Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
This regulation amends two exemptions from the requirement of a tolerance for residues of [alpha]-alkyl (minimum C6 linear, branched, saturated and/or unsaturated)-[omega]- hydroxypolyoxyethylene polymer with or without polyoxypropylene, mixture of di- and monohydrogen phosphate esters and the corresponding ammonium, calcium, magnesium, monoethanolamine, potassium, sodium, and zinc salts of the phosphate esters; minimum oxyethylene content is 2 moles; minimum oxypropylene content is 0 moles, herein referred to as alkyl alcohol alkoxylate phosphate derivatives (AAAPD) and [alpha]- Alkyl(C6-C15)-[omega]- hydroxypoly(oxyethylene)sulfate, and its ammonium, calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, and zinc salts, poly(oxyethylene) content averages 2-4 moles, herein referred to alkyl alcohol alkoxylate sulfate derivatives (AAASD) when used as inert ingredients (surfactants) applied to growing crops and raw agricultural commodities after harvest under 40 CFR 180.910 and applied to animals under 40 CFR 180.930; not to exceed 30% of pesticide formulations.
