EPA/OCSPP RIN: 2070-AK06 Publication ID: Spring 2018 
Title: Pesticides; Procedural Rule Amendment; Requirement for Certain Pesticide Actions to Publish Notices in the Federal Register 
Abstract:

The EPA is considering revising several procedural regulations that require the Agency to use a notice that is published in the Federal Register to provide information and notice concerning registration of a pesticide product with a new active ingredient or new use; announce approvals of specific quarantine and public health exemptions; and summaries of certain State registrations. For Registration Review, the EPA intends to announce availability of the documents that are currently announced in the Federal Register on the EPA's Registration Review website. As is current practice with notices of availability announced in the Federal Register, EPA intends to direct the public to a case-specific docket on Regulations.gov to view pertinent registration review documents and provide comment. When adopted for use in these regulations, use of the Federal Register as the mechanism for informing the public and other interested parties was not only common practice, it was considered the most effective and efficient mechanism available to Federal agencies. Recognizing that the Federal Register is no longer the most cost effective or efficient way for providing notice or sharing information with the public, the EPA is considering changing these requirements. Instead, the same information would be provided on the Agency's website. The EPA intends to develop a consolidated website to post this type of information, which will be more accessible to the public and other interested parties, as well as a more cost effective and efficient mechanism for providing timely updates.
