III. Loss of Active Ingredients

    Unless the request for cancellation is withdrawn, one pesticide 
active ingredient will no longer appear in any registered products. 
Those who are concerned about the potential loss of this active 
ingredient for pesticidal use are encouraged to work directly with the 
registrant to explore the possibility of their withdrawing the request 
for cancellation. This active ingredient is listed in the following 
Table 3, with the EPA Company Number.


   Table 3. -- Active Ingredients which would Disappear as a Result of  
                    Registrants' Requests to Cancel                     
------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Cas No.            Chemical Name                EPA Company No.

IV. Procedures for Withdrawal of Request

    Registrants who choose to withdraw a request for cancellation must 
submit such withdrawal in writing to James A. Hollins, at the address 
given above, postmarked before December 29, 1994. This written 
withdrawal of the request for cancellation will apply only to the 
applicable 6(f)(1) request listed in this notice. If the product(s) 
have been subject to a previous cancellation action, the effective date 
of cancellation and all other provisions of any earlier cancellation 
action are controlling. The withdrawal request must also include a 
commitment to pay any reregistration fees due, and to fulfill any 
applicable unsatisfied data requirements.

V. Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks

    The effective date of cancellation will be the date of the 
cancellation order. The orders effecting these requested cancellations 
will generally permit a registrant to sell or distribute existing 
stocks for 1 year after the date the cancellation request was received. 
This policy is in accordance with the Agency's statement of policy as 
prescribed in Federal Register No. 123, Vol. 56, dated June 26, 1991. 
Exceptions to this general rule will be made if a product poses a risk 
concern, or is in noncompliance with reregistration requirements, or is 
subject to a data call-in. In all cases, product-specific disposition 
dates will be given in the cancellation orders.
    Existing stocks are those stocks of registered pesticide products 
which are currently in the United States and which have been packaged, 
labeled, and released for shipment prior to the effective date of the 
cancellation action. Unless the provisions of an earlier order apply, 
existing stocks already in the hands of dealers or users can be 
distributed, sold or used legally until they are exhausted, provided 
that such further sale and use comply with the EPA-approved label and 
labeling of the affected product(s). Exceptions to these general rules 
will be made in specific cases when more stringent restrictions on 
sale, distribution, or use of the products or their ingredients have 
already been imposed, as in Special Review actions, or where the Agency 
has identified significant potential risk concerns associated with a 
particular chemical.
