EPA is extending the comment period for an ANPRM document concerning potential revisions to current production regulations for producers of plant-incorporated protectants (PIPs) published in the Federal Register of April 4, 2007. This document extends the comment period for an additional 30 days. The comment period is extended because EPA received a request from the Association of American Pesticide Control Officials (AAPCO), the association representing State pesticide regulatory officials. The extended comment period will allow State regulators to consider the ANPRM at the State-FIFRA Issues Research and Evaluation Group (SFIREG) national meeting June 25-26, 2007, and submit comments representing the consensus of their membership.
