Such comments and input could address, among other things, the Agency’s risk assessment PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 methodologies and assumptions, as applied to a draft risk assessment. The Agency will consider all comments received during the public comment period and make changes, as appropriate, to a draft human health and/or ecological risk assessment. EPA E:\FR\FM\25MYN1.SGM 25MYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 100 / Thursday, May 25, 2017 / Notices may then issue a revised risk assessment, explain any changes to the draft risk assessment, and respond to comments. In the Federal Register notice announcing the availability of the revised risk assessment, if the revised risk assessment indicates risks of concern, the Agency may provide a comment period for the public to submit suggestions for mitigating the risk identified in the revised risk assessment before developing a proposed registration review decision on the pesticides identified above. As directed by FIFRA section 3(g), EPA is also reviewing the pesticide registration for TCVP to ensure that it continues to satisfy the FIFRA standard for registration—that is, that TCVP can still be used without unreasonable adverse effects on human health or the environment. TCVP is an organophosphate (OP) insecticide used to control fleas, ticks, flies, lice, and insect larvae on livestock and domestic animals and their premises. TCVP is also applied as a perimeter treatment. TCVP is formulated into dusts, pet collars, emulsifiable concentrates, feed additives (solid and liquid), feed blocks, wettable powders, pellets and granular products. This Federal Register notice is announcing that the EPA has published the final registration review TCVP occupational and residential exposure risk assessment for all TCVP uses. The final TCVP registration review occupational and residential exposure risk assessment incorporates several changes, including a reduction of the oral toxicological point of departure (POD) from 8.0 milligram/kilogram/day (mg/kg/day) to 2.8 mg/kg/day; the use of human research data (Davis, M. et al.,) ‘‘Assessing Intermittent Pesticide Exposure from Flea Control Collars Containing the Organophosphorus Insecticide Tetrachlorvinphos’’ to assess residential post-application exposure; and an approach to account for the potential release of TCVP from pet collar products as a liquid and solid form concurrently. In addition to the final occupational and residential exposure assessment, the registration review docket for TCVP also includes other relevant documents related to the registration review of this case. The preliminary registration review assessments were previously posted to the published in the Federal Register of January 20, 2016 for a 60-day comment period, during which time the public was invited to submit comments or new information. During the 60-day comment period, comments were received from Bayer HealthCare (Bayer), The Hartz Mountain VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:04 May 24, 2017 Jkt 241001 Corporation (Hartz), the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and the general public. The EPA’s response to comments on the registration review preliminary risk assessments can be assessed in the TCVP docket (EPA–HQ–OPP–2008– 0316) at www.regulations.gov. In compliance with EPA’s rule for protection of human subjects, specifically 40 CFR 26.1706(d), EPA is hereby publishing its full explanation of the Agency’s decision to rely on data from human research ‘‘Assessing Intermittent Pesticide Exposure From Flea Control Collars Containing the Organophosphorus Insecticide Tetrachlorvinphos (TCVP) by M. Keith Davis, J. Scott Boone, John E. Moran, John W. Tyler and Janice E. Chambers) on TCVP exposure from pet collars. Relying on this data is crucial to EPA’s decision that more stringent regulatory restrictions are necessary to protect public health than could be justified without the data. EPA’s full explanation can be found at regulations.gov in docket number EPA–HQ–OPP–2008– 0316, and on OPP’s Web page at https:// www.epa.gov/ingredients-usedpesticide-products/use-tetrachlorvinfosexposure-data-human-research. 1.

    Pursuant to 40 CFR 155.53(c), EPA is providing an opportunity, 
through this notice of availability, for interested parties to provide 
comments and input concerning the Agency's draft human health and 
ecological risk assessments for the registration review of bromacil, 
cyprodinil, and propamocarb; the draft human health risk assessment for 
cyphenothrin; and the draft ecological risk assessment for the 
registration review of 2, 4-D. Such comments and input could address, 
among other things, the Agency's risk assessment methodologies and 
assumptions, as applied to a draft risk assessment. The Agency will 
consider all comments received during the public comment period and 
make changes, as appropriate, to a draft human health and/or ecological 
risk assessment. EPA

may then issue a revised risk assessment, explain any changes to the 
draft risk assessment, and respond to comments. In the Federal Register 
notice announcing the availability of the revised risk assessment, if 
the revised risk assessment indicates risks of concern, the Agency may 
provide a comment period for the public to submit suggestions for 
mitigating the risk identified in the revised risk assessment before 
developing a proposed registration review decision on the pesticides 
identified above.
    As directed by FIFRA section 3(g), EPA is also reviewing the 
pesticide registration for TCVP to ensure that it continues to satisfy 
the FIFRA standard for registration--that is, that TCVP can still be 
used without unreasonable adverse effects on human health or the 
environment. TCVP is an organophosphate (OP) insecticide used to 
control fleas, ticks, flies, lice, and insect larvae on livestock and 
domestic animals and their premises. TCVP is also applied as a 
perimeter treatment. TCVP is formulated into dusts, pet collars, 
emulsifiable concentrates, feed additives (solid and liquid), feed 
blocks, wettable powders, pellets and granular products. This Federal 
Register notice is announcing that the EPA has published the final 
registration review TCVP occupational and residential exposure risk 
assessment for all TCVP uses.
    The final TCVP registration review occupational and residential 
exposure risk assessment incorporates several changes, including a 
reduction of the oral toxicological point of departure (POD) from 8.0 
milligram/kilogram/day (mg/kg/day) to 2.8 mg/kg/day; the use of human 
research data (Davis, M. et al.,) ``Assessing Intermittent Pesticide 
Exposure from Flea Control Collars Containing the Organophosphorus 
Insecticide Tetrachlorvinphos'' to assess residential post-application 
exposure; and an approach to account for the potential release of TCVP 
from pet collar products as a liquid and solid form concurrently.
    In addition to the final occupational and residential exposure 
assessment, the registration review docket for TCVP also includes other 
relevant documents related to the registration review of this case. The 
preliminary registration review assessments were previously posted to 
the published in the Federal Register of January 20, 2016 for a 60-day 
comment period, during which time the public was invited to submit 
comments or new information.
    During the 60-day comment period, comments were received from Bayer 
HealthCare (Bayer), The Hartz Mountain Corporation (Hartz), the Center 
for Biological Diversity (CBD), United States Department of Agriculture 
(USDA), Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and the general 
public. The EPA's response to comments on the registration review 
preliminary risk assessments can be assessed in the TCVP docket (EPA-
HQ-OPP-2008-0316) at www.regulations.gov.
    In compliance with EPA's rule for protection of human subjects, 
specifically 40 CFR 26.1706(d), EPA is hereby publishing its full 
explanation of the Agency's decision to rely on data from human 
research ``Assessing Intermittent Pesticide Exposure From Flea Control 
Collars Containing the Organophosphorus Insecticide Tetrachlorvinphos 
(TCVP) by M. Keith Davis, J. Scott Boone, John E. Moran, John W. Tyler 
and Janice E. Chambers) on TCVP exposure from pet collars. Relying on 
this data is crucial to EPA's decision that more stringent regulatory 
restrictions are necessary to protect public health than could be 
justified without the data. EPA's full explanation can be found at 
regulations.gov in docket number EPA-HQ-OPP-2008-0316, and on OPP's Web 
page at https://www.epa.gov/ingredients-used-pesticide-products/use-tetrachlorvinfos-exposure-data-human-research.
    1. Other related information. Additional information on the 
registration review status of the chemicals listed in Tables 1 and 2 of 
Unit III, as well as information on the Agency's registration review 
program and on its implementing regulation is available at http://www.epa.gov/pesticide-reevaluation.
    2. Information submission requirements. Anyone may submit data or 
information in response to this document. To be considered during a 
pesticide's registration review, the submitted data or information must 
meet the following requirements:
     To ensure that EPA will consider data or information 
submitted, interested persons must submit the data or information 
during the comment period. The Agency may, at its discretion, consider 
data or information submitted at a later date.
     The data or information submitted must be presented in a 
legible and useable form. For example, an English translation must 
accompany any material that is not in English and a written transcript 
must accompany any information submitted as an audiographic or 
videographic record. Written material may be submitted in paper or 
electronic form.
     Submitters must clearly identify the source of any 
submitted data or information.
     Submitters may request the Agency to reconsider data or 
information that the Agency rejected in a previous review. However, 
submitters must explain why they believe the Agency should reconsider 
the data or information in the pesticide's registration review.
    As provided in 40 CFR 155.58, the registration review docket for 
each pesticide case will remain publicly accessible through the 
duration of the registration review process; that is, until all actions 
required in the final decision on the registration review case have 
been completed.
