[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).
