II. Did EPA Conditionally Approve the Application?

    A conditional registration may be granted under section 3(c)(7)(C) 
of FIFRA for a new active ingredient where certain data are lacking, on 
condition that such data are received by the end of the conditional 
registration period and do not meet or exceed the risk criteria set 
forth in 40 CFR 154.7; that use of the pesticide during the conditional 
registration period will not cause unreasonable adverse effects; and 
that use of the pesticide is in the public interest. The Agency has 
considered the available data on the risks associated with the proposed 
use of flutriafol, and information on social, economic, and 
environmental benefits to be derived from such use. Specifically, the 
Agency has considered the nature and its pattern of use, application 
methods and rates, and level and extent of potential exposure. Based on 
these reviews, the Agency was able to make basic health and safety 
determinations which show that use of flutriafol during the period of 
conditional registration will not cause any unreasonable adverse effect 
on the environment, and that use of the pesticide is, in the public 
    Consistent with section 3(c)(7)(C) of FIFRA, the Agency has 
determined that these conditional registrations are in the public 
interest. Use of the pesticides are of significance to the user 
community, and appropriate labeling, use directions, and other measures 
have been taken to ensure that use of the pesticides will not result in 
unreasonable adverse effects to man and the environment.
