Notice of Receipt of Requests to Voluntarily Cancel Certain 
Pesticide Registrations

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice.

SUMMARY: In accordance with section 6(f)(1) of the Federal Insecticide, 
Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), as amended, EPA is issuing a 
notice of receipt of requests by registrants to voluntarily cancel 
certain pesticide registrations. EPA intends to grant these requests at 
the close of the comment period for this announcement unless the Agency 
receives substantive comments within the comment period that would 
merit its further review of the requests, or unless the registrants 
withdraw their requests. If these request are granted, any sale, 
distribution, or use of products listed in this notice will be 
permitted after the registrations have been canceled only if such sale, 
distribution, or use is consistent with the terms as described in the 
final order.

DATES: Comments must be received on or before September 3, 2010.

(ID) number EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-1017, by one of the following methods:

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. General Information

A. Does this Action Apply to Me?

    This action is directed to the public in general, and may be of 
interest to a wide range of stakeholders including environmental, human 
health, and agricultural advocates; the chemical industry; pesticide 
users; and members of the public interested in the sale, distribution, 
or use of pesticides. If you have any questions regarding the 
information in this notice, consult the person listed under FOR FURTHER 
INFORMATION CONTACT.

B. What Should I Consider as I Prepare My Comments for EPA?

    1.  Submitting CBI. Do not submit this information to EPA through 
regulations.gov or e-mail. Clearly mark the part or all of the 
information that you claim to be CBI. For CBI information in a disk or 
CD-ROM that you mail to EPA, mark the outside of the disk or CD-ROM as 
CBI and then identify electronically within the disk or CD-ROM the 
specific information that is claimed as CBI. In addition to one 
complete version of the comment that includes information claimed as 
CBI, a copy of the comment that does not contain the information 
claimed as CBI must be submitted for inclusion in the public docket. 
Information so marked will not be disclosed except in accordance with 
procedures set forth in 40 CFR part 2.
    2.  Tips for preparing your comments. When submitting comments, 
remember to:
    i. Identify the document by docket ID number and other identifying 
information (subject heading, Federal Register date and page number).
     ii. Follow directions. The Agency may ask you to respond to 
specific questions or organize comments by referencing a Code of 
Federal Regulations (CFR) part or section number.
    iii. Explain why you agree or disagree; suggest alternatives and 
substitute language for your requested changes.
    iv. Describe any assumptions and provide any technical information 
and/or data that you used.
    v. If you estimate potential costs or burdens, explain how you 
arrived at your estimate in sufficient detail to allow for it to be 
reproduced.
    vi. Provide specific examples to illustrate your concerns and 
suggest alternatives.
    vii. Explain your views as clearly as possible, avoiding the use of 
profanity or personal threats.
    viii. Make sure to submit your comments by the comment period 
deadline identified.

II. What Action is the Agency Taking?

    This notice announces receipt by the Agency of requests from 
registrants to cancel 76 pesticide products registered under FIFRA 
section 3 or 24(c). These registrations are listed in sequence by 
registration number (or company number and 24(c) number) in Table 1 of 
this unit.
     Unless the Agency determines that there are substantive comments 
that warrant further review of the requests or the registrants withdraw 
their requests, EPA intends to issue an order in the Federal Register 
canceling all of the affected registrations.

III. 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. FIFRA further provides that, before acting on the request, 
EPA must publish a notice of receipt of any such request in the Federal 
Register.
     Section 6(f)(1)(B) of FIFRA requires that before acting on a 
request for voluntary cancellation, EPA must provide a 30-day public 
comment period on the request for voluntary cancellation or use 
termination. In addition, FIFRA section 6(f)(1)(C) requires that EPA 
provide a 180-day comment period on a request for voluntary 
cancellation or termination of any minor agricultural use before 
granting the request, unless:
    1. The registrants request a waiver of the comment period, or
    2. The EPA Administrator determines that continued use of the 
pesticide would pose an unreasonable adverse effect on the environment.
    The registrants in Table 2 of Unit II. have requested that EPA 
waive the 180-day comment period. Accordingly, EPA will provide a 30-
day comment period on the proposed requests.

IV. Procedures for Withdrawal of Request

    Registrants who choose to withdraw a request for cancellation 
should submit such withdrawal in writing to the person listed under FOR 
FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. If the products have been subject to a 
previous cancellation action, the effective date of cancellation and 
all other provisions of any earlier cancellation action are 
controlling.

V. Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks

     Existing stocks are those stocks of registered pesticide products 
that are currently in the United States (U.S.) and that were packaged, 
labeled, and released for shipment prior to the effective date of the 
cancellation action.

 A. Disposition of Existing Stocks For All Table 1 Products Except EPA 
Reg. No. 524-478

     Because the Agency has identified no significant potential risk 
concerns associated with these pesticide products, upon cancellation of 
the products identified in Table 1 of Unit II. (except EPA Reg. No. 
524-478), EPA anticipates allowing registrants to sell and distribute 
existing stocks of these products for 1 year after publication of the 
Cancellation Order in the Federal Register. Thereafter, registrants 
will be prohibited from selling, formulating or distributing the 
pesticides identified in Table 1 of Unit II., except for export 
consistent with FIFRA section 17 or for proper disposal. Persons other 
than registrants will generally be allowed to sell, distribute, or use 
existing stocks until such stocks are exhausted, provided that such 
sale, distribution, or use is consistent with the terms of the 
previously approved labeling on, or that accompanied, the canceled 
products.

 B. Disposition of Existing Stocks For EPA Reg. No. 524-478

     In accordance with a ``phase-out'' agreement negotiated with 
Monsanto Company in conjunction with an amendment request for EPA Reg. 
No. 524-478, all sale, distribution, and planting of Bollgard[reg] 
Cotton (EPA Reg. No. 524-478) is prohibited after July 1, 2010. The 
terms of the negotiated U.S. phase-out strategy include:
    1. Production of Bollgard[reg] Cotton (EPA Reg. No. 524-478) by 
Monsanto Company after September 30, 2009, is prohibited.
    2. All sales of Bollgard[reg] Cotton after September 30, 2009, are 
prohibited.
    3. Planting of Bollgard[reg] Cotton seed after midnight of July 1, 
2010, is prohibited.

[[Page 46932]]

    4. All Bollgard[reg] Cotton seed not planted on or before July 1, 
2010, must be returned either to the retailer or to Monsanto Company. 
As a consequence of the U.S. phase-out strategy for Bollgard[reg] 
Cotton, sale, distribution, and/or planting of Bollgard[reg] Cotton is 
prohibited. All existing stocks must be returned to Monsanto Company or 
to an authorized retailer. These prohibitions will be reflected in the 
pending final order cancelling the registration for Bollgard[reg] 
Cotton.
