ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

[EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-1017; FRL-8889-7]


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 Tables 1, 2, and 3 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 5, 
2011 Federal Register Notice of Receipt of Requests from the 
registrants listed in Table 4 of Unit II. to voluntarily cancel these 
product registrations. In the August 5, 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 September 28, 2011.

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 5, 2011 Federal Register notice (76 FR 47579) 
(FRL-8882-9) announcing the Agency's receipt of the requests for 
voluntary cancellations of products listed in Tables 1, 2, and 3 of 
Unit II.

IV. Cancellation Order

    Pursuant to FIFRA section 6(f), EPA hereby approves the requested 
cancellations of the registrations identified in Tables 1, 2, and 3 of 
Unit II. Accordingly, the Agency hereby orders that the product 
registrations identified in Tables 1, 2, and 3 of Unit II. are 
cancelled. The effective date of the cancellations that are subject of 
this notice is September 28, 2011. Any distribution, sale, or use of 
existing stocks of the products identified in Tables 1, 2, and 3 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 August 5, 2011. The comment 
period closed on September 6, 2011.

VI. Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks

    Existing stocks are those stocks of registered pesticide products 
that are currently in the United States and that were packaged, 
labeled, and released for shipment prior to the effective date of the 
cancellation action. Upon cancellation of the products identified in 
Tables 1, 2, and 3 of Unit II., EPA will allow existing stocks 
provisions as follows:

A. Registrations Listed in Table 1 of Unit II Except Nos. 080490-00002, 
080490-00003, 080490-00004

    The Agency will allow registrants to sell and distribute existing 
stocks of these products until September 28, 2012. Thereafter, 
registrants are 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 
will generally be allowed to sell, distribute, or use existing stocks 
until such 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.

B. Registration Nos. 080490-00002, 080490-00003, 080490-00004

    The Agency will allow registrants to sell and distribute existing 
stocks of these products through September 30, 2011. Thereafter, 
registrants are prohibited from selling or distributing these pesticide 
products, except for export consistent with FIFRA section 17 or for 
proper disposal. Persons other than registrants will generally be 
allowed to sell, distribute, or use existing stocks until such 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.

C. Registrations Listed in Table 2 of Unit II

    The effective date of cancellation of these products is September 
28, 2011. The registrants are allowed to sell and distribute existing 
stocks until December 31, 2011. Thereafter, registrants are prohibited 
from selling or distributing these pesticide products, except for 
export consistent with FIFRA section 17 or for proper disposal.
    Persons other than the registrant will be allowed to sell and 
distribute existing stocks through April 30, 2012. After this date, 
remaining existing stocks may be

used until exhausted, provided that such use complies with the EPA-
approved label and labeling of the product.

D. Registrations Listed in Table 3 of Unit II

    The effective date of cancellation of these products is September 
28, 2011. EPA will not allow the continued sale and distribution of 
existing stocks of these products after the effective date of this 
cancellation for several reasons. First, there are currently no 
tolerances in effect for any of the food or feed crops associated with 
the domestic use of these products, and there have been none since the 
2009 tolerance revocations took effect on December 31, 2009 (May 15, 
2009, 74 FR 23046; FRL-8413-3). In addition, the Agency believes that 
little, if any existing stock remains in the hands of retailers, based 
on the sole registrant's repeated representation that no carbofuran 
products have been released for shipment since January 2010, and that 
they have offered to buy back unused carbofuran products. Consequently, 
sale of existing stocks of carbofuran is prohibited as of September 28, 
2011. Users may only use those carbofuran products labeled for non-food 
use (ornamentals, spinach grown for seed, and pine seedlings) on those 
specific crops and in accordance with all geographical restrictions. 
Any food or feed crops with carbofuran residues after this date will be 
considered adulterated and subject to seizure.
