SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. General Information

A. Does this action apply to me?

    This action is directed to the public in general, and may be of 
interest to a wide range of stakeholders including environmental, human 
health, and agricultural advocates; the chemical industry; pesticide 
users; and members of the public interested in the sale, distribution, 
or use of pesticides.

B. What should I consider as I prepare my comments for EPA?

    1. Submitting CBI. Do not submit this information to EPA through 
regulations.gov or email. Clearly mark the part or all of the 
information that you claim to be CBI. For CBI information in a disk or 
CD-ROM that you mail to EPA, mark the outside of the disk or CD-ROM as 
CBI and then identify electronically within the disk or CD-ROM the 
specific information that is claimed as CBI. In addition to one 
complete version of the comment that includes information claimed as 
CBI, a copy of the comment that does not contain the information 
claimed as CBI must be submitted for inclusion in the public docket. 
Information so marked will not be disclosed except in accordance with 
procedures set forth in 40 CFR part 2.
    2. Tips for preparing your comments. When submitting comments, 
remember to:
    i. Identify the document by docket ID number and other identifying 
information (subject heading, Federal Register date and page number).
    ii. Follow directions. The Agency may ask you to respond to 
specific questions or organize comments by referencing a Code of 
Federal Regulations (CFR) part or section number.
    iii. Explain why you agree or disagree; suggest alternatives and 
substitute language for your requested changes.
    iv. Describe any assumptions and provide any technical information 
and/or data that you used.
    v. If you estimate potential costs or burdens, explain how you 
arrived at

[[Page 35269]]

your estimate in sufficient detail to allow for it to be reproduced.
    vi. Provide specific examples to illustrate your concerns and 
suggest alternatives.
    vii. Explain your views as clearly as possible, avoiding the use of 
profanity or personal threats.
    viii. Make sure to submit your comments by the comment period 
deadline identified.

II. What action is the Agency taking?

    This notice announces receipt by the Agency of requests from 
registrants to cancel 45 pesticide products registered under FIFRA 
section 3 or 24(c). These registrations are listed in sequence by 
registration number (or company number and 24(c) number) in Table 1. of 
this unit.
    Unless the Agency determines that there are substantive comments 
that warrant further review of the requests or the registrants withdraw 
their requests, EPA intends to issue an order in the Federal Register 
canceling all of the affected registrations.

III. 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. FIFRA further provides that, before acting on the request, 
EPA must publish a notice of receipt of any such request in the Federal 
Register.
    Section 6(f)(1)(B) of FIFRA requires that before acting on a 
request for voluntary cancellation, EPA must provide a 30-day public 
comment period on the request for voluntary cancellation or use 
termination. In addition, FIFRA section 6(f)(1)(C) requires that EPA 
provide a 180-day comment period on a request for voluntary 
cancellation or termination of any minor agricultural use before 
granting the request, unless:
    1. The registrants request a waiver of the comment period, or
    2. The EPA Administrator determines that continued use of the 
pesticide would pose an unreasonable adverse effect on the environment.
    The registrants in Table 2. of Unit II. have requested that EPA 
waive the 180-day comment period. Accordingly, EPA will provide a 30-
day comment period on the proposed requests.

IV. Procedures for Withdrawal of Request

    Registrants who choose to withdraw a request for cancellation 
should submit such withdrawal in writing to the person listed under FOR 
FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. If the products have been subject to a 
previous cancellation action, the effective date of cancellation and 
all other provisions of any earlier cancellation action are 
controlling.

V. Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks

    Existing stocks are those stocks of registered pesticide products 
that are currently in the United States and that were packaged, 
labeled, and released for shipment prior to the effective date of the 
cancellation action. Because the Agency has identified no significant 
potential risk concerns associated with these pesticide products, upon 
cancellation of the products identified in Table 1. of Unit II., EPA 
anticipates allowing registrants to sell and distribute existing stocks 
of these products (except for registration no. 000100-01104 and 000100-
01130) for 1 year after publication of the cancellation order in the 
Federal Register. Thereafter, registrants will be prohibited from 
selling or distributing the pesticides identified in Table 1. of Unit 
II., except for export consistent with FIFRA section 17 or for proper 
disposal. Persons other than registrants will generally be allowed to 
sell, distribute, or use existing stocks until such 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.
    The continued sale and distribution of existing stocks of these 
products (registration no. 000100-01104 and 000100-01130) will be 
allowed through November 1, 2014. Additionally, the use of existing 
stocks of these products will be allowed until those existing stocks 
are exhausted.
