Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 247 / Wednesday, December 24, 2014 / Notices reviewing pesticide registrations, originally with a goal of reviewing each pesticide’s registration every 15 years to ensure that a pesticide continues to meet the FIFRA standard for registration. The Agency’s final rule to implement this program was issued in August 2006 and became effective in October 2006, and appears at 40 CFR part 155, subpart C. The Pesticide Registration Improvement Act of 2003 (PRIA) was amended and extended in September 2007. FIFRA, as amended by PRIA in 2007, requires EPA to complete registration review decisions by October 1, 2022, for all pesticides registered as of October 1, 2007. The registration review final rule at 40 CFR 155.58(a) provides for a minimum 60-day public comment period on all proposed interim registration review decisions. This comment period is intended to provide an opportunity for public input and a mechanism for initiating any necessary amendments to the proposed interim decision. All comments should be submitted using the methods in ADDRESSES, and must be received by EPA on or before the closing date. These comments will become part of the docket for the pesticides included in the table in Unit II.A. Comments received after the close of the comment period will be marked ‘‘late.’’ EPA is not required to consider these late comments. The Agency will carefully consider all comments received by the closing date and will provide a ‘‘Response to Comments Memorandum’’ in the docket as appropriate. The final registration review decision will explain the effect that any comments had on the decision. Background on the registration review program is provided at: http://www2. epa.gov/pesticide-reevaluation. Information regarding earlier documents related to the registration review of these pesticides can be found at: http:// www2.epa.gov/pesticide-reevaluation/ individual-pesticides-registrationreview. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Authority: 7 U.S.C. 136 et seq.

II. Authority

    EPA is conducting its registration reviews of bentazon, daminozide, 
and d-limonene 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) (7 
U.S.C. 136a(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

    As directed by FIFRA section 3(g), EPA is reviewing the pesticide 
registrations for bentazon, daminozide, and d-limonene to ensure that 
they continue to satisfy the FIFRA standard for registration--that is, 
these pesticides can still be used without unreasonable adverse effects 
on human health or the environment. Information on the type of 
pesticide, target pests and uses sites can be found below for each 
case. EPA has completed draft human health and/or ecological risk 
assessments for all bentazon, daminozide, and d-limonene uses.

risk assessment methodologies and assumptions, as applied to these 
draft risk assessments. The Agency will consider all comments received 
during the public comment period and make changes, as appropriate, to 
the draft human health and ecological risk assessments. EPA will then, 
as needed, issue revised risk assessments, explain any changes to the 
draft risk assessments, and respond to the comments. In the Federal 
Register notice announcing the availability of the revised risk 
assessments, if a revised risk assessment indicates risks of concern, 
the Agency may provide a comment period for the public to submit 
suggestions for mitigating the risks identified in the revised risk 
assessment before developing a proposed registration review decision.
