40 CFR Part 180

[EPA-HQ-OPP-2013-0210; FRL-9907-59]


[alpha]-Alkyl-[omega]-Hydroxypoly (Oxypropylene) and/or Poly 
(Oxyethylene) Polymers Where the Alkyl Chain Contains a Minimum of Six 
Carbons etc.; Exemption From the Requirement of a Tolerance; Technical 
Correction

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Final rule; technical correction.

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

SUMMARY: EPA issued a final rule in the Federal Register of February 3, 
2014, establishing an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for 
residues of [alpha]-alkyl-[omega]-hydroxypoly (oxypropylene) and/or 
poly (oxyethylene) polymers where the alkyl chain contains a minimum of 
six carbons, and [alpha]-alkyl-[omega]-hydroxypoly (oxypropylene) and/
or poly (oxyethylene) polymers where the alkyl chain contains a minimum 
of six carbons and a minimum number average molecular weight (in amu) 
1,100 when used as an inert ingredient as a surfactant in pesticide 
formulations in growing crops without limitations. The document 
inadvertently omitted Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) registry numbers 
from the regulatory text. This document corrects those errors.

DATES: This final rule correction is effective May 7, 2014.

ADDRESSES: The docket for this action, identified by docket 
identification (ID) number EPA-HQ-OPP-2013-0210, is available at http://www.regulations.gov or at the Office of Pesticide Programs Regulatory 
Public Docket (OPP Docket) in the Environmental Protection Agency

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Does this action apply to me?

    The Agency included in the Federal Register of February 3, 2014 (79 
FR 6092) (FRL-9394-2), a list of those who may be potentially affected 
by this action.

II. What does this technical correction do?

    EPA issued a final rule in the Federal Register of February 3, 2014 
(79 FR 6092), that established an exemption from the requirement of a 
tolerance for certain chemicals when used as an inert ingredient as a 
surfactant in pesticide formulations in growing crops without 
limitations. In the regulatory text, CAS registry numbers were 
inadvertently omitted under Sec. Sec.  180.910, 180.930, 180.940, and 
180.960.

III. Why is this correction issued as a final rule?

    Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 
553(b)(3)(B)) provides that, when an agency for good cause finds that 
notice and public procedure are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary 
to the public interest, the agency may issue a final rule without 
providing notice and an opportunity for public comment. EPA has 
determined that there is good cause for making this technical 
correction final without prior proposal and opportunity for comment, 
because this document merely corrects technical omissions. EPA finds 
that this constitutes good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B).

IV. Do any of the statutory and executive order reviews apply to this 
action?

    No. For a detailed discussion concerning the statutory and 
executive order review, refer to Unit VII. of the February 3, 2014 
final rule.

V. Congressional Review Act

    Pursuant to the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.), 
EPA will submit a report containing this rule and other required 
information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and 
the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication of 
the rule in the Federal Register. This action is not a ``major rule'' 
as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).
