it shall be unlawful to replace any class I or class II substance with

any  substitute  substance  which  the  Administrator  determines  may

Administrator has identified an alternative to such replacement that-

      "(1)  reduces  the  overall  risk   to  human  health  and  the

   environment; and

      "(2) is currently or  potentially available.  The Administrator

   shall publish a  list of (A) the substitutes prohibited under this

   subsection  for  specific  uses  and  (B)  the  safe  alternatives

Administrator  grants such  petition the  Administrator  shall publish

such  revised list within 6 months thereafter. Any petition under this

subsection  shall include a showing  by the petitioner  that there are

data  on  the  substance adequate  to  support  the  petition. If  the

under any  law  administered by  the  Administrator, to  acquire  such

information.
