ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

[EPA-HQ-OPP-2010-0014; FRL-9365-9]


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 the Federal 
Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). This cancellation 
order follows a February 29, 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 February 29, 
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 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 October 17, 2012.

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 canceled. The effective date of 
the cancellations that are the subject of this notice is October 17, 
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. 
below, 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 canceled 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 29, 2012 (77 FR 
12299) (FRL-9336-2). The comment period closed on August 27, 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.

A. Registrations Listed in Table 1 of Unit II Except for Registration 
No. WA860012

    The registrants may continue to sell and distribute existing stocks 
of products listed in Table 1 of Unit II., except for Furadan 15 G 
Insecticide Nemanticide, with Registration No. WA860012, until October 
17, 2013, which is 1 year after the publication of

[[Page 63831]]

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
