why they believe the Agency should reconsider 
the data or information in the pesticide's registration review.
     As provided in 40 CFR 155.58, the registration review 
docket for each pesticide case will remain publicly accessible through 
the duration of the registration review process; that is, until all 
actions required in the final decision on the registration review case 
have been completed.
