II. Did EPA Approve the Application?

information on social, economic, and environmental benefits to be 
derived from use. Specifically, the Agency has considered the nature of 
the chemical and its pattern of use, application methods and rates, and 
level and extent of potential exposure. Based on these reviews, the 
Agency was able to make basic health and safety determinations which 
show that use of l-Carvone when used in accordance with widespread and 
commonly recognized practice, will not generally cause unreasonable 
adverse effects to the environment.
