Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference This document proposes to amend FAA Order JO 7400.11F, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 10, 2021, and effective September 15, 2021. FAA Order JO 7400.11F is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order JO 7400.11F lists VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:14 Sep 21, 2021 Jkt 253001 Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. The Proposal The FAA proposes an amendment to 14 CFR part 71 to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Skaneateles Aerodrome, Skaneateles, NY, providing the controlled airspace required to support the new RNAV (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures for IFR operations at this airport. This action would increase the radius to 8.0 miles (previously 6.5 miles), and update the airport name to Skaneateles Aerodrome, (formerly Skaneateles Aerodrome Airport). Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraph 6005, of FAA Order JO 7400.11F, dated August 10, 2021, and effective September 15, 2021, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. FAA Order JO 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is published yearly and effective on September 15. Regulatory Notices and Analyses The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. It, therefore: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a Regulatory Evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule, when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Environmental Review This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures’’, prior to any FAA final regulatory action.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. General Information

A. Does this action apply to me?

    You may be potentially affected by this action if you are an 
agricultural producer, food manufacturer, or pesticide manufacturer. 
The following list of North American Industrial Classification System 
(NAICS) codes is not intended to be exhaustive, but rather provides a 
guide to help readers determine whether this document applies to them. 
Potentially affected entities may include:
     Crop production (NAICS code 111).
     Animal production (NAICS code 112).
     Food manufacturing (NAICS code 311).
     Pesticide manufacturing (NAICS code 32532).

B. What should I consider as I prepare my comments for EPA?

    1. Submitting CBI. Do not submit this information to EPA through 
regulations.gov or email. Clearly mark the part or all of the 
information that you claim to be CBI. For CBI information in a disk or 
CD-ROM that you mail to EPA, mark the outside of the disk or CD-ROM as 
CBI and then identify electronically within the disk or CD-ROM the 
specific information that is claimed as CBI. In addition to one 
complete version of the comment that includes information claimed as 
CBI, a copy of the comment that does not contain the information 
claimed as CBI must be submitted for inclusion in the public docket. 
Information so marked will not be disclosed except in accordance with 
procedures set forth in 40 CFR part 2.
    2. Tips for preparing your comments. When preparing and submitting 
your comments, see the commenting tips at https://www.epa.gov/dockets/comments.html.
    3. Environmental justice. EPA seeks to achieve environmental 
justice, the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of any group, 
including minority and/or low-income populations, in the development, 
implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and 
policies. To help address potential environmental justice issues, the 
Agency seeks information on any groups or segments of the population 
who, as a result of their location, cultural practices, or other 
factors, may have atypical or disproportionately high and adverse human 
health impacts or environmental effects from exposure to the pesticides 
discussed in this document, compared to the general population.

II. What action is the Agency taking?

    EPA is announcing receipt of pesticide petitions filed under 
section 408 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), 21 
U.S.C. 346a, requesting the establishment or modification of 
regulations in 40 CFR part 174 or part 180 for residues of pesticide 
chemicals in or on various food commodities. The Agency is taking 
public comment on the requests before responding to the petitioners. 
EPA is not proposing any particular action at this time. EPA has 
determined that the pesticide petitions described in this document 
contain data or information prescribed in FFDCA section 408(d)(2), 21 
U.S.C. 346a(d)(2); however, EPA has not fully evaluated the sufficiency 
of the submitted data at this time or whether the data supports 
granting of the pesticide petitions. After considering the public 
comments, EPA intends to evaluate whether and what action may be 
warranted. Additional data may be needed before EPA can make a final 
determination on these pesticide petitions.
    Pursuant to 40 CFR 180.7(f), summaries of the petitions that are 
the subject of this document, prepared by the petitioners, are included 
in dockets EPA has created for these rulemakings. The dockets for these 
petitions are available at http://www.regulations.gov.
    As specified in FFDCA section 408(d)(3), 21 U.S.C. 346a(d)(3), EPA 
is publishing notice of the petitions so that the public has an 
opportunity to comment on these requests for the establishment or 
modification of regulations for residues of pesticides in or on food 
commodities. Further information on the petitions may be obtained 
through the petition summaries referenced in this unit.

A. Amended Tolerance Exemptions for Non-Inerts (Except PIPS)

    PP 0F8892. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2021-0551). The Lubrizol Corporation, 29400 
Lakeland Blvd., Wickliffe, OH 44092, requests to amend an exemption 
from the requirement of a tolerance in 40 CFR 180.1327 to include 
residues of the bactericide, fungicide, insecticide, and miticide 
tetraacetylethylenediamine (TAED) in or on all raw agricultural 
commodities. The analytical method Warwick International, Ltd.'s QC 
Method SOP No. 1631 is available to EPA for the detection and 
measurement of the pesticide residues. Contact: BPPD.

B. Amended Tolerances for Non-Inerts

    1. PP 1E8919. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2021-0446). Interregional Research 
Project No. 4 (IR-4), Project Headquarters, Rutgers, The State 
University of NJ, 500 College Road East, Suite 201 W, Princeton, NJ 
08540, requests to amend 40 CFR part 180 by removing the established 
tolerance for residues of pydiflumetofen, including its metabolites and 
degradates, in or on vegetable, fruiting, group 8-10 at 0.6 parts per 
million (ppm). Contact: RD.
    2. PP 1E8932. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2021-0449). Interregional Research 
Project Number 4 (IR-4), Project Headquarters, Rutgers, The State 
University of New Jersey, 500 College Road East, Suite 201 W, 
Princeton, NJ 08450, requests to amend 40 CFR part 180 by removing the 
established tolerances for residues of fluopyram, including its 
metabolites and degradates in or on bean, dry at 0.70

[[Page 52626]]

ppm; brassica, head and stem, subgroup 5A at 4.0 ppm; brassica, leafy 
greens, subgroup 5B at 50 ppm; dill, seed at 70 ppm; leafy greens 
subgroup 4A at 40 ppm; leafy petioles subgroup 4B at 20 ppm; pea and 
bean, succulent shelled, subgroup 6B at 0.20 ppm; and vegetable, 
legume, edible podded, subgroup 6A at 4.0 ppm. Contact: RD.

C. New Tolerance Exemptions for Inerts (Except PIPS)

    PP IN-11268. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2021-0582). SciReg, Inc., 12733 Director's 
Loop, Woodbridge, VA 22192, on behalf of Albaugh, LLC, P.O. Box 2127, 
Valdosta, GA 31604, requests to establish an exemption from the 
requirement of a tolerance for residues of cocamidopropylamine oxide 
(CAS Reg. No. 68155-09-9) when used as a pesticide inert ingredient 
(surfactant) in glyphosate formulations under 40 CFR 180.910 at a 
concentration not to exceed 6% (w/w). The petitioner believes no 
analytical method is needed because it is not required for an exemption 
from the requirement of a tolerance. Contact: RD.

D. New Tolerance Exemptions for Non-Inerts (Except PIPS)

    1. PP 0F8841. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2021-0139). Lesaffre Yeast Corporation, 
7475 West Main St., Milwaukee, WI 53214, requests to establish an 
exemption from the requirement of a tolerance in 40 CFR part 180 for 
residues of the fungicide and bactericide Saccharomyces cerevisiae 
strain LAS02 in or on all food commodities. The petitioner believes no 
analytical method is needed because it is seeking to establish a 
tolerance exemption for pesticide chemical residues; therefore, an 
analytical method is not required. Additionally, the petitioner 
believes toxicological data and public literature discussed in the 
tolerance exemption petition summary are sufficient to show that there 
are no foreseeable human or domestic health hazards likely to arise 
from the use of the product to control postharvest diseases on crops in 
the greenhouse and in the field. Contact: BPPD.
    2. PP 0F8852. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2021-0534). Symborg, Inc., P.O. Box 
12810, San Luis Obispo, CA 93406, requests to establish an exemption 
from the requirement of a tolerance in 40 CFR part 180 for residues of 
the fungicide Trichoderma harzianum strain T78 in or on all 
agricultural commodities. The petitioner believes no analytical method 
is needed because it is not applicable in this situation. When used as 
proposed, the petitioner expects that applications of Trichoderma 
harzianum strain T78 would not result in residues that are of 
toxicological concern. Contact: BPPD.
    3. PP 0F8856. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2021-0470). Loveland Products, Inc., P.O. 
Box 1286, Greeley, CO 80632-1286, requests to establish an exemption 
from the requirement of a tolerance in 40 CFR part 180 for residues of 
the plant regulator salicylic acid (2-hydroxybenzoic acid) in or on all 
raw agricultural commodities. The petitioner believes no analytical 
method is needed because salicylic acid and salicylic acid-related 
compounds such as methyl salicylate occur naturally in all plant-
derived food or feed items. Methyl salicylate, the main component of 
oil of wintergreen, is widely used as a food-flavoring agent and 
contributes to food residues of salicylic acid and salicylic acid-
related compounds in foods. Salicylic acid end-use products will be 
used at low use rates (0.01 to 0.054 lb AI/A) and, given the proposed 
use patterns, residues on raw agricultural commodities at the time of 
harvest are not expected to be significantly greater than the natural 
background levels of salicylic acid. Based on the multiple sources of 
salicylic acid and the inability to determine the source of salicylic 
acid in food crops as natural or from use of salicylic acid end-use 
products, Loveland Products, Inc. believes that an analytical method 
for salicylic acid in foods is not necessary to protect the public 
health or the environment. Contact: BPPD.
    4. PP 0F8886. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2021-0401). Indigo Ag, Inc., 500 
Rutherford Ave., Boston, MA 02129, requests to establish an exemption 
from the requirement of a tolerance in 40 CFR part 180 for residues of 
the nematode suppression agent Streptomyces sp. strain SYM00257 in or 
on all food commodities. The petitioner believes no analytical method 
is needed because, based on the metabolic profiling it has performed, 
no metabolites of concern are produced by Streptomyces sp. strain 
SYM00257. Contact: BPPD.
    5. PP 1F8903. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2021-0571). NewLeaf Symbiotics, 1005 
North Warson Rd., Suite 102, St. Louis, MO 63132, requests to establish 
an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance in 40 CFR part 180 for 
residues of the insecticide Methylorubrum extorquens strain NLS0042 in 
or on all food commodities. The petitioner believes no analytical 
method is needed because an exemption from the requirement of a 
tolerance is being proposed. Contact: BPPD.
    6. PP 1F8907. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2021-0519). OmniLytics, Inc., 9075 South 
Sandy Parkway, Sandy, UT 84070, requests to establish an exemption from 
the requirement of a tolerance in 40 CFR part 180 for residues of the 
bactericides bacteriophage active against Xanthomonas arboricola pv. 
pruni, bacteriophage active against Xanthomonas arboricola pv. 
juglandis, bacteriophage active against Xanthomonas arboricola pv. 
corylina, and bacteriophage active against Pseudomonas syringae pv. 
syringae in or on all food commodities. The petitioner believes no 
analytical method is needed because an exemption from the required 
tolerance is being proposed. Contact: BPPD.
