Tralomethrin; Establishment of Temporary Tolerances

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: EPA has established temporary tolerances for residues of the
insecticide tralomethrin in or on certain raw agricultural commodities.
These temporary tolerances were requested by AgrEvo USA Company.

DATES: These temporary tolerances expire June 1, 1997.

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

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AgrEvo USA Co., Little Falls Center One,
2711 Centerville Rd., Wilmington, DE 19808, has requested in pesticide
petition (PP) 9G3774, the establishment of temporary tolerances for
residues of the insecticide tralomethrin (1R, 3S) 3 [(1' RS) (1' ,2'
,2' ,2'-tetrabrp, petju;)]-2, 2-dimethylcyclopropanecarboxylic acid
(s)-α-cyano-3-phenoxybenzyl ester in or on the raw agricultural
commodities tomato at 0.20 parts per million (ppm); fat of cattle,
goats, hogs, horses, and sheep at 0.10 ppm; meat of cattle, goats,
hogs, horses, and sheep at 0.01 ppm; meat byproducts of cattle, goats,
hogs, horses, sheep at 0.01 ppm and milk at 0.02 ppm, and a food/feed
additive petition is being established for tomato products (puree) at
1.0 ppm; tomato pomace (wet) at 1.50 ppm, and tomato pomace (dry) at
4.0 ppm. These temporary tolerances will permit the marketing of the
above raw agricultural commodities when treated in accordance with the
provisions of the experimental use permit 34147-EUP-2, 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 establishment of the temporary
tolerances will protect the public health. Therefore, the temporary
tolerances have been established on the condition that the insecticide
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. AgrEvo USA Co., must immediately notify the EPA of any findings
from the experimental use 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.
    These tolerances expire June 1, 1997. Residues not in excess of
these amounts remaining in or on the raw agricultural commodities after
this expiration date will not be considered actionable if the
insecticide is legally applied during the term of, and in accordance
with, the provisions of the experimental use permit and temporary
tolerances. These tolerances may be revoked if the experimental use
permit is revoked or if any experience with or scientific data on this
insecticide 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 12866.
    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).
