ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

40 CFR Part 180

[OPP-300913A; FRL-6556-3]
RIN 2070-AB78


Cyromazine; Pesticide Tolerance

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This final rule establishes permanent tolerances for residues
of cyromazine (CAS No. 66215-27-8) in or on mango at 0.3 parts per
million (ppm); onion, green at 2.0 ppm; onions, dry bulb at 0.1 ppm;
potato at 0.8 ppm; corn, sweet, (kernels plus cob with husks removed)
at 0.5 ppm; corn, sweet, forage at 0.5 ppm; corn, sweet, stover at 0.5
ppm; radishes, root at 0.5 ppm; radishes, tops at 0.5 ppm; lima beans
at 1.0 ppm; cotton, undelinted seed at 0.1 ppm; milk at 0.05 ppm; and
meat, fat and meat byproducts (of cattle, goat, hogs, horses and sheep)
at 0.05 ppm. This final rule also removes melamine, a metabolite of
cyromazine from the tolerance expression since it is no longer
considered a residue of concern. The Interregional Research Project
(IR-4) and Novartis Crop Protection, Inc. requested these tolerances
under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, as amended by the Food
Quality Protection Act of 1996.

DATES: This regulation is effective May 4, 2000. Objections and
requests for hearings, identified by docket control number OPP-300913A,
must be received by EPA on or before July 3, 2000.

ADDRESSES: Written objections and hearing requests may be submitted by
mail, in person, or by courier. Please follow the detailed instructions
for each method as provided in Unit VI. of the SUPPLEMENTARY
INFORMATION. To ensure proper receipt by EPA, your objections and
hearing requests must identify docket control number OPP-300913A in the
subject line on the first page of your response.

II. Background and Statutory Findings

    In the Federal Register of September 15, 1999 (64 FR 50043) (FRL-
6098-7), EPA issued a proposed rule which announced that Novartis Crop
Protection, Inc., 410 Swing Road, Greensboro, NC 27419 and the
Interregional Research Project (IR-4) had submitted pesticide petitions
(PP) 5E4450, 5F4574, 6F4613, 5F4546, 6F3332, and 7E4905 pursuant to
section 408 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), 21
U.S.C. 346a as amended by the Food Quality Protection Act of 1996
(FQPA) (Public Law 104-170) proposing that 40 CFR part 180 be amended
by establishing a tolerance for cyromazine in or on mango at 0.3 parts
per million (ppm); onion, green at 2.0 ppm; onions, dry bulb at 0.1
ppm; potato at 0.8 ppm; corn, sweet, (kernels plus cob with husks
removed) at 0.5 ppm; corn, sweet, forage at 0.5 ppm; corn, sweet,
stover at 0.5 ppm; radishes, root at 0.5 ppm; radishes, tops at 0.5
ppm; lima beans at 1.0 ppm; cotton, undelinted seed at 0.1 ppm; milk at
0.05 ppm; and meat, fat and meat byproducts (of cattle, goat, hogs,
horses and sheep) at 0.05 ppm. EPA received one comment from a private
citizen of Australia alleging that the poor health of a dog was due to
cyromazine and stating that long-term implications and studies

[[Page 25858]]

had not been addressed in this petition. In particular the citizen
stated:

    1. On 14 September 1999, an Adverse Reaction Experience Report
was submitted to the National Registration Authority in Australia on
the use and subsequent ill-health of a dog after long-term ingestion
of cyromazine available in Australia as an oral flea control. Period
was some 4-5 years at 300 mg/day for 27 kg dog. The dog's kidneys
and liver were enlarged and her immune system dysfunctional. The
cyromazine was immediately stopped at a veterinarian's request and
the dog's organs continually become less inflamed. The flea control
tablet was withdrawn from the market some 2 or 3 years ago, due to
fatalities in a number of animals due to liver failure. The product
was subsequently re-released with warning that only dogs which had
shown no reaction to the ``Decaflea'' could use it.
    2. If a factor of 10 or 100 is used from animal reaction to
allowable human exposure, how does very short-term fatal liver
dysfunction in dogs equate to long-term ingestion by humans,
especially infants and children. How does this equate to humans who
already have liver and kidney disease/dysfunction?
    3. Please refer to the following publications available through
PubMed at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov: ``Feeding cyromazine to
Luhmann hens: residues in tissues and effects on some biochemical
constituents.'' Cyromazine was fed to Luhmann hens at 0.15 ppm level
supplemented the basal diet for 3 weeks. The build up of cyromazine
residues in liver and muscles of hens up to 7th day. . . .During the
3 weeks of feeding on the treated diet, the accumulated residues
reduced the blood glucose and hepatic protein significantly up to 2
weeks. . . .Also such residues had adverse effects on the activities
of alkaline phosphates and transaminase and extend on red blood
cells, white blood cells, hemoglobin content and packed cell volume
compared with the untreated hens.
    ``Effects of CGA-72662 (Larvadex) in turkeys during rearing and
reproduction'' . . . The kidneys were characterized as enlarged,
nodular and cystic, containing urate deposits and areas of necrosis.
    I suggest that although short-term studies have been carried out
on cyromazine, the long-term implications have not been addressed in
this petition.
    Allowing increased levels of cyromazine in foods loved by
children, e.g., milk, mangoes and sweet corn without long-term
studies of the effects of this toxin is tantamount to negligence.

    EPA responses to these comments follows:
    The cyromazine data base contains all required studies, this
includes (sometimes with several studies for each study category):

    Acute oral toxicity in the rat
    Acute dermal toxicity in the rabbit
    Acute inhalation toxicity in the rat
    Primary eye irritation in the rabbit
    Primary dermal irritation in the rabbit
    Dermal sensitization in the guinea pig
    Subchronic oral toxicity in the rat (13 weeks)
    Subchronic oral toxicity in the dog (13 weeks)
    Subchronic dermal toxicity in the rabbit (21 days)
    Chronic oral toxicity in the rat (2 year)
    Chronic oral toxicity in the dog (6 month)
    Developmental toxicity in the rat
    Developmental toxicity in the rabbit
    Developmental toxicity in the rabbit with postnatal
    Multigeneration reproduction study in the rat
    Carcinogenicity study in the rat (2 year)
    Carcinogenicity study in the mouse (2 year)
    Mutagenicity battery
    General metabolism in the rat
    General metabolism in sheep
    General metabolism in the chicken
    General metabolism in the goat
    General metabolism in the cow
    Dermal absorption in the rat

    All the required acute, short-term and long-term studies have been
conducted. The Agency has assessed the long-term human health effects
from exposure to cyromazine. The available dog studies only indicate
effects on the hematological parameters (hematocrit and hemoglobin
levels); there was an increase in liver weight in the 13-week study,
but this was not seen in any other species. There was no indication of
effects in the dog on the liver (other than weight, a normal
physiological response to metabolism of the compound, no supportive
histopathology was noted), kidneys, or on the immune system. The Agency
notes that ``Decaflea'' product administered to the dog also contained
200 milligrams/tablet of diethylcarbamazine citrate, an ethyl carbamate
and heartworm animal drug. If the health effects seen in the dog were
treatment-related, the presence of this compound should also have been
investigated as a possible cause.
    In regards to the two open literature studies cited, the Agency
notes that the first open literature study is an Egyptian study in
chickens looking at liver function. The results indicate that the liver
was functioning normally to detoxify the administered compound.
    The second study was in turkeys intended to assess the effects on
reproduction. This study utilized extremely high doses (up to 2 grams
per kilogram diet). These are doses that exceeded even our limit doses.
Since the turkey is one of the treated species for fly control, this
study was not an evaluation of the reproductive effects, but rather a
true toxicity study (producing adverse effects) as opposed to hazard
studies used by EPA to evaluate potential hazards to humans. The
investigators had to reduce one dose due to palatability problems (the
turkeys would not eat the treated diet). The kidney effects were due to
an overburdening of the organ from the extremely high doses. The Agency
conducted open literature searches to determine if there was any report
of adverse effects not reported previously and no additional
information was found.
    As stated previously and as indicated in the September 15, 1999
Federal Register proposal for cyromazine, the Agency has sufficient
data to assess the short- and long-term hazards of cyromazine with
special consideration to the sensitivity of infants and children from
exposure to cyromazine as required by the FQPA.
    The petitions requested that 40 CFR 180.414 be amended by
establishing a tolerance for residues of the insecticide cyromazine, in
or on mango at 0.3 parts per million (ppm); onion, green at 2.0 ppm;
onions, dry bulb at 0.1 ppm; potato at 0.8 ppm; corn, sweet, (kernels
plus cob with husks removed) at 0.5 ppm; corn, sweet, forage at 0.5
ppm; corn, sweet, stover at 0.5 ppm; radishes, root at 0.5 ppm;
radishes, tops at 0.5 ppm; lima beans at 1.0 ppm; cotton, undelinted
seed at 0.1 ppm; milk at 0.05 ppm; and meat, fat and meat byproducts
(of cattle, goat, hogs, horses and sheep at 0.05 ppm. Based on the risk
assessments discussed in the proposed rule and the findings made
therein, the Agency concludes that there is a reasonable certainty that
no harm will result to the U.S. population and to infants and children
from aggregate exposure to residues of cyromazine. Therefore,
tolerances are established as set forth below.

III. Objections and Hearing Requests

    Under section 408(g) of the FFDCA, as amended by the FQPA, any
person may file an objection to any aspect of this regulation and may
also request a hearing on those objections. The EPA procedural
regulations which govern the submission of objections and requests for
hearings appear in 40 CFR part 178. Although the procedures in those
regulations require some modification to reflect the amendments made to
the FFDCA by the FQPA of 1996, EPA will continue to use those
procedures, with appropriate adjustments, until the necessary
modifications can be made. The new section 408(g) provides essentially
the same process for persons to ``object'' to a regulation for an
exemption from the requirement of a tolerance issued by EPA under new
section 408(d), as was provided in the old FFDCA sections 408 and 409.
However, the period for filing objections is now 60 days, rather than
30 days.

[[Page 25859]]

A. What Do I Need to Do to File an Objection or Request a Hearing?

    You must file your objection or request a hearing on this
regulation in accordance with the instructions provided in this unit
and in 40 CFR part 178. To ensure proper receipt by EPA, you must
identify docket control number OPP-300913A in the subject line on the
first page of your submission. All requests must be in writing, and
must be mailed or delivered to the Hearing Clerk on or before July 3,
2000.
    1. Filing the request. Your objection must specify the specific
provisions in the regulation that you object to, and the grounds for
the objections (40 CFR 178.25). If a hearing is requested, the
objections must include a statement of the factual issues(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).
Information submitted in connection with an objection or hearing
request may be claimed confidential by marking any part or all of that
information as CBI. Information so marked will not be disclosed except
in accordance with procedures set forth in 40 CFR part 2. A copy of the
information that does not contain CBI must be submitted for inclusion
in the public record. Information not marked confidential may be
disclosed publicly by EPA without prior notice.
    Mail your written request to: Office of the Hearing Clerk (1900),
Environmental Protection Agency, Ariel Rios Bldg., 1200 Pennsylvania
Ave., NW., Washington, DC 20460. You may also deliver your request to
the Office of the Hearing Clerk in Rm. C400, Waterside Mall, 401 M St.,

telephone number for the Office of the Hearing Clerk is (202) 260-4865.
    2. Tolerance fee payment. If you file an objection or request a
hearing, you must also pay the fee prescribed by 40 CFR 180.33(i) or
request a waiver of that fee pursuant to 40 CFR 180.33(m). You must
mail the fee to: EPA Headquarters Accounting Operations Branch, Office
of Pesticide Programs, P.O. Box 360277M, Pittsburgh, PA 15251. Please
identify the fee submission by labeling it ``Tolerance Petition Fees.''
    EPA is authorized to waive any fee requirement ``when in the
judgement of the Administrator such a waiver or refund is equitable and
not contrary to the purpose of this subsection.'' For additional
information regarding the waiver of these fees, you may contact James
Tompkins by phone at (703) 305-5697, by e-mail at tompkins.jim@epa.gov,
or by mailing a request for information to Mr. Tompkins at Registration
Division (7505C), Office of Pesticide Programs, Environmental
Protection Agency, Ariel Rios Bldg., 1200 Pennsylvania Ave., NW.,
Washington, DC 20460.
    If you would like to request a waiver of the tolerance objection
fees, you must mail your request for such a waiver to: James Hollins,
Information Resources and Services Division (7502C), Office of
Pesticide Programs, Environmental Protection Agency, Ariel Rios Bldg.,
1200 Pennsylvania Ave., NW., Washington, DC 20460.
    3. Copies for the Docket. In addition to filing an objection or
hearing request with the Hearing Clerk as described in Unit VI.A., you
should also send a copy of your request to the PIRIB for its inclusion
in the official record that is described in Unit I.B.2. Mail your
copies, identified by docket control number OPP-300913A, to: Public
Information and Records Integrity Branch, Information Resources and
Services Division (7502C), Office of Pesticide Programs, Environmental
Protection Agency, Ariel Rios Bldg., 1200 Pennsylvania Ave., NW.,
Washington, DC 20460. In person or by courier, bring a copy to the
location of the PIRIB described in Unit I.B.2. You may also send an
electronic copy of your request via e-mail to: opp-docket@epa.gov.
Please use an ASCII file format and avoid 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 6.1/8.0 file
format or ASCII file format. Do not include any CBI in your electronic
copy. You may also submit an electronic copy of your request at many
Federal Depository Libraries.

B. When Will the Agency Grant a Request for a Hearing?

    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 issues(s) in the manner sought
by the requestor would be adequate to justify the action requested (40
CFR 178.32).

IV. Regulatory Assessment Requirements

    This final rule establishes a tolerance under FFDCA section 408(d)
in response to a petition submitted to the Agency. The Office of
Management and Budget (OMB) has exempted these types of actions from
review under Executive Order 12866, entitled Regulatory Planning and
Review (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993). This final rule does not contain
any information collections subject to OMB approval under the Paperwork
Reduction Act (PRA), 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., or impose any enforceable
duty or contain any unfunded mandate as described under Title II of the
Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA) (Public Law 104-4). Nor
does it require any prior consultation as specified by Executive Order
13084, entitled Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal
Governments (63 FR 27655, May 19, 1998); special considerations as
required by Executive Order 12898, entitled Federal Actions to Address
Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income
Populations (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994); or require OMB review or
any Agency action under Executive Order 13045, entitled Protection of
Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks (62 FR 19885,
April 23, 1997). This action does not involve any technical standards
that would require Agency consideration of voluntary consensus
standards pursuant to section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer
and Advancement Act of 1995 (NTTAA), Public Law 104-113, section 12(d)
(15 U.S.C. 272 note). Since tolerances and exemptions that are
established on the basis of a petition under FFDCA section 408(d), such
as the tolerance in this final rule, do not require the issuance of a
proposed rule, the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA)
(5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) do not apply. In addition, the Agency has
determined that this action will not have a substantial direct effect
on States, on the relationship between the national government and the
States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the
various levels of government, as specified in Executive Order 13132,
entitled Federalism (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999). Executive Order
13132 requires EPA to develop an accountable process to ensure
``meaningful and timely input by State and local officials in the
development of regulatory policies that have federalism implications.''
``Policies that have federalism implications'' is defined in the
Executive Order to

[[Page 25860]]

include regulations that have ``substantial direct effects on the
States, on the relationship between the national government and the
States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the
various levels of government.'' This final rule directly regulates
growers, food processors, food handlers and food retailers, not States.
This action does not alter the relationships or distribution of power
and responsibilities established by Congress in the preemption
provisions of FFDCA section 408(n)(4).

V. Submission to Congress and the Comptroller General

    The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., as added by the
Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, generally
provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating
the rule must submit a rule report, which includes a copy of the rule,
to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the
United States. EPA will submit 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 United States prior
to publication of this final rule in the Federal Register. This final
rule is not a ``major rule'' as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).

    (2) The additive cyromazine (N-cyclopropyl-1,3,5-triazine-2,4,6-
triamine) may be safely used in accordance with the following
prescribed conditions:
    (i) It is used as a feed additive only in feed for chicken layer
hens and chicken breeder hens at the rate of not more than 0.01 pound
of cyromazine per ton of poultry feed.
    (ii) It is used for control of flies in manure of treated chicken
layer hens and chicken breeder hens.
    (iii) Feeding of cyromazine-treated feed must stop at least 3 days
(72 hours) before slaughter. If the feed is formulated by any person
other than the end user, the formulator must inform the end user, in
