Applicability in Indian Country

Under an administrative finding EPA issued on May 6, 2013 (http://www.epa.gov/oppfead1/tribes/2013/fifra-section2-ee.pdf), use of an EPA registered pesticide that has additional uses approved under FIFRA Section 18 could potentially occur in areas of Indian country that are within the geographic boundaries of the state(s) or county(ies) where the use has been approved by the emergency exemption. Therefore, applicants for a FIFRA Section 18 exemption may wish to consider discussing their request with tribes that may be affected to see if any tribal concerns exist and can be addressed.
