Proposed Information Collection Request; Comment Request; National Estuary Program [FR DOC# 2013-18159]
SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency is planning to submit an information collection request (ICR),
“National Estuary Program” (EPA ICR No. 1500.08, OMB Control No. 2040-0138 to the Office of Management and
Budget (OMB) for review and approval in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). Before
doing so, EPA is soliciting public comments on specific aspects of the proposed information collection as described
below. This is a proposed extension of the ICR, which is currently approved through January 31, 2014. An Agency may
not conduct or sponsor and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a
currently valid OMB control number.
Product Cancellation Order for Certain Pesticide Registrations; Correction [FR DOC# 2013-18179] SUMMARY: EPA
issued a notice in the Federal Register issue of June 26, 2013, concerning EPA’s order for the cancellation of certain
pesticide registrations. This document is being issued to correct the effective date of the cancellations of only the
resmethrin products identified in that June 26, 2013 notice.
Administrative Revisions to EPAAR [FR DOC# 2013-18037] SUMMARY: The EPA is taking direct final action on
administrative changes to the EPA Acquisition Regulation (EPAAR). This action revises the EPAAR, but does not
impose any new requirements on Agency contractors. The revisions in this direct final rule will make minor corrections
to and streamline Agency acquisition processes to be consistent with and non-duplicative of the Federal Acquisition
Regulation (FAR). EPA is issuing a final rule because the changes are administrative in nature and does not anticipate
receiving adverse comments.
Conditional Exclusions From Solid Waste and Hazardous Waste for Solvent-Contaminated Wipes [FR DOC# 2013-
18285] SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA or the Agency) is publishing a final rule that modifies
its hazardous waste management regulations for solvent-contaminated wipes under the Resource Conservation and
Recovery Act. Specifically, this rule revises the definition of solid waste to conditionally exclude solvent-contaminated
wipes that are cleaned and reused and revises the definition of hazardous waste to conditionally exclude solvent-
contaminated wipes that are disposed. The purpose of this final rule is to provide a consistent regulatory framework that
is appropriate to the level of risk posed by solvent-contaminated wipes in a way that maintains protection of human
health and the environment, while reducing overall compliance costs for industry, many of which are small businesses.
Sorbitan Monooleate Ethylene Oxide Adduct; Exemption From the Requirement of a Tolerance [FR DOC# 2013-18188]
SUMMARY: This regulation establishes an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for residues of sorbitan,
mono-9-octadecenoate, poly(oxy-1,2-ethanediyl) derivs., (Z)- (CAS Reg. No 9005-65-6) (also known as “sorbitan
monooleate ethylene oxide adduct” and as “polysorbate 80”) when used as an inert ingredient in antimicrobial
formulations for use on food-contact surfaces in public eating places, dairy-processing equipment, and food-processing
equipment and utensils. Exponent, on behalf of Ecolab, Inc. submitted a petition to EPA under the Federal Food, Drug,
and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), requesting the establishment of an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance. This
regulation eliminates the need to establish a maximum permissible level for residues of sorbitan monooleate ethylene
Complex Polymeric Polyhydroxy Acids; Exemption From the Requirement of a Tolerance [FR DOC# 2013-18185]
SUMMARY: This regulation establishes an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for residues of Complex
Polymeric Polyhydroxy Acids in or on all food commodities. This regulation eliminates the need to establish a
maximum permissible level for residues of Complex Polymeric Polyhydroxy Acids (CPPA) under FFDCA.
Modification of Significant New Uses of Ethaneperoxoic Acid, 1,1-Dimethylpropyl Ester [FR DOC# 2013-18180]
SUMMARY: Under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), EPA is finalizing an amendment to the significant new
use rule (SNUR) for the chemical substance identified as ethaneperoxoic acid, 1,1- dimethylpropyl ester, which was the
subject of premanufacture notice (PMN) P-85-680. This action requires persons who intend to manufacture or process
the chemical substance for a use that is designated as a significant new use by this final rule to notify EPA at least 90
days before commencing that activity. EPA believes that this action is necessary because new uses of the chemical
substance may be hazardous to human health. The required notification would provide EPA with the opportunity to
evaluate the intended use and, if necessary, to prohibit or limit that activity before it occurs.
Trifluralin; Pesticide Tolerance [FR DOC# 2013-18420] SUMMARY: This regulation establishes a tolerance for residues
of trifluralin in or on the oilseed crop group 20. Interregional Research Project Number 4 (IR-4) requested this tolerance
under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA).
Pyroxasulfone; Pesticide Tolerances [FR DOC# 2013-18412] SUMMARY: This regulation establishes tolerances for
residues of pyroxasulfone in or on multiple commodities which are identified and discussed later in this document. K-I
Chemical U.S.A., Inc. requested these tolerances under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA).
Forchlorfenuron; Temporary Pesticide Tolerances [FR DOC# 2013-18182] SUMMARY: This regulation establishes
temporary tolerances for residues of forchlorfenuron in or on multiple commodities which are identified and discussed
later in this document. KIM-C1, LLC requested these tolerances under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act
(FFDCA) for uses associated with an experimental use permit. The tolerances expire on December 31, 2015.
