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 through 4 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 February 22, 
2012, Federal Register Notice of Receipt of Requests from the 
registrants listed in Table 5 of Unit II. to voluntarily cancel these 
product registrations. In the February 22, 2012, 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 as provided in Unit VI.

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 February 22, 2012, Federal Register notice 
announcing the Agency's receipt of the requests for voluntary 
cancellations of products listed in Tables 1 through 4 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 through 4 of 
Unit II. Accordingly, the Agency hereby orders that the product 
registrations identified in Tables 1 through 4 of Unit II. are 
cancelled. The effective date of the cancellations that are the subject 
of this notice can be found in Unit VI. Any distribution, sale, or use 
of existing stocks of the products identified in Tables 1 through 4 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 February 22, 2012 (77 FR 
10516) (FRL-9336-4). The comment period closed on March 23, 2012.

VI. Effective Dates of Cancellation and 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:

A. Registrations Listed in Table 1 of Unit II

    The effective date of cancellation of these products is May 2, 
2012. The registrants may continue to sell and distribute existing 
stocks of products listed in Table 1 of Unit II. until May 2, 2013, 
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.

B. Registrations Listed in Table 2 of Unit II

    The effective date of cancellation of these products is July 31, 
2013. The registrants will be allowed to sell and distribute existing 
stocks of products containing fenarimol until July 31, 2013. 
Thereafter, registrants will be 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 July 31, 2015. After this date, 
remaining existing stocks of products containing fenarimol labeled for
