AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION:

Notice.

SUMMARY:

In accordance with section 6(f)(1) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), as amended, EPA is issuing a notice of receipt of requests by the registrants to voluntarily cancel and/or amend their registrations to terminate uses of certain products containing the pesticide organic arsenicals. The organic arsenicals include the pesticides monosodium methanearsonate (MSMA), disodium methanearsonate (DSMA), calcium acid methanearsonate (CAMA), and cacodylic acid and its sodium salt. The requests would terminate the following uses of MSMA: Residential; forestry; non-bearing fruit and nuts; citrus, bearing and non-bearing; bluegrass, fescue and ryegrass grown for seed; drainage ditch banks; railroad, pipeline, and utility rights of way; fence rows; storage yards; and similar non-crop areas. In addition, the requests terminate all uses of MSMA in Florida except for use on cotton grown in Calhoun, Columbia, Escambia, Gadsden, Hamilton, Holmes, Jackson, Jefferson, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, Suwannee, Walton, and Washington counties. The requests would not terminate the last MSMA products registered for use in the United States. These requests for voluntary cancellation and amendment of MSMA containing products are the result of an agreement in principle signed by the EPA and the technical registrants of the organic arsenicals on January 16 and February 5, 2009. As part of the agreement, the registrants have requested voluntary cancellation of all products containing DSMA, CAMA, and cacodylic acid and its sodium salt. The requests would terminate the last DSMA, CAMA, and cacodylic acid and its sodium salt products registered for use in the United States. EPA intends to grant these requests at the close of the comment period for this announcement Start Printed Page 32597unless the Agency receives substantive comments within the comment period that would merit its further review of the requests, or unless the registrants withdraw their requests within this period. Upon acceptance of these requests, any sale, distribution, or use of products listed in this notice will be permitted only if such sale, distribution, or use is consistent with the terms as described in the final order.

DATES:

Comments must be received on or before August 7, 2009.

Specifically, the registrants have requested voluntary cancellation of all products containing DSMA, CAMA, cacodylic acid and its Start Printed Page 32598sodium salt. In addition, the registrants have requested that certain uses of MSMA be terminated in accordance with the agreement in principle. The requests would terminate the following uses of MSMA: Residential; forestry; non-bearing fruit and nuts; citrus, bearing and non-bearing; bluegrass, fescue and ryegrass grown for seed; drainage ditch banks; railroad, pipeline, and utility rights of way; fence rows; storage yards; and similar non-crop areas. In addition, the requests terminate all uses of MSMA in Florida except for use on cotton grown in Calhoun, Columbia, Escambia, Gadsden, Hamilton, Holmes, Jackson, Jefferson, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, Suwannee, Walton, and Washington counties. The requests would not terminate the last MSMA products registered for use in the United States. The requests would terminate the last DSMA, CAMA, and cacodylic acid and its sodium salt products registered for use in the United States.

III. What Action is the Agency Taking?

This notice announces receipt by the Agency of requests from registrants to cancel or amend to terminate uses of organic arsenicals product registrations. The affected products and the registrants making the requests are identified in Tables 1-3 of this unit.

Under section 6(f)(1)(A) of FIFRA, registrants may request, at any time, that their pesticide registrations be canceled or amended to terminate one or more pesticide uses. Section 6(f)(1)(B) of FIFRA requires that before acting on a request for voluntary cancellation, EPA must provide a 30-day public comment period on the request for voluntary cancellation or use termination. In addition, section 6(f)(1)(C) of FIFRA requires that EPA provide a 180-day comment period on a request for voluntary cancellation or termination of any minor agricultural use before granting the request, unless:

1. The registrants request a waiver of the comment period, or

2. The Administrator determines that continued use of the pesticide would pose an unreasonable adverse effect on the environment.

The organic arsenical registrants have requested that EPA waive the 180-day comment period. EPA will provide a 30-day comment period on the proposed requests.

Unless a request is withdrawn by the registrant within 30 days of publication of this notice, or if the Agency determines that there are substantive comments that warrant further review of this request, an order will be issued canceling or amending the affected registrations.

IV. What is the Agency's Authority for Taking this Action?

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 canceled or amended to terminate one or more uses. FIFRA further provides that, before acting on the request, EPA must publish a notice of receipt of any such request in the Federal Register. Thereafter, following the public comment period, the Administrator may approve such a request.

V. Procedures for Withdrawal of Request and Considerations for Reregistration of Organic Arsenicals

Registrants who choose to withdraw a request for cancellation must submit such withdrawal in writing to the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT, postmarked before August 7, 2009. This written withdrawal of the request for cancellation will apply only to the applicable FIFRA section 6(f)(1) request listed in this notice. If the products(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.

VI. Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks

Existing stocks are those stocks of registered pesticide products which are currently in the United States and which were packaged, labeled, and released for shipment prior to the effective date of the cancellation action. In any order issued in response to these requests for cancellation of product registrations, EPA proposes to include the following provisions for the treatment of any existing stocks of the Start Printed Page 32604products identified or referenced in Table 1 in Unit III.

In any order issued in response to these requests for amendments to terminate uses, the Agency proposes to include the following provisions for the treatment of any existing stocks of the products identified or referenced in Table 2 in Unit III.

The registrants have requested voluntary cancellation of the arsenic registrations identified in Table 1 and voluntary amendment to terminate certain uses of the arsenic registrations identified in Table 2. Pursuant to section 6(f) of FIFRA, EPA intends to grant the requests for voluntary cancellation and amendment.

As outlined in the organic arsenicals Agreement in Principle the following existing stocks dates are being proposed. EPA encourages stakeholders to submit comments on these existing stocks timeframes. Comments will be evaluated and the final existing stocks timeframes will be incorporated into the cancellation order which will be published in the Federal Register.

After December 31, 2009, registrants would be prohibited from selling or distributing existing stocks of products containing MSMA labeled for all uses, except cotton, sod farms, golf courses, and highway rights-of-way. Also, after December 31, 2009, registrants would be prohibited from selling or distributing existing stocks of products containing DSMA, CAMA, cacodylic acid and its sodium salt.

After June 30, 2010, persons other than registrants would be prohibited from selling or distributing existing stocks of products containing MSMA labeled for all uses, except cotton, sod farms, golf courses, and highway rights-of-way, and products containing DSMA, CAMA, and/or cacodylic acid and its sodium salt.

After December 31, 2010, use of products containing MSMA labeled for all uses, except cotton, sod farms, golf courses, and highway rights-of-way and products containing DSMA, CAMA, cacodylic acid and its sodium salt would be prohibited.

After December 31, 2012, registrants would be prohibited from selling or distributing existing stocks of products containing MSMA labeled for use on sod farms, golf courses, and highway rights-of-way.

After June 30, 2013, persons other than registrants would be prohibited from selling or distributing existing stocks of products containing MSMA labeled for use on sod farms, golf courses, and highway rights-of-way.

After December 31, 2013, use of products containing MSMA labeled for all uses, except cotton, would be prohibited.

If the request for voluntary cancellation and use termination is granted, the Agency intends to publish the cancellation order in the Federal Register.
