Tolfenpyrad; Pesticide Tolerances for Emergency Exemptions
Document Number: 2016-24093
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-10-05
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
This regulation establishes time-limited tolerances for residues of tolfenpyrad in or on vegetable, fruiting, group 8-10. This action is in response to EPA's granting of an emergency exemption under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) authorizing use of the pesticide on agricultural commodities in the group ``vegetable, fruiting, group 8- 10.'' This regulation establishes a maximum permissible level for residues of tolfenpyrad in or on these commodities. The time-limited tolerances expire on December 31, 2019.
Acrylic acid-butyl acrylate-styrene copolymer; Tolerance Exemption
Document Number: 2016-24083
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-10-05
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
This regulation establishes an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for residues of 2-propenoic acid, polymer with butyl 2- propenoate and ethenylbenzene, also known as acrylic acid-butyl acrylate-styrene copolymer, when used as an inert ingredient in a pesticide chemical formulation. Momentive Performance Materials submitted a petition to EPA under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), requesting an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance. This regulation eliminates the need to establish a maximum permissible level for residues of 2-propenoic acid, polymer with butyl 2-propenoate and ethenylbenzene on food or feed commodities.
Air Plan Approval; Georgia: Volatile Organic Compounds

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to approve portions of two revisions to the Georgia State Implementation Plan submitted by the Georgia Department of Environmental Protection on July 25, 2014, and November 1, 2015.

Specifically, these revisions add two compounds to the list of those excluded from the VOC definition on the basis that these compounds make a negligible contribution to tropospheric ozone formation. This action is being taken pursuant to the Clean Air Act.
