II. Background

    The Agency has issued a Reregistration Eligibility Decision (RED)
document for the pesticidal active ingredient 1,3-dichloropropene.
Under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act, as
amended in 1988, EPA is conducting an accelerated reregistration
program to reevaluate existing pesticides to make sure they meet
current scientific and regulatory standards. The data base to support
the reregistration of the chemical 1,3-dichloropropene is substantially
complete. EPA has determined that all currently registered products
containing 1,3-dichloropropene as an active ingredient are eligible for
    All registrants of products containing 1,3-dichloropropene have
been sent the RED and Fact Sheet and must respond to the labeling
requirements and the product specific data requirements within 8 months
of receipt. These products will not be reregistered until adequate
product specific data have been submitted and all necessary product
label changes are implemented. Products containing both 1,3-
dichloropropene and chloropicrin, will not be reregistered until the
applicable uses of the active ingredient chloropicrin are found
eligible for reregistration.
    The reregistration program is being conducted under congressionally
mandated time frames, and EPA recognizes both the need to make timely
reregistration decisions and to involve the public. Therefore, EPA is
issuing the RED as a final document with a 60-day comment period.
Although the 60-day public comment period does not affect the
registrant's response due date, it is intended to provide an
opportunity for public input and a mechanism for initiating any
necessary amendments to the RED. All comments will be carefully
considered by the Agency and if any of those comments impact on the
RED, EPA will issue an amendment to the RED and publish a Federal
Register notice announcing its availability.
