Action Code Interpretation:

An application that proposes an additional seed treatment use for any U.S. registered active ingredient for food use or non-food use seed treatment.  In order for a seed treatment to be considered in this category when proposed for seed treatment use on a food crop, data from a radiotracer study must be available showing no uptake of residues (radioactivity) from treated seed into the aerial portion of the growing crop and guidance is available. If residues occur in the aerial portion of the plant, or if there is no data available to make this determination, seed treatments are considered to be food uses requiring tolerances and fall into a different category.  Examples of food uses are corn, soybean, and wheat.   If a seed treatment use is proposed on ornamental seed or other non-food use seed treatment then the application would be in this category because it is known, without consideration of any data, that a tolerance is not required. The fee applies to each seed treatment use requested up to 5 uses (i.e. the fee for this category is multiplied by 4 if 4 seed uses are proposed).  If a crop group or subgroup is requested, the fee is based on the number of representative crops in that group or subgroup that are not currently registered.  If all of the representative crops have been registered, then requesting the crop group will count as one additional use.  If  a numerical tolerance needs to be established, the application does not belong in this category.   If six or more seed treatment uses are being proposed, this is not the correct category (see R274).
