napropamide (Devrinol) Pesticide Tolerance 6/93

Pesticide Tolerance for N,N-Diethyl-2-(1-Naphthalenyloxy)Propionamide
AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
ACTION: Final rule.
SUMMARY: This document establishes a tolerance for residues 
of the herbicide N,N-diethyl-2-(1-naphthalenyloxy) propionamide 
(also referred to as napropamide) in or on the raw agricultural 
commodity sweet potato. The regulation to establish a maximum 
permissible level for residues of the herbicide in or on the 
commodity was requested in a petition submitted by the Interregional 
Research Project No. 4 (IR-4). 
EFFECTIVE DATE: This regulation becomes effective on June 30, 
ADDRESSES: Written objections, identified by the document control 
number, [PP 2E4108/R1198], may be submitted to: Hearing Clerk 
(A-110), Environmental Protection Agency, Rm. M3708, 401 M St., 
SW., Washington, DC 20460.
Emergency Response and Minor Use Section (H7505W), Registration 
Division, Environmental Protection Agency, 401 M St., SW., Washington,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the Federal Register of April 
14, 1993 (58 FR 19391), EPA issued a proposed rule that gave 
notice that the Interregional Research Project No. 4 (IR-4), 
New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station, P.O. Box 231, Rutgers 
University, New Brunswick, NJ 08903, had submitted pesticide 
petition (PP) 2E4108 to EPA on behalf of the Agricultural Experiment 
Stations of California, North Carolina, and Louisiana. The petition 
requested that the Administrator, pursuant to section 408(e) 
of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 346a(e)), 
propose to establish a tolerance for residues of the herbicide 
N,N-diethyl-2-(1-naphthalenyloxy)propionamide in or on the raw 
agricultural commodity sweet potato at 0.1 part per million 
   There were no comments or requests for referral to an advisory 
committee received in response to the proposed rule. 
   The data submitted in the petition and other relevant material 
have been evaluated and discussed in the proposed rule. Based 
on the data and information considered, the Agency concludes 
that the tolerance will protect the public health. Therefore, 
the tolerance is established as set forth below.
   Any person adversely affected by this regulation may, within 
30 days after publication of this document in the Federal Register, 
file written objections with the Hearing Clerk, at the address 
given above (40 CFR 178.20). The objections submitted must specify 
the provisions of the regulation deemed objectionable and the 
grounds for the objections (40 CFR 178.25). Each objection must 
be accompanied by the fee prescribed by 40 CFR 180.33(i). If 
a hearing is requested, the objections must include a statement 
of the factual issue(s) on which a hearing is requested, the 
requestor's contentions on such issues, and a summary of any 
evidence relied upon by the objector (40 CFR 178.27). A request 
for a hearing will be granted if the Administrator determines 
that the material submitted shows the following: There is a 
genuine and substantial issue of fact; there is a reasonable 
possibility that available evidence identified by the requestor 
would, if established, resolve one or more of such issues in 
favor of the requestor, taking into account uncontested claims 
or facts to the contrary; and resolution of the factual issue(s) 
in the manner sought by the requestor would be adequate to justify 
the action requested (40 CFR 178.32).
   The Office of Management and Budget has exempted this rule 
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).
