Download as PDF 3420 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 11 / Wednesday, January 16, 2013 / Notices of WDL versus the current pesticide product labeling. As considered by EPA, WDL would make available via the Internet site- and state-specific use directions for pesticide products as downloadable electronic files. To access this labeling, a user would visit the Web site identified on the pesticide label, enter information identifying the product, and select the intended state and use site. The Web site would return a streamlined version of the pesticide labeling containing the language applicable to all uses of the product, such as hazard statement and first aid, and the relevant state/site specific directions for use (e.g., application to cranberries in Maine). Sufficient labeling for the correct use of the product would still be available with the pesticide either on the container label or in accompanying material. B. Overview of PR Notice III. Do PR notices contain binding requirements? mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with The PR Notice discussed in this notice is intended to provide guidance to EPA personnel and decisionmakers and to pesticide registrants. While the requirements in the statutes and Agency regulations are binding on EPA and the applicants, this PR Notice is not binding on either EPA or pesticide registrants, and EPA may depart from the guidance where circumstances warrant and without prior notice. Likewise, pesticide registrants may assert that the guidance is not appropriate generally or not applicable to a specific pesticide or situation.
