SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: EPA issued a notice, published in
the Federal Register of April 18, 1990 (55 FR 14469), which
announced that Consep Membranes, Inc., (now known as Consep
Inc.) 213 Southwest Columbia, Bend, OR 97708, had submitted
applications to register the pesticide products Checkmate CM
Technical Pheromone and Checkmate CM (EPA File Symbols 56336-
U and 56336-L), containing the active ingredient (E,E)-8,10-
dodecadien-1-ol at 92 percent respectively, an active ingredient
not included in any previously registered products.
EPA also received an application from Bedoukian Research
Inc., 21 Finance Drive, Danbury, CN 06810-4192, to register
the pesticide product Bedoukian CM Technical Pheromone (File
Symbol 52991-E) an insecticide, containing the active ingredient
(E,E)-8,10-dodecadien-1-ol at 96.32 percent. However, since
the notice of receipt of application was not published in the
Federal Register for this product, interested parties may submit
written comments within 30 days from the date of publication
of this notice for this product.
On February 24, 1994, EPA approved three new products (one
end-use and two technicals) as follows:
1. Checkmate CM (EPA Registration Number 56336-5) for control
of codling moths on apples, nectarines, peaches, pears, plums,
prunes, quince, and walnuts.
2. Checkmate CM Technical Pheromone (EPA Registration Number
56336-4) for use in formulating end-use products to control
3. Bedoukian CM Technical Pheromone (EPA Registration Number
52991-2) for formulation use only.
The Agency has considered all required data on risks associated
with the proposed use of (E,E)-8,10-dodecadien-1-ol, and information
on social, economic, and environmental benefits to be derived
from use. Specifically, the Agency has considered the nature
of the chemical and its pattern of use, application methods
and rates, and level and extent of potential exposure. Based
on these reviews, the Agency was able to make basic health safety
determinations which show that use of (E,E)-8,10-dodecadien-
1-ol when used in accordance with widespread and commonly recognized
practice, will not generally cause unreasonable adverse effects
to the environment.
More detailed information on these registrations is contained
in a Chemical Fact Sheet on (E,E)-8,10-dodecadien-1-ol.
A copy of this fact sheet, which provides a summary description
of the chemical, use patterns and formulations, science findings,
