ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

[EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-1017; FRL-9377-2]


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 December 5, 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 December 5, 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 February 20, 2013.

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 December 5, 2012 (77 FR 72343) (FRL-9370-4) Federal 
Register notice announcing the Agency's receipt of the requests for 
voluntary cancellations of products listed in Table 1 of Unit II.

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 February 20, 
2013. 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 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 December 5, 2012. The comment 
period closed on January 4, 2013.

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 February 20, 2014, 
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 canceled products.
