Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
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 all remaining registrations of products containing the pesticide resmethrin. The requests would terminate all resmethrin products registered for use in the United States. EPA intends to grant these requests at the close of the comment period for this announcement unless 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. If these requests are granted, any sale, distribution, or use of products listed in this notice will be permitted after the registration has been canceled only if such sale, distribution, or use is consistent with the terms as described in the final order. Resmethrin users or anyone else that desires the retention of Start Printed Page 52331a resmethrin registration should contact the applicable registrants during the comment period.
Comments must be received on or before February 22, 2011.

A. Does this Action Apply to Me?
This action is directed to the public in general, and may be of interest to a wide range of stakeholders including environmental, human health, and agricultural advocates; the chemical industry; pesticide users; and members of the public interested in the sale, distribution, or use of pesticides. Since others also may be interested, the Agency has not attempted to describe all the specific entities that may be affected by this action. If you have any questions regarding the applicability of this action to a particular entity, consult the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.
B. What Should I Consider as I Prepare My Comments for EPA?
1. Submitting CBI. Do not submit this information to EPA through regulations.gov or e-mail. Clearly mark the part or all of the information that you claim to be CBI. For CBI information in a disk or CD-ROM that you mail to EPA, mark the outside of the disk or CD-ROM as CBI and then identify electronically within the disk or CD-ROM the specific information that is claimed as CBI. In addition to one complete version of the comment that includes information claimed as CBI, a copy of the comment that does not contain the information claimed as CBI must be submitted for inclusion in the public docket. Information so marked will not be disclosed except in accordance with procedures set forth in 40 CFR part 2.
2. Tips for preparing your comments. When submitting comments, remember to:
i. Identify the document by docket ID number and other identifying information (subject heading, Federal Register date and page number).
ii. Follow directions. The Agency may ask you to respond to specific questions or organize comments by referencing a Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) part or section number.
iii. Explain why you agree or disagree; suggest alternatives and substitute language for your requested changes.
iv. Describe any assumptions and provide any technical information and/or data that you used.
v. If you estimate potential costs or burdens, explain how you arrived at your estimate in sufficient detail to allow for it to be reproduced.
vi. Provide specific examples to illustrate your concerns and suggest alternatives.
vii. Explain your views as clearly as possible, avoiding the use of profanity or personal threats.
viii. Make sure to submit your comments by the comment period deadline identified.
II. Background on the Receipt of Requests to Cancel Registrations
This notice announces receipt by EPA of requests from registrants to cancel all resmethrin product registrations. Resmethrin is a member of the pyrethroid class of pesticides. It is used to control a broad spectrum of flying and crawling insects in residential, commercial and industrial settings as well as in animal living areas. It is used as a crack and crevice spray and enclosed space fog in food handling establishments. There are no agricultural uses registered for resmethrin.
The registrants have requested voluntary cancellation of these resmethrin containing products due to the pending cancellation of the technical product. The 2006 Resmethirn Reregistration Eligibility Decision (RED), coupled with the costs to satisfy the recently issued Endocrine Disrupter Screening Program (EDSP) testing orders are not justified by the market opportunity in the vector control business segment or other uses for Start Printed Page 52332resmethrin. In addition, registrants may not formulate their products, as the technical producer of resmethrin has requested a voluntary cancellation of their technical registration. Resmethrin users or anyone else that desires the retention of a resmethrin registration should contact the applicable registrants during the comment period. The data required to support a resmethrin product are identified in Table 1. In addition, the generic data requirements for resmethrin, which are listed in the Federal Register of May 19, 2010 (75 FR 28019) (FRL-8825-7), would also be required.

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.
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 resmethrin registrants have not requested that EPA waive the 180-day comment period. Accordingly, EPA will provide a 180-day comment period on the proposed requests.
V. Procedures for Withdrawal of Requests
Registrants who choose to withdraw a request for product cancellation should submit the withdrawal in writing to the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. 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.Start Printed Page 52340
VI. Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks
Existing stocks are those stocks of registered pesticide products that are currently in the United States and that were packaged, labeled, and released for shipment prior to the effective date of the action. If the request(s) for voluntary cancellation are granted, the Agency intends to publish the cancellation order in the Federal Register.
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 products listed in Table 2.
After December 31, 2012, registrants are prohibited from formulating, selling, or distributing existing stocks of products containing resmethrin for all uses, including the use of resmethrin as a wide area mosquito abatement insecticide.
Persons other than the registrant may sell, distribute, or use existing stocks of canceled products until supplies are exhausted, provided that such sale, distribution, or use is consistent with the terms of the previously approved labeling on, or that accompanied, the canceled products.Start List of Subjects
