The U.S. nominated 37% of baseline for a Critical Use Exemption in 2006. This nomination covers exemptions for 17 crops or uses, including tomatoes, strawberries, peppers, cucurbits, and orchard replants. In addition, it should be noted that the United States submitted a supplemental request for a CUE in 2005, amounting to an additional 2% of the 1991 baseline levels.

After the Parties to the Protocol authorize critical uses, EPA annual promulgates a notice-and-comment rulemaking to exempt methyl bromide production and import for approved critical users.
