Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Final rule; technical correction.


EPA issued a final rule in the Federal Register of August 16, 2013, concerning the establishment of a tolerance for imazapic in or on sugarcane, cane.

I. Does this action apply to me?

The Agency included in the August 16, 2013 final rule 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 August 16, 2013 (78 FR 49927) (FRL-9394-8) that established a tolerance for residues of the herbicide imazapic in or on the commodity sugarcane, cane. EPA inadvertently omitted the footnote “There are no US registrations as of August 16, 2013.” in the tolerance table denoting that the established tolerance on sugarcane, cane is an import tolerance only.

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 the addition of a footnote to the tolerance table for the reason stated in Unit II, is not a significant change and does not affect the outcomes of the August 16, 2013 final rule. 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?

All applicable statutory requirements were discussed in the final rule that was published on August 16, 2013.

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 this rule in the Federal Register. This final rule is not a “major rule” as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).
