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 25, 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 25, 2010 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 received comments on the notice but 
these comments were exclusively on the public health mosquitocide uses. 
Consequently, the public health pesticide products

[[Page 31607]]

containing resmethrin have been removed from this final cancellation 
order and will be addressed separately from other resmethrin products. 
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 June 1, 2011.

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

    The resmethrin docket was open for a 180-day comment period 
beginning on August 25, 2010. During that time, four comments were 
received on the Requests to Voluntarily Cancel Certain Pesticide 
Registrations. The comments were from two Florida counties, the IR-4 
Project in New Jersey, and ADAPCO, a business that provides mosquito 
control products and equipment. The comments were exclusively on the 
public health uses of resmethrin and are summarized in this unit.
Comments on the Public Health Mosquitocide Use
    1. Comments From the IR-4 Project. IR-4 commented that the number 
of pesticides available to control mosquitoes is limited, and that 
temephos is also being voluntarily cancelled at this time. They also 
commented that the Food Quality Protection Act created mechanisms to 
prevent public health pesticides from being driven off the market 
solely due to data needs. They point out that the proposed cancellation 
is voluntary, driven not by risk but rather by the small market and the 
high cost of data generation. Finally, IR-4 requests a 15-month 
moratorium on any regulatory action that would result in the loss of 
resmethrin or any other active ingredient defined as a public health 
pesticide by FQPA.
    2. EPA Response. EPA is currently reviewing the data supporting 
resmethrin use as a public health pesticide. A separate Federal 
Register Notice (75 FR 28019, May 19, 2010) (FRL-8825-7), announced the 
receipt of requests to voluntarily cancel those resmethrin products 
registered for use in wide area mosquito abatement. A number of 
entities which commented on that notice are currently coordinating to 
develop a Pest Management Strategic Plan to support the continued 
registration of resmethrin for public health use. Consequently, certain 
public health pesticide products containing remethrin have been removed 
from this final cancellation order and will be addressed separately 
from other resmethrin products.
    3. Comments From County Mosquito Districts. St. Lucie County and 
Manatee County both commented that the loss of mosquitocide vector 
control chemicals will result in increased public health risks due to 
mosquito-borne illnesses. Both pointed out that resmethrin is highly 
effective and has positive environmental attributes such as short-half 
life, no toxic metabolites, and minimal non-target impacts. St. Lucie 
County noted that resmethrin causes less allergic reaction in 
pesticide-sensitive individuals, and Manatee County maintained that 
resmethrin is one of few chemicals available for large scale Ultra Low 
Volume (ULV) adulticiding activities.
    4. EPA Response. See previous response. EPA recognizes the 
importance of public health pesticides and is addressing resmethrin 
public health use products separately.
    5. Comments From ADAPCO. ADAPCO commented on the danger of 
resistance development if more mosquitocide products are cancelled and 
operations are forced to depend on only a few options in chemistry. 
They noted that resmethrin can be used in environmentally sensitive 
areas against West Nile Virus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, and other 
vector-borne diseases, most often when efficacy is not achieved with 
cheaper formulations.
    6. EPA Response. See previous response. EPA recognizes the 
importance of public health pesticides and is addressing resmethrin 
public health use products separately. Several resmethrin products 
included in the August 25, 2010 (75 FR 52330) (FRL-8838-8) Federal 
Register Notice, specifically the public health uses, have been removed 
from this final cancellation order and will be addressed separately as 
noted in this Unit above. The remaining products will thus be cancelled 
per this notice.

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 June 1, 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 of August 25, 2010. The comment period 
closed on February 22, 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 December 31, 2012. 
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.
