Registration Review; Pesticide Dockets Opened for Review and Comment and Other Docket Acts
Document Number: 2013-07076
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-03-27
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
With this document, EPA is opening the public comment period for several 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 registration review dockets for iodomethane or ethametsulfuron-methyl. Iodomethane and ethametsulfuron-methyl are undergoing phase-outs of all U.S. pesticide registrations. The cancellations of the iodomethane end use registrations became effective on December 31, 2012, and the cancellation of the sole technical product registration will become effective on December 1, 2015. The cancellations of all ethametsulfuron-methyl product registrations became effective on February 20, 2013. Therefore, iodomethane and ethametsulfuron-methyl are not scheduled for review under the registration review program. This document also announces the registration review case closures for the pesticides alkyl amine hydrochloride (case 3051) and halofenozide (case 7425), and the availability of their respective Case Closure Documents. The cancellation of all alkyl amine hydrochloride registrations became effective on October 17, 2012. The cancellation of all U.S. halofenozide registrations became effective December 21, 2012. These case closure are being announced herein with no comment period.
Organic Arsenicals; Amendments to Terminate Uses; Amendment to Existing Stocks Provisions
Document Number: 2013-07074
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-03-27
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
EPA issued a document in the Federal Register of September 30, 2009 (74 FR 50187) (FRL-8437-7) concerning the cancellations and amendments of pesticide products containing organic arsenicals. A portion of the voluntary cancellation request giving rise to the 2009 document was conditioned upon the convening of a public scientific peer review process that would address the mode of action for carcinogenic effects of inorganic arsenic. Because the peer review process has not yet occurred, the cancellations of the sod farm, golf course, and highway rights-of-way uses identified in the 2009 document were improperly finalized, and the existing stocks provisions for all remaining products containing the organic arsenical monosodium methanearsonate (MSMA) will be corrected as noted in Unit II. of this document. In addition, this document clarifies that existing stocks of products already in the hands of users as of December 31, 2010, containing MSMA labeled for all uses, except cotton, sod farms, golf courses, and highway rights-of-way and products containing disodium methanearsonate (DSMA), calcium acid methanearsonate (CAMA), and cacodylic acid and its sodium salt, can be used legally until they are exhausted, provided that such use complies with the EPA-approved label and labeling accompanying the affected product.
