EPA/OCSPP RIN: 2070-AK00 Publication ID: Fall 2019 
Title: Pesticides; Technical Amendments to the Data Requirements 
Abstract:

EPA is proposing several non-substantive amendments to the data requirements in part 158 that will update the test guideline references, and make other technical corrections to simplify the tables and ensure consistency throughout part 158. For example, the phrases "test notes" and "table notes" are both used to reference the notes that relate to the tables. For consistency and since the use of "test note" is more prevalent, EPA is proposing to change "table note" to "test note." These changes are intended to enhance understanding of the data required to support a pesticide registration and do not increase the burden or costs associated with these requirements. EPA is not proposing any new data requirements or substantive revisions to existing requirements. If anything, these corrections may provide a minor reduction in burden and costs by decreasing the frequency and time associated with the need for applicants to seek clarification from EPA.
