Action Code Interpretation
An application that proposes a new non-food use for an inert ingredient which is proposed to be compositionally similar with a similar use pattern to an approved non-food use inert ingredient. The compositionally similar non-food use inert ingredient must be cited by the applicant and have been previously assessed by OPP and approved for use. Additionally, the applicant must demonstrate that the substantially similar inert ingredient does not differ in ways that would increase the risk of unreasonable adverse effects. A non-food use includes a proposed use that is not a food use as described in the food use categories. Non-food uses could include treatment of ornamentals, turf uses, structural protection, residential use, cooling tower treatments, aquatic area application (e.g., wastewater treatment), oil fields (marine and terrestrial), sewage treatment plants (water is treated prior to discharge into the environment), wood preservatives, antifoulants, ballast water, residential use (e.g., carpet sanitizer, hard surface disinfectant), commercial, institutional, industrial premise and equipment (e.g. offices, hotels, industrial buildings, nursing homes), agricultural premise treatment (e.g., farm structures, buildings and equipment, animal drinking water), materials preservatives (e.g., adhesives, coatings, plastic, fabric), industrial processes and water systems treatment (e.g., reverse osmosis water systems, recirculating cooling tower systems, evaporative condensers), medical premises and equipment (e.g., dental equipment, dental unit water lines, hospitals), HVAC, swimming pools, and spas. Prior to a submission under this category OPP highly recommends the applicant request a meeting with the Agency to ensure that no additional data are required. Additional information regarding applications for approval of new non-food use inert ingredients can be found at http://www.epa.gov/opprd001/inerts/nonfood_inert.pdf (3 pp 24.27 k PDF).

If another covered application intends to associate with and depend upon an already pending application for an inert ingredient approval in this category, the dependent application must identify the pending inert ingredient action with its inert approval tracking number assigned by the Agency, name of the inert ingredient(s) that is pending and the inert ingredientís applicantís name. Due to CBI concerns, the Agency will not provide information to the applicant of the dependent covered application regarding the status of the pending inert ingredient approval action beyond information that must be shared to adjust decision review times for the dependent application as discussed below. All other information on the inert ingredientís approval action MUST come from the inert ingredient applicant.

The decision review time due date for the dependent covered application will be extended to match the decision review time due date of the pending inert ingredient approval action, unless the decision review time due data for the dependent covered application is further out, in which case the dependent covered application will initially be subject to its own decision review time.

If the application covers multiple ingredients grouped by EPA into one chemical class, a single registration service fee will be assessed for approval of those ingredients.
