Inert Reassessment Document for Nonyl, Decyl, and Undecyl Glycoside

A Federal Register Notice was published on September 14, 2005 (70 FR 54281), establishing an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for alkyl (C10C16) polyglycosides under 40 CFR 180.910 and 40 CFR 180.930. In that final rule it was concluded that alkyl (C10C16) polyglycosides is a chemical of lower toxicity and that there is a reasonable certainty of no harm from aggregate exposures to residues of alkyl (C10C16) polyglycosides.
