Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Notice; extension of comment period.


EPA issued a notice in the Federal Register of October 22, 2014, concerning the removal of certain chemical substances from the current listing of inert ingredients approved for use in pesticide products because the inert ingredients are no longer used in any registered pesticide product. This document extends the comment period for 60 days, from November 21, 2014, to January 20, 2015. Pesticide registrants and other stakeholders potentially impacted by the EPA proposal requested an extension on the comment period stating that more time was needed to confirm the chemical substances against the registrations. EPA grants the extension request to provide stakeholders with sufficient time to conduct the necessary record verifications.


Comments, identified by docket identification (ID) number EPA-HQ-OPP-2014-0558, must be received on or before January 20, 2015.


Follow the detailed instructions provided under ADDRESSES in the Federal Register document of October 22, 2014 (79 FR 63120) (FRL-9916-22).
