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 a January 11, 2012 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 January 11, 2012 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 
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 July 25, 2012.

denial of the requests for voluntary cancellation.

identified in Table 1 of Unit II. are cancelled. The effective date of 
the cancellations that are the subject of this notice is July 25, 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 January 11, 2012 (77 FR 1679) 
(FRL-9328-3). The comment period closed on July 9, 2012.

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 July 25, 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.
