from April 1, 2018 to July 31, 2018.

III. What is the Agency's authority for taking this action?

notice and make one of the following specific findings:
     The chemical substance or significant new use presents an 
unreasonable risk of injury to health or the environment;
     The information available to EPA is insufficient to permit
