Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION:

Final rule; technical correction.

SUMMARY:

EPA issued a final rule in the Federal Register of February 3, 2014, establishing an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for residues of α-alkyl-ω-hydroxypoly (oxypropylene) and/or poly (oxyethylene) polymers where the alkyl chain contains a minimum of six carbons, and α-alkyl-ω-hydroxypoly (oxypropylene) and/or poly (oxyethylene) polymers where the alkyl chain contains a minimum of six carbons and a minimum number average molecular weight (in amu) 1,100 when used as an inert ingredient as a surfactant in pesticide formulations in growing crops without limitations. The document inadvertently omitted Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) registry numbers from the regulatory text. This document corrects those errors.

DATES:

This final rule correction is effective May 7, 2014.

ADDRESSES:

The docket for this action, identified by docket identification (ID) number EPA-HQ-OPP-2013-0210, is available at http://www.regulations.gov or at the Office of Pesticide Programs Regulatory Public Docket (OPP Docket) in the Environmental Protection Agency Docket Center (EPA/DC), West William Jefferson Clinton Bldg., Rm. 3334, 1301 Constitution Ave. NW., Washington, DC 20460-0001.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Does this action apply to me?

The Agency included in the Federal Register of February 3, 2014 (79 FR 6092) (FRL-9394-2), a list of those who may be potentially affected by this action.

II. What does this technical correction do?

EPA issued a final rule in the Federal Register of February 3, 2014 (79 FR 6092), that established an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for certain chemicals when used as an inert ingredient as a surfactant in pesticide formulations in growing crops without limitations. In the regulatory text, CAS registry numbers were inadvertently omitted under §§ 180.910, 180.930, 180.940, and 180.960.

III. Why is this correction issued as a final rule?

Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(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 this technical correction final without prior proposal and opportunity for comment, because this document merely corrects technical omissions. EPA finds that this constitutes good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B).

IV. Do any of the statutory and executive order reviews apply to this action?

No. For a detailed discussion concerning the statutory and executive order review, refer to Unit VII. of the February 3, 2014 final rule.

V. Congressional Review Act

Pursuant to the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.), 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 the rule in the Federal Register. This action is not a “major rule” as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).
