This regulation establishes an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for residues of n-octyl alcohol (CAS Reg. No. 111–87–5); and n-decyl alcohol (CAS Reg. No. 112–30–1) when used as an inert ingredient (solvent or co-solvent) in pesticide formulations applied to growing crops or to raw agricultural commodities after harvest under EPA regulations. Technology Sciences Group Inc., on behalf of AMVAC, Chemical Corporation, submitted a petition to EPA under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), requesting establishment of an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance. This regulation eliminates the need to establish a maximum permissible level for residues of n-octyl alcohol and n-decyl alcohol.
