Product Cancellation Order for Certain Pesticide Registrations

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This notice announces EPA's order for the cancellations, 
voluntarily requested by the registrants and accepted by the Agency, of 
the products listed in Table 1, pursuant to section 6(f)(1) of the 
Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), as 
amended. This cancellation order follows a December 30, 2009 Federal 
Register Notice of Receipt of Requests from the registrants listed in 
Table 2 to voluntarily cancel these product registrations. In the 
December 30, 2009 notice, EPA indicated that it would issue an order 
implementing the cancellations unless the Agency received substantive 
comments within the 180-day comment period that would merit its further 
review of these requests or unless the registrants withdrew their 
requests. The Agency did not receive any comments on the notice. The 
registrants did not withdraw their requests. Accordingly, EPA hereby 
issues in this notice a cancellation order granting the requested 
cancellations. Any distribution, sale, or use of the products subject 
to this cancellation order is permitted only in accordance with the 
terms of this order, including any existing stocks provisions.

DATES: The cancellations are effective July 28, 2010.

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 December 30, 2009 Federal Register notice 
announcing the Agency's receipt of the requests for voluntary 
cancellations of products listed in Table 1.

IV. Cancellation Order

    Pursuant to FIFRA section 6(f), EPA hereby approves the requested 
cancellations of the registrations identified in Table 1. Accordingly, 
the Agency hereby orders that the product registrations identified in 
Table 1 are canceled. The effective date of the cancellations that are 
subject of this notice is July 28, 2010. 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 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 EPA Administrator may approve 
such a request. The notice of receipt for this action was published for 
comment in the Federal Register issue of December 30, 2009 (74 FR 
69090) (FRL-8804-6). The comment period closed on June 28, 2010.

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 existing stocks provisions for the products 
subject to this order are as follows.
     The registrants may continue to sell and distribute existing 
stocks of products listed in Table 1 until July 28, 2011, which is 1 
year after the publication of the Cancellation Order in the Federal 
Register. Thereafter, the registrants are prohibited from selling or 
distributing products listed in Table 1, except for export in 
accordance with FIFRA section 17, or proper disposal. Persons other 
than the registrants may sell, distribute, or use existing stocks of 
products listed in Table 1 until existing stocks are exhausted, 
provided that such

[[Page 44249]]

sale, distribution, or use is consistent with the terms of the 
previously approved labeling on, or that accompanied, the canceled 
products.
