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

commodities. Further information on the petition may be obtained 
through the petition summary referenced in this unit.

New Tolerances

     1. PP 9E7606. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-0906). Syngenta Crop Protection, 
Inc., 410 Swing Road, P.O. Box 18300, Greensboro, NC 27419-8300, 
proposes to establish an import tolerance in 40 CFR part 180 for 
residues of the fungicide isopyrazam (SYN520453), in or on banana at 
0.05 parts per million (ppm). An adequate, validated method 
(GRM006.01B) is available for enforcement purposes for the 
determination of residues of isopyrazam, analyzed as the isomers 
SYN534968 and SYN534969, in crop samples. The limit of quantitation 
(LOQ) has been set at 0.005 mg/kg for each isomer (0.01 mg/kg for 
SYN520453 in total). Final determination is by liquid chromatography-
mass spectrometry/mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). An analytical method 
suitable for the determination of residues of the metabolites 
CSCD459488 and CSCD459489 (syn and anti forms respectively) in crop 
samples using an external standardization procedure is also available 
(GRM006.03A). The LOQ has been set at 0.005 mg/kg for both analytes. 
Final determination is by LC-MS/MS. Contact: Shaunta Hill, (703) 347-
8961; hill.shaunta@epa.gov.
     2. PP 9E7632. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-0861). The Interregional Research 
Project No. 4 (IR-4), 500 College Road East, Suite 201W, Princeton, NJ 
08540, proposes to establish a tolerance in 40 CFR part 180 for 
residues of the insecticide spirodiclofen, (3-(2,4-dichlorophenyl)-2-
oxo-1-oxaspiro[4,5]dec-3-en-4-yl 2,2-dimethylbutanoate), in or on the 
bushberry subgroup 13-07B at 4.0 ppm. Adequate analytical methodology 
using LC-MS/MS detection is available for enforcement purposes. 
Contact: Laura Nollen, (703) 305-7390; nollen.laura@epa.gov.
     3. PP 9E7642. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-0890). The Interregional Research 
Project No. 4 (IR-4), 500 College Road East, Suite 201W, Princeton, NJ 
08540, in cooperation with Chemtura Corp., 199 Benson Rd (2-5), 
Middlebury, CT 06749, proposes to establish tolerances in 40 CFR part 
180 for residues of the insecticide bifenazate, (1-methylethyl 2-(4-
methoxy[1,1'-biphenyl]-3-yl)hydrazinecarboxylate) and diazinecarboxylic 
acid, 2-(4-methoxy-[1,1'-biphenyl]-3-yl), 1-methylethyl ester 
(expressed as bifenazate), in or on sugar apple, cherimoya, atemoya, 
custard apple, ilama, soursop, and biriba at 1.5 ppm; avocado at 7.0 
ppm; fruit, small, vine climbing subgroup 13-07F, except fuzzy kiwi 
fruit at 0.75 ppm; and berry, low growing, subgroup 13-07G at 1.5 ppm. 
Chemtura Corporation, has developed practical analytical methodology 
for detecting and measuring residues of bifenazate in or on raw 
agricultural commodities. As D3598, a significant metabolite, was found 
to interconvert readily to/from bifenazate, the analytical method was 
designed to convert all residues of D3598 to the parent compound 
(bifenazate) for analysis. The method, ``Determination of Combined 
Bifenazate and D3598 Residues in Sugar Apple'', utilizes reversed phase 
high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) to separate the 
bifenazate from matrix derived interferences, and oxidative coulometric 
electrochemical detection for the identification and quantification of 
this analyte. The lowest level of method validation (LLMV) in this 
study was 0.05 ppm for each analyte. Based on recoveries of samples 
fortified at the LLMV, the limit of detection (LOD) and limit of 
quantitation (LOQ) were calculated as 0.0308 ppm and 0.0923 ppm, 
respectively, for bifenazate and as 0.0332 ppm and 0.0997 ppm, 
respectively, for D3598. Contact: Sidney Jackson, (703) 305-7610;

Amended Tolerances

     1. PP 9E7632. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-0861). The Interregional Research 
Project No. 4 (IR-4), 500 College Road East, Suite 201W, Princeton, NJ 
08540, proposes to amend the tolerances in 40 CFR 180.608 by revising 
the tolerance expression under paragraphs (a)(1) and (a)(2) to read as 
follows: (a)(1). Tolerances are established for residues of the 
insecticide spirodiclofen, including its metabolites and degradates. 
Compliance with the tolerance levels specified is to be determined by 
measuring only spirodiclofen (3-(2,4-dichlorophenyl)-2-oxo-1-
oxaspiro[4,5]dec-3-en-4-yl 2,2-dimethylbutanoate). (a)(2). Tolerances 
are established for residues of the insecticide spirodiclofen, 
including its metabolites and degradates. Compliance with the tolerance 
levels specified is to be determined by measuring only the sum of 
spirodiclofen (3-(2,4-dichlorophenyl)-2-oxo-1-oxaspiro[4,5]dec-3-en-4-

New Tolerance Exemptions

     1. PP 9E7627. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-0046). Joint Inerts Task Force, 
Cluster Support Team 25, EPA Company Number 84866, c/o CropLife 
America, 1156 15th St., NW, Suite 400, Washington, DC 20005, proposes 
to establish an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for 
residues of N-alkyl (C8-C18) primary amines and 
acetate salts (NAPAAS) under 40 CFR 180.910 and 180.930 when used as 
inert ingredients in pesticide formulations, limited to a maximum of 
10% by weight in herbicide products, and 4% by weight in other 
pesticidal products for the following N-alkyl (C8-
C18) primary amines and acetate salts where the alkyl group 
is linear and may be saturated and or unsaturated including: The N-
alkyl (C8-C18) primary amines acetate salts: 
amines, coco alkyl, acetates (61790-57-6); amines, soya alkyl, acetates 
(61790-60-1); amines, hydrogenated tallow alkyl, acetates (61790-59-8);
