Syngenta is submitting a petition to EPA under the FFDCA, as amended by the Food Quality Protection Act (FQPA), requesting an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance. This petition requests the elimination of the need to establish a maximum permissible level for residues of polymers of one or more diglycidyl ethers of bisphenol A, resorcinol, glycerol, cyclohexanedimethanol, neopentyl glycol, or polyethylene glycol with one or more of the following: polyoxypropylene diamine, polyoxypropylene triamine, naminoethylpiperazine, trimethyl-1,6hexanediamine isophorone diamine, N,N-dimethyl-1,3-diaminopropane, nadic methyl anhydride, 1,2cyclohexanedicarboxylic anhydride and 1,2,3,6-tetrahydrophthalic anhydride in or on all raw agricultural commodities. The petitioner believes no analytical method is needed because this information is generally not required when all criteria for polymer exemption per 40 CFR 723.250 are met. In addition, Syngenta is petitioning for an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance without any numerical limitations.

Rhodia Inc., c/o SciReg, Inc., 12733 Director’s Loop, Woodbridge, VA 22192, requests to establish an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for residues of cationic hydroxypropyl guar (CAS No. 71329– 50–5), with a minimum number average molecular weight (in amu) of 500,000, under 40 CFR 180.920 when used as an inert ingredient in pesticide formulations. This tolerance exemption petition summarizes and relies upon available data for cationic hydroxypropyl guar and the structurally similar substance, guar gum. The cationic hydroxypropyl guar data presented in this tolerance exemption petition are on two products. One VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:22 Sep 27, 2012 Jkt 226001 product had a molar substitution (MS) of 0.6 and a degree of substitution (DS) of 0.1 and the other product had a MS of 0.6 and a DS of 0.3. In addition, test results on cationic guars are included as supporting data. Rhodia is requesting that cationic hydroxypropyl guar be exempt from the requirement of a tolerance under 40 CFR 180.920. Therefore, Rhodia believes that an analytical method to determine residues in treated crops is not relevant. Contact: William Cutchin, RD, (703) 305–7990, email address: cutchin.william@epa.gov. 3. PP 2F7978. (EPA–HQ–OPP–2012– 0264). Becker Underwood, Inc., 801 Dayton Ave., P.O. Box 667, Ames, IA 50010, requests to establish an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for residues of the elicitor of Induced Systemic Resistance, Bacillus pumilus strain BU F–33, in or on all food commodities. The petitioner believes no analytical method is needed because it is expected that, as proposed, use of Bacillus pumilus strain BU F–33 (i.e., seed treatment, in-furrow, and soil drench pesticide applications) would not result in residues that are of toxicological concern.

SUMMARY: NASA hereby provides notice of the cancellation of three 
proposed procurement rules without further action. These rules were not 
finalized in a timely manner due to outside circumstances that 
prevented their completion. Inasmuch as NASA is now in process of a 
major NASA FAR Supplement (NFS) rewrite, any changes from the withdrawn 
rules that continue to be needed will be processed as a new action 
under the rewrite project.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

A. Background

    NASA published three proposed rules to make changes to the NASA 
Federal Acquisition Supplement (NFS). Public comments were received on 
all three rules. However, circumstances at the time prevented NASA from 
issuing final rules. The purpose of this Notice is to advise that the 
proposed rules are cancelled without further action. At this time, NASA 
is in process of a major NFS rewrite, and any changes proposed under 
the cancelled rules, that are still required, will be included in new 
proposed rules related to the NFS rewrite.
    The first cancelled proposed rule is identified by RIN 2700-AD38, 
Personal Identity Verification. It was published in the Federal 
Register at 73 FR 45679-45680. The second cancelled proposed rule is 
identified by RIN 2700-AD43, Release and Handling of Restricted 
Information. It was published in the Federal Register at 75 FR 9860-
9864. This proposed rule was also listed in the Regulatory Agenda as 
RIN 2700-AD57. The third cancelled proposed rule is identified by RIN 
2700-AD49, Protection of the Florida Manatee. It was published in the 
Federal Register at 73 FR 63420-63421.
