[PP 1G3927/T640; FRL 4583-8]
Fenoxaprop-ethyl; Extension of A Temporary Tolerance 
AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
ACTION: Notice.
.
------------------------------------------------------------
SUMMARY: EPA has extended a temporary tolerance for the combined 
residues of the herbicide fenoxaprop-ethyl and its metabolites 
in or on the raw agricultural commodity barley, grain at 0.05 
part per million (ppm). 
DATES: This temporary tolerance expires April 10, 1994. 
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: By mail: Joanne I. Miller, 
Product Manager (PM) 23, Registration Division (H7505C), Office 
of Pesticide Programs, Environmental Protection Agency, 401 
M St., SW., Washington, DC 20460. Office location and telephone 
number: Rm. 237, CM.2, 1921 Jefferson Davis Highway, Arlington, 
VA, 703-305-7850.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:  EPA issued a notice, which was published 
in the Federal Register of May 27, 1992 (57 FR 22233), announcing 
the extension of a temporary tolerance for the combined residues 
of the herbicide fenoxaprop-ethyl ((:)-ethyl 2-[4-[(6-chloro-
2-benzoxazolyl)oxy]phenoxy] propanoate and its metabolites 2-
[4-[(6-chloro-2-benzoxazolyl)oxy]phenoxy]propanoic acid and 
6-chloro-2,3-dihydrobenzoxazol-2-one, in or on the raw agricultural 
commodity barley, grain at 0.05 part per million (ppm). This 
tolerance was issued in response to pesticide petition (PP) 
1G3927, submitted by Hoechst Celanese Corporation, Route 202-
205, P.O. Box 2500, Somerville, NJ 08876-1258. 
   This temporary tolerance has been extended to permit the 
continued marketing of the raw agricultural commodity named 
above when treated in accordance with the provisions of experimental 
use permit 8340-EUP-13, which is being extended under the Federal 
Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) as amended 
(Pub. L. 95-396, 92 Stat. 819; 7 U.S.C. 136).
   The scientific data reported and other relevant material 
were evaluated, and it was determined that the extension of 
this temporary tolerance will protect the public health. Therefore, 
the temporary tolerance has been extended on the condition that 
the pesticide be used in accordance with the experimental use 
permit and with the following provisions:
   1. The total amount of the active herbicide to be used must 
not exceed the quantity authorized by the experimental use permit.
   2. Hoechst Celanese Corporation must immediately notify the 
EPA of any findings from the experimental use that have a bearing 
on safety. The company must also keep records of production, 
distribution, and performance and on request make the records 
available to any authorized officer or employee of the EPA or 
the Food and Drug Administration.
   This tolerance expires April 10, 1994. Residues not in excess 
of this amount remaining in or on the raw agricultural commodity 
after this expiration date will not be considered actionable 
if the pesticide is legally applied during the term of, and 
in accordance with, the provisions of the experimental use permit 
and temporary tolerance. This tolerance may be revoked if the 
experimental use permit is revoked or if any experience with 
or scientific data on this pesticide indicate that such revocation 
is necessary to protect the public health.
   The Office of Management and Budget has exempted this notice 
from the requirements of section 3 of Executive Order 12291.
   Pursuant to the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility 
Act (Pub. L. 96-354, 94 Stat. 1164, 5 U.S.C. 601-612), the Administrator 
has determined that regulations establishing new tolerances 
or raising tolerance levels or establishing exemptions from 
tolerance requirements do not have a significant economic impact 
on a substantial number of small entities. A certification statement 
to this effect was published in the Federal Register of May 
4, 1981 (46 FR 24950).
   Authority: 21 U.S.C. 346a(j). 
   Dated: May 6, 1993. 
Lawrence E. Culleen, 
Acting Director, Registration Division, Office of Pesticide 
Programs.
