EPA issued a notice in the Federal Register of March 17, 2004 (OPP-2004-0012; FRL-7346-8), announcing the cancellation of registrations for all manufacturing-use tributyltin methacrylate products used to formulate antifouling paints and one end-use tributyltin methacrylate antifouling paint registration.

This notice announces amendments to the March 17, 2004 cancellation order to correct the effective date of the amendments to registrations announced in that notice.

II. What Does this Correction Do?

The original cancellation orders for manufacturing-use products containing tributyltin methacrylate and labeled for use in formulating antifouling paints, and for the one end-use antifouling paint product containing tributyltin methacrylate, and for approval of the amendments to terminate the use of certain manufacturing-use products containing bis(tributyltin) oxide for formulating antifouling paints were published in the Federal Register on March 17, 2004; OPP-2004-0012; (FRL-7346-8). Today's notice corrects statements in Units II. and IV. of that cancellation order (on pages 12657 and 12658) to amend the effective date of cancellation consistent with the registrants' requests for use termination. The effective date of the use terminations cited in the March 17, 2004 notice was the date of publication of that notice (or March 17, 2004); the corrected effective date is April 15, 2004. The effective date of the registration cancellations where no use termination was requested remains as stated in the previous notice. The registrations affected by this correction and the effective date of the use terminations are listed in the table below.
