III. Cancellation Order

Pursuant to FIFRA section 3, EPA hereby announces the expiration of chloroneb registrations identified in Table 1 of Unit II. This cancellation order announces the October 31, 2010, expiration of certain time-limited registrations. These registrations expire on October 31, 2010, because the technical registrant, Kincaid, Inc., failed to meet the terms and conditions of registration as requested in correspondence dated September 26, 2005, and subsequently granted by the Agency. The Agency considers the expiration of a time-limited registration to be a cancellation under section 3 of FIFRA, for purposes of section 6(a)(1) of FIFRA. Any distribution, sale, or use of existing stocks of the canceled products identified in Table 1 of Unit II. in a manner inconsistent with any of the Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks set forth in Unit IV., will be considered a violation of FIFRA.

IV. Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks

Existing stocks are those stocks of registered pesticide products that are currently in the United States and were packaged, labeled, and released for shipment prior to the effective date of the cancellation action. The cancellation order issued in this notice includes the following existing stock provisions.

The registrant may continue to sell or distribute existing stocks of chloroneb products identified in Table 1 of Unit II. until October 31, 2011, which is 1 year after the expiration of the time-limited registrations. Thereafter, the registrant is prohibited from selling or distributing products listed in Table 1 of Unit II., except for export in accordance with FIFRA section 17 or for proper disposal.

Persons other than the registrant may continue to sell, distribute, or use existing stocks of canceled products until supplies are exhausted, provided that the sale, distribution, or use is consistent with the terms of the previously approved labeling on, or that accompanied, the canceled products.
