Under this authority, we control the hunting of migratory game birds through regulations in 50 CFR part 20. On January 1, 1991, we banned lead shot for hunting waterfowl and coots in the United States. Regulations at 50 CFR 20.134 outline the application and approval process for new types of nontoxic shot. When considering approval of a candidate material as nontoxic, we must ensure that it is not hazardous in the environment and that secondary exposure (ingestion of spent shot or its components) is not a hazard to migratory birds. To make that decision, we require each applicant to provide information about the solubility and toxicity of the candidate material. Additionally, for law enforcement purposes, a noninvasive field detection device must be available to distinguish candidate shot from lead shot. This information constitutes the bulk of an application for approval of nontoxic shot. The Director uses the data in the application to decide whether or not to approve a material as nontoxic.

    The Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA) (16 U.S.C. 703 et seq.)

migratory game birds through regulations in 50 CFR part 20. On January 
1, 1991, we banned lead shot for hunting waterfowl and coots in the 
United States.
    Regulations at 50 CFR 20.134 outline the application and approval 
process for new types of nontoxic shot. When considering approval of a 
candidate material as nontoxic, we must ensure that it is not hazardous 
in the environment and that secondary exposure (ingestion of spent shot 
or its components) is not a hazard to migratory birds. To make that 
decision, we require each applicant to provide information about the

law enforcement purposes, a noninvasive field detection device must be 
available to distinguish candidate shot from lead shot. This 
information constitutes the bulk of an application for approval of
