referenced a summary of the petition prepared by E.I. du Pont de 
Nemours and Company, Dupont Crop Protection, the registrant, which is 
available to the public in the docket, http://www.regulations.gov. 
There were no comments received in response to the notice of filing.
    EPA has determined that tolerances are not required for several 
petitioned commodities. Additionally, the Agency is revising tolerances 
for several proposed individual and group commodities and is amending 
multiple established tolerances. Finally, EPA is deleting several 
existing tolerances. The details on the specific changes being made and 
the reasons for these changes are explained in Unit IV.D.

III. Aggregate Risk Assessment and Determination of Safety

    Section 408(b)(2)(A)(i) of FFDCA allows EPA to establish a 
tolerance (the legal limit for a pesticide chemical residue in or on a 
food) only if EPA determines that the tolerance is ``safe.'' Section 
408(b)(2)(A)(ii) of FFDCA defines ``safe'' to mean that ``there is a 
reasonable certainty that no harm will result from aggregate exposure 
to the pesticide chemical residue, including all anticipated dietary 
exposures and all other exposures for which there is reliable 
information.'' This includes exposure through drinking water and in 
residential settings, but does not include occupational exposure. 
Section 408(b)(2)(C) of FFDCA requires EPA to give special 
consideration to exposure of infants and children to the pesticide 
chemical residue in establishing a tolerance and to ``ensure that there 
is a reasonable certainty that no harm will result to infants and 
children from aggregate exposure to the pesticide chemical 
residue....''
    Consistent with section 408(b)(2)(D) of FFDCA, and the factors 
specified in section 408(b)(2)(D) of FFDCA, EPA has reviewed the 
available scientific data and other relevant information in support of 
this action. EPA has sufficient data to assess the hazards of and to 
make a determination on aggregate exposure for chlorantraniliprole 
including exposure resulting from the tolerances established by this 
action. EPA's assessment of exposures and risks associated with 
chlorantraniliprole follows.

A. Toxicological Profile

    EPA has evaluated the available toxicity data and considered its 
validity, completeness, and reliability as well as the relationship of 
the results of the studies to human risk. EPA has also considered 
available information concerning the variability of the sensitivities 
of major identifiable subgroups of consumers, including infants and 
children.
     Chlorantraniliprole is not genotoxic, neurotoxic, immunotoxic, 
carcinogenic, or teratogenic. Chlorantraniliprole has been found to 
have low acute toxicity by the oral, dermal, and inhalation routes of 
exposure and has little to no irritation effect on the eyes or skin. 
Additionally, chlorantraniliprole is not a dermal sensitizer. There was 
only one toxicity study in the toxicology database that indicated that 
Chlorantraniliprole yielded an adverse effect (18-month oral/mouse). 
This study was used to establish a point of departure based on 
hepatocellular effects for chronic risk.
    Specific information on the studies received and the nature of the 
adverse effects caused by chlorantraniliprole as well as the no-
observed-adverse-effect-level (NOAEL) and the lowest-observed-adverse-
effect-level (LOAEL) from the toxicity studies can be found at http://www.regulations.gov in the document; ``Chlorantraniliprole (DPX-E2Y45). 
Human Health Risk Assessment for Section 3 Registration Request to 
Expand Uses of Coragen, Altacor, and Dermacor X-100 Labels on Various 
Field, Vegetable, and Fruit Crops,'' page 31 in docket ID number EPA-
HQ-OPP-2009-0261.

B. Toxicological Endpoints

    For hazards that have a threshold below which there is no 
appreciable risk, a toxicological point of departure (POD) is 
identified as the basis for derivation of reference values for risk 
assessment. The POD may be defined as the highest dose at which no 
adverse effects are observed (the NOAEL) in the toxicology study 
identified as appropriate for use in risk assessment. However, if a 
NOAEL cannot be determined, the lowest dose at which adverse effects of 
concern are identified (the LOAEL) or a benchmark dose (BMD) approach 
is sometimes used for risk assessment. Uncertainty/safety factors (UFs) 
are used in conjunction with the POD to take into account uncertainties 
inherent in the extrapolation from laboratory animal data to humans and 
in the variations in sensitivity among members of the human population 
as well as other unknowns. Safety is assessed for acute and chronic 
dietary risks by comparing aggregate food and water exposure to the 
pesticide to the acute population adjusted dose (aPAD) and chronic 
population adjusted dose (cPAD). The aPAD and cPAD are calculated by 
dividing the POD by all applicable UFs. Aggregate short-term, 
intermediate-, and chronic-term risks are evaluated by

[[Page 5529]]

comparing food, water, and residential exposure to the POD to ensure 
that the margin of exposure (MOE) called for by the product of all 
applicable UFs is not exceeded. This latter value is referred to as the 
level of concern (LOC).
    For non-threshold risks, the Agency assumes that any amount of 
exposure will lead to some degree of risk. Thus, the Agency estimates 
risk in terms of the probability of an occurrence of the adverse effect 
greater than that expected in a lifetime. For more information on the 
general principles EPA uses in risk characterization and a complete 
description of the risk assessment process, see http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/factsheets/riskassess.htm.
    A summary of the toxicological endpoints for chlorantraniliprole 
used for human risk assessment can be found at http://www.regulations.gov in the document; ``Chlorantraniliprole (DPX-E2Y45).

Field, Vegetable, and Fruit Crops,'' in docket ID number EPA-HQ-OPP-
2009-0261.

C. Exposure Assessment

    1. Dietary exposure from food and feed uses. In evaluating dietary 
exposure to chlorantraniliprole, EPA considered exposure under the 
petitioned-for tolerances as well as all existing chlorantraniliprole 
tolerances in 40 CFR 180.628. EPA assessed dietary exposures from 
chlorantraniliprole in food as follows:
    i. Acute exposure. Quantitative acute dietary exposure and risk 
assessments are performed for a food-use pesticide, if a toxicological 
study has indicated the possibility of an effect of concern occurring 
as a result of a 1-day or single exposure.
    No such effects were identified in the toxicological studies for 
chlorantraniliprole; therefore, a quantitative acute dietary exposure 
assessment is unnecessary.
    ii. Chronic exposure. In conducting the chronic dietary exposure 
assessment EPA used the food consumption data from the USDA 1994-1996 
and 1998 Continuing Survey of Food Intake by Individual (CSFII). As to 
residue levels in food, EPA assumed all foods for which there are 
tolerances were treated and contain tolerance-level residues.
    iii. Cancer. Chlorantraniliprole was classified as ``Not likely to 
be Carcinogenic to Humans'' based on evidence showing no treatment-
related tumors in the submitted chronic and oncogenicity studies in 
rats and mice, and subchronic studies in mice, dogs, and rats, and no 
mutagenic concerns in the genotoxicity studies. Therefore, an exposure 
assessment to evaluate cancer risk is unnecessary.
    iv. Anticipated residue and percent crop treated (PCT) information. 
EPA did not use anticipated residue or PCT information in the dietary 
assessment for chlorantraniliprole. Tolerance level residues and 100 
PCT were assumed for all food commodities.
    2. Dietary exposure from drinking water. The Agency used screening 
level water exposure models in the dietary exposure analysis and risk 
assessment for chlorantraniliprole in drinking water. These simulation 
models take into account data on the physical, chemical, and fate/
transport characteristics of chlorantraniliprole. Further information 
regarding EPA drinking water models used in pesticide exposure 
assessment can be found at http://www.epa.gov/oppefed1/models/water/index.htm.
    Based on the Pesticide Root Zone Model/Exposure Analysis Modeling 
System (PRZM/EXAMS) and Screening Concentration in Ground Water (SCI-
GROW) models, the estimated drinking water concentrations (EDWCs) of 
chlorantraniliprole for chronic exposures for non-cancer assessments 
are estimated to be 3.65 ppb for surface water and 1.06 ppb for ground 
water.
    Modeled estimates of drinking water concentrations were directly 
entered into the dietary exposure model. For chronic dietary risk 
assessment, the water concentration of value 3.65 ppb was used to 
assess the contribution to drinking water.
    3. From non-dietary exposure. The term ``residential exposure'' is 
used in this document to refer to non-occupational, non-dietary 
exposure (e.g., for lawn and garden pest control, indoor pest control, 
termiticides, and flea and tick control on pets).
    Chlorantraniliprole is currently registered for the following uses 
that could result in residential exposures: Turfgrass and ornamental 
plants. Residential exposure could occur for short-term and 
intermediate-term exposures however, due to the lack of toxicity 
identified for short- and intermediate-term durations via relevant 
routes of exposure, no risk is expected from these exposures. 
Additional information on residential exposure assumptions can be found 
at www.regulations.gov (Docket ID EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-0261, pages 24 
through 25).
    4. Cumulative effects from substances with a common mechanism of 
toxicity. Section 408(b)(2)(D)(v) of FFDCA requires that, when 
considering whether to establish, modify, or revoke a tolerance, the 
Agency consider ``available information'' concerning the cumulative 
effects of a particular pesticide's residues and ``other substances 
that have a common mechanism of toxicity.''
    EPA has not found chlorantraniliprole to share a common mechanism 
of toxicity with any other substances, and chlorantraniliprole does not 
appear to produce a toxic metabolite produced by other substances. For 
the purposes of this tolerance action, therefore, EPA has assumed that 
chlorantraniliprole does not have a common mechanism of toxicity with 
other substances. For information regarding EPA's efforts to determine 
which chemicals have a common mechanism of toxicity and to evaluate the 
cumulative effects of such chemicals, see EPA's website at http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/cumulative.

D. Safety Factor for Infants and Children

    1. In general. Section 408(b)(2)(C) of FFDCA provides that EPA 
shall apply an additional tenfold (10X) margin of safety for infants 
and children in the case of threshold effects to account for prenatal 
and postnatal toxicity and the completeness of the database on toxicity 
and exposure unless EPA determines based on reliable data that a 
different margin of safety will be safe for infants and children. This 
additional margin of safety is commonly referred to as the FQPA SF. In 
applying this provision, EPA either retains the default value of 10X, 
or uses a different additional safety factor when reliable data 
available to EPA support the choice of a different factor.
    2. Prenatal and postnatal sensitivity. There were no effects on 
fetal growth or postnatal development up to the limit dose of 1,000 
milligrams/kilogram/day (mg/kg/day) in rats or rabbits in the 
developmental or 2-generation reproduction studies. Additionally, there 
were no treatment related effects on the numbers of litters, fetuses 
(live or dead), resorptions, sex ratio, or post-implantation loss and 
no effects on fetal body weights, skeletal ossification, and external, 
visceral, or skeletal malformations or variations.
    3. Conclusion. EPA has determined that reliable data show the 
safety of infants and children would be adequately protected if the 
FQPA SF were to reduced 1X. That decision is based on the following 
findings:
    i. The toxicity database for chlorantraniliprole is complete and 
considered adequate for this risk assessment (including 40 CFR 158.500 
requirements for dermal toxicity,

[[Page 5530]]

immunotoxicity, and acute/subchronic neurotoxicity effective December 
26, 2007).
    ii. There is no indication that chlorantraniliprole is a neurotoxic 
chemical and there is no need for a developmental neurotoxicity study 
or additional UFs to account for neurotoxicity.
    iii. There is no evidence that chlorantraniliprole results in 
increased susceptibility in in utero rats or rabbits in the prenatal 
developmental studies or in young rats in the 2-generation reproduction 
study.
    iv. There are no residual uncertainties identified in the exposure 
databases. The chronic dietary food exposure assessment utilized 
tolerance-level residues and 100 PCT data. EPA made conservative 
(protective) assumptions in the ground and surface water modeling used 
to assess exposure to chlorantraniliprole in drinking water. Due to the 
lack of toxicity identified for short-term and intermediate-term 
durations via relevant routes of exposure, no risk is expected from 
postapplication exposure of children as well as incidental oral 
exposure of toddlers. These assessments will not underestimate the 
exposure and risks posed by chlorantraniliprole.

E. Aggregate Risks and Determination of Safety

    EPA determines whether acute and chronic pesticide exposures are 
safe by comparing aggregate exposure estimates to the acute population 
adjusted dose (aPAD) and chronic population adjusted dose (cPAD). The 
aPAD and cPAD represent the highest safe exposures, taking into account 
all appropriate SFs. EPA calculates the aPAD and cPAD by dividing the 
POD by all applicable UFs. For linear cancer risks, EPA calculates the 
probability of additional cancer cases given the estimated aggregate 
exposure. Short-term, intermediate-term, and chronic-term risks are 
evaluated by comparing the estimated aggregate food, water, and 
residential exposure to the POD to ensure that the MOE called for by 
the product of all applicable UFs is not exceeded.
    1. Acute risk. An acute aggregate risk assessment takes into 
account exposure estimates from acute dietary consumption of food and 
drinking water. No adverse effect resulting from a single-oral exposure 
was identified and no acute dietary endpoint was selected. Therefore, 
chlorantraniliprole is not expected to pose an acute risk.
    2. Chronic risk. Using the exposure assumptions described in this 
unit for chronic exposure, EPA has concluded that chronic exposure to 
chlorantraniliprole from food and water will utilize 5% of the cPAD for 
children 1 to 2 years old, the population group receiving the greatest 
exposure. Based on the explanation in Unit III.C.3., regarding 
residential use patterns, chronic residential exposure to residues of 
chlorantraniliprole is not expected.
    3. Short-term risk. Short-term aggregate exposure takes into 
account short-term residential exposure plus chronic exposure to food 
and water (considered to be a background exposure level).
    Although short-term residential exposure could occur with the use 
of chlorantraniliprole, no toxicological effects resulting from short-
term dosing were observed. Therefore, the aggregate risk is the sum of 
the risk from food and water and will not be greater than the chronic 
aggregate risk.
    4. Intermediate-term risk. Intermediate-term aggregate exposure 
takes into account intermediate-term residential exposure plus chronic 
exposure to food and water (considered to be a background exposure 
level).
    Although intermediate-term residential exposure could result from 
the use of chlorantraniliprole, no toxicological effects resulting from 
intermediate-term dosing were observed. Therefore, the aggregate risk 
is the sum of the risk from food and water and will not be greater than 
the chronic aggregate risk.
    5. Aggregate cancer risk for U.S. population. Based on evidence 
showing no treatment-related tumors in the submitted chronic and 
oncogenicity studies in rats and mice, and subchronic studies in mice, 
dogs, and rats, and no mutagenic concerns in the genotoxicity studies, 
chlorantraniliprole is not expected to pose a cancer risk to humans.
    6. Determination of safety. Based on these risk assessments, EPA 
concludes that there is a reasonable certainty that no harm will result 
to the general population, or to infants and children from aggregate 
exposure to chlorantraniliprole residues.

IV. Other Considerations

A. Analytical Enforcement Methodology

    Adequate enforcement methodology, Liquid Chromatography Mass 
Spectrometry (LC/MS/MS), is available to enforce the tolerance 
expression. The method may be requested from: Chief, Analytical 
Chemistry Branch, Environmental Science Center, 701 Mapes Rd., Ft. 
Meade, MD 20755-5350; telephone number: (410) 305-2905; e-mail address: 
residuemethods@epa.gov.

B. International Residue Limits

    Regarding international Maximum Residue Levels (MRLs) for 
chlorantraniliprole, all tolerances are harmonized (tolerances and MRLs 
have equivalent residue levels and tolerance expressions) or U.S. 
tolerances are higher than Codex based on submitted data and 
differences in U.S. use patterns. U.S. tolerances exceed Codex MRLs for 
the following commodities: Grapes, edible offal (mammalian), milks, 
meat (from mammals), pome fruits, stone fruits and eggs. All other MRLs 
are harmonized with Codex.

C. Response to Comments

    There were no comments received in response to the notice of 
filing.

D. Revisions to Petitioned-For Tolerances

    EPA has revised the proposed tolerance levels of 
chlorantraniliprole on the following commodities: cacao bean from 0.15 
ppm to 0.08 ppm; cacao bean, roasted bean from 1.4 ppm to 0.8 ppm; 
cacao bean, chocolate from 3.0 ppm to 1.5 ppm; cacao bean, cocoa powder 
from 3.0 ppm to 1.5 ppm; coffee, green bean from 0.5 ppm to 0.4 ppm; 
coffee, instant from 2.5 ppm to 2.0 ppm; egg from 0.1 ppm to 0.2 ppm; 
herbs and spices, subgroup 19B, spices from 7.0 ppm to 14 ppm; animal 
feed, nongrass, group 18, forage from 13.0 ppm to 25 ppm; animal feed, 
nongrass, group 18, hay from 45 ppm to 90 ppm; alfalfa, seed from 3.5 
ppm to 7.0 ppm; poultry, fat from 0.02 ppm to 0.01 ppm; rice, hulls 
from 0.3 ppm to 0.4 ppm. EPA revised the tolerance levels based on 
analysis of the residue field trial data using the Agency's tolerance 
spreadsheet in accordance with the Agency's Guidance for Setting 
Pesticide Tolerances Based on Field Trial Data.
    The commodity, fruit, pome, group 11 is being revised to read 
fruit, pome, group 11, except mayhaw. A separate tolerance of 0.6 ppm 
is being established for mayhaw. The commodity, fruit, stone, group 12 
is being revised to read fruit, stone, group 12, except cherry, 
chickasaw plum, and damson plum. Separate tolerances of 2.0 ppm are 
being established for cherry, sweet; cherry, tart; plum, chickasaw; 
plum, damson. for these two groups the EPA has determined that for 
those commodities in these groups considered small fruit it is not 
approriatate to establish the higher tolerance because they have 
differing use directions with a longer phi that will result in lower 
residue levels.
    The petitioner requested tolerances on forage, fodder, and straw of 
cereal

[[Page 5531]]

grains, group 16, forage and fodder at 25.0 ppm; and forage, fodder, 
and straw of cereal grains, group 16, hay and straw at 90.0 ppm. 
However, no tolerances were proposed for cereal grains, crop group 15. 
Without a tolerance for cereal grains, crop group 15, tolerances for 
cereal grains, crop group 16, forage, fodder and straw are not 
appropriate. However, based on submitted data and translation, the 
tolerance of 14 ppm can be established for the following individual 
crop group 16 commodities: corn, field, forage; corn, field, stover; 
corn, pop, forage; corn, pop, stover; corn, sweet, forage, and corn, 
sweet, stover.
    Based upon the re-examination of the available ruminant feeding 
study, EPA is establishing tolerance levels of chlorantraniliprole on 
the following commodities: Hog, fat at 0.02 ppm and hog, meat 
byproducts at 0.02 ppm.
    The current established tolerance of 0.01 ppm for residues of 
chlorantraniliprole on potatoes is revoked upon the establishment of 
tolerances on vegetables, tuberous and corm, subgroup 1C at 0.01 ppm. 
The petitioner requested tolerances be established for fruit, small 
vine climbing, subgroup 13-07D at 2.5 ppm.
    The representative commodities for this subgroup are grape and 
fuzzy kiwifruit. Data are only available for grape. Therefore, the EPA 
is establishing a tolerance for fruit, small vine climbing, subgroup 
13-07F at 2.5 ppm which is a subset of subgroup 13-07D. The current 
established tolerance of 1.2 ppm for residues of chlorantraniliprole on 
grapes is revoked upon the establishment of tolerances on fruit, small 
vine climbing, subgroup 13-07F at 2.5 ppm.
    Finally, EPA has revised the tolerance expression to clarify (1) 
that, as provided in FFDCA section 408(a)(3), the tolerance covers 
metabolites and degradates of chlorantraniliprole not specifically 
mentioned; and (2) that compliance with the specified tolerance levels 
is to be determined by measuring only the specific compounds mentioned 
in the tolerance expression.

V. Conclusion

    Therefore, tolerances are established for residues of

     Additionally, tolerances are amended for residues of 
chlorantraniliprole in or on apple, wet pomace from 0.60 ppm to 2.5 
ppm; cattle, fat from 0.01 ppm to 0.3 ppm; cattle, meat from 0.01 ppm

    Although requests were made to amend residues of 
chlorantraniliprole in or on Crop Groups 11 and 12, the following 
individual commodities required separate tolerances. Tolerances are 
established for residues of chlorantraniliprole in or on cherry, sweet 
at 2.0 ppm; cherry, tart at 2.0 ppm; mayhaw at 0.6 ppm; plum, chickasaw 
at 2.0 ppm and plum, damson at 2.0 ppm.
    In addition, requests were made to establish tolerances of 
chlorantraniliprole in or on Crop Group 15, however adequate data were 
only submitted to support the establishment of tolerances for specific 
commodities. tolerances are established for residues of 
chlorantraniliprole in or on corn, field, forage at 14.0 ppm; corn, 
field, stover at 14.0 ppm; corn, pop, forage at 14.0 ppm; corn, pop, 
stover at 14.0 ppm; corn, sweet, forage at 14.0 ppm and corn, sweet, 
stover at 14.0 ppm.
    This regulation deletes a tolerance in or on grape at 1.2 ppm and 
potato at 0.01 ppm. Additionally, the following time-limited section 18 
emergency exemption tolerances are deleted: corn, sweet, cannery waste 
at 6.0 ppm; corn, sweet, forage at 6.0 ppm; corn, sweet, kernel plus 
cob with husks removed at 0.01 ppm; corn, sweet, stover at 6.0 ppm; 
milk at 0.03 ppm; rice, grain at 0.10 ppm and rice, straw at 0.25 ppm. 
Finally, this regulation deletes time-limited tolerances for indirect/
inadvertent residues of chlorantraniliprole in or on animal feed, 
nongrass, group 18 at 0.20 ppm; cowpea, forage at 0.20 ppm; cowpea, hay 
at 0.20 ppm; field pea, hay at 0.20 ppm; field pea, vine at 0.20 ppm; 
grass, forage, fodder and hay, group 17 at 0.20 ppm; okra at 0.70 ppm; 
strawberry at 1.20 ppm and sugarcane at 0.20 ppm.

VI. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    This final rule establishes tolerances under section 408(d) of 
FFDCA in response to a petition submitted to the Agency. The Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) has exempted these types of actions from 
review under Executive Order 12866, entitled Regulatory Planning and 
Review (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993). Because this final rule has been 
exempted from review under Executive Order 12866, this final rule is 
not subject to Executive Order 13211, entitled Actions Concerning 
Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or 
Use (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001) or Executive Order 13045, entitled 
Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks 
(62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997). This final rule does not contain any 
information collections subject to OMB approval under the Paperwork 
Reduction Act (PRA), 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., nor does it require any 
special considerations under Executive Order 12898, entitled Federal 
Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and 
Low-Income Populations (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994).
    Since tolerances and exemptions that are established on the basis 
of a petition under section 408(d) of FFDCA, such as the tolerance in 
this final rule, do not require the issuance of a proposed rule, the 
requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) (5 U.S.C. 601 et 
seq.) do not apply.
    This final rule directly regulates growers, food processors, food 
handlers, and food retailers, not States or tribes, nor does this 
action alter the relationships or distribution of power and 
responsibilities established by Congress in the preemption provisions 
of section 408(n)(4) of FFDCA. As such, the Agency has determined that 
this action will not have a substantial direct effect on States or 
tribal governments, on the relationship between the national government 
and the States or tribal governments, or on the distribution of power 
and responsibilities among the various levels of government or between 
the Federal Government and Indian tribes. Thus, the Agency has 
determined that Executive Order 13132, entitled Federalism (64 FR 
43255, August 10, 1999) and Executive Order 13175, entitled 
Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments (65 FR 
67249, November 9, 2000) do not apply to this final rule. In addition, 
this final rule does not impose any enforceable duty or contain any 
unfunded mandate as described under Title II of the Unfunded Mandates 
Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA) (Public Law 104-4).
    This action does not involve any technical standards that would 
require Agency consideration of voluntary consensus standards pursuant 
to section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement 
Act of 1995 (NTTAA), Public Law 104-113, section 12(d) (15 U.S.C. 272 
note).

VII. Congressional Review Act

    The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., generally 
provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating 
the rule must submit a rule report to each House of the Congress and to 
the Comptroller General of the United States. 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 final rule in the Federal 
Register. This final rule is not a ``major rule'' as defined by 5 
U.S.C. 804(2).

Sec.  180.628  Chlorantraniliprole; tolerances for residues.

    (a) General. Tolerances are established for residues of the 
insecticide chlorantraniliprole, including its metabolites and 
degradates, in or on the commodities in the table below. Compliance 
with the tolerance levels specified below is to be determined by 
measuring only chlorantraniliprole, 3-bromo-N-[4-chloro-2-methyl-6-
[(methylamino)carbonyl]phenyl]-1-(3-chloro-2-pyridinyl)-1H-pyrazole-5-
carboxamide.
