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 January 26, 2011 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 January 26, 2011 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 March 23, 2011.

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 March 23, 2011. 
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 January 26, 2011 (76 FR 4692) 
(FRL-8856-9). The comment period closed on February 25, 2011.

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 of Unit II. until March 23, 2012, 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. 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.
