II. What Does this Correction Do?

In the Federal Register of July 8, 2009, (74 FR 32456), EPA’s Office of Pesticide Programs issued an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for “polyglyceryl phthalate ester of coconut oil fatty acids” pursuant to a petition by the Joint Inserts Task Force, Cluster Support Team 23. The petition requested that an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for residues of polyglyceryl phthalate ester of coconut oil fatty acids, including fatty acid coco polymers with glyceryl and phthalic anhydride (CAS No. 67746-02-5) and coconut oil polymer with glyceryl and phthalic anhydride (CAS No. 66070-87-9). This technical correction corrects the name of the inert ingredient and the CAS numbers.

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 EPA is merely correcting language that was inadvertently mistyped in the previously published final rule. The correct inert ingredient names and CAS Numbers were present in the Supplementary Information Section of the July 8, 2009 final rule but were mistyped in the tolerance exemption table. 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?

The statutory and Executive order reviews were included in the July 8, 2009 final 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).
