PROPOSED RULES

Tetrachlorvinphos; Proposed Pesticide Tolerances [FR DOC# 2013-13818] SUMMARY: This regulation proposes to amend the existing time-limited interim tolerances by converting them to permanent tolerances for the combined residues of the insecticide tetrachlorvinphos, including its metabolites, in or on multiple commodities identified in this document, under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA).

Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; Utah; Revisions to Utah Administrative Code-Permit: New and Modified Sources [FR DOC# 2013-13979] SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to partially approve and partially disapprove State Implementation Plan (SIP) revisions submitted by the State of Utah on September 15, 2006. The September 15, 2006 revisions contain new, amended and renumbered rules in Utah Administrative Code (UAC) Title R-307 that pertain to the issuance of Utah air quality permits. The September 15, 2006 revisions supersedes, in its entirety, and replaces an October 9, 1998 submittal that initially revised provisions in Utah’s air quality permit program. In this action, we are proposing to approve all but four of the SIP revisions in the September 15, 2006 submittal. We are proposing to disapprove the State’s rules, R307-401-7 (Public Notice), R307-401-9(b) and portions of (c) (Small Source Exemption), R307-401- 12 (Reduction in Air Contaminants), and R307-410-5 (Documentation of Ambient Air Impacts for Hazardous Air Pollutants). We are also proposing to partially approve and partially disapprove R307-410-6 (Stack Heights and Dispersion Techniques). This action is being taken under section 110 of the CAA.

 

RULES

1,3-Propanediol; Exemptions From the Requirement of a Tolerance [FR DOC# 2013-13823] SUMMARY: This regulation establishes exemptions from the requirement of a tolerance for residues of 1,3-propanediol (CAS Reg. No. 504-63-2) when used as an inert ingredient solvent, co-solvent, diluent, or freeze-point depressant in pesticide formulations applied to growing crops and to raw agricultural crops after harvest and in antimicrobial pesticide formulations applied to food-contact surfaces in public eating places, dairy-processing equipment, and food-processing equipment and utensils. DuPont Tate & Lyle BioProducts submitted a petition to EPA under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), requesting establishment of exemptions from the requirement of a tolerance. These regulations eliminate the need to establish a maximum permissible level for residues of 1,3-propanediol.

Bacillus pumilus Strain BU F-33; Exemption From the Requirement of a Tolerance [FR DOC# 2013-13821] SUMMARY: This regulation establishes an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for residues of Bacillus pumilus strain BU F-33 in or on all food commodities when applied to elicit induced systemic resistance in plants and used in accordance with label directions and good agricultural practices. Becker Underwood, Inc., submitted a petition to the EPA under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) requesting an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance. This regulation eliminates the need to establish a maximum permissible level for residues of Bacillus pumilus strain BU F-33 under the FFDCA.
