II. Background

A. Background on the Inert Ingredient Tolerance Exemption Revocation Action

In a final rule published in the Federal Register on August 9, 2006 (71 FR 45415)(FRL-8084-1), EPA revoked inert ingredient tolerance exemptions because insufficient data were available to the Agency to make the safety determination required by FFDCA section 408(c)(2). EPA concluded it had insufficient data to make the safety finding of FFDCA section 408(c)(2) and revoked the inert ingredient tolerance exemptions identified in the final rule under 40 CFR 180.910, 180.920, 180.930, and 180.940, with the revocations effective on August 9, 2008. This action did not preclude the possibility that through rulemaking EPA could reinstate those tolerance exemptions for which data are submitted that are sufficient to support the 408(c)(2) safety finding.

In the Federal Register of November 2, 2007, (72 FR 62232)(FRL-8155-4), EPA published the support status of each of the revoked tolerance exemptions. EPA had received communications from pesticide registrants and inert ingredient manufacturers expressing interest in supporting certain revoked inert ingredient tolerance exemptions. EPA’s guidance, available at http://www.epa.gov/​opprd001/​inerts/​, describes how interested parties could demonstrate support for revoked tolerance exemptions, including identifying test materials and contracts with laboratories.

Elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register is the final rule that moves the effective date of the revocation to August 9, 2009 for those tolerance exemptions where EPA has received a demonstration of intent to support. No extensions are granted for revoked tolerance exemptions where EPA has not received a demonstration of intent to support, therefore, the revocation date for unsupported tolerance exemptions remains August 9, 2008.

B. Effective Dates of the Revocation of Tolerance Exemptions with Insufficient Data

The following provides the revocation status of each of the inert ingredient tolerance exemptions revoked because of insufficient data. The tolerance exemptions are presented below in the order they appeared in the final rule published in the Federal Register on August 9, 2006 (71 FR 45415). The revocation status has been added to the end of each tolerance exemption expression. The expiration date of August 9, 2009 applies to tolerance exemption expressions with the following at the end: “(Demonstration of intent to support; revocation effective August 9, 2009).” Tolerance exemption expressions with “(No demonstration of support; revocation effective August 9, 2008)” expire on August 9, 2008. In addition, administrative revocation was completed in the Federal Register on August 9, 2006 (71 FR 45415) for seven redundant and incorrect tolerance exemptions, which are identified here as “(Administrative revocation is complete; revoked August 9, 2006)”.

Two other revoked tolerance exemptions received an acceptable demonstration of support and the effective date of the revocation is now August 9, 2009. In the Federal Register on August 9, 2006 (71 FR 45415), the Agency revoked two inert ingredient tolerance exemptions with insufficient data under 40 CFR part 180. They were inadvertently removed from the CFR some time ago but are considered to be active tolerance exemptions subject to reassessment as required by the FFDCA section 408(q). The effective date of the revocation of the following two tolerance exemptions is now August 9, 2009:

1. Section 180.910: “α-Alkyl(C12-C15)-ω- hydroxypoly(oxyethylene) sulfate, ammonium, calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, and zinc salts; the poly(oxyethylene) content averages 3 moles.”, and

2. Section 180.930: “α-Alkyl (C12-C15)-ω-hydroxypoly(oxyethylene) sulfate and its ammonium, calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, and zinc salts; the poly(oxyethylene) content averages 3 moles.”

C. Unsupported Inert Ingredient Tolerance Exemptions

It is important to note that EPA has not received indications of intent to support many of the inert ingredient Start Printed Page 45318tolerance exemptions revoked in the Federal Register on August 9, 2006 (71 FR 45415). The unsupported tolerance exemptions are identified in the list in this Unit with “(No demonstration of intent to support; revocation effective August 9, 2008)” at the end of the expression. No time extension is granted for the revoked tolerance exemptions where EPA has not received a demonstration of intent to support, therefore, the expiration date for those tolerance exemptions with no indication of intent to support remains August 9, 2008. Please note that this revocation action only affects the use of these inert ingredients in food-use pesticide products, therefore, any current use of these inert ingredients in non-food use pesticide products is not affected.

At this time, EPA is no longer accepting or processing applications for registrations for food-use products containing a tolerance exemption that expires on August 9, 2008 unless accompanied by a petition for a new tolerance or exemption under the Pesticide Registration Improvement Renewal Act (PRIA 2), together with all necessary supporting data. All commodities containing residues of these revoked inert ingredients on food are adulterated under FFDCA 408 if the residues are the result of applications of pesticide products made after August 9, 2008. Registrants who submitted a registration application for a food-use formulation containing an inert ingredient with an expiring tolerance exemption may submit a new application for registration with only those inert ingredients that are approved for the label’s use sites. If the registration application is subject to, including registration applications submitted under PRIA 2 that include a petition for a new or amended food-use inert ingredient, the following Web site provides useful information: http://www.epa.gov/​pesticides/​fees/​questions/​pria21day_​wrksht.pdf. Currently approved food-use inert ingredient tolerance exemptions are found in 40 CFR part 180 (http://www.epa.gov/​opprd001/​inerts/​lists.html). Contact EPA’s Inert Ingredient Assessment Branch at inertsbranch@epa.gov for information about how to establish a new inert ingredient.
