Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION:

Notice.

SUMMARY:

On September 1, 2006, EPA issued a Notice of Receipt of Requests for Amendments by Registrants to Delete Uses in Certain Pesticide Registrations. 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 amended to delete one or more uses. FIFRA further provides that, before acting on the request, EPA must publish a notice of receipt of any request in the Federal Register. The September 1 Notice inadvertently included a request to delete both cotton and pome fruit from EPA Registration 264-805, Thiacloprid Technical, and EPA Registration 264-806, Calypso 4 Flowable Insecticide. The Notice should have listed a request to delete only cotton from these registrations.

DATES:

Because this technical correction removes one use deletion request, the effective date for the remaining use deletions remains unchanged from the September 1 Notice. The remaining deletions are effective February 28, 2007, unless the Agency receives a written withdrawal request on or before February 28, 2007. The Agency will consider a withdrawal request postmarked no later than February 28, 2007.

Users of these products who desire continued use on crops or sites being deleted should contact the applicable registrant on or before February 28, 2007.
