II. What Does this Correction Do?

The original cancellation order for EPA Registration No. 44891-6, an antifouling paint product containing tributyltin methacrylate, was published in the Federal Register on February 16, 2005 (70 FR 7941)(OPP-2004-0365; FRL-7699-6). Today's notice corrects the effective date of cancellation as stated in that notice consistent with the registrant's request for voluntary cancellation and to allow formulation of the registrant's last remaining technical material. The Agency received a March 7, 2005 request from the registrant seeking such correction. The effective date of the cancellation cited in the February 16, 2005 notice was the date of publication of that notice (or February 16, 2005); the corrected effective date of cancellation is December 1, 2005. The change in the effective date of the cancellation extends the period during which the registrant may formulate the product but does not increase the overall amount of TBT material that will be available to be used for formulation. The technical material that will be available to be used for formulation during this time period was all within the registrant's possession and control at the time the registrant requested voluntary cancellation. The correction does not affect the existing stocks provision set forth in the cancellation order and the February 16, 2005 notice. The registration affected by this correction and the effective date of cancellation are shown in the table below.
