SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. General Information

A. Does this Action Apply to Me?

The Agency included in the final rule a list of those who may be potentially affected by this action. If you have questions regarding the applicability of this action to a particular entity, consult the person listed under the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.

In addition to using regulations.gov, you may access this Federal Register document electronically through the EPA Internet under the “Federal Register” listings at http://www.epa.gov/​fedrgstr.

II. What Does this Correction Do?

EPA is correcting the nomenclature document issued in the Federal Register on September 18, 2007 (72 FR 53134) (FRL-8126-5). Subsequent to publication of the September 18, 2007 Federal Register document, EPA learned that in the table of some 600 entries, several of the nomenclature changes had been included in a tolerance regulation that was issued in the Federal Register of September 12, 2007, (72 FR 52013), thus making inclusion of those entries unnecessary and confusing. Therefore, EPA is removing the duplicate nomenclature changes that appeared in the September 12, 2007 Federal Register tolerance rule from the September 18, 2007 tolerance nomenclature document.

III. Why is this Correction Issued as a Final Rule?

Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 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 final rule without providing notice and an opportunity for public comment. EPA has determined that there is good cause for making today's technical correction final without prior proposal and opportunity for comment, because this document is merely removing commodity entries that have already been updated. EPA finds that this constitutes good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B).

IV. Do Any of the Statutory and Executive Order Reviews Apply to this Action?

EPA included the required statutory discussion in the September 18, 2007 nomenclature rule.

V. Congressional Review Act

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 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).
