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 November 20, 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 November 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. However, the Agency 
did receive notice via letter dated December 18, 2013 from the 
registrant Nufarm Americas Inc. to withdraw their voluntary 
cancellation request for products EPA Reg. Nos. 33688-2 (Nufarm S.A. 
Technical Butralin) and EPA Reg. No. 33688-4 (Tamex 3EC). Accordingly, 
EPA hereby issues in this notice a cancellation order granting the 
requested withdrawals and 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. In addition, for pertinent information relating to the 
pesticide registrations for ME030004 and ME980001 as published in the 
November 20, 2013 notice, see Unit II. of this notice.

DATES: The cancellations are effective March 13, 2014.

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. Since others also may be interested, the Agency 
has not attempted to describe all the specific entities that may be 
affected by this action.

B. How can I get copies of this document and other related information?

    The docket for this action, identified by docket identification 
(ID) number EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-1017, is available at http://www.regulations.gov or at the Office of Pesticide Programs Regulatory 
Public Docket (OPP Docket) in the

[[Page 14248]]

Environmental Protection Agency Docket Center (EPA/DC), EPA West Bldg., 
Rm. 3334, 1301 Constitution Ave. NW., Washington, DC 20460-0001. The 
Public Reading Room is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through 
Friday, excluding legal holidays. The telephone number for the Public 
Reading Room is (202) 566-1744, and the telephone number for the OPP 
Docket is (703) 305-5805. Please review the visitor instructions and 
additional information about the docket available at http://www.epa.gov/dockets.

II. What action is the agency taking?

    This notice announces the cancellation, as requested by 
registrants, of products registered under FIFRA section 3. These 
registrations are listed in sequence by registration number in Table 1 
of this unit.
    The Agency also received notice via letter dated December 18, 2013 
from the registrant Nufarm Americas Inc. to withdraw their voluntary 
cancellation request for products EPA Reg. No. 33688-2 (Nufarm S.A. 
Technical Butralin) and EPA Reg. No. 33688-4 (Tamex 3EC). Thus, these 
registrations have been removed from this cancellation order notice. In 
addition, pesticide registration numbers ME030004 and ME980001 and its 
contents have been removed from the listing in Table 1. EPA 
inadvertently listed the pesticide product names Glypro and RH-5992 2F 
Experimental Insecticide for pesticide registration numbers ME030004 
and ME980001, respectively, in the Federal Register of November 20, 
2013 (78 FR 69666) (FRL 9902-40). Therefore, this action excludes 
pesticide registration numbers ME030004 and ME980001 from cancellation 
at this time. EPA will reissue pesticide product numbers ME030004 and 
ME980001 for voluntary cancellation in a future Federal Register 
notice.

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

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 March 13, 
2014. 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

[[Page 14250]]

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 November 20, 2013 (78 FR 
69666) (FRL-9902-40). The comment period closed on December 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

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

with the terms of the previously approved labeling on, or that 
accompanied, the canceled products.

    The registrant may continue to sell and distribute existing stocks
