[OPP-300572; FRL-5755-9]
RIN 2070-AB78

 
Consolidation of Certain Food and Feed Additive Tolerance 
Regulations

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

 ACTION: Final rule; Technical amendments.

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

SUMMARY: This rule transfers certain of the pesticide food and feed 
additive regulations that are now in 40 CFR parts 185 and 186 to part 
180. EPA is consolidating these regulations because as a matter of law 
all of the pesticide tolerances are now considered to be regulated 
under FFDCA section 408 as amended by the Food Quality Protection Act 
(Pub. L. 104-17) and they no longer need to be separate.

DATES: This rule becomes effective January 14, 1998. Written objects 
and hearing requests must be received by March 16, 1998.

ADDRESSES: Written objections and hearing requests, identified by the 
docket control number [OPP-300572], must be submitted to: Hearing Clerk 
(1900), Environmental Protection Agency, Rm. M3708, 401 M St., SW., 
Washington, DC 20460. Fees accompanying objections and hearing requests 
shall be labeled ``Tolerance Petition Fees'' and forwarded to: EPA 
Headquarters Accounting Operations Branch, OPP (Tolerance Fees), P.O. 
Box 360277M, Pittsburgh, PA 15251. A copy of any objections and hearing 
requests filed with the Hearing Clerk identified by the docket control 
number, [OPP-300572], must also be submitted to: Public Information and 
Records Integrity Branch, Information Resources and Services Division 
(7502C), Office of Pesticide Programs, Environmental Protection Agency, 
401 M St., SW., Washington, DC 20460. In person, bring a copy of 
objections and hearing requests to Rm. 1132, CM #2, 1921 Jefferson 
Davis Hwy., Arlington, VA.
    A copy of objections and hearing requests filed with the Hearing 
Clerk may be submitted electronically by sending electronic mail (e-
mail) to: opp-docket@epamail.epa.gov. Copies of electronic objections 
and hearing requests must be submitted as an ASCII file avoiding the 
use of special characters and any form of encryption. Copies of 
electronic objections and hearing requests will also be accepted on 
disks in WordPerfect 5.1/6.1 or ASCII file format. All copies of 
electronic objections and hearing requests must be identified by the 
docket control number [OPP-300572]. No Confidential Business 
Information (CBI) should be submitted through e-mail. Copies of 
electronic objections and hearing requests on this rule may be filed 
online at many Federal Depository Libraries.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: By mail, Jeffrey Morris, Special 
Review Branch (7508W), Office of Pesticide Programs, Environmental 
Protection Agency, 401 M St., SW., Washington, DC 20460. Office 
location, telephone number, and e-mail: 3rd floor, Crystal Station, 
2800 Crystal Drive, Arlington, VA 22202, (703) 308-8029; e-mail: 
morris.jeffrey@epamail.epa.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Office of Pesticide Programs is 
transferring some of the Tolerance regulations now in parts 185 and 186 
to part 180. EPA is moving these sections because, whereas in the past 
tolerances for processed food and animal feeds regulated under section 
409 of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA, 21 U.S.C. 301 et 
seq.) were placed under parts 185 and 186, as a matter of law all 
tolerances in these sections are now considered to be regulated under 
FFDCA section 408 as amended by the Food Quality Protection Act (Pub. 
L. 104-17), and therefore belong under part 180.

I. Public Record and Electronic Submissions

    EPA has established a record for this rulemaking under docket 
control number [OPP-300572] (including any comments and data submitted 
electronically). A public version of this record, including printed, 
paper versions of electronic comments, which does not include any 
information claimed as CBI, is available for inspection from 8:30 a.m. 
to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding legal holidays. The public 
record is located in Room 1132 of the Public Information and Records 
Integrity Branch, Information Resources and Services Division (7502C), 
Office of Pesticide Programs, Environmental Protection Agency, Crystal 
Mall #2, 1921 Jefferson Davis Highway, Arlington, VA.
    Electronic comments may be sent directly to EPA at:


[[Page 2164]]


    opp-docket@epamail.epa.gov.

    Electronic comments must be submitted as an ASCII file avoiding the 
use of special characters and any form of encryption.
    The official record for this rulemaking, as well as the public 
version, as described above will be kept in paper form. Accordingly, 
EPA will transfer any copies of objections and hearing requests 
received electronically into printed, paper form as they are received 
and will place the paper copies in the official rulemaking record which 
will also include all comments submitted directly in writing. The 
official rulemaking record is the paper record maintained at the 
Virginia address in ``ADDRESSES'' at the beginning of this document.

II. Regulatory Assessment Requirements

    This final rule does not impose any requirements. It only 
implements a technical correction to the Code of Federal Regulations 
(CFR). As such, this action does not require review by the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) under Executive Order 12866, entitled 
Regulatory Planning and Review (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993), the 
Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA), 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., or Executive 
Order 13045, entitled Protection of Children from Environmental Health 
Risks and Safety Risks (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997). For the same 
reason, it does not require any action under Title II of the Unfunded 
Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA) (Pub. L. 104-4), Executive Order 
12875, entitled Enhancing the Intergovernmental Partnership (58 FR 
58093, October 28, 1993), or Executive Order 12898, entitled Federal 
Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and 
Low-Income Populations (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994). In addition, 
since this type of action does not require any proposal, no action is 
needed under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) (5 U.S.C. 601 et 
seq.).

III. Submission to Congress and the General Accounting Office

    Under 5 U.S.C. 801(a)(1)(A), as added by the Small Business 
Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, the Agency has submitted 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 General Accounting Office prior to publication of this rule in 
today's Federal Register. This is a technical correction to the Code of 
Federal Regulations and is not a major rule as defined by 5 U.S.C. 
804(2).

    (2) Tolerances for residues of O,O-diethyl S-2-(ethylthio)ethyl 
phosphorodithioate, calculated as demeton, in ingredients for livestock 
feed are established as follows:
    (i) 5 parts per million in dehydrated sugar beet pulp when present 
therein as a result of the application of the pesticide to the growing 
agricultural crop, provided that, if residues of demeton are also 
present, the total of both residues shall not exceed 5 parts per 
million.
    (ii) 5 parts per million in pineapple bran when present therein as 
a result of the application of the insecticide in the production of 
pineapples.
    (b) Section 18 emergency exemptions. [Reserved]
    (c) Tolerances with regional registrations. Tolerances with 
regional registration, as defined in Sec. 180.1(n), are established for

phosphorodithioate and its cholinesterase-inhibiting metabolites, 
calculated as demeton, in or on the following raw agricultural 
commodities:
