II. What Action is the Agency Taking?

    The organic arsenicals include the pesticides monosodium 
methanearsonate (MSMA), disodium methanearsonate (DSMA), calcium acid 
methanearsonate (CAMA), and cacodylic acid and its sodium salt. The 
requests terminate the following uses of MSMA: Residential; forestry; 
non-bearing fruit and nuts; citrus, bearing and non-bearing; bluegrass, 
fescue and ryegrass grown for seed; drainage ditch banks; railroad, 
pipeline, and utility rights of way; fence rows; storage yards; and 
similar non-crop areas. In addition, the requests terminate all uses of 
MSMA in Florida except for use on cotton grown in Calhoun, Columbia, 
Escambia, Gadsden, Hamilton, Holmes, Jackson, Jefferson, Okaloosa, 
Santa Rosa, Suwannee, Walton, and Washington counties. The requests 
would not terminate the last MSMA products registered for use in the 
United States. These requests for voluntary cancellation and amendment 
of MSMA containing products are the result of an agreement in principle 
signed by the EPA and the technical registrants of the

[[Page 50188]]

organic arsenicals on January 16 and February 5, 2009. The registrants 
have requested voluntary cancellation of all products containing DSMA, 
CAMA, cacodylic acid and its sodium salt in accordance with the 
agreement. The requests would terminate the last DSMA, CAMA, and 
cacodylic acid and its sodium salt products registered for use in the 
United States. In the July 8, 2009 Notice, EPA indicated that it would 
issue an order implementing the cancellations and amendments to 
terminate uses, unless the Agency received substantive comments within 
the 30-day comment period that would merit its further review of these 
requests, or unless the registrant(s) withdrew their request(s) within 
this period. The Agency received comments on the notice but none 
merited its further review of the requests. Further, the registrants 
did not withdraw their requests. Accordingly, EPA hereby issues in this 
notice a cancellation order granting the requested cancellations and 
amendments to terminate uses. Any distribution, sale, or use of the 
organic arsenical products subject to this cancellation order is 
permitted only in accordance with the terms of this order, including 
any existing stocks provisions.
    This notice announces the cancellation and amendments to terminate 
uses, as requested by registrants, of end-use and manufacturing-use 
organic arsenical products registered under section 3 of FIFRA. These 
registrations are listed in sequence by registration number in Tables 1 
and 2 of this unit.

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

    Comments were received on the dates for disposition of existing 
stocks of products containing the organic arsenicals. Based on these 
comments, some of the dates have been amended.

IV. Cancellation Order

    Pursuant to FIFRA section 6(f), EPA hereby approves the requested 
cancellations and amendments to terminate uses of organic arsenical 
registrations identified in Tables 1 and 2 of Unit II. Accordingly, the 
Agency orders that the organic arsenical product registrations 
identified in Tables 1 and 2 of Unit II. are hereby canceled and 
amended to terminate the affected uses. Any distribution, sale, or use 
of existing stocks of the products identified in Tables 1 and 2 of Unit 
II. 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.
    After December 31, 2009, registrants are prohibited from selling or 
distributing existing stocks of products containing MSMA labeled for 
all uses, except cotton, sod farms, golf courses, and highway rights-
of-way. Also, after December 31, 2009 registrants are prohibited from 
selling or distributing existing stocks of products containing DSMA, 
CAMA, cacodylic acid and its sodium salt.
    After December 31, 2010, persons other than registrants are 
prohibited from selling or distributing existing stocks of products 
containing MSMA labeled for all uses, except cotton, sod farms, golf 
courses, and highway rights-of-way, and products containing DSMA, CAMA, 
and/or cacodylic acid and its sodium salt.
    After December 31, 2010, existing stocks of products containing 
MSMA labeled for all uses, except cotton, sod farms, golf courses, and 
highway rights-of-way and products containing DSMA, CAMA, cacodylic 
acid and its sodium salt, already in the hands of users can be used 
legally until they are exhausted, provided that such use complies with 
the EPA-approved label and labeling of the affected product.
    After December 31, 2012, registrants are prohibited from selling or 
distributing existing stocks of products containing MSMA labeled for 
use on sod farms, golf courses, and highway rights-of-way.

way. After December 31, 2013, use of products containing MSMA labeled
