affected. The North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) 

codes have been provided to assist you and others in determining 

whether this action might apply to certain entities. If you have any 

questions regarding the applicability of this action to a particular 

entity, consult the person listed at the end of the pesticide petition 

summary of interest.



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 atypical 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 0E7704. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2010-0311). Interregional Research 

Project Number 4 (IR-4), 681 US Highway 1 South, North 

Brunswick, NJ 08902, proposes to establish a tolerance in 40 CFR part

    4. PP 9E7538. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-0066). Croda Inc., 315 Cherry Lane, 

New Castle, DE 19720, proposes to establish an exemption from the 

requirement of a tolerance for residues of alkoxylated glycerides used 

to formulate pesticides applied to growing crops or to raw commodities 

after harvest. Croda Inc., is petitioning that alkoxylated glycerides 

be exempt from the requirement of a tolerance based upon their 

compliance with the low risk polymer criteria per 40 CFR 723.250. 

Therefore, an analytical method to determine residues in raw 

agricultural commodities has not been proposed. No residue chemistry 

data or environmental fate data are presented in the petition as the 

Agency does not generally require some or all of the listed studies to 

rule on the exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for a low 

risk polymer inert ingredient. Contact: Kerry Leifer, (703) 308-8811,
