Through this program, EPA is ensuring Lhorne on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:08 Mar 08, 2016 Jkt 238001 that each pesticide’s registration is based on current scientific and other knowledge, including its effects on human health and the environment. EPA may pursue mitigation at any time during the registration review process if it finds that a pesticide poses unreasonable adverse effects to human health or the environment. Based on the number and severity of paraquat human health incidents, the EPA believes that the mitigation measures outlined in this proposed interim mitigation decision are necessary to address identified human health risk concerns. Comments must be received on or before May 9, 2016. DATES: Submit your comments, identified by docket identification (ID) number EPA–HQ–OPP–2011–0855, by one of the following methods: • Federal eRulemaking Portal: http:// www.regulations.gov.

Pursuant to 40 CFR 155.58, this notice announces the availability of EPA’s proposed interim mitigation decision for paraquat, and opens a 60-day public comment period on the proposed interim mitigation decision. Paraquat is a widely used broad spectrum herbicide for the control of weeds in many agricultural and non-agricultural settings, and is also used as a defoliant on crops, prior to harvest. It is classified as restricted use due to high toxicity. An estimated 1.5 tsp can be lethal if ingested and there is no known antidote. Paraquat dichloride is associated with a disproportionately high number of incidents including accidental ingestions typically leading to fatalities as well as occupational spills, splashes, and leaks resulting in E:\FR\FM\09MRN1.SGM 09MRN1
