B. What Should I Consider as I Prepare My Comments for EPA?

    1. Submitting CBI. Do not submit this information to EPA through 
regulations.gov or e-mail. Clearly mark the part or all of the 
information that you claim to be CBI. For CBI information in a disk or 
CD-ROM that you mail to EPA, mark the outside of the disk or CD-ROM as 
CBI and then identify electronically within the disk or CD-ROM the 
specific information that is claimed as CBI. In addition to one 
complete version of the comment that includes information claimed as 
CBI, a copy of the comment that does not contain the information 
claimed as CBI must be submitted for inclusion in the public docket. 
Information so marked will not be disclosed except in accordance with 
procedures set forth in 40 CFR part 2.
    2. Tips for preparing your comments. When submitting comments, 
remember to:
    i. Identify the document by docket ID number and other identifying 
information (subject heading, Federal Register date and page number).
    ii. Follow directions. The Agency may ask you to respond to 
specific questions or organize comments by referencing a Code of 
Federal Regulations (CFR) part or section number.
    iii. Explain why you agree or disagree; suggest alternatives and 
substitute language for your requested changes.
    iv. Describe any assumptions and provide any technical information 
and/or data that you used.
    v. If you estimate potential costs or burdens, explain how you 
arrived at your estimate in sufficient detail to allow for it to be 
reproduced.
    vi. Provide specific examples to illustrate your concerns and 
suggest alternatives.
    vii. Explain your views as clearly as possible, avoiding the use of 
profanity or personal threats.
    viii. Make sure to submit your comments by the comment period 
deadline identified.
    3. Environmental justice. EPA seeks to achieve environmental 
justice, the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of any group, 
including minority and/or low-income populations, in the development, 
implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and 
policies. 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 a typical 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 announcing its receipt of several pesticide petitions filed 
under section 408 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), 
21 U.S.C. 346a, proposing the establishment or modification of 
regulations in 40 CFR part 174 or part 180 for residues of pesticide 
chemicals in or on various food commodities. EPA has determined that 
the pesticide petitions described in this notice contain the data or 
information prescribed in FFDCA section 408(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. 
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 notice, prepared by the petitioner, is 
included in a docket EPA has created for each rulemaking. The docket 
for each of the petitions is available on-line 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 petition so that the public has an 
opportunity to comment on this request for the establishment or 
modification of regulations for residues of pesticides in or on food 
commodities. Further information on the petition may be obtained 
through the petition summary referenced in this unit.

New Tolerances

     1. PP 9E7591. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-713). Interregional Research 
Project Number 4 (IR-4), IR-4 Project, 500 College Rd. East, Suite 
201W, Princeton, NJ 08540, proposes to establish a tolerance in 40 CFR 
part 180 for the combined residues of the fungicide mefenoxam, ( R )- 
and ( S )-2-[(2,6-dimethyl(phenyl)-methoxyacetylamine]-propionic acid 
methyl ester, and its metabolites containing the 2,6 dimethylaniline 
moiety, and N -(2-hydroxy methyl-6-methylphenyl)- N -(methoxyacetyl)-
alanine methyl ester in or on bean, snap, succulent at 0.35 parts per 
million (ppm); caneberry, subgroup 13-07A at 0.80 ppm; bushberry, 
subgroup 13-07B at 2.0 ppm; onion, bulb, subgroup 3-07A at 3.0 ppm; 
onion, green, subgroup 3-07B at 10.0 ppm, and spinach at 8.0 ppm. Snap 
bean and caneberry samples were analyzed for mefenoxam (parent only) 
using a procedure derived from ``Confirmatory Analytical Method for the 
Enantioselective Determination of Residues of Parent Metalaxyl (CGA-
48988) or Mefenoxam (CGA-329351) in Crop Substrates by Chiral High 
Performance Liquid Chromatography with Mass Spectrometric Detection'' 
(Novartis Crop Protection, Inc., Procedure 456-98, March, 1999). Minor 
modifications were made to improve the performance of the method. The 
limit of quantitation (LOQ) for the method is 0.028 ppm for snap beans 
and 0.059 for caneberries. Selected samples from the snap bean and 
caneberry trials were also analyzed with the combined residue method 
that converts everything to N-(2,6-dimethylpheny1)-
N(methoxyacetyl)alanine methyl ester. This served as a bridging study 
for the other samples that were only analyzed for parent.
    The common moiety method was also used for the spinach trials. The 
analytical method used was Ciba-Geigy Corporation Procedure AG-395, 
``Improved Method for the Determination of Total Residues of Metalaxyl 
in Crop as 2,6-dimethylaniline,'' December 1982. This total residue 
method is used for the determination of the combined residues of 
metalaxyl N-(2,6-dimethylpheny1)-N-(methoxyacetyl)alanine methyl ester 
and its metabolites which contain the 2,6-dimethylaniline (2, 6-DMA) 
moiety in crop samples. Contact: Laura Nollen, (703) 305-7390; 
nollen.laura@epa.gov.
    2. PP 9E7594. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-0644). Interregional Research 
Project Number 4 (IR-4), 500 College Rd. East, Suite 201W, Princeton, 
NJ 08540, proposes to establish a tolerance in 40 CFR part 180 for 
residues of the insecticide fenpropathrin, alpha-cyano-3-phenoxy-benzyl 
2,2,3,3-tetramethylcyclopropanecarboxylate in or on guava, acerola, 
feijoa, jaboticaba, passionfruit, starfruit and wax jambu at 1.5 ppm; 
lychee, longan, Spanish lime, pulasan and rambutan at 3.0 ppm; sugar 
apple, atemoya, biriba, cherimoya, custard apple, ilama, and soursop at 
1.0 ppm; and tea at 2.0 ppm. Adequate analytical methodology is 
available to detect and quantify fenpropathrin at residue levels in 
numerous matrices. The methods use solvent extraction and partition 
and/or column chromatography clean-up steps, followed by separation and 
quantitation using capillary gas liquid chromatography (GLC) with flame 
ionization detector (FID). The extraction efficiency has been validated 
using radiocarbon samples from the plant and animal metabolism studies. 
The

[[Page 51599]]

enforcement methods have been validated at independent laboratories and 
by EPA. The limit of quantification (LOQ) for fenpropathrin in raw 
agricultural commodity samples is usually 0.01 ppm. Contact: Laura 
Nollen, (703) 305-7390; nollen.laura@epa.gov.
    3. PP 8F7371. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2008-0732). BASF Corporation, 26 Davis 
Drive, Research Triangle Park, NC 27709, proposes to establish a 
tolerance in 40 CFR part 180 for residues of the fungicide metrafenone 
in or on grapes, fruit at 4.5 ppm; grapes, juice at 0.45 ppm; and 
grapes, raisin at 17 ppm. BASF analytical methods No. FAMS 105-01 ``CL 
375839: Analytical method for the determination of the active 
ingredient in grapes,'' and No. FAMS 106-01 ``CL 4375839: Analytical 
method for the determination of the active ingredient in must and 
wine,'' were developed to determine residues of metrafenone in grapes 
and wine, respectively. Quantitative determination of metrafenone is 
carried out by capillary gas chromatography with an electron capture 
detector (GC/ECD). An independent laboratory validation demonstrated 
good performance of these methods. Contact: Tony Kish, (703) 308-9443; 
kish.tony@epa.gov.
    4. PP 9F7528. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-0672). BASF Corporation, P.O. Box 
13528, Research Triangle Park, NC, 27709, proposes to establish a 
tolerance in 40 CFR part 180 for residues of the fungicide 
pyraclostrobin, carbamic acid, [2-[[[1-(4-chlorophenyl)-1H-pyrazol-3-
yl]oxy]methyl]phenyl]methoxy-, methyl ester and its metabolite methyl-
N-[[[1-(4-chlorophenyl) pyrazol-3-yl]oxy]o-tolyl] carbamate (BF 500-3); 
expressed as parent compound, in or on alfalfa, forage at 9 ppm and 
alfalfa, hay at 27 ppm. In plants the method of analysis is aqueous 
organic solvent extraction, column clean-up and quantitation by liquid 
chromatography/mass spectrometry/mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS). In 
animals the method of analysis involves base hydrolysis, organic 
extraction, column clean-up and quantitation by LC/MS/MS or 
derivatization (methylation) followed by quantitation by gas 
chromatography/MS (GC/MS). Contact: John Bazuin, (703) 305-7381;

leafy petiole, crop group 4B at 6.0 ppm. Adequate analytical 
methodology using liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry/mass 
spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) detection is available for enforcement 
purposes. Contact: Jennifer Gaines, (703) 305-5967; 
gaines.jennifer@epa.gov.

Amended Tolerances

    1. PP 9E7591. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-0713). Interregional Research 
Project Number 4 (IR-4), IR-4 Project, 500 College Rd. East, Suite 
201W, Princeton, NJ 08540, proposes to remove the tolerance in 40 CFR 
180.546 for the combined residues of the fungicide mefenoxam, ( R )- 
and ( S )-2-[(2,6-dimethyl(phenyl)-methoxyacetylamine]-propionic acid 
methyl ester, and its metabolites containing the 2,6 dimethylaniline 
moiety, and N -(2-hydroxy methyl-6-methylphenyl)- N -(methoxyacetyl)-
alanine methyl ester in or on lingonberry at 2.0 ppm. Contact: Laura 
Nollen, (703) 305-7390; nollen.laura@epa.gov.
    2. PP 9E7592. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-0714). Arysta LifeScience North 
America, LLC, 15401 Weston Parkway, Cary, NC 27513, proposes to amend 
the tolerances in 40 CFR 180.560 by establishing a tolerance for the 
combined residues of cloquintocet-mexyl, (acetic acid, [(5-chloro-8-
quinolinyl)oxy-,1-methylhexyl ester) (CAS Reg. No. 99607-70-2) and its 
acid metabolite (5-chloro-8-quinolinoxyacetic acid, also known as CGA-
153433) when used as a pesticide inert ingredient (safener) in 
pesticide formulations containing the herbicide flucarbazone-sodium 
(wheat only), pinoxaden (wheat or barley), clodinafop-propargyl (wheat 
only), or pyroxsulum (wheat only) in or on barley, grain at 0.10 ppm; 
barley, hay at 0.10 ppm; barley, straw at 0.10 ppm; wheat, grain at 
0.10 ppm; wheat, forage at 0.2 ppm; wheat, hay at 0.50 ppm; and wheat, 
straw at 0.10 ppm. The analytical methodology for detecting and 
measuring combined levels of cloquintocet-mexyl and its acid metabolite 
5-chloro-8-quinolinoxylacetic acid has been submitted to the Agency. 
The method is based upon acid hydrolysis extraction, which converts the 
parent and all conjugates to the acid metabolite. The acid metabolite 
is subject to commodity specific clean-up procedures and high 
performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) determination with triple 
stage quadruple mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS). The limit of quantitation 
(LOQ), as demonstrated by the lowest acceptable recovery samples, is 
0.01 ppm for grain and 0.02 ppm for forage, hay and straw. Contact:

pesticide

[[Page 51600]]

formulations of the active ingredient hydrogen peroxide as a post-
harvest treatment to control sprouting. The petitioner believes no 
analytical method is needed because it is proposed that silver nitrate 
be exempt from the requirement for a tolerance for residues. Contact: 
Alganesh Debesai, (703) 308-8353; debesai.alganesh@epa.gov.
    3. PP 9E7586. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-0676). WHITMIRE MICROGEN c/o Landis 
International, Inc., P.O. Box 5126, Valdosta, GA 31603-5126, proposes 
to establish an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for 
residues of isobutane (CAS No. 75-28-5) when used as a pesticide inert 
ingredient in pesticide formulations used in accordance with good 
agricultural practice as an aerosol propellant in pesticide 
formulations used pre- and post-harvest 40 CFR 180.910 and when applied 
to animals 40 CFR 180.930. The petitioner believes no analytical method 
is needed because it is proposed that isobutane be exempt from the 
requirement for a tolerance for residues. Contact: Keri Grinstead, 
(703) 308-8373; grinstead.keri@epa.gov.
    4. PP 9E7595. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-0675). BASF Corporation, 100 Campus 
Dr., Florham Park, NJ 07932, proposes to establish an exemption from 
the requirement of a tolerance for residues of oxirane, 2-methyl-, 
polymer with oxirane, dimethyl ether (CAS No. 61419-46-3) under 40 CFR 
180.960 when used as a pesticide inert ingredient as a surfactant in 
pesticide formulations without limitation. The petitioner believes no 
analytical method is needed because it is proposed that oxirane, 2-
methyl-, polymer with oxirane, dimethyl ether be exempt from the 
requirement of a tolerance for residues. Contact: Keri Grinstead, (703) 
308-8373; grinstead.keri@epa.gov.
    5. PP 9E7599. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-0662). Akzo Nobel Surface Chemistry, 
LLC, 909 Mueller Ave., Chattanooga, TN 37406, proposes to establish an 
exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for residues and requests 
the elimination of the need to establish a maximum permissible level 
for residues of acrylic acid-benzyl methacrylate-1-propanesulfonic 
acid, 2-methyl-2-[1(1-oxo-2-propenyl)amino]-, monosodium salt copolymer 
(CAS No. 1152297-42-1) when used as a pesticide inert ingredient as a 
dispersant in pesticide formulations under 40 CFR 180.960 in or on all 
raw agricultural commodities. The petitioner believes no analytical 
method is needed because this information is generally not required 
when all criteria for polymer exemption under 40 CFR 723.250 are met. 
In addition, Akzo Nobel is petitioning for an exemption from the 
requirement of a tolerance without any numerical limitations. Contact: 
Alganesh Debesai, (703) 308-8353; debesai.alganesh@epa.gov.
