II. Petition for Tolerance

    In the Federal Register of September 4, 2009 (74 FR 45848) (FRL-
8434-4), EPA issued a notice pursuant to section 408(d)(3) of FFDCA, 21 
U.S.C. 346a(d)(3), announcing the filing of a pesticide petition (PP 
8E7502) by Syngenta Crop Protection, Inc., P.O. Box 18300, Greensboro, 
NC, 27409. The petition requested that 40 CFR 180.532 be amended by 
establishing tolerances for residues of the fungicide cyprodinil, in or 
on canola, seed, imported at 0.03 parts per million (ppm). That notice 
referenced a summary of the petition prepared by Syngenta Crop 
Protection, Inc., 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.

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 cyprodinil including 
exposure resulting from the tolerances established by this action. 
EPA's assessment of exposures and risks associated with cyprodinil 
follows.

[[Page 22242]]

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.
    Cyprodinil has low acute toxicity via the oral, dermal, and 
inhalation routes. Cyprodinil is mildly irritating to the eyes and 
negligibly irritating to the skin. It is a dermal sensitizer.
    The major target organs of cyprodinil are the liver in both rats 
and mice and the kidney in rats. Liver effects observed consistently in 
subchronic and chronic studies in rats and mice include increased liver 
weights, increases in serum clinical chemistry parameters associated 
with adverse effects on liver function, hepatocyte hypertrophy, and 
hepatocellular necrosis. Adverse kidney effects include tubular lesions 
and inflammation following subchronic exposure of male rats. The 
hematopoietic system also appeared to be a target of cyprodinil, 
causing mild anemia in rats exposed subchronically. Chronic effects in 
dogs were limited to decreased body-weight gain, decreased food 
consumption and decreased food efficiency. There was no evidence of 
increased susceptibility in the developmental rat or rabbit study 
following in utero exposure or in the 2-generation reproduction study 
following prenatal or postnatal exposure. No neurotoxicity studies with 
cyprodinil are available. However, there was no evidence of 
neuropathological effects in the available oral-toxicity studies.
    There was no evidence of carcinogenic potential in either the rat 
chronic toxicity/carcinogenicity or mouse carcinogenicity studies and 
no concern for mutagenicity.
    Toxicological points of departure (PODs) were selected for dietary 
and drinking water exposure scenarios. A POD for acute dietary exposure 
was selected for the population subgroup females 13 to 49 years old 
based on a developmental toxicity study in rabbits. No acute endpoint 
was identified for the remaining population subgroups. The POD for 
chronic dietary exposure was selected from a chronic/carcinogenicity 
feeding study in rats.
    Specific information on the studies received and the nature of the 
adverse effects caused by cyprodinil 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 document ``Cyprodinil Human Health Risk 
Assessment for Proposed New Use of Cyprodinil on Imported Canola 
Seed'', pp. 24 through 27, in docket ID number EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-0551.

B. Toxicological Points of Departure/Levels of Concern

    Once a pesticide's toxicological profile is determined, EPA 
identifies the toxicological POD and levels of concern (LOC) to use in 
evaluating the risk posed by human exposure to the pesticide. For 
hazards that have a threshold below which there is no appreciable risk, 
the toxicological POD is used as the basis for derivation of reference 
values for risk assessment. PODs are developed based on a careful 
analysis of the doses in each toxicological study to determine the dose 
at which no adverse effects are observed (the NOAEL) and the lowest 
dose at which adverse effects of concern are identified (the LOAEL). 
Uncertainty/safety factors are used in conjunction with the POD to 
calculate a safe exposure level - generally referred to as a 
population-adjusted dose (PAD) or a reference dose (RfD) - and a safe 
margin of exposure (MOE). 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 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 cyprodinil used for 
human risk assessment is shown in the Table of this unit.

C. Exposure Assessment

    1. Dietary exposure from food and feed uses. In evaluating dietary 
exposure to cyprodinil, EPA considered exposure under the petitioned-
for tolerances as well as all existing cyprodinil tolerances in 40 CFR 
180.532. EPA assessed dietary exposures from cyprodinil in food as 
follows:

[[Page 22243]]

    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.
    Such effects were identified for cyprodinil. In estimating acute 
dietary exposure, EPA used food consumption information from the United 
States Department of Agriculture (USDA) 1994-1996 and 1998 Nationwide 
Continuing Surveys of Food Intake by Individuals (CSFII). As to residue 
levels in food, EPA did not use anticipated residue and/or percent crop 
treated (PCT) information in the acute dietary assessment for 
cyprodinil. Tolerance level residues and 100 PCT were assumed for all 
existing and proposed food commodities.
    ii. Chronic exposure. In conducting the chronic dietary exposure 
assessment EPA used the food consumption data from the USDA 1994-1996 
and 1998 CSFII. As to residue levels in food, EPA did not use 
anticipated residue and/or PCT information in the chronic dietary 
assessment for cyprodinil. Tolerance level residues and 100 PCT were 
assumed for all existing and proposed food commodities.
    iii. Cancer. EPA determines whether quantitative cancer exposure 
and risk assessments are appropriate for a food-use pesticide based on 
the weight of the evidence from cancer studies and other relevant data. 
Cancer risk is quantified using a linear or nonlinear approach. If 
sufficient information on the carcinogenic mode of action is available, 
a threshold or non-linear approach is used and a cancer RfD is 
calculated based on an earlier noncancer key event. If carcinogenic 
mode of action data are not available, or if the mode of action data 
determines a mutagenic mode of action, a default linear cancer slope 
factor approach is utilized.
     Based on the data summarized in Unit III.A., EPA has concluded 
that cyprodinil is not likely to be carcinogenic to humans. Therefore, 
a dietary exposure assessment for the purpose of assessing cancer risk 
is unnecessary.
    iv. Anticipated residue and PCT information. EPA did not use 
anticipated residue and/or PCT information in the dietary assessment 
for cyprodinil. Tolerance level residues and/or 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 cyprodinil in drinking water. These simulation models 
take into account data on the physical, chemical, and fate/transport 
characteristics of cyprodinil. 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.
    EPA estimated the surface water exposure levels using the the 
Pesticide Root Zone Model/Exposure Analysis Modeling System Ground 
water estimates were calculated using the Tier 1 Screening 
Concentration in Ground Water model. Estimated Drinking Water 
Concentrations for cyprodinil and its metabolite CGA-249287 were 
derived based on a maximum application rate of 0.469 pound active 
ingredient / per acre (lb a.i./A (applied 3 times/season)) on grapes 
assuming minimum intervals between application. The concentrations have 
been adjusted with the Percent Crop Area (PCA) of 0.87 for a national 
assessment.
    Estimated drinking water concentrations of cyprodinil are:
    i. 35 parts per billion (ppb) for surface water and 0.11 ppb for 
ground water for acute exposures; and
    ii. 20 ppb for surface water and 0.11 ppb for ground water for 
chronic non-cancer exposures.
    Modeled estimates of drinking water concentrations were directly 
entered into the dietary exposure model. For acute dietary risk 
assessment, the water concentration value of 35 ppb was used to assess 
the contribution to drinking water. For chronic dietary risk 
assessment, the water concentration of value 20 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). Cyprodinil is not 
registered for any specific use patterns that would result in 
residential exposure.
    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 does not have, at this time, available data to determine 
whether cyprodinil has a common mechanism of toxicity with other 
substances. Unlike other pesticides for which EPA has followed a 
cumulative risk approach based on a common mechanism of toxicity, EPA 
has not made a common mechanism of toxicity finding as to cyprodinil 
and any other substances and, cyprodinil does not appear to produce a 
toxic metabolite produced by other substances which have tolerances in 
the U. S. For the purposes of this tolerance reassessment action, 
therefore, EPA has not assumed that cyprodinil has 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 
the policy statements released by EPA's OPP concerning common mechanism 
determinations and procedures for cumulating effects from substances 
found to have a common mechanism on EPA's website at http://www.epa.gov/fedrgstr/EPA_PEST/2002/January/Day_16/.

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 Safety 
Factor (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. No increase in 
susceptibility was seen in developmental toxicity studies in rat and 
rabbit or reproductive toxicity studies in the rat. Toxicity to 
offspring was observed at dose levels the same or greater than those 
causing maternal or parental toxicity. Based on the results of 
developmental and reproductive toxicity studies, there is not a concern 
for increased qualitative and/or quantitative susceptibility following 
in utero exposure to cyprodinil.
    3. Conclusion. EPA has determined that reliable data show the 
safety of infants and children would be adequately protected if the 
FQPA SF were reduced to 1X. That decision is based on the following 
findings:
    i. The toxicity database for cyprodinil is complete except for a 
Neurotoxicity Battery (870.6200 a and b) and an Immunotoxicity Study 
(870.7800) which

[[Page 22244]]

are required under the revised 40 CFR part 158 Toxicology Data 
Requirements. Based on the results of the available toxicity studies 
for cyprodinil, however, there is no evidence of neurotoxicity or 
immunotoxicity, and EPA does not believe that these required studies 
will demonstrate that the PADs need to be lowered.
    ii. There is no indication that cyprodinil 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 cyprodinil 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. EPA made conservative (protective) assumptions in estimating 
dietary exposure and in the and drinking water modeling used to assess 
exposure to cyprodinil in drinking water. These assessments will not 
underestimate the exposure and risks posed by cyprodinil.

E. Aggregate Risks and Determination of Safety

    EPA determines whether acute and chronic dietary pesticide 
exposures are safe by comparing aggregate exposure estimates to the 
acute PAD (aPAD) and chronic PAD (cPAD). For linear cancer risks, EPA 
calculates the lifetime probability of acquiring cancer 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 appropriate PODs to ensure 
that an adequate MOE exists.
    1. Acute risk. Using the exposure assumptions discussed in this 
unit for acute exposure, the acute dietary exposure from food and water 
to cyprodinil will occupy 4% of the aPAD for females 13 to 49 years 
old, the population group receiving the greatest exposure.
    2. Chronic risk. Using the exposure assumptions described in this 
unit for chronic exposure, EPA has concluded that chronic exposure to 
cyprodinil from food and water will utilize 70% of the cPAD for 
children 1 to 2 years old, the population group receiving the greatest 
exposure. There are no residential uses for cyprodinil.
    3. Aggregate cancer risk for U.S. population. Based on the lack of 
evidence of carcinogenicity in mice and rats at doses that were judged 
to be adequate to assess the carcinogenic potential, cyprodinil is not 
expected to pose a cancer risk to humans.
    4. 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 cyprodinil residues.

IV. Other Considerations

A. Analytical Enforcement Methodology

    Adequate enforcement methodology (namely, high performance liquid 
chromatography with ultraviolet detector (HPLC/UV)) is available to 
enforce the tolerance expression on plant commodities. In addition, a 
high performance liquid chromatography with mass spectrometry (HPLC/MS) 
method (Method No. GRM010.01A) is available for determining residues of 
cyprodinil and its metabolite CGA- 304075 (free+conjugated) in 
livestock commodities.
    These methods 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

    There are no established or proposed Codex, Canadian or Mexican 
MRLs for cyprodinil on canola.

V. Conclusion

    Therefore, a tolerance is established for residues of cyprodinil, 
in or on canola, seed, at 0.03 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).
