Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

EPA is amending 40 CFR part 180 to remove time-limited tolerances for several pesticides that were originally established to support emergency exemptions issued under section 18 of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). These time-limited tolerances are being removed from 40 CFR part 180 because they have since expired or because permanent tolerances have been established for the pesticide and commodity covered by the time-limited tolerance. The expired time-limited tolerance is obsolete, while the unexpired time-limited tolerance covered by a permanent tolerance is duplicative. In either case, the time-limited tolerance is unnecessary and is being removed with this final rule to ensure that the regulatory listings of tolerances is properly updated.

DATES:

This rule is effective May 17, 2002. Objections and requests for hearings, identified by docket control number OPP-2002-0037, must be received by EPA on or before July 16, 2002.

ADDRESSES:

Written objections and hearing requests may be submitted by mail, in person, or by courier. Please follow the detailed instructions for each method as provided in Unit I.C. of the “SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION” section. To ensure proper receipt by EPA, your objections and hearing requests must identify docket control number OPP-2002-0037 in the subject line on the first page of your response.

The PIRIB telephone number is (703) 305-5805.

C. How Can I Submit an Objection or Request a Hearing Under FFDCA?

Although section 408(g) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), as amended by the Food Quality Protection Act (FQPA), allows any person to file an objection or request a hearing when the Agency issues a final tolerance action under section 408, EPA does not expect that anyone will file an objection or request a hearing for this particular rule because the tolerances being revoked here are unnecessary duplicates of a permanent tolerance that remains in place or are obsolete by their own terms. If, for some reason, anyone wishes to file an objection or request for a hearing under section 408(g), please follow the EPA procedural regulations which govern the submission of objections and requests for hearings that appear in 40 CFR part 178. Note that the period for filing objections is now 60 days, rather than 30 days.

II. Authority

A. What is EPA's Authority for Revoking these Tolerances?

This final rule is issued pursuant to section 408(e) of FFDCA, as amended by the FQPA (21 U.S.C. 346a(e)). Section 408 of FFDCA authorizes the establishment of tolerances, exemptions from the requirement of a tolerance, modifications in tolerances, and revocation of tolerances for residues of pesticide chemicals in or on raw agricultural commodities and processed foods. Without a tolerance or tolerance exemption, food containing pesticide residues is considered to be unsafe and therefore “adulterated” under section 402(a) of the FFDCA. If food containing pesticide residues is found to be adulterated, the food may not be Start Printed Page 35046distributed in interstate commerce (21 U.S.C. 331(a) and 342(a)).

B. Why is EPA Issuing this as a Final Rule?

Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), provides that, when an agency for good cause finds that notice and public procedure are impracticable, unnecessary or contrary to the public interest, the agency may issue a rule without providing notice and an opportunity for public comment. EPA has determined that there is good cause for making today's rule final without prior proposal and opportunity for comment because the actions taken in this final rule represent technical corrections to the regulations and do not involve substantive Agency action.

The removal of an expired time-limited tolerance from 40 CFR part 180 represents a simple correction of the regulations, and does not involve any substantive Agency action. The expiration date for the time-limited tolerance is set when the Agency issues the final rule that originally establishes, or a subsequent final rule that amends, the specific time-limited tolerance. Once that time-limited tolerance expires, the associated listing in 40 CFR part 180 is obsolete and must be removed to reflect that expiration.

The revocation of an unexpired time-limited tolerance from 40 CFR part 180, however, represents a substantive Agency action. In this case, that action is appropriate because the Agency's subsequent establishment of a permanent tolerance for the same pesticide chemical and commodity that was covered by the time-limited tolerance, causes the time-limited tolerance to become obsolete. Although the time-limited tolerance would expire by its own terms and become obsolete, the Agency is removing these tolerances today to eliminate an unnecessary duplication in the regulations.

For these reasons, notice and public procedure are unnecessary. EPA finds that this constitutes good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B).

III. Overview of Today's Action

A. What Action is EPA Taking?

For each pesticide chemical and commodity combination listed below, EPA previously established a time-limited tolerance, under section 408 of the FFDCA, 21 U.S.C. 346a, as amended by the FQPA of 1996 (Public Law 104-170). EPA established the tolerances because section 408(l)(6) of the FFDCA requires EPA to establish a time-limited tolerance or exemption from the requirement for a tolerance for pesticide chemical residues in food that will result from the use of a pesticide under an emergency exemption granted by EPA under section 18 of FIFRA. These time-limited tolerances are being removed from 40 CFR part 180 today because they have since expired or because permanent tolerances have since been established making these time-limited tolerances obsolete or unnecessary.

B. Which Time-Limited Tolerances are Obsolete?

The time-limited tolerances for the following pesticide chemicals on specific commodities are being removed from 40 CFR part 180 because the time-limited tolerances have expired, or are duplicative of a permanent tolerance that the Agency subsequently established for the pesticide and commodity covered by the time-limited tolerance.

IV. Regulatory Assessment Requirements

This final rule removes obsolete or unnecessary time-limited tolerances that were previously established under FFDCA section 408.

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has exempted tolerance actions like this revocation from review under Executive Order 12866, entitled Regulatory Planning and Review (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993). Because this rule has been exempted from review under Executive Order 12866, this rule is not subject to Executive Order 13045, entitled Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997), or Executive Order 13211, entitled Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001).

Because the agency has made a good cause finding that this action is not subject to notice-and-comment requirements under the Administrative Procedure Act or any other statute (see discussion in Unit II.B. of this preamble), it is not subject to the regulatory flexibility provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA)(5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.), or to sections 202 and 205 of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA)(Public Law 104-4). In addition, this action does not significantly or uniquely affect small governments or impose a significant intergovernmental mandate, as described in sections 203 and 204 of UMRA.

This action does not alter the relationships or distribution of power and responsibilities established by Congress in the preemption provisions of FFDCA section 408(n)(4). This action will not have substantial direct effects Start Printed Page 35048on State or tribal governments, on the relationship between the Federal government and States or Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal government and States or Indian tribes. As a result, this action does not require any action under Executive Order 13132, entitled Federalism (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999), or under Executive Order 13175, entitled Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments (65 FR 67249, November 6, 2000).

Nor does it require special considerations under Executive Order 12898, entitled Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994); or Executive Order 12630, entitled Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights (53 FR 8859, March 15, 1988).

This action does not involve any technical standards that would require Agency consideration of voluntary consensus standards pursuant to section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (NTTAA), Public Law 104-113, section 12(d) (15 U.S.C. 272 note).

This rule does not impose an information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA)(44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.).

In issuing this rule, EPA has taken the necessary steps to eliminate drafting errors and ambiguity, minimize potential litigation, and provide a clear legal standard for affected conduct, as required by section 3 of Executive Order 12988 (61 FR 4729, February 7, 1996).

V. Submission to Congress and the Comptroller General

The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., generally provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating the rule must submit a rule report, which includes a copy of the rule, to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the United States. Section 808 allows the issuing agency to make a rule effective sooner than otherwise provided by the CRA if the agency makes a good cause finding that notice and public procedure is impracticable, unnecessary or contrary to the public interest. This determination must be supported by a brief statement. 5 U.S.C. 808(2). As stated in Unit II.B. of this preamble, EPA has made such a good cause finding for this rule, including the reasons therefor, and established an effective date of May 17, 2002. EPA will submit a report containing this rule and other required information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication of this final rule in the Federal Register. This final rule is not a “major rule” as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).
