||This document presents EPA's decision regarding the Food Quality Protection Act (FQPA) tolerance reassessment for methyl bromide and reregistration eligibility of the commodity uses of the active ingredient methyl bromide. The Agency has conducted human health and environmental fate and effects risk assessments for methyl bromide and has made tolerance reassessment decisions for 140 tolerances related to all registered methyl bromide uses. Agency has determined that, with label amendments and changes as specified in this document, there is a reasonable certainty that no harm will result to the general U.S. population, infants, children, or other population subgroups, from methyl bromide's food commodity uses. Generally, registered methyl bromide application/fumigation uses fall into four basic categories that include: (1) pre-plant soil fumigations; (2) structural, industrial, and residential (3) post-harvest food commodity uses; and (4) other specialized fumigations. This decision document covers methyl bromide uses that have accompanying food residue tolerances for postharvest fumigation of food commodities in chambers at ports or specialized structural fumigations at food processing facilities. Although some methyl bromide uses such as fumigation of timber, wood products, and industrial equipment do not require a food residue tolerance, the Agency has included them in this reregistration decision since they are performed similar facilities and were assessed with a similar risk assessment methodology.
