FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: By mail: Phillip O. Hutton, 
Product Manager (PM) 18, Registration Division (7505C), Office 
of Pesticide Programs, 401 M St., SW., Washington, DC 20460. 
Office location and telephone number: Rm. 213, CM #2, Environmental 
Protection Agency, 1921 Jefferson Davis Hwy, Arlington, VA 22202, 
(703-305-7690). 

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 
codling moths.
   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, 
and the Agency's regulatory position and rationale, may be obtained 
from the National Technical Information Service (NTIS), 5285 
Port Royal Road, Springfield, VA 22161. 
   In accordance with section 3(c)(2) of FIFRA, a copy of the 
approved label and the list of data references used to support 
registration are available for public inspection in the office 
of the Product Manager. The data and other scientific information 
used to support registration, except for material specifically 
protected by section 10 of FIFRA, are available for public inspection 
in the Public Response and Program Resources Branch, Field Operations 
Division (7506C), Office of Pesticide Programs, Environmental 
Protection Agency, Rm. 1132, CM #2, Arlington, VA 22202 (703-
305-5805). Requests for data must be made in accordance with
