There are no food/feed uses and, it is exempt from a tolerance requirement when used as a sticker agent in packaging of insect control products used on food crops. Polybutene is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as an indirect food additive and is used as an ingredient in cosmetic products that are applied directly to the skin such as sun block or moisturizer, and that may be incidentally ingested, such as lipstick. EPA conducted a qualitative assessment for both human health and ecological risks. No risks of concern were identified in the human health risk assessment. The ecological risk assessment indicated that there was no reasonable expectation for any registered use of polybutene to cause direct or indirect adverse effects to threatened and endangered species. A ‘‘no effect’’ determination was made for all federally listed species and designated critical habitat. Pursuant to FFDCA section 408(p)(4), EPA has exempted polybutene from the requirements of the EDSP in an Administrative Order (AO) entitled ‘‘Exemption of Polybutene from the Requirements of the Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program’’ which is available in the registration review docket. Undecylenic acid (Registration Review Decision). EPA has completed a registration review decision for undecylenic acid (UDA). The registration review docket for UDA (EPA–HQ–OPP–2011–0910) opened in December 2011. EPA issued the proposed decision for UDA on June 4, 2014 and took comment for 60 days. The Agency received one comment from the Center for Biological Diversity, which supported the proposed registration review decision. UDA is registered as an insecticide and miticide in pet shampoos and spray products in combination with dioctyl sodium sulfosuccinate (DSS). As a pesticidal active ingredient, there are no food uses and, thus, no tolerances are established. UDA is approved by the FDA as an active ingredient in over the counter anti-fungal products, and it is also used as a flavoring agent. EPA has conducted a qualitative assessment for both human health and ecological risks, including listed species for UDA. The human health risk assessment did not identify any risks of concern for UDA. The ecological risk assessment made a ‘‘no effect’’ determination for federally listed species and designated critical habitat. Pursuant to FFDCA section 408(p)(4), EPA has exempted UDA from the requirements of the EDSP in an AO VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:41 Sep 23, 2014 Jkt 232001 entitled ‘‘Exemption of Dioctyl Sodium Sulfosuccinate (DSS) and Undecylenic Acid (UDA) from the Requirements of the Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program’’ which is available in the registration review docket. Pursuant to 40 CFR 155.57, a registration review decision is the Agency’s determination whether a pesticide meets, or does not meet, the standard for registration in FIFRA. EPA has considered Ancymidol, DEET, Denatonium Saccharide, Dioctyl Sodium Sulfosuccinate, Metofluthrin, Polybutene Resins, and Undecylenic Acid in light of the FIFRA standard for registration. The Ancymidol, DEET, Denatonium Saccharide, Dioctyl Sodium Sulfosuccinate, Metofluthrin, Polybutene Resins, and Undecylenic Acid Final or Interim Decision documents in the respective dockets describe the Agency’s rationale for issuing a registration review final or interim decision for these pesticides. Pursuant to 40 CFR 155.58(c), the registration review case docket for Ancymidol, DEET, Denatonium Saccharide, Dioctyl Sodium Sulfosuccinate, Metofluthrin, Polybutene Resins, and Undecylenic Acid will remain open until all actions required in the final decision have been completed.

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. Authority EPA is initiating its reviews of the pesticides identified in this document pursuant to section 3(g) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) and the Procedural Regulations for Registration Review at 40 CFR part 155, subpart C. Section 3(g) of FIFRA provides, among other things, that the registrations of pesticides are to be reviewed every 15 years. Under FIFRA, a pesticide product may be registered or remain registered only if it meets the statutory standard for registration given in FIFRA section 3(c)(5). When used in accordance with widespread and commonly recognized practice, the pesticide product must perform its intended function without unreasonable adverse effects on the environment; that is, without any unreasonable risk to man or the environment, or a human dietary risk from residues that result from the use of a pesticide in or on food. III. Registration Reviews A. What action is the Agency taking? As directed by FIFRA section 3(g), EPA is reviewing the pesticide registrations identified in the table in this unit to assure that they continue to satisfy the FIFRA standard for registration—that is, they can still be used without unreasonable adverse effects on human health or the environment. A pesticide’s registration review begins when the Agency establishes a docket for the pesticide’s registration review case and opens the docket for public review and comment.

Registration Review; Pesticide Dockets Opened for Review and 
Comment

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: 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 registration 
review case closures for 3 H-1,2 Dithiol-3-one,4,5,-dichloro- (RHY-86) 
(case 5033) and tepraloxydim (case 7257). In addition, this document 
announces the Agency's intent not to open registration review cases for 
mepanipyrim (case 7042) and vinclozolin (case 2740) because there are 
no longer any active registrations containing either of these 
chemicals. The two case closures and the Agency's intent not to open 
two registration review cases being announced herein are not open for 
public comment.

    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 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. Authority

    EPA is initiating its reviews of the pesticides identified in this 
document pursuant to section 3(g) of the Federal Insecticide, 
Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) and the Procedural Regulations 
for Registration Review at 40 CFR part 155, subpart C. Section 3(g) of 
FIFRA provides, among other things, that the registrations of 
pesticides are to be reviewed every 15 years. Under FIFRA, a pesticide 
product may be registered or remain registered only if it meets the 
statutory standard for registration given in FIFRA section 3(c)(5). 
When used in accordance with widespread and commonly recognized 
practice, the pesticide product must perform its intended function 
without unreasonable adverse effects on the environment; that is, 
without any unreasonable risk to man or the environment, or a human 
dietary risk from residues that result from the use of a pesticide in 
or on food.

III. Registration Reviews

 A. What action is the Agency taking?

    As directed by FIFRA section 3(g), EPA is reviewing the pesticide 
registrations identified in the table in this unit to assure that they 
continue to satisfy the FIFRA standard for registration--that is, they 
can still be used without unreasonable adverse effects on human health 
or the environment. A pesticide's registration review begins when the 
Agency establishes a docket for the pesticide's registration review 
case and opens the docket for public review and comment. At present, 
EPA is opening registration review dockets for the cases identified in 
the following table.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This notice also announces two case closures and the Agency's 
intent not to open a registration review case for two additional 
chemicals. The registration review case for 3 H-1,2 Dithiol-3-one,4,5-
dichloro- (RYH-86) (case 5033) is being closed for non-payment of 
maintenance fees for the last two remaining registrations. The 
tepraloxydim (case 7257) registration review case is being closed 
because the last products were canceled in the Federal Register notice 
on August 6, 2014 (79 FR 45798) (FRL-9914-09). The ``Notice of 
Registration Review Case Closure for Tepraloxydim'' is available in the 
docket EPA-HQ-OPP-2014-0246 at http://www.regulations.gov. The Agency 
intends not to open registration review cases for vinclozolin (case 
2740) and mepanipyrim (case 7042) because there are no longer any 
products registered containing these active ingredients. The 
cancellation order for the last vinclozolin registrations was issued in 
the Federal Register notice on August 13, 2014 (79 FR 47454) (FRL-9914-
00). There are no longer any products registered containing 
mepanipyrim. The two cases closures and the Agency's intent not to open 
two registration review cases being announced herein are not open for 
public comment.

B. Docket Content

    1. Review dockets. The registration review dockets contain 
information that the Agency may consider in the course of the 
registration review. The Agency may include information from its files 
including, but not limited to, the following information:
     An overview of the registration review case status.
     A list of current product registrations and registrants.
     Federal Register notices regarding any pending 
registration actions.
     Federal Register notices regarding current or pending 
tolerances.
     Risk assessments.
     Bibliographies concerning current registrations.
     Summaries of incident data.
     Any other pertinent data or information.
    Each docket contains a document summarizing what the Agency 
currently knows about the pesticide case and a preliminary work plan 
for anticipated data and assessment needs. Additional documents provide 
more detailed information. During this public comment period, the 
Agency is asking that interested persons identify any additional 
information they believe the Agency should consider during the 
registration reviews of these pesticides. The Agency identifies in each 
docket the areas where public comment is specifically requested, though 
comment in any area is welcome.
    2. Other related information. More information on these cases, 
including the active ingredients for each case, may be located in the 
registration review schedule on the Agency's Web site at http://
www.epa.gov/oppsrrd1/registrationreview/schedule.htm. 
Information on the Agency's registration review program and its 
implementing regulation may be seen at http://www.epa.gov/oppsrrd1/
registrationreview.
    3. Information submission requirements. Anyone may submit data or 
information in response to this document. To be considered during a 
pesticide's registration review, the submitted data or information must 
meet the following requirements:
     To ensure that EPA will consider data or information 
submitted, interested persons must submit the data or information 
during the comment period. The Agency may, at its discretion, consider 
data or information submitted at a later date.
     The data or information submitted must be presented in a 
legible and useable form. For example, an English translation must 
accompany any material that is not in English and a written transcript 
must accompany any information submitted as an audiographic or 
videographic record. Written material may be submitted in paper or 
electronic form.
     Submitters must clearly identify the source of any 
submitted data or information.
     Submitters may request the Agency to reconsider data or 
information that the Agency rejected in a previous review. However, 
submitters must explain why they believe the Agency

[[Page 57095]]

should reconsider the data or information in the pesticide's 
registration review.
    As provided in 40 CFR 155.58, the registration review docket for 
each pesticide case will remain publicly accessible through the 
duration of the registration review process; that is, until all actions 
required in the final decision on the registration review case have 
been completed.
