This notice constitutes and announces the closing of the 30-day public comment period for dinocap. Because EPA did not receive any comments, the Agency considers the RED for dinocap a final decision.

B. What is the Agency's Authority for Taking this Action?

The legal authority for this RED falls under FIFRA, as amended in 1988 and 1996. Section 4(g)(2)(A) of FIFRA directs that, after submission of all data concerning a pesticide active ingredient, “the Administrator shall determine whether pesticides containing such active ingredient are eligible for reregistration,” before calling in product specific data on individual end-use products, and either reregistering products or taking “other appropriate regulatory action.”
