7 CFR Part 205

[Doc. No. AMS-NOP-09-0074; NOP-09-01FR]
RIN 0581-AC96


National Organic Program (NOP); Sunset Review (2012); Correction

AGENCY: Agricultural Marketing Service, USDA.

ACTION: Correcting amendments.

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

SUMMARY: This document contains a correction to the final regulations 
published on June 6, 2012 (77 FR 33290). These regulations pertain to 
the 2012 Sunset Review of substances on the U.S. Department of 
Agriculture's (USDA) National List of Allowed and Prohibited Substances 
(National List). A technical error was inadvertently published in the 
final rule and requires correction. This document corrects the final 
regulations by revising the listing for ``colors'' at 7 CFR 205.606(d).

DATES: Effective on July 30, 2012.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Melissa Bailey, Ph.D., Director, 
Standards Division, Telephone: (202) 720-3252; Fax: (202) 205-7808.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On June 6, 2012, the Agricultural Marketing 
Service (AMS) published a final rule (77 FR 33290) to address the 2012 
Sunset Review of substances on the U.S. Department of Agriculture's 
(USDA) National List of Allowed and Prohibited Substances (National 
List).
    This rule amended the restrictive annotation to the listing for 
colors at 7 CFR 205.606(d). As published, the modification to the 
introductory text for this listing for colors at Sec.  205.606(d) 
inadvertently removed paragraphs (d)(1) through (d)(19). These 
paragraphs are necessary to identify the specific nonorganic colors 
that can be used as ingredients in processed products labeled as 
``organic'' if organic forms are not commercially available. This 
document corrects the final regulations by reinserting paragraphs 
(d)(1) through (19).

List of Subjects in 7 CFR Part 205

    Administrative practice and procedure, Agriculture, Animals, 
Archives and records, Imports, Labeling, Organically produced products, 
Plants, Reporting and recordkeeping requirements, Seals and insignia, 
Soil conservation.

    Accordingly, 7 CFR part 205 is corrected by making the following 
correcting amendments:
