SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: EPA issued notices, published in
the Federal Register of July 1, 1992 (57 FR 29311) and November
18, 1992 (57 FR 54402), which announced that Roussel Bio Corp.,
170 Beaver Brook Road, Lincoln Park, NJ 07035, had submitted
applications to register the pesticide products K-Othrine SC
5.0, and Deltamethrin Technical, (EPA File Symbols 432-TAG and
432-TAE), containing the active ingredients deltamethrin (s)-
dimethyl cyclopropanecarboxylate at 4.75 percent and (1R,3R)-
3-(2,2-dibromovinyl)-2,2-dimethyl cyclopropane carboxylic acid
(S)-alpha-cyano-3-phenoxybenzyl ester at 98 percent respectively,
active ingredients not included in any previously registered
   On March 2, 1994, EPA approved two new products (one end-
use and one technical) as follows:

   1. K-Othrine SC 5.0 (EPA Registration Number 432-763) for
use in and around residential, industrial, institutional structures,
and their immediate surroundings.
   2. Deltamethrin Technical (EPA Registration Number 432-762)
for formulating purposes only.
   The Agency has considered all required data on risks associated
with the proposed use of deltamethrin, 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 deltamethrin 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 deltamethrin.
   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
