II. Background and Statutory Findings

In the Federal Register of April 8, 2005 (70 FR 18001) (FRL-7703-8), EPA issued a notice pursuant to section 408(d)(3) of FFDCA, 21 U.S.C. 346a(d)(3), announcing the filing of a pesticide petition (PP 3E6578) by Bayer CropScience AG, 2 T.W. Alexander Drive; Research Triangle Park, NC 27709. The petition requested that 40 CFR 180.581 be amended by establishing a tolerance for residues of the fungicide iprovalicarb, [1-methylethyl [(1S)-2-methyl-1-[[[1-(4-methylphenyl) ethyl] amino] carbonyl] propyl] carbamate], in or on tomatoes at 1.0 parts per million (ppm). That notice included a summary of the petition prepared by Bayer CropScience AG, the registrant. Comments were received on the notice of filing. EPA's response to these comments is discussed in Unit IV.C. below.

Section 408(b)(2)(A)(i) of FFDCA allows EPA to establish a tolerance (the legal limit for a pesticide chemical residue in or on a food) only if EPA determines that the tolerance is “safe.” Section 408(b)(2)(A)(ii) of FFDCA defines “safe” to mean that “there is a reasonable certainty that no harm will result from aggregate exposure to the pesticide chemical residue, including all anticipated dietary exposures and all other exposures for which there is reliable information.” This includes exposure through drinking water and in residential settings, but does not include occupational exposure. Section 408(b)(2)(C) of FFDCA requires EPA to give special consideration to exposure of infants and children to the pesticide chemical residue in establishing a tolerance and to “ensure that there is a reasonable certainty that no harm will result to infants and children from aggregate exposure to the pesticide chemical residue. . . .”

EPA performs a number of analyses to determine the risks from aggregate exposure to pesticide residues. For further discussion of the regulatory requirements of section 408 of FFDCA and a complete description of the risk assessment process, see http://www.epa.gov/​pesticides/​factsheets/​riskassess.htm

III. Aggregate Risk Assessment and Determination of Safety

Consistent with section 408(b)(2)(D) of FFDCA, EPA has reviewed the available scientific data and other relevant information in support of this action. EPA has sufficient data to assess the hazards of and to make a determination on aggregate exposure, consistent with section 408(b)(2) of FFDCA, for a tolerance for residues of iprovalicarb on tomatoes at 1.0 ppm. EPA's assessment of exposures and risks associated with establishing the tolerance follows.

A. Toxicological Profile

EPA has evaluated the available toxicity data and considered its validity, completeness, and reliability as well as the relationship of the results of the studies to human risk. EPA has also considered available information concerning the variability of the sensitivities of major identifiable subgroups of consumers, including infants and children. Specific information on the studies received and the nature of the toxic effects caused by iprovalicarb as well as the no observed adverse effect level (NOAEL) and the lowest observed adverse effect level (LOAEL) from the toxicity studies can be found at http://www.epa.gov/​edocket.

B. Toxicological Endpoints

For hazards that have a threshold below which there is no appreciable risk, the dose at which no adverse effects are observed (the NOAEL) from the toxicology study identified as appropriate for use in risk assessment is used to estimate the toxicological level of concern (LOC). However, the lowest dose at which adverse effects of concern are identified (the LOAEL) is sometimes used for risk assessment if no NOAEL was achieved in the toxicology study selected. An uncertainty factor (UF) is applied to reflect uncertainties inherent in the extrapolation from laboratory animal data to humans and in the variations in sensitivity among members of the human population as well as other unknowns.

The linear default risk methodology (Q*) is the primary method currently used by the Agency to quantify non-threshold hazards such as cancer. The Q* approach which assumes that any amount of exposure will lead to some degree of cancer risk, estimates risk in terms of the probability of occurrence of additional cancer cases. More information can be found on the general principles that EPA uses in risk characterization at http://www.epa.gov/​oppfead1/​trac/​science/​.

A summary of the toxicological endpoints for iprovalicarb used for human risk assessment is discussed in Unit III.B. of the final rule published in the Federal Register of August 22, 2002 (67 FR 54351) (FRL-7194-3).

C. Exposure Assessment

1. Dietary exposure from food and feed uses. A tolerance has been established (40 CFR 180.581) for the residues of iprovalicarb, in or on grapes. Risk assessments were conducted by EPA to assess dietary exposures from iprovalicarb in food as follows:

i. Acute exposure. Quantitative acute dietary exposure and risk assessments are performed for a food-use pesticide, if a toxicological study has indicated the possibility of an effect of concern occurring as a result of a 1-day or single exposure.

No such effects were identified in the toxicological studies for iprovalicarb; therefore, a quantitative acute dietary exposure assessment is unnecessary.

ii. Chronic exposure. In conducting the chronic dietary exposure assessment EPA used the Dietary Exposure Evaluation Model software with the Food Commodity Intake Database (DEEM-FCIDTM), both of which incorporate food consumption data as Start Printed Page 55279reported by respondents in the USDA 1994-1996 and 1998 Nationwide Continuing Surveys of Food Intake by Individuals (CSFII), and accumulated exposure to the chemical for each commodity. The following assumptions were made for the chronic exposure assessments: Assessments were based on tolerance-level residues in/on grape commodities, anticipated residue (AR) values for tomato commodities, DEEM default processing factors, and 100% crop treated (100% CT) assumptions. The AR used for tomatoes was 0.5 ppm, or half the proposed tolerance level of 1.0 ppm for harmonization purposes.

iii. Cancer. The cancer dietary exposure analysis was based on the same assumptions as the chronic dietary exposure analysis.

iv. Anticipated residue and percent crop treated (PCT)information.

Section 408(b)(2)(E) of the FFDCA authorizes EPA to use available data and information on the anticipated residue levels of pesticide residues in food and the actual levels of pesticide chemicals that have been measured in food. If EPA relies on such information, EPA must pursuant to section 408(f)(1) require that data be provided 5 years after the tolerance is established, modified, or left in effect, demonstrating that the levels in food are not above the levels anticipated. Following the initial data submission, EPA is authorized to require similar data on a time frame it deems appropriate. For the present action, EPA will issue such data call-ins for information relating to anticipated residues as are required by FFDCA section 408(b)(2)(E) and authorized under FFDCA section 408(f)(1). Such Data Call-Ins will be required to be submitted no later than 5 years from the date of issuance of this tolerance.

2. Dietary exposure from drinking water. There is no expectation that exposure to iprovalicarb residues would occur via drinking water. This action is for a tolerance on imported tomatoes only, and there are no registered uses of iprovalicarb in the United States.

3. From non-dietary exposure. The term“residential exposure” is used in this document to refer to non-occupational, non-dietary exposure (e.g., for lawn and garden pest control, indoor pest control, termiticides, and flea and tick control on pets). Iprovalicarb is not registered for use on any sites that would result in residential exposure.

4. Cumulative effects from substances with a common mechanism of toxicity. Section 408(b)(2)(D)(v) of the FFDCA requires that, when considering whether to establish, modify, or revoke a tolerance, the Agency consider “available information” concerning the cumulative effects of a particular pesticide's residues and “other substances that have a common mechanism of toxicity.”

Although iprovalicarb is a carbamate compound, it is not a member of the class of insecticides known as the N-methyl carbamates for which the Agency is presently conducting a cumulative risk assessment. The common mechanism determination for the N-methyl carbamates was based on shared structural characteristics and their shared ability to cause neurotoxicity through the inhibition of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) by carbamylation of the serine hydroxyl group located in the active site of the enzyme. Iprovalicarb does not fit these characteristics and therefore should not be included in the N-methyl carbamate common mechanism group nor should it be included in the N-methyl carbamate cumulative risk assessment. The Agency has concluded that other subgroups of carbamates do not share a common mechanism of toxicity. For information regarding EPA's efforts to determine which chemicals have a common mechanism of toxicity and to evaluate the cumulative effects of such chemicals, see the policy statements released by EPA's Office of Pesticide Programs concerning common mechanism determinations and procedures for cumulating effects from substances found to have a common mechanism on EPA's website at http://www.epa.gov/​pesticides/​cumulative/​.

D. Safety Factor for Infants and Children

1. In general. Section 408 of FFDCA provides that EPA shall apply an additional tenfold margin of safety for infants and children in the case of threshold effects to account for prenatal and postnatal toxicity and the completeness of the data base on toxicity and exposure unless EPA determines based on reliable data that a different margin of safety will be safe for infants and children. Margins of safety are incorporated into EPA risk assessments either directly through use of a margin of exposure analysis or through using uncertainty (safety) factors in calculating a dose level that poses no appreciable risk to humans. In applying this provision, EPA either retains the default value of 10X when reliable data do not support the choice of a different factor, or, if reliable data are available, EPA uses a different additional safety factor value based on the use of traditional uncertainty factors and/or special FQPA safety factors, as appropriate.

2. Prenatal and postnatal sensitivity. There is no evidence for increased succeptability of fetuses to in utero exposure to iprovalicarb in either the rat developmental or rabbit developmental studies. There is qualitative evidence of susceptibility in the multi-generation reproduction study in the rat. However, it was concluded that there is a low degree of concern (and no residual uncertainty) for the effects seen because:

i. The increased susceptibility (decrease in pup survival) was seen only at the highest dose tested (2,074 milligram/kilogram/day (mg/kg/day)) which is twice the limit dose.

ii. The decrease in pup survival was seen only in 1-generation (F1, not replicated in F2).

iii. There are clearly defined NOAELs/LOAELs for parental and offspring toxicity.

iv. The effects seen in the offspring occurred at a much higher dose (192 mg/kg/day) than that used to establish the Chronic RfD (NOAEL of 2.62 mg/kg/day). Furthermore, the Agency concluded that a developmental neurotoxicity study is not required. No treatment-related toxicologically significant sign of neurotoxicity were observed in any available studies on iprovalicarb.

3. Conclusion. There is a complete toxicity data base for iprovalicarb and exposure data are complete or are estimated based on data that reasonably accounts for potential exposures. Additionally the Agency concludes that there are reliable data that indicate there are no (residual) concerns for the prenatal and/or postnatal toxicity following exposure to iprovalicarb. Therefore, no additional safety factor (1X) is necessary to protect the safety of infants and children.

E. Aggregate Risks and Determination of Safety

1. Acute risk. An endpoint attributable to a single dose was not identified for any population subgroups. Therefore, no acute risk is expected.

2. Chronic risk. Using the exposure assumptions described in this unit for chronic exposure, EPA has concluded that exposure to iprovalicarb from food will utilize 8.4% of the cPAD for the U.S. population, [9.9 %] of the cPAD for all infants (< 1 year), and 37% of the cPAD for children (1-2 years). There are no residential uses for iprovalicarb that result in chronic residential exposure to iprovalicarb. In addition, there is no potential for chronic dietary exposure to iprovalicarb in drinking water. EPA does not expect the aggregate exposure (dietary only) to exceed 100% of the cPAD, as shown in Table of this unit:

Start Printed Page 55280

Table 1.—Aggregate Risk Assessment for Chronic (Non-Cancer) Exposure to Iprovalicarb

Population/SubgroupcPAD (mg/kg/day)% cPAD (Food)
U.S. population0.0268.4
All Infants (< 1 yr)0.0269.9
Children 1-2 yrs0.02637

3. Short-term risk. Iprovalicarb is not registered for use on any sites that would result in residential exposure. Therefore, the aggregate risk is the sum of the risk from food and water, which do not exceed the Agency's level of concern.

4. Intermediate-term risk. Iprovalicarb is not registered for use on any sites that would result in residential exposure. Therefore, the aggregate risk is the sum of the risk from food and water, which do not exceed the Agency's level of concern.

5. Aggregate cancer risk for U.S. population. The lifetime cancer risk from iprovalicarb dietary exposure is determined for the U.S. population (total) only. The estimated exposure to iprovalicarb is 0.002189 mg/kg/day. Applying the Q1* of 4.47 x 10-4 (mg/kg/day)-1 to the exposure value results in a cancer risk estimate of 9.74 x 10-7. This risk is negligible, and does not exceed the Agency's level of concern.

6. Determination of safety. Based on these risk assessments, EPA concludes that there is a reasonable certainty that no harm will result to the general population, and to infants and children from aggregate exposure to iprovalicarb residues.

IV. Other Considerations

A. Analytical Enforcement Methodology

Adequate enforcement methodology (HLPC/MS) is available to enforce the tolerance expression. The method may be requested from: Chief, Analytical Chemistry Branch, Environmental Science Center, 701 Mapes Rd., Ft. Meade, MD 20755-5350; telephone number: (410) 305-2905; e-mail address: residuemethods@epa.gov.

B. International Residue Limits

Iprovalicarb is not in the Codex system. There are no MRLs in Mexico. The Agency is recommending a 1.0 ppm tolerance on tomatoes in order to harmonize with the existing 1.0 mg/kg provisional maximum residue limit (MRL) for iprovalicarb on tomatoes in the European Union.

C. Response to Comments

Comments were received from a private citizen on April 17, 2005 objecting to the sale and use of this product. The comments further stated that no long term or combined tests have been done to show complete safety. The Agency response is as follows: The petitioner did not request registration of iprovalicarb in the U.S. The petitioner is seeking an import tolerance which would allow tomatoes treated in foreign countries to be imported into the U.S. The U.S. cannot regulate the sale and the use of a pesticide in a foreign country. The Agency had sufficient data, including chronic, long-term data, to support a determination that there is reasonable certainty that no harm will result from dietary exposure to residues of iprovalicarb.

V. Conclusion

Therefore, the tolerance is established for residues of iprovalicarb, [[1-methylethyl [(1S)-2-methyl-1-[[[1-(4-methylphenyl) ethyl] amino] carbonyl] propyl carbamate, in or on tomatoes at 1.0 ppm.

VI. Objections and Hearing Requests

Under section 408(g) of FFDCA, as amended by FQPA, any person may file an objection to any aspect of this regulation and may also request a hearing on those objections. The EPA procedural regulations which govern the submission of objections and requests for hearings appear in 40 CFR part 178. Although the procedures in those regulations require some modification to reflect the amendments made to FFDCA by FQPA, EPA will continue to use those procedures, with appropriate adjustments, until the necessary modifications can be made.The new section 408(g) of FFDCA provides essentially the same process for persons to “object” to a regulation for an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance issued by EPA under new section 408(d) of FFDCA, as was provided in the old sections 408 and 409 of FFDCA. However, the period for filing objections is now 60 days, rather than 30 days.

A. What Do I Need to Do to File an Objection or Request a Hearing?

You must file your objection or request a hearing on this regulation in accordance with the instructions provided in this unit and in 40 CFR part 178. To ensure proper receipt by EPA, you must identify docket ID number OPP-2005-0074 in the subject line on the first page of your submission.

Copies of electronic objections and hearing requests will also be accepted on disks in WordPerfect 6.1/8.0 or ASCII file format. Do not include any CBI in your electronic copy. You may also submit an electronic copy of your request at many Federal Depository Libraries.

B. When Will the Agency Grant a Request for a Hearing?

A request for a hearing will be granted if the Administrator determines that the material submitted shows the following: There is a genuine and substantial issue of fact; there is a reasonable possibility that available evidence identified by the requestor would, if established resolve one or more of such issues in favor of the requestor, taking into account uncontested claims or facts to the contrary; and resolution of the factual issue(s) in the manner sought by the requestor would be adequate to justify the action requested (40 CFR 178.32).

VII. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

This final rule establishes a tolerance under section 408(d) of FFDCA in response to a petition submitted to the Agency. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has exempted these types of actions 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 due to its lack of significance, this rule is not subject to Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001). This final rule does not contain any information collections subject to OMB approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA), 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., or impose any enforceable duty or contain any unfunded mandate as described under Title II of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA) (Public Law 104-4). Nor does it require any 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 OMB review or any Agency action under Executive Order 13045, entitled Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997). 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). Since tolerances and exemptions that are established on the basis of a petition under section 408(d) of FFDCA, such as the tolerance in this final rule, do not require the issuance of a proposed rule, the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) do not apply. In addition, the Agency has determined that this action will not have a substantial direct effect on States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government, as specified in Executive Order 13132, entitled Federalism (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999). Executive Order 13132 requires EPA to develop an accountable process to ensure “meaningful and timely input by State and local officials in the development of regulatory policies that have federalism implications.” “Policies that have federalism implications” is defined in the Executive Order to include regulations that have “substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government.” This final rule directly regulates growers, food processors, food handlers and food retailers, not States. This action does not alter the relationships or distribution of power and responsibilities established by Congress in the preemption provisions of section 408(n)(4) of FFDCA. For these same reasons, the Agency has determined that this rule does not have any “tribal implications” as described in Executive Order 13175, entitled Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments (65 FR 67249, November 6, 2000). Executive Order 13175, requires EPA to develop an accountable process to ensure “meaningful and timely input by tribal officials in the development of regulatory policies that have tribal implications.” “Policies that have tribal implications” is defined in the Executive Order to include regulations that have "“substantial direct effects on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and the Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes.” This rule will not have substantial direct effects on tribal governments, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, as specified in Executive Order 13175. Thus, Executive Order 13175 does not apply to this rule.

VIII. Congressional Review Act

The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., as added by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, 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. 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).
