To help address potential environmental justice issues, the Agency seeks information on any groups or segments of the population who, as a result of their location, cultural practices, or other factors, may have atypical or disproportionately high and adverse human health impacts or environmental effects from exposure to the pesticides discussed in this document, compared to the general population.

II. What action is the Agency taking?

EPA is requesting the establishment or modification of regulations in 40 CFR part 180 for residues of pesticide chemicals in or on various food commodities.

The Agency is taking public comment on the requests before responding to the petitioners. EPA is not proposing any particular action at this time. EPA has determined that the pesticide petitions described in this document contain the data or information prescribed in FFDCA section 408(d)(2), 21 U.S.C. 346a(d)(2); however, EPA has not fully evaluated the sufficiency of the submitted data at this time or whether the data support granting of the pesticide petitions. After considering the public comments, EPA intends to evaluate whether and what action may be warranted. Additional data may be needed before EPA can make a final determination on these pesticide petitions.

Pursuant to 40 CFR 180.7(f), a summary of each of the petitions that are the subject of this document, prepared by the petitioner, is included in a docket EPA has created for each rulemaking. The docket for each of the petitions is available at http://www.regulations.gov.

As specified in FFDCA section 408(d)(3), 21 U.S.C. 346a(d)(3), EPA is publishing notice of the petitions so that the public has an opportunity to comment on these requests for the establishment or modification of regulations for residues of pesticides in or on food commodities. Further information on the petitions may be obtained through the petition summaries referenced in this unit.

Amended Tolerance Exemptions for Inerts (Except PIPS)

2. PP IN-10990. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2016-0755). Spring Trading Company, 203 Dogwood Trail, Magnolia, TX 77354 on behalf of Sasol Chemicals (USA), 12120 Wickchester Lane, Houston, TX 77079, requests to amend an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance under 40 CFR 180.960 for residues of 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 of 1,000 when used as an inert ingredient in pesticide formulations to include poly(oxy-1,2-ethanediyl), α-isooctyl-ω-hydroxy (CAS Reg. No. 61723-78-2). The petitioner believes no analytical method is needed because it is not required for an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance. Contact: RD.

Amended Tolerances for Non-Inerts

1. PP 6E8528. EPA-HQ-OPP-2017-0035. IR-4 Project Headquarters, 500 College Road East, Suite 201W, Princeton, New Jersey 08540, requests to amend tolerances in 40 CFR part 180.431 for residues of the herbicide clopyralid by removing the established tolerances for residues of the herbicide clopyralid (3,6-dichloro-2-pyridinecarboxylic acid), including its metabolites and degradates, from its application in the acid form or in the form of its salts, to be determined by measuring only clopyralid in or on raw agricultural commodities: Apple at 0.05 ppm, Asparagus at 1.0 ppm, Beet, garden tops at 3.0 ppm, Beet, sugar, tops at 3.0 ppm, Brassica, head and stem, subgroup 5A at 2.0 ppm, Brassica, leafy greens, subgroup 5B at 5.0 ppm, Cranberry at 4.0 ppm, Fruit, stone, group 12 at 0.5 ppm, Strawberry at 4.0 ppm, Turnip, greens at 4.0 ppm and Canola, seed at 3.0 ppm, upon establishment of “New Tolerances” petition-for under PP 6E8528 mentioned above. Gas chromatography/electron-capture detection (GC/ECD) method is available in The Pesticide Analytical Manual Vol. II to enforce the tolerance expression for clopyralid in plant commodities. Contact RD.

2. PP 6E8532. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2017-0072). Interregional Research Project No. 4, IR-4, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, 500 College Road East, Suite 201-W, Princeton, NJ 08540, requests to amend the tolerances in 40 CFR 180.498 for residues of sulfentrazone (N-[2,4-dichloro-5-[4-(difluoromethyl)-4,5-dihydro-3-methyl-5-oxo-1H-1,2,4-triazol-1-yl]phenyl]methanesulfonamide) and its metabolites HMS (N-(2,4-dichloro-5-(4-(difluoromethyl)-4,5-dihydro-3-hydroxymethyl-5-oxo-1H-1,2,4-triazol-1-yl)phenyl)methanesulfonamide) and DMS (N-(2,4-dichloro-5-(4-(difluoromethyl)-4,5-dihydro-5-oxo-1H-1,2,4-triazol-1-yl)phenyl)methanesulfonamide, calculated as the stoichiometric equivalent of sulfentrazone by removing the tolerances for Asparagus at 0.15 ppm; Brassica, head and stem, subgroup 5A at 0.20 ppm; Brassica, leafy greens, subgroup 5B at 0.40 ppm; Nut, tree, group 14 at 0.15 ppm; Pistachio at 0.15 ppm; and Turnip, tops at 0.60 ppm. The analytical enforcement method for sulfentrazone was used with minor modification that eliminated several clean-up and derivatization steps that was required for GC/MSD but not for LC/MS/MS. The analytical method for sulfentrazone involves separate analyses for parent and its metabolites. The parent is analyzed by evaporation and reconstitution of the sample prior to analysis by LC/MS/MS GC/ECD. The metabolites samples were refluxed in the presence of acid and cleaned up with solid phase extraction prior to analysis by LC/MS/MS. Contact: RD.

3. PP 7F8543. EPA-HQ-OPP-2017-0156. Nichino America, Inc., 4550 New Linden Hill Road, Suite 501, Wilmington, DE 19808-2951, requests to amend the existing citrus fruits (crop group 10-10) tolerances in 40 CFR part 180.675 for residues of the insecticide tolfenpyrad as follows: (1) Reduce the established tolerance for the citrus fruit RAC from 1.5 to 0.9 parts per million (ppm); (2) reduce the established tolerance for dried citrus pulp from 8.0 to 3.0 ppm; (3) reduce the established tolerance for citrus oil from 70 to 27 ppm; and (4) reduce the PHI of 14 days to a PHI of 3 days. An acceptable high performance liquid chromatography method with tandem mass spectrometry detection (LC/MS/MS) for enforcement of tolfenpyrad residue tolerances in/on plant commodities exists. The method limit of quantification is 0.01 ppm. The method for plant commodities has been adequately validated and has undergone acceptable independent laboratory validation (ILV). An acceptable LC/MS/MS method also exists for determining residues of tolfenpyrad and its metabolites, PT-CA, OH-PT-CA, and PCA in milk, bovine meat, kidney, liver and fat. The method for livestock commodities has been adequately validated and has undergone acceptable ILV. Acceptable multiresidue methods test data have been submitted for tolfenpyrad per se. The data indicate that the PAM multiresidue methods are not suitable for determination of tolfenpyrad. Metabolite PT-CA is the major residue in livestock matrices and has been identified as a residue of concern for tolerance enforcement in livestock commodities. This metabolite was not tested through the appropriate FDA multiresidue PAM I method; however, based on the structural similarity between tolfenpyrad and PT-CA, it is anticipated that the multiresidue method protocols would not be suitable for analysis of PT-CA.
