|5.||Title of the notified document: Quizalofop Ethyl; Pesticide Tolerances Language(s): English Number of pages: 6|
|6.||Description of content: Tolerances are established for residues of quizalofop ethyl, ethyl-2-[4-(6-chloroquinoxalin-2-yl oxy)phenoxy]propanoate, in or on crambe, meal at 2.0 ppm; gold of pleasure, meal at 2.0 ppm; rapeseed, meal at 2.0 ppm; rapeseed, subgroup 20A, except flax, seed at 1.5 ppm; sorghum, grain, grain at 0.20 ppm; sorghum, grain, forage at 0.20 ppm; sorghum, grain, stover at 0.30 ppm; and sorghum, grain, aspirated grain fractions at 1.0 ppm. This final rule additionally removes the established tolerances for canola, seed at 1.0 ppm; and canola, meal at 1.5 ppm. This regulation also deletes time-limited tolerances for quizalofop ethyl on beet, sugar, molasses at 0.2 ppm; beet, sugar, roots at 0.1 ppm; beet, sugar, tops at 0.5 ppm; vegetable, foliage of legume, except soybean, subgroup 7A at 3.0 ppm; and vegetable, legume, group 6 at 0.25 ppm, as the tolerances expired on June 14, 1999. Finally, this final rule revises the tolerance expression to clarify: 1. That, as provided in FFDCA section 408(a)(3), the tolerance covers metabolites and degradates of quizalofop ethyl not specifically mentioned; and 2. That compliance with the specified tolerance levels is to be determined by measuring only the specific compounds mentioned in the tolerance expression.|
|7.||Objective and rationale: [X] food safety, [ ] animal health, [ ] plant protection, [ ] protect humans from animal/plant pest or disease, [ ] protect territory from other damage from pests.|
|8.||Is there a relevant international standard? If so, identify the standard:
[ ] Codex Alimentarius Commission (e.g. title or serial number of Codex standard or related text)
[ ] World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) (e.g. Terrestrial or Aquatic Animal Health Code, chapter number)
[ ] International Plant Protection Convention (e.g. ISPM number)
Does this proposed regulation conform to the relevant international standard?
[ ] Yes [ ] No
If no, describe, whenever possible, how and why it deviates from the international standard:
|9.||Other relevant documents and language(s) in which these are available: In the Federal Register of 25 February 2011 (76 FR 10584) (FRL-8863-3), EPA issued a notice pursuant to section 408(d)(3) of FFDCA, 21 U.S.C. 346a(d)(3), announcing the filing of a pesticide petition, PP 0E7802, by IR-4, 500 College Road East, Suite 201W, Princeton, NJ 08540. The petition requested that 40 CFR 180.441 be amended by establishing tolerances for residues of the herbicide quizalofop ethyl, ethyl-2-[4-(6-chloroquinoxalin-2-yl oxy)phenoxy]propanoate, including its metabolites and degradates, in or on rapeseed subgroup 20A, except flax, seed at 1.0 parts per million (ppm); gold of pleasure, meal at 1.5 ppm; crambe, meal at 1.5 ppm; sorghum, grain at 0.2 ppm; sorghum, forage at 0.2 ppm; sorghum, stover at 0.35 ppm; and sorghum, aspirated grain at 1.0 ppm. The petition additionally requested that EPA amend tolerances in 40 CFR 180.441 by removing the established tolerance for canola, seed at 1.0 ppm from the table in paragraph (a)(3), as the individual tolerance will be superseded by inclusion in rapeseed subgroup 20A, except flax, seed. The petition also proposed to remove the tolerances in Sec. 180.441(a)(4), as these tolerances expired on 14 June 1999.
The petition, PP 0E7802, also proposed to amend 40 CFR 180.441 by combining the tables for sections (a)(1) and (a)(3) into one table under section (a)(1), and by removing section (a)(3). It further proposed to revise the tolerance expression under section (a)(1). The petition, PP 0E7802, additionally proposed to revise the tolerance expression under section (a)(2).
Finally, PP 0E7802 proposed to revise the tolerance expression under section (c). That notice referenced a summary of the petition prepared on behalf of IR-4 by E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company, the registrant, which is available to the public in the docket, http://www.regulations.gov. There were no comments received in response to the notice of filing.
Based upon review of the data supporting the petitions, EPA has revised the proposed tolerance level and/or commodity definition for several commodities. The Agency has also removed the established tolerance on canola, meal, as the data were used to establish a tolerance on rapeseed meal, the preferred commodity terminology. The reasons for these changes are explained in Unit IV.C.
