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 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:41 Sep 22, 2011 Jkt 223001 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. What action is the agency taking? Under section 5 of FIFRA, 7 U.S.C. 136c, EPA can allow manufacturers to field test pesticides under development. Manufacturers are required to obtain an EUP before testing new pesticides or new uses of pesticides if they conduct experimental field tests on 10 acres or more of land or one acre or more of water. Pursuant to 40 CFR 172.11(a), the Agency has determined that the following EUP application may be of regional and national significance, and therefore is seeking public comment on the EUP application: Submitter: Syngenta Crop Protection, LLC, (100–EUP–RRL). Pesticide Chemical: Acibenzolar Smethyl. Summary of Request: Syngenta proposes that an EUP be allowed and initiated on May 1, 2012 and extended for up to two years ending on September 1, 2014. The purpose is to allow broader acres to be treated in order to better evaluate the diseases. Due to the nature of the crops, small plots are not feasible and crop destruct is very expensive. The formulation to be used for the EUP will be Actigard 50WG®. Geographic areas: 10 states, representing diverse agronomic zones; permission to conduct the EUP is requested within EPA Regions 1, 2, 3, 5, 10, and 11. Distribution within each EPA Region will be determined based upon state regulatory approval, availability of suitable testing sites, and availability/ participation of non-Syngenta personnel, e.g., university cooperators or other factors. Use of test product will be closely monitored and records will accurately document the disposition of all testing material. Trial applications will be made by licensed applicators. A temporary tolerance of 0.05 parts per million (ppm) for acibenzolar S-methyl is proposed in pome fruit and 0.05 ppm in citrus fruit during the experimental use period requested from 2012 through 2014. A copy of the application and any information submitted is available for public review in the docket established for this EUP application as described under ADDRESSES. Following the review of the application and any comments and data received in response to this solicitation, EPA will decide whether to issue or PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 59127 deny the EUP request, and if issued, the conditions under which it is to be conducted. Any issuance of an EUP will be announced in the Federal Register. List of Subjects Environmental protection, Experimental use permits. Dated: September 14, 2011. Daniel J.
