On July 14, 2010 the Agency issued a product cancellation order (75 FR 40825; FRL-8833-4) for all clofencet product registrations. Due to the cancellation of all registered clofencet products in the United States, the Agency closed the registration review case for clofencet, pursuant to 40 CFR 155.42(c). This notice announces the availability of EPA’s Notice of Registration Review Case Closure for clofencet, case 0715.
In addition to the registration review case closure document, the registration review docket for clofencet also includes other relevant documents related to the registration review of this case. The Notice of Receipt of a Request to Voluntarily Cancel Certain Pesticide Registrations was issued on April 28, 2010, and the public was invited to submit any comments or new information. During the 30-day comment period, no public comments were received which impacted the Agency’s decision to grant the cancellation request. Subsequently, on July 14, 2010, the Agency published the Cancellation Order for all clofencet product registrations in the Federal Register (75 FR 40825).
