SUMMARY: EPA has established an exemption from the requirement 

of a tolerance for residues of the insect pheromone CheckMate 

MRB (Z-13-octadecenyl acetate, Z-11-hexadecenyl acetate and 

Z-13-octadecenal), in or on the raw agricultural commodity sugarcane 

for control of mexican rice borer. 



DATES: This temporary exemption from the requirement of a tolerance 

expires December 31, 1994. 



FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: By mail: Phil Hutton, Product 

Manager (PM 18), Registration Division (H7505C) Office of Pesticide 

Programs, Environmental Protection Agency, 401 M St., SW., Washington, 

DC 20460. Office location and telephone number: Rm. 213, CM.2, 

1921 Jefferson Davis Highway, Arlington, VA, (703-305-7690). 



SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Consep Membranes, Incorporated, 213 

Southwest Columbia St., Bend, Oregon 97702-1013, has requested 

in pesticide petition (PP) 3G4205, the establishment of an exemption 

from the requirement of a tolerance for residues of the insect 

pheromone CheckMate MRB (Z-13-octadecenyl acetate, Z-11-hexadecenyl 

acetate and Z-13-octadecenal), in or on the raw agricultural 

commodity sugarcane for control of mexican rice borer. This 

temporary exemption from the requirements of a tolerance will 

permit the marketing of the above raw agricultural commodity 

when treated in accordance with the provisions of experimental 

use permit 11312-EUP-38, which is being issued under the Federal 

Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), as amended 

(Pub. L. 95-396, 92 Stat. 819; 7 U.S.C. 136).



   The scientific data reported and other relevant material 

were evaluated, and it was determined that the exemption from 

the requirement of a tolerance will protect the public health. 

Therefore, the temporary exemption from the requirement of tolerance 

has been established on the condition that the pesticide be 

used in accordance with the experimental use permit and with 

the following provisions:

   1. The total amount of the active ingredient to be used must 

not exceed the quantity authorized by the experimental use permit.

   2. Consep Membranes, Incorporated must immediately notify 

the EPA of any findings from the experimental use permit that 

have a bearing on safety. The company must also keep records 

of production, distribution, and performance and on request 

make the records available to any authorized officer or employee 

of the EPA or the Food and Drug Administration.

   This temporary exemption from the requirement of a tolerance 

expires December 31, 1994. Residues remaining in or on the raw 

agricultural commodity after this expiration date will not be 

considered actionable if the pesticide is legally applied during 

the term of, and in accordance with, the provisions of the experimental 

use permit and temporary exemption from the requirement of a 

tolerance. This temporary exemption from the requirement of 

a tolerance may be revoked if the experimental use permit is 

revoked or if any experience with or scientific data on this 

pesticide indicate that such revocation is necessary to protect 

the public health.

   The Office of Management and Budget has exempted this notice 

from the requirement 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).



   Authority: 21 U.S.C. 346a(j). 



   Dated: May 11, 1993.

Acting Director, Registration Division, Office of Pesticide 

Programs.
