New Tolerance Exemptions
    1. PP 6F8444. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2016-0348). Marrone Bio Innovations, 1540 
Drew Ave., Davis, CA 95618, requests to establish an exemption from the 
requirement of a tolerance in 40 CFR part 180 for residues of the 
bactericide and fungicide Bacillus amyloliquefaciens strain F727 in or 
on all food commodities. The petitioner believes no analytical method 
is needed because when used as proposed, Bacillus amyloliquefaciens 
strain F727 would not result in residues that are of toxicological 
concern. Contact: BPPD.
    2. PP 6F8459. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2016-0259). Spring Trading Co., 203 
Dogwood Trl., Magnolia, TX 77354 (on behalf of CH Biotech R&D Co. Ltd.,

R.O.C.), requests to establish an exemption from the requirement of a 
tolerance in 40 CFR part 180 for residues of the plant regulator 1-
Triacontanol in or on raw agricultural commodity growing crops on in 
products to treat animals. The petitioner believes no analytical method 
is needed because the 10X standard safety factor is unnecessary for 1-
Triacontanol since it is a compound found in plant cuticle waxes and 
beeswax. Contact: BPPD.
    3. PP IN-10851. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2016-0378). Technology Sciences Group,
