Date: 2008-08-27
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
This regulation establishes an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for residues of the microbial pesticide Bacillus subtilis GB03 in or on all raw agricultural commodities when applied in accordance with good agricultural practices. Growth Products Ltd. submitted a petition to EPA under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), as amended by the Food Quality Protection Act of 1996 (FQPA), requesting an amendment of the existing exemption from the requirement of a tolerance to cover use in or on all agricultural commodities and remove the regulatory text specifying ``when applied as a seed treatment.''

Malathion; Order Amending Registration to Terminate Certain Uses
Document Number: E8-19762
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-08-27
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
EPA is granting a registrant's voluntary request for amendments to terminate certain uses of products containing the pesticide malathion, pursuant to section 6(f)(1) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). This order follows a March 18, 1991 Federal Register Notice of Receipt of Requests to amend the registration of Fyfanon Technical, EPA Reg. No. 4787-5, to terminate certain uses. The requested amendments would not terminate all uses of malathion products registered for use in the United States. In the March 18, 1991 notice, EPA indicated that it intended to approve the requested amendments to terminate uses. Today's order does not terminate all of the uses identified in the March 18, 1991 notice, because Cheminova A/S and the Interregional Research Project No. 4 (IR- 4) adequately supported certain uses. Accordingly, EPA hereby grants, in part, the requested registration amendments and orders the termination of the uses identified in Unit II. Any distribution, sale, or use of Fyfanon Technical, EPA Reg. No. 4787-5, is permitted only in accordance with the terms of this order, including any existing stocks provisions.
