ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

40 CFR Part 180

[EPA-HQ-OPP-2007-0099; FRL-8849-2]


Flubendiamide; Pesticide Tolerances; Technical Correction

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Final rule; technical correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: EPA issued a final rule in the Federal Register of August 18, 
2010, concerning the establishment, reassessment, modification and 
revoking of tolerances for residues of flubendiamide, in or on multiple 
food and livestock commodities. This document is being issued to 
correct typographical errors in the referenced rule, specifically, to 
revise incorrect tolerance values for the established tolerances for 
corn, field, grain; corn, field, stover; corn, sweet, stover; and 
cotton gin byproducts.

DATES: This final rule is effective November 5, 2010.

ADDRESSES: EPA has established a docket for this action under docket 
identification (ID) number EPA-HQ-OPP-2007-0099. All documents in the

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Does this action apply to me?

    The Agency included in the final rule a list of those who may be 
potentially affected by this action. If you have questions regarding 
the applicability of this action to a particular entity, consult the 
person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.

II. What does this technical correction do?

    Currently, 40 CFR 180.639(a)(1) provides an incorrect tolerance 
value for the established tolerances for corn, field, grain (0.02 ppm); 
corn, field, stover (0.15 ppm); corn, sweet, stover (0.25 ppm); and 
cotton gin byproducts (0.60 ppm). As supported by submitted field trial 
and processing data, these tolerance values should be revised to 0.03 
ppm; 15 ppm; 25 ppm; and 60 ppm, respectively. Therefore, EPA is 
correcting the entries for corn, field, grain; corn, field, stover; 
corn, sweet, stover; and cotton gin byproducts in the table in Sec.  
180.369(a)(1).

III. Why is this correction issued as a final rule?

    Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 
553(b)(3)(B), provides that, when an Agency for good cause finds that 
notice and public procedure are impracticable, unnecessary or contrary 
to the public interest, the Agency may issue a final rule without 
providing notice and an opportunity for public comment. EPA has 
determined that there is good cause for making this technical 
correction final without prior proposal and opportunity for comment, 
because this final rule corrects a number of typographical errors and 
does not otherwise change the original requirements of the final rule. 
EPA finds that this constitutes good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B).

IV. Do any of the statutory and Executive Order reviews apply to this 
action?

    This final rule corrects a number of typographical errors and does 
not otherwise change the original requirements of the final rule. As a 
typographical correction, this action is not subject to the statutory 
and Executive Order review requirements. For information about the 
statutory and Executive Order review requirements as they related to 
the final rule, see Unit VI. in the Federal Register of August 18, 2010 
(75 FR 50914) (FRL-8836-2).

V. 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).
