You may be potentially affected by this action if you are an agricultural producer, food manufacturer, or pesticide manufacturer. The following list of North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) codes is not intended to be exhaustive, but rather provides a guide to help readers determine whether this document applies to them. Potentially affected entities may include: • Crop production (NAICS code 111). • Animal production (NAICS code 112). • Food manufacturing (NAICS code 311). • Pesticide manufacturing (NAICS code 32532). 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 preparing and submitting your comments, see the commenting tips at http://www.epa.gov/dockets/ comments.html. 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, VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:04 Jun 15, 2016 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 pesticide discussed in this document, compared to the general population. Jkt 238001 Under section 18 of FIFRA, 7 U.S.C. 136p, at the discretion of the EPA Administrator, a federal or state agency may be exempted from any provision of FIFRA if the EPA Administrator determines that emergency conditions exist which require the exemption. The Idaho, Indiana, Michigan, Oregon, Washington, and Wisconsin Departments of Agriculture have requested the EPA Administrator to issue specific exemptions for the use of pyridate on mint (peppermint and spearmint) to control redroot pigweed and kochia. Information in accordance with 40 CFR part 166 was submitted as part of this request. The applicants’ submissions which provide an explanation of the need for the exemption as well as the proposed use pattern can be found at http:// www.regulations.gov in their section 18 emergency exemption application requests for use of pyridate on mint to control redroot pigweeds and kochia. This notice does not constitute a decision by EPA on the applications themselves. The regulations governing FIFRA section 18 require publication of a notice of receipt of an application for specific exemptions proposing use of a pesticide that was voluntarily canceled in 2004, and which is now considered to be unregistered under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). This notice provides an opportunity for public comment on the six applications. The Agency, will review and consider all comments received during the comment period in determining whether to issue specific exemptions requested by the Idaho, Indiana, Michigan, Oregon, Washington, and Wisconsin Departments of Agriculture.
