Interregional Research Project Number 4 (IR–4), requests to establish tolerances in 40 CFR part 180 for residues of the herbicide, clomazone, including its metabolites and degradates, determined by measuring only clomazone, 2-[(2chlorophenyl)methyl]-4,4-dimethyl-3isoxazolidinone, in or on Brassica, head and stem, subgroup 5A at 0.10 ppm; rhubarb at 0.30 ppm; pea, southern, succulent, seed at 0.05 ppm; pea, VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:05 Feb 26, 2013 Jkt 229001 southern, dry seed at 0.05 ppm; and pea, southern, hay at 0.05 ppm. There is a practical analytical method for detecting and measuring levels of clomazone in or on raw agricultural commodities with a limit of detection that allows monitoring of food for residues at or above the levels proposed in this tolerance. Samples are analyzed using an analytical method consisting of an acid reflux, a C18 solid phase extraction (SPE), a Florisil SPE clean-up followed by gas chromatography (GC)-mass selective detection (MSD).

Interregional Research Project Number 4 (IR–4), requests to establish tolerances in 40 CFR part 180 for residues of the insecticide, acetamiprid, (1E)-N-[(6-chloro-3-pyridinyl)methyl]N′-cyano-N-methylethanimidamide, including its metabolites and degradates, in or on corn, sweet, kernel plus cob with husks removed at 0.01 ppm; corn, sweet, forage at 15 ppm; and corn, sweet, stover at 30 ppm. Based upon the metabolism of acetamiprid in plants and the toxicology of the parent and metabolites, quantification of the parent acetamiprid is sufficient to determine residues of concern for enforcement purposes. As a result a method was developed that involves extraction of acetamiprid from crop matrices with a solvent followed by a decantation and filtration and finally analysis by a Liquid Chromotagraphy with tandem Mass Spectrometry (LC/ MS/MS) method. Contact: Andrew Ertman, (703) 308–9367, email address: ertman.andrew@epa.gov. 4. PP 2F8088. (EPA–HQ–OPP–2013– 0038).

Contact: Erik Kraft, (703) 308–9358, email address: kraft.erik@epa.gov. 7. PP 2F8135. (EPA–HQ–OPP–2013– 0051). Syngenta Crop Protection LLC., P.O. Box 18300, Greensboro, NC 27419– 8300, requests to establish a tolerance in 40 CFR part 180 for residues of the fungicide propiconazole, 1-[[2-(2,4dichlorophenyl)-4-propyl-1,3-dioxolan2-yl] methyl]-1H-1,2,4-triazole and its metabolites determined as 2,4,dichlorobenzoic acid and expressed as parent compound, in or on rapeseed, subgroup 20A at 0.3 ppm. The metabolism data in plants and animals suggest that analytical methods to detect either the phenyl or the triazole ring would be appropriate for the measurement of residues. However, because of the natural occurrence of E:\FR\FM\27FEP1.SGM 27FEP1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 39 / Wednesday, February 27, 2013 / Proposed Rules erowe on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS-1 compounds that interfere with the measurement of triazoles, methods designed to detect this moiety have been proven unreliable and unacceptable. Conversely, conversion of phenyl moiety to 2,4-dichlorobenzoic acid (DCBA) has proven to be satisfactory for all agricultural products analyzed to date. Analytical methods AG–626 and AG–454A were developed for the determination of residues of propiconazole and its metabolites containing the DCBA moiety. Analytical method AG–626 has been accepted and published by EPA as the tolerance enforcement method for crops. Contact: Erin Malone, (703) 347–0253, email address: malone.erin@epa.gov. 8. PP 2F8139.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On September 28, 1998, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT or the Department) issued final regulations, in response to the ADA (Pub. L. 101–336, 104 Stat. 327, 42 U.S.C. 225 and 611), which required the accessibility of new over-the-road buses (OTRBs) and accessible OTRB service. An OTRB is defined as ‘‘a bus characterized by an elevated passenger deck located over a baggage compartment.’’ 49 CFR 37.3. The regulations require commercial OTRB operators to ensure that passengers with disabilities have access to OTRB transportation. The DOT is required by 49 CFR 37.215 to review various requirements within the ADA regulations for OTRB operators. These requirements include the following: the purchase and lease requirements of new OTRBs by operators of fixed-route systems (§ 37.183), the fleet accessibility requirements for OTRB fixed-route systems of large operators (§ 37.185), the interline service requirements (§ 37.187), the service requirement for OTRB demand-responsive systems (§ 37.189), the special provision for small mixed-service operators (§ 37.191), and the interim service requirements for fixed-route operators (§ 37.193(a)). We are not reviewing any other requirements in the ADA regulations for OTRB operators at this time. As part of this review, DOT is required to consider certain factors, including the percentage of accessible OTRBs in the fleets of OTRB operators, the success of such operators at meeting the requests of passengers with disabilities for accessible OTRBs in a timely manner, ridership of OTRBs by passengers with disabilities, volume of complaints by passengers with disabilities, and the cost and service impacts of these requirements. After the review, DOT will decide whether it is appropriate to revise the part 37 ADA regulations for OTRB operators or retain the current regulations without change. PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 The DOT will publish a notice, after the review is complete, that announces our decision and our justification. To this end, DOT requests comments and information so the Department can better review such ADA regulations and make an informed decision on whether to initiate a rulemaking to propose revisions to any of the regulations involving OTRBs and, if so, how to develop a notice of proposed rulemaking. Specifically, comments about OTRB fleet accessibility, fulfillment of accessible OTRB service requests, and ridership and volume of complaints by passengers with disabilities, would be helpful. The DOT welcomes comments from the public, including OTRB operators and individuals with disabilities, on any aspect of this notice. The Department is particularly interested in comments from OTRB operators, both large and small, on the following: 1. The accessibility of your OTRB fleet. How many OTRBs do you own? Of the OTRBs that you own, how many are accessible? How many OTRBs are termleased longer than 30 days? Of the OTRBs that are term-leased, how many are accessible? Have you been successful at meeting the requests of passengers with disabilities for accessible OTRBs in a timely manner, and what challenges continue to exist in meeting these requests? 2. Accessibility arrangements. If your company does not own or lease an accessible OTRB, what arrangements have you made to meet the requirements to provide accessible transportation? For example, has your company made arrangements with another company that operates an accessible OTRB to provide accessible OTRB service on behalf of your company when a 48-hour advance notice request for accessible OTRB service is received? 3. Received requests. Within the previous 12 months, have you received any of the following inquiries, requests, or complaints, and, if so, how many? • Inquiries regarding whether your company owns or leases an accessible OTRB, • Inquiries regarding whether your company can provide accessible OTRB service, • Requests for accessible OTRB service that were received with a minimum of 48-hour advance notice and satisfied according to the requested provisions, • Number of passengers with disabilities who have used your company’s accessible OTRB service, and • Complaints regarding denial of accessible OTRB service to an individual with a disability.

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 email. 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

    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 pesticides 
discussed in this document, compared to the general population.

II. What action is the Agency taking?

    EPA is announcing its receipt of several pesticide petitions filed 
under section 408 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), 
(21 U.S.C. 346a), requesting the establishment or modification of 
regulations in 40 CFR part 180 for residues of pesticide chemicals in 
or on various food commodities. The Agency is taking public comment on 
the requests before responding to the petitioners. EPA is not proposing 
any particular action at this time. EPA has determined that the 
pesticide petitions described in this document contain the data or 
information prescribed in FFDCA section 408(d)(2); however, EPA has not 
fully evaluated the sufficiency of the submitted data at this time or 
whether the data support granting of the pesticide petitions. After 
considering the public comments, EPA intends to evaluate whether and 
what action may be warranted. Additional data may be needed before EPA 
can make a final determination on these pesticide petitions.
    Pursuant to 40 CFR 180.7(f), a summary of each of the petitions 
that

[[Page 13296]]

are the subject of this document, prepared by the petitioner, is 
included in a docket EPA has created for each rulemaking. The docket 
for each of the petitions is available online at http://www.regulations.gov.
    As specified in FFDCA section 408(d)(3), (21 U.S.C. 346a(d)(3)), 
EPA is publishing notice of the petitions so that the public has an 
opportunity to comment on the requests for the establishment or 
modification of regulations for residues of pesticides in or on food 
commodities. Further information on the petitions may be obtained 
through the petition's summary referenced in this unit.

New Tolerance

    1. PP 2E8126. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2012-0980). Interregional Research 
Project Number 4 (IR-4), 500 College Road East, Suite 201W., Princeton, 
NJ 08540, requests to establish tolerances in 40 CFR part 180 for 
residues of the fungicide, mandipropamid, 4-chloro-N-[2-[3-methoxy-4-
(2-propynyloxy)phenyl]ethyl]-alpha-(2-propynyloxy)-benzeneacetamide, in 
or on basil, fresh at 30 parts per million (ppm); basil, dried at 200 
ppm; ginseng at 0.3 ppm; bean, succulent at 0.90 ppm; cowpea, forage at 
15 ppm; vegetable, fruiting, group 8-10 at 1.0 ppm; fruit, small, vine 
climbing, subgroup 13-07F, except fuzzy kiwifruit at 2.0 ppm; onion, 
bulb, subgroup 3-07A at 0.1 ppm; and onion, green, subgroup 3-07B at 
7.0 ppm. Analytical method RAM 415-01 was developed for determination 
of mandipropamid residues in crops. This method involves extraction of 
mandipropamid residues from crop samples by homogenization with 
acetonitrile: water (80:20 v/v). Extracts are centrifuged and aliquots 
diluted with water prior to being cleaned-up using polymeric solid-
phase extraction cartridges. Residues of mandipropamid are quantified 
using high performance liquid chromatography with triple quadruple mass 
spectrometric detection (HPLC-MS/MS). Contact: Laura Nollen, (703) 305-
7390, email address: nollen.laura@epa.gov.
    2. PP 2E8136. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2013-0056). Interregional Research 
Project Number 4 (IR-4), requests to establish tolerances in 40 CFR 
part 180 for residues of the herbicide, clomazone, including its 
metabolites and degradates, determined by measuring only clomazone, 2-
[(2-chlorophenyl)methyl]-4,4-dimethyl-3-isoxazolidinone, in or on 
Brassica, head and stem, subgroup 5A at 0.10 ppm; rhubarb at 0.30 ppm; 
pea, southern, succulent, seed at 0.05 ppm; pea, southern, dry seed at 
0.05 ppm; and pea, southern, hay at 0.05 ppm. There is a practical 
analytical method for detecting and measuring levels of clomazone in or 
on raw agricultural commodities with a limit of detection that allows 
monitoring of food for residues at or above the levels proposed in this 
tolerance. Samples are analyzed using an analytical method consisting 
of an acid reflux, a C18 solid phase extraction (SPE), a 
Florisil SPE clean-up followed by gas chromatography (GC)-mass 
selective detection (MSD). Contact: Sidney Jackson, (703) 305-7610, 
email address: jackson.sidney@epa.gov.
    3. PP 3E8147. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2012-0626). Interregional Research 
Project Number 4 (IR-4), requests to establish tolerances in 40 CFR 
part 180 for residues of the insecticide, acetamiprid, (1E)-N-[(6-
chloro-3-pyridinyl)methyl]-N'-cyano-N-methylethanimidamide, including 
its metabolites and degradates, in or on corn, sweet, kernel plus cob 
with husks removed at 0.01 ppm; corn, sweet, forage at 15 ppm; and 
corn, sweet, stover at 30 ppm. Based upon the metabolism of acetamiprid 
in plants and the toxicology of the parent and metabolites, 
quantification of the parent acetamiprid is sufficient to determine 
residues of concern for enforcement purposes. As a result a method was 
developed that involves extraction of acetamiprid from crop matrices 
with a solvent followed by a decantation and filtration and finally 
analysis by a Liquid Chromotagraphy with tandem Mass Spectrometry (LC/
MS/MS) method. Contact: Andrew Ertman, (703) 308-9367, email address: 
ertman.andrew@epa.gov.
    4. PP 2F8088. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2013-0038). ISK Biosciences Corporation, 
7470 Auburn Road, Suite A, Concord, OH 44077, requests to establish 
tolerances in 40 CFR part 180 for the combined residues of the 
insecticide, flonicamid, N-(cyanomethyl)-4-(trifluoromethyl)-3-
pyridinecarboxamide, and its metabolites, TFNA (4-trifluoromethyl 
nicotinic acid), TFNA-AM (4-trifluoromethylnicotinamide), and TFNG, N-
(4-trifluoro methylnicotinoyl)glycine, calculated as the stoichiometric 
equivalent of flonicamid, in or on tree, nuts, crop group 14-12 at 0.09 
ppm; almond at 0.09 ppm; pecan at 0.04 ppm; and almond, hulls at 10.0 
ppm. The residue analytical method for the majority of crops includes 
an initial extraction with acetonitrile/deionized water, followed by a 
liquid-liquid partition with ethyl acetate. The residue method for 
wheat straw is similar, except that a C18 solid phase 
extraction (SPE) is added prior to the liquid-liquid partition. The 
final sample solution is quantitated using LC equipped with a reverse 
phase column and triple quadruple mass spectrometer (MS/MS). Contact: 
Carmen Rodia, (703) 306-0327, email address: rodia.carmen@epa.gov.
    5. PP 2F8130. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2012-0576). Arysta LifeScience North 
America, LLC, 15401 Weston Parkway, Suite 150, Cary, NC 27513, requests 
to establish a tolerance in 40 CFR part 180 for residues of the 
fungicide fluoxastrobin, (1E)-[2-[[6-(2-chlorophenoxy)-5-fluoro-4-
pyrimidinyl]oxy]phenyl](5,6-dihydro-1,4,2-dioxazin-3-yl)methanone O-
methyloxime, and its Z isomer, (1Z)-[2-[[6-(2-chlorophenoxy)-5-fluoro-
4-pyrimidinyl]oxy]phenyl](5,6-dihydro-1,4,2-dioxazin-3-yl)methanone O-
methyloxime, in or on wheat, grain at 0.15 ppm. Adequate analytical 
methodology is available for enforcement purposes. The method comprises 
microwave solvent extraction followed by a solid phase extraction clean 
up and quantification by HPLC/MS/MS. The individual detector responses 
for measured E- and Z-isomers is summed to give total residue. Contact: 
Heather Garvie, (703) 308-0034, email address: garvie.heather@epa.gov.
    6. PP 2F8133. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2013-0071). BASF Corporation, 26 Davis 
Drive, Research Triangle Park, NC 27709, requests to establish a 
tolerance in 40 CFR part 180 for residues of the herbicide 
pendimethalin, N-(1-ethylpropyl)-3,4-dimethyl-2,6- dinitrobenzenamine, 
and its 3,5-dinitrobenzyl alcohol metabolite (CL202347), in or on 
almond, hulls at 6.0 ppm. In plants, the practical method for detecting 
and measuring levels of pendimethalin is aqueous organic solvent 
extraction, column clean up, and quantitation by GC. Contact: Erik 
Kraft, (703) 308-9358, email address: kraft.erik@epa.gov.
    7. PP 2F8135. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2013-0051). Syngenta Crop Protection 
LLC., P.O. Box 18300, Greensboro, NC 27419-8300, requests to establish 
a tolerance in 40 CFR part 180 for residues of the fungicide 
propiconazole, 1-[[2-(2,4-dichlorophenyl)-4-propyl-1,3-dioxolan-2-yl] 
methyl]-1H-1,2,4-triazole and its metabolites determined as 2,4,-
dichlorobenzoic acid and expressed as parent compound, in or on 
rapeseed, subgroup 20A at 0.3 ppm. The metabolism data in plants and 
animals suggest that analytical methods to detect either the phenyl or 
the triazole ring would be appropriate for the measurement of residues. 
However, because of the natural occurrence of

[[Page 13297]]

compounds that interfere with the measurement of triazoles, methods 
designed to detect this moiety have been proven unreliable and 
unacceptable. Conversely, conversion of phenyl moiety to 2,4-
dichlorobenzoic acid (DCBA) has proven to be satisfactory for all 
agricultural products analyzed to date. Analytical methods AG-626 and 
AG-454A were developed for the determination of residues of 
propiconazole and its metabolites containing the DCBA moiety. 
Analytical method AG-626 has been accepted and published by EPA as the 
tolerance enforcement method for crops. Contact: Erin Malone, (703) 
347-0253, email address: malone.erin@epa.gov.
    8. PP 2F8139. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2013-0008). BASF Corporation, requests to 
establish a tolerance in 40 CFR part 180 for residues of the herbicide, 
saflufenacil, in or on crayfish at 0.01 ppm. Compliance with the 
tolerance levels is to be determined by measuring only saflufenacil, 2-
chloro-5-[3,6-dihydro-3-methyl-2,6-dioxo-4-(trifluoromethyl)-1(2H)-
pyrimidinyl]-4-fluoro-N-[[methyl(1-
methylethyl)amino]sulfonyl]benzamide, in or on the commodities. 
Adequate enforcement methodology (LC/MS/MS) methods D0603/02 (plants) 
and L0073/01 (livestock) is available to enforce the tolerance 
expression. Contact: Bethany Benbow, (703) 347-8072, email address:

    3. PP 3E8147. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2012-0626). Interregional Research 
Project Number 4 (IR-4), requests to amend the tolerances in 40 CFR 
180.578 for residues of the insecticide acetamiprid, (1E)-N-[(6-chloro-
3-pyridinyl)methyl]- N'-cyano-N-methylethanimidamide, including its 
metabolites and degradates, by increasing the existing tolerances in 
meat, meat byproducts, and milk. Tolerances for cattle, goat, horse, 
and sheep meat are proposed at 0.30 ppm; cattle, goat, horse, and sheep 
fat at 0.20 ppm; cattle, goat, horse, and sheep meat byproducts at 0.70 
ppm; and milk at 0.30 ppm. Based upon the metabolism of acetamiprid in 
plants and the toxicology of the parent and metabolites, quantification 
of the parent acetamiprid is sufficient to determine residues of 
concern for enforcement purposes. As a result, a method was developed 
that involves extraction of acetamiprid from crop matrices with a 
solvent followed by a decantation and filtration and finally analysis 
by a LC/MS/MS method. Contact: Andrew Ertman, (703) 308-9367, email
