The notice announces a change in EPA guidelines with respect to the classification of dried hops under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA). Under this revision, hops will be considered for regulatory purposes as a raw agricultural commodity in both the fresh (green) and dried forms. Previously, green hops have been considered a raw agricultural commodity (RAC), while dried hops have been classified as a processed food. EPA intends to apply this revised classification in all future regulatory actions involving hops, including those under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA).
