person listed under the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.

II. What Does this Correction Do?

    In the Federal Register of July 8, 2009, (74 FR 32456), EPA's 
Office of Pesticide Programs issued an exemption from the requirement 
of a tolerance for ``polyglyceryl phthalate ester of coconut oil fatty 
acids'' pursuant to a petition by the Joint Inserts Task Force, Cluster 
Support Team 23. The petition requested that an exemption from the 
requirement of a tolerance for residues of polyglyceryl phthalate ester 
of coconut oil fatty acids, including fatty acid coco polymers with 
glyceryl and phthalic anhydride (CAS No. 67746-02-5) and coconut oil 
polymer with glyceryl and phthalic anhydride (CAS No. 66070-87-9). This 
technical correction corrects the name of the inert ingredient and the 
CAS numbers.

III. Why is this Correction Issued as a Final Rule?

    Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 
553(b)(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 today's technical 
correction final without prior proposal and opportunity for comment, 
because EPA is merely correcting language that was inadvertently 
mistyped in the previously published final rule. The correct inert 
ingredient names and CAS Numbers were present in the Supplementary 
Information Section of the July 8, 2009 final rule but were mistyped in 
the tolerance exemption table. EPA finds that this constitutes good 
cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B).

IV. Do Any of the Statutory and Executive Order Reviews Apply to this 

    The statutory and Executive order reviews were included in the July 
8, 2009 final rule.

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).
