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 1a and 1b of Unit II., pursuant to the 
Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). This 
cancellation order follows a August 21, 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 August 21, 
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 October 30, 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 August 21, 2013 Federal Register notice (78 FR 
51721) (FRL-9396-5) announcing the Agency's receipt of the requests for 
voluntary cancellations of products listed in Table 1a and 1b of Unit 
II.

 IV. Cancellation Order

    Pursuant to FIFRA section 6(f), EPA hereby approves the requested 
cancellations of the registrations identified in Table 1a and 1b of 
Unit II. Accordingly, the Agency hereby orders that the product 
registrations identified in Table 1a and 1b of Unit II. are canceled. 
The effective date of the cancellations that are the subject of this 
notice is October 30, 2013. Any distribution, sale, or use of existing 
stocks of the products identified in Table 1a and 1b 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 of August 21, 2013. The comment period 
closed on September 20, 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.

A. For All Products Identified in Table 1a in Unit II

    The registrants may continue to sell and distribute existing stocks 
of products listed in Table 1a of Unit II. until October 30, 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 1a, 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 1a 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.

B. For All Tralkoxydim Products Identified in Table 1b in Unit II

    The registrants may continue to sell and distribute existing stocks 
of products listed in Table 1b of Unit II. until November 1, 2014. 
Thereafter, the registrants are prohibited from selling or distributing 
products listed in Table 1b, 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 1b 
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.
