AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

In accordance with current Agency practice to describe more clearly the measurement and scope or coverage of the tolerances, EPA is making minor revisions to tolerance expressions for a number of pesticide active ingredients, including the insecticides chlorethoxyfos, clofentezine, cyromazine, etofenprox, fenbutatin-oxide, fosthiazate, propetamphos, and tebufenozide; the fungicide aluminum tris (O-ethylphosphonate); the herbicides butylate, clethodim, clomazone, fenoxaprop-ethyl, flumetsulam, flumiclorac pentyl, fluridone, glufosinate ammonium, lactofen, propyzamide, quinclorac, and pyridate; and the fungicide/bactericide oxytetracycline. Also, EPA is revoking the tolerances for aluminum tris (O-ethylphosphonate) on pineapple fodder and forage because they are not considered to be significant livestock feed items, and revising specific tolerance nomenclatures for aluminum tris (O-ethylphosphonate), clethodim, flumetsulam, and fluridone. In addition, EPA is removing several expired tolerances for aluminum tris (O-ethylphosphonate), etofenprox, propyzamide, and tebufenozide.

II. Background

A. What action is the agency taking?

In the Federal Register of July 28, 2010 (75 FR 44184) (FRL-8834-1), EPA issued a proposal to revise tolerance expressions for a number of pesticide active ingredients, including the insecticides chlorethoxyfos, clofentezine, cyromazine, etofenprox, fenbutatin-oxide, fosthiazate, propetamphos, and tebufenozide, the fungicides aluminum tris (O-ethylphosphonate) and fenarimol; the herbicides butylate, clethodim, clomazone, fenoxaprop-ethyl, flumetsulam, flumiclorac pentyl, fluridone, fomesafen, glufosinate ammonium, lactofen, propyzamide, quinclorac, and pyridate; and the fungicide/bactericide oxytetracycline. Also, EPA proposed to revoke the tolerances for aluminum tris (O-ethylphosphonate) on pineapple fodder and forage because they are not considered to be significant livestock feed items, and revise specific tolerance nomenclatures for aluminum tris (O-ethylphosphonate), clethodim, flumetsulam, and fluridone. In addition, EPA announced that the Agency would remove several expired tolerances for aluminum tris(O-ethylphosphonate), etofenprox, propyzamide, and tebufenozide. Also, the proposal of July 28, 2010 provided a 60-day comment period which invited public comment for consideration and for support of tolerance retention under FFDCA standards.

Since the proposal of July 28, 2010 (75 FR 44184), which included proposals to revise the tolerance expressions for fenarimol and fomesafen among other actions concerning multiple active ingredients, the introductory texts containing the tolerance expressions for fenarimol in 40 CFR 180.421(a) and fomesafen in 40 CFR 180.433(a) wererevised to describe measurement and coverage of the tolerances in the Federal Register of September 17, 2010 (75 FR 56892) (FRL-8844-6), and March 9, 2011 (76 FR 12877) (FRL-8858-5), respectively. Consequently, because no further actions on fenarimol and fomesafen are needed, none is taken herein.

In this final rule, EPA is revising tolerance expressions for aluminum tris (O-ethylphosphonate), butylate, chlorethoxyfos, clethodim, clofentezine, clomazone, cyromazine, etofenprox, fenbutatin-oxide, fenoxaprop-ethyl, flumetsulam, flumiclorac pentyl, fluridone, fosthiazate, glufosinate ammonium, lactofen, oxytetracycline, propetamphos, propyzamide, pyridate, quinclorac, and tebufenozide. The revisions are in accordance with current Agency practice to describe more clearly the measurement and scope or coverage of tolerances, including applicable metabolites and degradates. The revisions do not substantively change the tolerance or, in any way, modify the permissible level of residues permitted by the tolerance. Also, EPA is revoking the tolerances for aluminum tris (O-ethylphosphonate) on pineapple fodder and forage because they are not considered to be significant livestock feed items, and therefore the tolerances are no longer needed. In addition, EPA is revising specific tolerance nomenclatures for aluminum tris (O-ethylphosphonate), clethodim, flumetsulam, and fluridone. Also, EPA is removing several expired tolerances for aluminum tris (O-ethylphosphonate), etofenprox, propyzamide, and tebufenozide.

In response to the proposal published in the Federal Register of July 28, 2010 (75 FR 44184), EPA received no comments during the 60-day public comment period. Therefore, with the exception of fenarimol, EPA is finalizing the amendments proposed concerning these pesticide active ingredients in the Federal Register of July 28, 2010 (75 FR 44184). For a detailed discussion of the Agency's rationale for the revocation of tolerances, revision of tolerance expressions and tolerance nomenclatures, refer to the proposed rule of July 28, 2010 (75 FR 44184).

In addition, the Agency is making the following revisions in this final rule relating to chemical nomenclature to more accurately describe the substances at issue. None of the revisions changes which chemicals are subject to the tolerance expression in which they are contained. Also, because the Agency published a final rule in the Federal Register on December 8, 2010 (75 FR 76284) (FRL-8853-8) that resulted in 40 CFR 180.1 being changed so that a cross-reference, which deals with regional registrations in paragraph (c), was redesignated from § 180.1(m) to § 180.1(l), the Agency is making the following revisions in this final rule relating to cross-referencing § 180.1(l) in multiple sections for paragraph (c). Although these changes were not included in the proposed rule, under section 553(b)(3)(B) of the Administrative Procedure Act EPA finds there is good cause to include these changes in the final rule without further notice and comment because the changes have no practical impact on the use of or exposure to the chemicals.

1. Clomazone. The Agency inadvertently omitted two brackets in the chemical nomenclature for clomazone. Consequently, EPA is revising the nomenclature for clomazone in 40 CFR 180.425(a) from “2-(2-chlorophenyl)methyl-4,4-dimethyl-3-isoxazolidinone” to “2-[(2-chlorophenyl)methyl]-4,4-dimethyl-3-isoxazolidinone.”

2. Glufosinate ammonium. The Agency did not propose to revise the chemical nomenclature for the metabolites of glufosinate to be more consistent with the nomenclature for the parent compound. Consequently, EPA is Start Printed Page 23492revising the nomenclature for the metabolites of glufosinate to be more consistent with the parent compound in 40 CFR 180.473(a) from “2-acetamido-4-methylphosphinicobutanoic acid” to “2-(acetylamino)-4-(hydroxymethylphosphinyl)butanoic acid” and “3-methylphosphinicopropionic acid” to “3-(hydroxymethylphosphinyl)propionic acid;” and in 40 CFR 180.473(d) from “3-methylphosphinicopropionic acid” to “3-(hydroxymethylphosphinyl)propionic acid.” This change is being made so that the nomenclatures of the parent ingredient and its metabolites will be consistent.

3. Aluminum tris (O-ethylphosphonate), fenbutatin-oxide, lactofen, and propyzamide. The Agency did not propose to cross-reference 40 CFR 180.1(l) in paragraph (c) for aluminum tris (O-ethylphosphonate), fenbutatin-oxide, lactofen, and propyzamide. Consequently, EPA is revising 40 CFR 180.415(c), 180.362(c), 180.432(c), and 180.317(c), by cross-referencing 40 CFR 180.1(l), to be more consistent with the final rule of December 8, 2010 (75 FR 76284) (FRL-8853-8).

B. What is the Agency's authority for taking this action?

EPA may issue a regulation establishing, modifying, or revoking tolerances under FFDCA section 408(e).

C. When do these actions become effective?

These actions, revisions of specific tolerance expressions, revocation of the tolerances for aluminum tris (O-ethylphosphonate) on pineapple fodder and forage, and revision of specific commodity terminologies (tolerance nomenclatures) become effective on the date of publication of this final rule in the Federal Register.

Any commodities listed in the regulatory text of this document that are treated with the pesticides subject to this final rule, and that are in the channels of trade following the tolerance revocations, shall be subject to FFDCA section 408(1)(5), as established by FQPA. Under this unit, any residues of these pesticides in or on such food shall not render the food adulterated so long as it is shown to the satisfaction of the Food and Drug Administration that:

1. The residue is present as the result of an application or use of the pesticide at a time and in a manner that was lawful under FIFRA.

2. The residue does not exceed the level that was authorized at the time of the application or use to be present on the food under a tolerance or exemption from tolerance. Evidence to show that food was lawfully treated may include records that verify the dates that the pesticide was applied to such food.

III. International Residue Limits

In making its tolerance decisions, EPA seeks to harmonize U.S. tolerances with international standards whenever possible, consistent with U.S. food safety standards and agricultural practices. EPA considers the international maximum residue limits (MRLs) established by the Codex Alimentarius Commission (Codex), as required by FFDCA section 408(b)(4). The Codex Alimentarius is a joint U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization/World Health Organization food standards program, and it is recognized as an international food safety standards-setting organization in trade agreements to which the United States is a party. EPA may establish a tolerance that is different from a Codex MRL; however, FFDCA section 408(b)(4) requires that EPA explain the reasons for departing from the Codex level.

The Codex has not established a MRL for aluminum tris (O-ethylphosphonate), butylate, chlorethoxyfos, clomazone, fenoxaprop-ethyl, flumetsulam, flumiclorac pentyl, fluridone, fosthiazate, lactofen, oxytetracycline (pesticide use), propetamphos, propyzamide, pyridate, and quinclorac, or MRL on rice grain for etofenprox.

The Codex has established MRLs for clethodim in or on various commodities, some of which are different than the tolerances established for clethodim in the United States. However, the changes made herein in the U.S. tolerance expression for clethodim harmonizes U.S. tolerances with certain Codex MRLs for clethodim. For a detailed discussion, refer to the proposed rule of July 28, 2010 (75 FR 44184).

The Codex has established MRLs for clofentezine, cyromazine, fenbutatin-oxide, glufosinate ammonium, and tebufenozide in or on various commodities. Some MRLs are different than the tolerances established for clofentezine, cyromazine, fenbutatin-oxide, glufosinate ammonium, and tebufenozide in the United States. For a detailed discussion, refer to the proposed rule of July 28, 2010 (75 FR 44184).

IV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

In this final rule, EPA revises tolerance expressions and revokes specific tolerances established under FFDCA section 408. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has exempted these types of actions (i.e., tolerance actions for which extraordinary circumstances do not exist) 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, entitled 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) (Pub. L. 104-4). Nor does it require any special considerations as required by 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 other 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 104-13, section 12(d) (15 U.S.C. 272 note). Pursuant to the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.), the Agency previously assessed whether establishment of tolerances, exemptions from tolerances, raising of tolerance levels, expansion of exemptions, or revocations might significantly impact a substantial number of small entities and concluded that, as a general matter, these actions do not impose a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. These analyses for tolerance establishments and modifications, and for tolerance revocations were published on May 4, 1981 (46 FR 24950) and on December 17, 1997 (62 FR 66020) (FRL-5753-1), respectively, and were provided to the Chief Counsel for Advocacy of the Small Business Administration. Taking into account this analysis, and available information concerning the pesticides listed in this final rule, the Agency Start Printed Page 23493hereby certifies that this final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. In a memorandum dated May 25, 2001, EPA determined that eight conditions must all be satisfied in order for an import tolerance or tolerance exemption revocation to adversely affect a significant number of small entity importers, and that there is a negligible joint probability of all eight conditions holding simultaneously with respect to any particular revocation. (This Agency document is available in the docket of the proposed rule). Furthermore, for the pesticides named in this final rule, the Agency knows of no extraordinary circumstances that exist as to the present revocations that would change EPA's previous analysis. 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 9, 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.

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).
