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 of Unit II., pursuant to section 6(f)(1) 
of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), as 
amended. This cancellation order follows an August 4, 2010 Federal 
Register Notice of Receipt of Requests from the registrants listed in 
Table 2 of Unit II. to voluntarily cancel these product registrations. 
In the August 4, 2010 notice, EPA indicated that it would issue an 
order implementing the cancellations, unless the Agency received 
substantive comments within the 30-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. Further, 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 September 15, 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 August 4, 2010 Federal Register notice, announcing 
the Agency's receipt of the requests for voluntary cancellations of 
products listed in Table 1 of Unit II.

IV. Cancellation Order

    Pursuant to FIFRA section 6(f), EPA hereby approves the requested 
cancellations of the registrations identified in Table 1 of Unit II. 
Accordingly, the Agency hereby orders that the product registrations 
identified in Table 1 of Unit II are canceled. The effective date of 
the cancellations that are subject of this notice is September 15, 
2010. Any distribution, sale, or use of existing stocks of the products 
identified in Table 1 of Unit II. 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 August 4, 2010 (75 FR 46926) 
(FRL-8837-6), the comment period closed on September 3, 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.

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

    The registrants may continue to sell and distribute existing stocks 
of products listed in Table 1 of Unit II. (except EPA Reg. No. 524-478) 
until September 15, 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 of Unit II. (except 
EPA Reg. No. 524-478) until existing 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[supreg] 
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[supreg] Cotton (EPA Reg. No. 524-478) by 
Monsanto Company after September 30, 2009, is prohibited.

be returned either to the retailer or to Monsanto Company. As a 
consequence of the U.S. phase-out strategy for Bollgard[supreg] Cotton, 
sale, distribution, and/or planting of Bollgard[supreg] Cotton is 
prohibited. All existing stocks must be returned to Monsanto Company or 
to an authorized retailer.
