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 

listed above is substantially complete. EPA has determined that 

all currently registered products subject to reregistration 

containing these active ingredients are eligible for reregistration.

   Case 0381 - Maleic Hydrazide 

   To request a copy of any of the above listed RED document, 

or a RED Fact Sheet, contact the OPP Pesticide Docket, Public 

Response and Program Resources Branch, in Rm. 1132 at the address 

given above or call (703) 305-5805.

   All registrants of products containing the listed active 

ingredient have been sent the appropriate RED document and must 

respond to labeling requirements and product specific data requirements 

(if applicable) within 8 months of receipt. Products containing 

the other active ingredients will not be reregistered until 

adequate product specific data have been submitted and all necessary 

product label changes are implemented.

   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 these REDs as final documents 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. If any comment significantly affect 

a RED, EPA will amend the RED by publishing the amendment in 

the Federal Register.
