II. Background

During fiscal year 1999, EPA completed reregistration eligibility decisions for 14 pesticides, and issued Reregistration Eligibility Decision (RED) documents for the pesticide active ingredients listed below. The Agency published a Notice in the Federal Register on December 3, 1999 (64 FR 67902) (FRL-6395-6), announcing the availability of RED documents for six of these pesticides (Captan, S-Ethyl dipropylthiocarbamate (EPTC), Folpet, Niclosamide and 3-trifluoromethyl-4-nitrophenol (TFM or Lamprecide), and Pebulate). These REDs were issued as final documents with a 60-day comment period, which closed on February 1, 2000. In these REDs, EPA provided its regulatory position on the current registered uses of these pesticides and set forth certain requirements for product reregistration eligibility.

The Agency also published separate Federal Register notices announcing the availability of REDs for Sulfotepp (a voluntary cancellation) on December 22, 1999 (64 FR 71754) (FRL-6391-2), and triphenyltin hydroxide (TPTH) on December 1, 1999 (64 FR 67265) (FRL-6395-3), the latter for 90 days of public comment. EPA will announce in the Federal Register the cancellation of Sulfotepp when it becomes effective in September 2002.
