EPA/OCSPP RIN: 2070-AK00 Publication ID: Spring 2017 
Title: Pesticides; Technical Amendments to Data Requirements 

EPA is proposing a correction pertaining to the "200 ppb level" described in 40 CFR section158.2230(d) to clarify that the 200 ppb level is based on total estimated daily dietary intake for an individual and not on the amount of residue present on a single food. This change is intended to enhance understanding of the data required to support an antimicrobial pesticide registration and does not alter the burden or costs associated with these requirements. EPA is not proposing any new data requirements or substantive revisions to existing requirements. This correction specifically satisfies one of the commitments in a settlement agreement reached with the American Chemistry Council that became effective on March 2, 2015. This settlement agreement is available in using the document ID number EPA-HQ-OPP-2008-0110-0139.
