II. Registration Review

    Registration review is EPA's periodic review of pesticide 
registrations to ensure that each pesticide continues to satisfy the 
statutory standard for registration, that is, the pesticide can perform 
its intended function without unreasonable adverse effects on human 
health or the environment. As part of the registration review process, 
the Agency has completed interim decisions for all pesticides listed in 
the Table in Unit IV. Through this program, EPA is ensuring that each 
pesticide's registration is based on current scientific and other 
knowledge, including its effects on human health and the environment.

III. Authority

    EPA is conducting its registration review of the chemicals listed 
in the Table in Unit IV. pursuant to section 3(g) of the Federal 
Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) and the Procedural 
Regulations for Registration Review at 40 CFR part 155, subpart C. 
Section 3(g) of FIFRA provides, among other things, that the 
registrations of pesticides are to be reviewed every 15 years. Under 
FIFRA, a pesticide product may be registered or remain registered only 
if it meets the statutory standard for registration given in FIFRA 
section 3(c)(5) (7 U.S.C. 136a(c)(5)). When used in accordance with 
widespread and commonly recognized practice, the pesticide product must 
perform its intended function without unreasonable adverse effects on 
the environment; that is, without any unreasonable risk to man or the 
environment, or a human dietary risk from residues that result from the 
use of a pesticide in or on food.

IV. What action is the Agency taking?

    Pursuant to 40 CFR 155.58, this notice announces the availability 
of EPA's interim registration review decisions for the pesticides shown

    The proposed interim registration review decisions for the 
chemicals in the Table 1 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 60-day comment period for 
the proposed interim decisions in the discussion for each pesticide 
listed in the table. Comments from the 60-day comment period that were 
received may or may not have affected the Agency's interim decision. 
Pursuant to 40 CFR 155.58(c), the registration review case docket for 
the chemicals listed in the Table will remain open until all actions 
required in the interim decision have been completed.
    This document also announces the closure of the registration review 
case for Pseudomonas aureofaciens (Case Number 6009, Docket ID Number 
EPA-HQ-OPP-2012-0421) because the last U.S. registrations for these 
pesticides have been canceled.
