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)

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 19, 2011 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. One comment was received during the 180-day 
comment period, but did not merit

further review of the requests to voluntarily cancel certain pesticide 
registrations. 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.

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

    During the public comment period provided, EPA received one comment 
in response to the January 19, 2011 Federal Register notice announcing 
the Agency's receipt of the requests for voluntary cancellations of 
products listed in Table 1 of Unit II regarding the export of cancelled 
pesticide products. This comment was not relevant to the request to 
voluntarily cancel certain pesticide registrations. For more 
information regarding EPA's export policies for cancelled pesticides, 
see FIFRA section 17.

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 cancelled. The effective date of 
the cancellations that are the subject of this notice is August 31, 
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 cancelled 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 19, 2011 (76 FR 3138) 
(FRL-8857-1). The comment period closed on July 14, 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 August 30, 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 cancelled products.
    Certain requests to voluntarily cancel pesticide products announced 
in the January 19, 2011 6(f) Notice, (FRL-8857-1) were omitted from 
this cancellation order because those products were cancelled in a 
previously published document. The effective date of cancellation of 
those products was July 15, 2011 as stated in the cancellation order 
titled: ``Cancellation of Pesticides for Non-Payment of Year 2011 
Registration Maintenance Fees.'' The cancellation order was published 
July 27, 2011 (76 FR 44907) (FRL-8879-8) and can be found in docket 
EPA-HQ-OPP-2011-0558. See EPA docket EPA-HQ-OPP-2011-0558; FRL-8879-8 
for a list of those registration numbers.
