II. Background

EPA's Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) has developed a commodity vocabulary data base entitled “Food and Feed Commodity Vocabulary.” The data base was developed to consolidate all the major OPP commodity vocabularies Start Printed Page 74803into one standardized vocabulary. As a result, all future pesticide tolerances issued under 40 CFR part 180 will use the “preferred commodity term” as listed in the aforementioned data base. This is the fifth in a series of documents revising the terminology of commodity terms currently in tolerances in 40 CFR part 180. Final rules, revising pesticide tolerance nomenclature, were published in the Federal Register on June 19, 2002 (67 FR 41802) (FRL-6835-2); June 21, 2002 (67 FR 42392) (FRL-7180-1), on July 1, 2003(68 FR 39428) (FRL-7308-9), and (68 FR 39435) (FRL-7316-9).

A. What Action is the Agency Taking?

In this rule, EPA is making the following format changes to the terminology of the commodity terms in 40 CFR part 180 to the extent the terminology is not already in this format:

1. The first letter of the commodity term is capitalized. All other letters, including the first letter of proper names, are changed to lower case.

2. Commodity terms are listed in the singular although there are the following exceptions: “leaves”, “roots”, “tops”, “greens”, “hulls”, “vines”, “fractions”, “shoots”, and “byproducts”.

3. Commodity terms are amended so that generic terms, such as “corn” and “pea”, precede modifying terms, such as “field”, “dry” and “summer”.

4. Parentheses are replaced with commas. Example: “Pea (succulent)” is replaced with “Pea, succulent”.

6. Crop group terms are revised to standardize with the “Food and Feed Vocabulary”. Examples:

i. “Brassica, leafy” is replaced with “Vegetable, brassica, leafy, group 5”.

ii. “Fruit, citrus group is replaced with “Fruit, citrus, group 10”.

iii. “Leafy vegetables (except Brassica)” is replaced with “Vegetable, leafy, except brassica, group 4”.

iv. “Vegetable, brassica, head and stem, subgroup 5a” is replaced with “Brassica, head and stem, subgroup 5A”.

v. “Tree nut” is replaced with “Nut, tree, group 14”.

B. Additional Changes

In addition to format changes to the commodity terms, this document also includes many revisions to the commodity terms. These revisions replace certain commodity terms that are no longer used by EPA with the appropriate matching term in the “Food and Feed Commodity Vocabulary”. For example, “Alfalfa, fresh ' is replaced with “Alfalfa, forage”, “Barley, fodder” is replaced with “Barley, straw”. “Bean, dried” is replaced with “Bean, dry, seed”. “Cottonseed” and “Cotton seed” are replaced with “Cotton, undelinted seed”. “Dry bulb onion” is replaced with “Onion, bulb”. “Coffee bean” is replaced with “Coffee, bean, green”.

“Corn, sweet, kernal plus cob with husks removed”; “Corn, sweet, kernel + cob with husks removed”; “Corn sweet, kernels plus cob with husks removed”; “Corn, fresh, kernel plus cob with husks removed”; “Corn, fresh (including sweet), kernel plus cob with husks removed”; “Corn, fresh (inc. sweet, kernel plus cob with husks removed)” and “Sweet corn, kernel plus cob with husks removed” are replaced with the term “Corn, sweet, kernel plus cob with husks removed”.

This document also deletes certain terms that are not needed to identify the tolerance commodities.

Examples:

i. The terms “nutmeat” and “nutmeats” when used in association with the tree nut crops or peanut are not needed. For tree nut crops, nutmeat and almond hulls are the only edible portions of the crop consumed. Therefore, OPP's Food and Feed Commodity Vocabulary uses the commodity terms “Almond”, “Pecan”, “Walnut”, etc. for the tree nuts and the commodity term “Peanut” is used in place of “Peanut, nutmeat”. Since “almond hulls” are fed to livestock, tolerances may be established for “Almond, hulls”.

ii. The term “Endive (escarole)” is changed to “Endive” since the term “Endive” includes escarole.

iii. The term “Blueberry (huckleberry)” is changed to “Blueberry” since the term “Blueberry” includes huckleberries.

iv. The term “Banana (whole)” is changed to “Banana” since the “Food and Feed Vocabulary” uses the term “Banana” to refer to the whole banana.

III. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

This final rule makes technical amendments to the Code of Federal Regulations which have no substantive impact on the underlying regulations, and it does not otherwise impose or amend any requirements. As such, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has determined that a technical amendment is not a “significant regulatory action” subject to review by OMB under Executive Order 12866, entitled Regulatory Planning and Review (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993). Because this final rule has been exempted from review under Executive Order 12866 due to its lack of significance, this final 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). The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) (5 U.S.C. 601et seq.) generally requires an agency to prepare a regulatory flexibility analysis of any rule subject to notice and comment rulemaking requirements under the Administrative Procedure Act or any other statute unless the agency certifies that the rule will not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities. Small entities include small businesses, small organizations, and small governmental organizations. After considering the economic impacts of today's final rule on small entities, I certify that this action will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This action proposes technical amendments to the Code of Federal Regulations which have no substantive impact on the underyling regulations. This technical amendment will not have any negative economic impact on any entities, including small entities. 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 Start Printed Page 74804to 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 the FFDCA. For these same reasons, the Agency has determined that this final 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 andIndian tribes.” This final 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 final rule.

IV. 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).
