the other active ingredients will not be reregistered until
adequate product specific data have been submitted and all necessary

The reregistration program is being conducted under Congressionally

timely reregistration decisions and to involve the public. Therefore,
EPA is issuing these REDs as final documents with a 60-day comment

a RED, EPA will amend the RED by publishing the amendment in
the Federal Register.
