II. Background

A. What action is the Agency taking?

The Pesticide Registration Improvement Act of 2003 established a new section 33 of FIFRA creating a registration service fee system for certain types of pesticide applications, establishment of tolerances, and certain other regulatory decisions under FIFRA and the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA). Section 33 also created a schedule of decision review times for applications covered by the service fee system. The Agency began administering the registration service fee system for covered applications received on or after March 23, 2004.

On September 28, 2012, the Pesticide Registration Improvement Extension Act was signed by the President, revising, among other things, FIFRA section 33. The new law reauthorized the service fee system through fiscal year 2017 and established fees and review times for applications received during fiscal years 2013 through 2017. As required by section 33(b)(6)(A) of FIFRA, the registration service fees for covered pesticide registration applications received on or after October 1, 2013, increase by 5% rounding up to the nearest dollar from the fees published in the September 28, 2012 Pesticide Registration Improvement Extension Act.

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

The publication of this fee schedule is required by section 33(b)(6)(C) of FIFRA as amended.

III. Elements of the Fee Schedule

This unit explains how to read the fee schedule tables, and includes a key to terminology published with the table.

A. The Pesticide Registration Improvement Extension Act Fee Schedule

The fee schedule published in the Pesticide Registration Improvement Extension Act of September 28, 2013, identifies the registration service fees and decision times and is organized according to the organizational units of the Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) within EPA. Thereafter, the categories within the organizational unit sections of the table are further categorized according to the type of application being submitted, the use patterns involved, or, in some cases, upon the type of pesticide that is the subject of the application. The fee categories differ by Division. Not all application types are covered by, or subject to, the fee system.

B. Fee Schedule and Decision Review Times

In today's notice, EPA has retained the format of the tables included in the Pesticide Registration Improvement Extension Act of September 28, 2012. The schedules are presented as 18 tables, organized by OPP Division and by type of application or pesticide subject to the fee. Unit IV. presents fee tables for the Registration Division (RD) (6 tables), the Antimicrobials Division (AD) (4 tables), the Biopesticides and Pollution Prevention Division (BPPD) (7 tables), and Inert Ingredients, External Review and Miscellaneous (1 table).

C. How To Read the Tables

1. Each table consists of the following columns:

  • The column titled “EPA No.”' assigns an EPA identifier to each fee category. There are 189 categories spread across the 3 Divisions. There are 63 RD categories, 39 AD categories, 69 BPPD categories, 10 inert categories, and 8 miscellaneous categories. For tracking purposes, OPP has assigned a 3-digit identifier to each category, beginning with RD categories, followed by AD, BPPD, inert and miscellaneous categories. The categories are prefaced with a letter designation indicating which Division of OPP is responsible for applications in that category (R=Registration Division, A=Antimicrobials Division, B=Biopesticides and Pollution Prevention Division, I=inert ingredients, M= miscellaneous).
  • The column titled “CR No.” cross-references the current Congressional Record category number for convenience. However, EPA will be using the categories as numbered in the “EPA No.” column in its tracking systems.
  • The column titled “Action”' describes what registration actions are covered by each category.
  • The column titled “Decision Time” lists the decision times in months for each type of action.
  • The column titled “FY 2014/FY 2015 Registration Service Fee ($)” lists the registration service fee for the action for fiscal year 2014 (October 1, 2013 through September 30, 2014) and fiscal year 2015 (October 1, 2014 through September 30, 2015).
  • Footnote text has been removed to save on Federal Register costs but remains unchanged from what was published in FY 2013. The tables and footnote text will be available in full after October 1 at http://www.epa.gov/​pesticides/​regulating/​fees/​tool/​category-table.html.

2. The following acronyms are used in some of the tables:

  • DART-Dose Adequacy Response Team.
  • DNT-Developmental Neurotoxicity.
  • HSRB-Human Studies Review Board.
  • GW/SW-Ground Water/Surface Water.
  • PHI-Pre-Harvest Interval.
  • PPE-Personal Protective Equipment.
  • REI-Restricted Entry Interval.
  • SAP-FIFRA Scientific Advisory Panel.

IV. PRIA Fee Schedule Tables—Effective October 1, 2013

A. Registration Division (RD)

The Registration Division of OPP is responsible for the processing of pesticide applications and associated tolerance petitions for pesticides that are termed “conventional chemicals,” excluding pesticides intended for antimicrobial uses. The term “conventional chemical” is a term of art that is intended to distinguish synthetic chemicals from those that are of naturally occurring or non-synthetic Start Printed Page 59349origin, synthetic chemicals that are identical to naturally occurring chemicals and microbial pesticides. Tables 1 through 6 cover RD actions.

V. How to Pay Fees

Applicants must submit fee payments at the time of application, and EPA will reject any application that does not contain evidence that the fee has been paid. EPA has developed a Web site at http://www.epa.gov/​pesticides/​fees/​tool/​index.htm to help applicants identify the fee category and the fee. All fees should be rounded up to the whole dollar. Payments may be made by check, bank draft, or money order or online with a credit card or wire transfer.

A. Online

You may pay electronically through the government payment Web site www.pay.gov.

1. From the pay.gov home page, under “Find Public Forms.”

2. Select “search by Agency name.”

3. On the A-Z Index of Forms page, select “E.”

4. Select “Environmental Protection Agency.”

5. From the list of forms, select “Pre-payment of Pesticide Registration Improvement Act Fee.”

6. Complete the form entering the PRIA fee category and fee.

7. Keep a copy of the pay.gov acknowledgement of payment. A copy of the acknowledgement must be printed and attached to the front of the application to assure that EPA can match the application with the payment.

B. By Check or Money Order

All payments must be in United States currency by check, bank draft, or money order drawn to the order of the Environmental Protection Agency. On the check, the applicant must supply in the information line either the registration number of the product or the company number. A copy of the check must accompany the application to the Agency, specifically attached to the front of the application. The copy of the check ensures that payment has been made at the time of application and will enable the Agency to properly connect the payment with the application sent to the Agency.

If you send the Agency a check, it will be converted into an electronic funds transfer (EFT). This means the Agency will copy your check and use the account information on it to electronically debit your account for the amount of the check. The debit from your account will usually occur within 24 hours and will be shown on your regular account statement.

You will not receive your original check back. The Agency will destroy your original check but will keep the copy of it. If the EFT cannot be processed for technical reasons, you authorize the Agency to process the copy in place of your original check. If Start Printed Page 59359the EFT cannot be completed because of insufficient funds, the Agency may try to make the transfer up to two times.

All paper-based payments should be sent to the following address:

  • By U.S. Postal Service. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington Finance Center, FIFRA Service Fees, P.O. Box 979074, St. Louis, MO 63197-9000.
  • By courier or personal delivery. U.S. Bank, Government Lockbox 979074, 1005 Convention Plaza, SL-MO-C2-GL, St. Louis, MO 63197, (314) 418-4990.

VI. How to Submit Applications

Submissions to the Agency should be made at the address given in Unit VII. The applicant should attach documentation that the fee has been paid which may be pay.gov payment acknowledgement or a copy of the check. If the applicant is applying for a fee waiver, the applicant should provide sufficient documentation as described in FIFRA section 33(b)(7) and http://www.epa.gov/​pesticides/​fees/​questions/​waivers.htm. The fee waiver request should be easy to identify and separate from the rest of the application and submitted with documentation that at least 25% of the fee has been paid.

If evidence of fee payment (electronic acknowledgement or copy of check properly identified as to company) is not submitted with the application, EPA will reject the application and will not process it further.

After EPA receives an application and payment, EPA performs a screen on the application to determine that the category is correct and that the proper fee amount has been paid. If either is incorrect, EPA will notify the applicant and require payment of any additional amount due. A refund will be provided in case of an overpayment. EPA will not process the application further until the proper fee has been paid for the category of application or a request for a fee waiver accompanies the application and the appropriate portion of the fee has been paid.

EPA will assign a unique identification number to each covered application for which payment has been made. EPA notifies the applicant of the unique identification number. This information is sent by email if EPA has either an email address on file or an email address is provided on the application.

VII. Addresses for Applications

New covered applications should be identified in the title line with the mail code REGFEE.

  • By U.S. Postal Service mail. Document Processing Desk (REGFEE), Office of Pesticide Programs (7504P), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 1200 Pennsylvania Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20460-0001.
