ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

[EPA-HQ-OPP-2005-0494; FRL-8865-9]


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 a July 28, 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 July 28, 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 received a comment on the notice 
but it did not merit 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. 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 March 23, 2011.

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

    During the public comment period provided, EPA received no comments 
of merit in response to the July 28, 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 the date of 
publication of this cancellation order in the Federal Register. 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 of

[[Page 16417]]

July 28, 2010, (75 FR 44256) (FRL-8831-7). The comment period closed on 
August 27, 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.
    Because the Agency has potential risk concerns associated with 
these pesticide products identified in Table 1 of Unit II., EPA will 
allow registrants to sell and distribute existing stocks of these 
products until May 2011. Thereafter, registrants will be prohibited 
from selling 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 may sell, distribute, 
or use existing stocks of products listed in Table 1 of Unit II. until 
May 2011.
