III. Summary of Public Comments Received and Agency Response to 
Comments

    During the public comment period provided, EPA received no comments 
in response to the August 12, 2009, Federal Register notice announcing 
the Agency's receipt of the requests for voluntary cancellations of 
Aldicarb, Aliphatic Solvents, Carbaryl, Copper Salts, Copper Sulfate, 
Cypermethrin, Naphthalene Acetic Acid, Piperonyl

[[Page 48551]]

Butoxide, Resmethrin, 2,4-DB, and 2,4-DP.

 IV. Cancellation Order

    Pursuant to FIFRA section 6(f), EPA hereby approves the requested 
cancellations of Aldicarb, Aliphatic Solvents, Carbaryl, Copper Salts, 
Copper Sulfate, Cypermethrin, Naphthalene Acetic Acid, Piperonyl 
Butoxide, Resmethrin, 2,4-DB, and 2,4-DP registrations identified 
inTable 1. Accordingly, the Agency orders that the product 
registrations identified in Table 1 are hereby canceled. Any 
distribution, sale, or use of existing stocks of the products 
identified in Table 1 in a manner inconsistent with any of the 
Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks set forth in Unit VI. 
will be considered a violation of FIFRA.

V. What is the Agency's Authority for Taking this Action?

    Section 6(f)(1) of FIFRA provides that a registrant of a pesticide 
product may at any time request that any of its pesticide registrations 
be canceled or amended to terminate one or more uses. FIFRA further 
provides that, before acting on the request, EPA must publish a notice 
of receipt of any such request in the Federal Register. Thereafter, 
following the public comment period, the Administrator may approve such 
a request.

VI. Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks

    Existing stocks are those stocks of registered pesticide products 
which are currently in the United States and which were packaged, 
labeled, and released for shipment prior to the effective date of the 
cancellation action. The cancellation order issued in this notice 
includes the following existing stocks provisions.
    The effective date of cancellation will be the date of the 
cancellation order. The orders effecting these requested cancellations 
will generally permit a registrant to sell or distribute existing 
stocks until all stocks are exhausted, unless other factors (such as 
hazard) necessitate modified terms. Exceptions to this general rule 
will be made if a product poses a risk concern, or is in noncompliance 
with reregistration requirements, or is subject to a data call-in.
     Unless the provisions of an earlier order apply, existing stocks 
already in the hands of dealers or users can be distributed, sold, or 
used legally until they are exhausted, provided that such further sale 
and use comply with the EPA-approved label and labeling of the affected 
product. Exception to these general rules will be made in specific 
cases when more stringent restrictions on sale, distribution, or use of 
the products or their ingredients have already been imposed, as in a 
special review action, or where the Agency has identified significant 
potential risk concerns associated with a particular chemical.
