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 Guar (edible) Gums from EPA Registrations 47870-1, Propylene Oxide, 47870-2, Propylene Oxide Technical, and 47870-3, Propoxide 892. A request to delete Guar (edible) Gums from these three registrations was previously published on May 24, 2006. The terms of the May 24, 2006 Federal Register notice are controlling with respect to these three registrations.

DATES:

Because this technical correction removes three use deletion requests, 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.
