registrations. In the September 7, 2011 and June 16, 2010 notices, 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 notices but none merited its further review of the 
requests. 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 May 23, 2012.

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

    EPA received one comment that was not substantive. Therefore, the 
Agency does not believe that the comment submitted during the comment 
period merits further review or a denial of the requests for voluntary 
cancellation.

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 May 23, 2012. 
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 September 7, 2011 (76 FR 
55385) (FRL-8887-1) and the issue of June 16, 2010 (75 FR 34117) (FRL-
8827-1). The comment periods closed on March 5, 2012 and December 13, 
2010, respectively.

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 May 23, 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.
