ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

[EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-1017; FRL-9396-3]


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 June 12, 2013 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 June 12, 2013 
Federal Register 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 received two comments on the June 12, 2013 Federal 
Register notice but only one 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 September 20, 2013.

III. Summary of Public Comments Received and Agency Response to 
Comments

    The Agency received two comments on the voluntary cancellation 
notice but only one merited its further review of the requests. The one 
comment the Agency received that merited further review of the requests 
was a comment regarding the request for voluntary cancellation of 
tralkoxydim registrations. The comment was submitted by Dow 
AgroSciences Canada Inc. (DASCI), and requested that, as a result of 
DASCI's interests in Canada, the EPA retain the U.S. tolerances that 
currently exist for tralkoxydim for import purposes. The comment 
submitted by DASCI does not impact the Agency's decision to grant the 
request for voluntary cancellation of the tralkoxydim registrations. 
EPA is not proposing any tolerance actions for tralkoxydim at this 
time. If any tolerance actions are necessary in the future, there will 
be an announcement in the Federal Register and there will be a public 
comment period on the proposed action. For these reasons, the Agency 
does not believe that the comments submitted during the comment period 
merit further review or

[[Page 57852]]

a denial of the requests for voluntary cancellation.

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 September 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 June 12, 2013 (78 FR 35268) 
(FRL-9388-5). The comment period closed on July 12, 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 000100-01104 and 000100-01130 identified in Table 1 
of Unit II.:
    Thereafter, registrants will be prohibited from selling or 
distributing the products 000100-0114 and 000100-01130 identified in 
Table 1 of Unit II., except for export in accordance with FIFRA section 
17, or proper disposal.
    The registrant may continue to sell and distribute the existing 
stocks of these products until November 1, 2014. Persons other than the 
registrant may sell, distribute, or use existing stocks of these 
products 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.
    2. For all other products identified in Table 1 of Unit II.:
    The registrants may continue to sell and distribute existing stocks 
of products listed in Table 1 of Unit II., until September 22, 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 of Unit II., 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.
