[EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-1017; FRL-9384-7]


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 and Table 2 of Unit II., pursuant to the 
Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). This 
cancellation order follows a February 20, 2013 Federal Register Notice 
of Receipt of Requests from the registrants listed in Table 3 of Unit 
II. to voluntarily cancel these product registrations. In the February 
20, 2013 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 noted in Unit IV of this 
cancellation order.

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 20, 2013 Federal Register notice announcing 
the Agency's receipt of the requests for voluntary cancellations of 
products listed in Table 1 and Table 2 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 and Table 2 of 
Unit II. Accordingly, the Agency hereby orders that the product 
registrations identified in Table 1 and Table 2 of Unit II. are 
canceled. The effective date of the cancellation of the products listed 
in Table 1 of this notice is May 1, 2013. The effective date of 
cancellation of the products listed in Table 2 is December 31, 2014. 
Any distribution, sale, or use of existing stocks of the products 
identified in Table 1 and Table 2 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 February 20, 2013 (78 FR 
11881) (FRL-9378-9). The comment period closed on March 22, 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.
    1. For Products 007173-00283 and 007173-00285 identified in Table 
1: Because the Agency has identified significant potential risk 
concerns associated with these pesticide products, EPA prohibits the 
sale or distribution of existing stocks by the registrant, except for 
export consistent with FIFRA section 17 or for proper disposal. Persons 
other than the registrant will be allowed to sell or distribute 
existing stocks of products, until such stocks are exhausted. Users 
will be allowed to use existing stocks regardless of the date of 
purchase until such stocks are exhausted, provided that such use is 
consistent with the terms of the previously approved labeling on, or 
that accompanied, the canceled product.
    2. For all other products identified in Table 1: The registrants 
may continue to sell and distribute existing stocks of products listed 
in Table 1 of Unit II. until May 1, 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.
    3. For all products listed in Table 2: After December 31, 2014, 
registrants are prohibited from selling or distributing existing stocks 
of products containing ODM. After December 31, 2016, persons other than 
registrants are prohibited from selling or distributing existing stocks 
of products containing ODM. After December 31, 2016, existing stocks of 
products containing ODM already in the possession of end users can be 
used legally until they are exhausted, provided that such use complies 
with the EPA-approved label and labeling of the affected product.
