The Agency conducted a comprehensive human health risk assessment and determined that there are potential risks of concern for occupational handlers, as well as spray drift concerns for bystanders. The occupational risks can be mitigated through modifications to the cyanamide label, and spray drift concerns are addressed by a distance restriction for bystanders. The Agency also conducted an ecological risk assessment and determined that there are potential risks of concern for terrestrial animals, but current use practices and label mitigation address many of these concerns. In this Interim Registration Review Decision, EPA is making no human health or environmental safety findings associated with the EDSP screening of cyanamide or risks to pollinators, nor is it making a complete endangered species finding. The Agency’s final registration review decision is dependent upon the assessment of risks to threatened and endangered species, and to pollinators, and of potential endocrine disruptor risk. 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 alpha-chlorohydrin and hydrogen cyanamide in light of the FIFRA standard for registration. The Interim Decision documents in the docket for these pesticides describe the Agency’s rationale for issuing the interim decisions. In addition to the interim registration review decision documents, the registration review dockets for alphachlorohydrin and hydrogen cyanamide include other relevant documents related to the registration review of these pesticides. The proposed interim registration review decisions were posted to the docket and the public was invited to submit any comments or new information. EPA addressed the comments or information received during the comment period in the discussions for alpha-chlorohydrin and hydrogen cyanamide. During the 60–day comment period, the public comments received for both pesticides did not affect the Agency’s interim decisions. Pursuant to 40 CFR 155.58(c), the registration review case dockets for alpha-chlorohydrin and hydrogen cyanamide will remain open until all actions required in the interim decision have been completed.

A Final Work Plan was placed in the docket following public comment on the Preliminary Work Plan. The documents in the dockets describe EPA’s rationales for conducting additional risk assessments for the PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 registration review of the pesticides included in the tables in Unit II, as well as the Agency’s subsequent risk findings and consideration of possible risk mitigation measures.

Following public comment, the Agency will issue interim or final registration review decisions for the pesticides listed in the tables in Unit II. The registration review program is being conducted under congressionally mandated time frames, and EPA recognizes the need both to make timely decisions and to involve the public. Section 3(g) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) (7 U.S.C. 136a(g)) required EPA to establish by regulation procedures for 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 tables in Unit II. 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 may provide a ‘‘Response to Comments Memorandum’’ in the docket. The interim registration review decision will explain the effect that any comments had on the interim decision and provide the Agency’s response to significant comments.

    The registration review docket for a pesticide includes earlier 
documents related to the registration review case, except for Bacillus 
thuringiensis, whose docket is now opening. For example, the review 
opened with a Summary Document, containing a Preliminary Work Plan, for 
public comment. A Final Work Plan was placed in the docket following 
public comment on the Preliminary Work Plan.
    The documents in the dockets describe EPA's rationales for 
conducting additional risk assessments for the registration review of 
the pesticides included in the tables in Unit II, as well as the 
Agency's subsequent risk findings and consideration of possible risk 
mitigation measures. These proposed interim registration review 
decisions are

[[Page 45479]]

supported by the rationales included in those documents.
    Following public comment, the Agency will issue interim or final 
registration review decisions for the pesticides listed in the tables 
in Unit II.
    The registration review program is being conducted under 
congressionally mandated time frames, and EPA recognizes the need both 
to make timely decisions and to involve the public. Section 3(g) of the 
Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) (7 U.S.C. 
136a(g)) required EPA to establish by regulation procedures for 
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 tables in 
Unit II. 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 may provide a ``Response to Comments Memorandum'' in 
the docket. The interim registration review decision will explain the 
effect that any comments had on the interim decision and provide the 
Agency's response to significant comments.
