B. How can I get copies of this document and other related Information?

For each registration and amended registration approval summary (see Unit IV. and Unit V.), EPA has established a unique docket identification (ID) number. Publicly available docket materials are available either in the electronic docket at http://www.regulations.gov, or, if only available in hard copy, at the Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) Regulatory Public Docket in Rm. S-4400, One Potomac Yard (South Bldg.), 2777 S. Crystal Dr., Arlington, VA. The hours of operation of this Docket Facility are from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding legal holidays. The Docket Facility telephone number is (703) 305-5805.

In accordance with section 3(c)(2) of FIFRA, copies of approved labels, lists of data references, data and other scientific information used to support registration or amended registration, except for material specifically protected by section 10 of FIFRA, are also available for public inspection. Requests for data must be made in accordance with the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act and must be addressed to the Freedom of Information Office (A-101), 1200 Pennsylvania Ave. NW., Washington, DC 20460-0001. Such requests should identify the product name and registration number and specify the data or information desired.

Paper copies of the fact sheets, which provide more detail on these registrations and amended registrations, may be obtained from the National Technical Information Service (NTIS), 5285 Port Royal Rd., Springfield, VA 22161.

II. EPA's Approval Process

EPA approved the subject applications in accordance with established procedures. EPA considered the nature of the active ingredients, patterns of use, application methods and rates, and levels and extent of potential exposure. EPA has determined that the active ingredients described in Units IV. and V., when used in accordance with widespread and commonly recognized practice, will not generally cause unreasonable adverse effects on the environment.

III. Public Participation Process

EPA provides an opportunity to comment on certain registration actions (i.e., new active ingredients, first food uses, first residential uses, first outdoor uses, and other actions of significant interest to the public). Each of the applications described in Units IV. and V. was subjected to a 30-day public comment period (http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/regulating/registration-status.html).

One comment was received during the 30-day public participation process occurring immediately prior to the final registration decision. Monsanto Company noted several technical corrections needed to be made to the proposed decision and risk assessment document (i.e., Biopesticides Registration Action Document or “BRAD”) posted for public participation. Monsanto also requested a longer expiration date (five vs. two years) for its registration. In response, EPA updated the BRAD and granted the MON 87701 registration for three years. The revised BRAD is posted to the docket with this notice.
