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 registrants to voluntarily cancel certain pesticide registrations. 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 registrations have been canceled only if such sale, distribution, or use is consistent with the terms as described in the final order.
Comments must be received on or before December 10, 2010.

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 Start Printed Page 69074information (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. What action is the agency taking?
This notice announces receipt by the Agency of requests from registrants to cancel 117 pesticide products registered under FIFRA section 3 or 24(c). These registrations are listed in sequence by registration number (or company number and 24(c) number) in Tables 1a, 1b, and 1c of this unit.
Unless the Agency determines that there are substantive comments that warrant further review of the requests or the registrants withdraw their requests, EPA intends to issue an order in the Federal Register canceling all of the affected registrations. The requests to cancel products with EPA Reg. Nos. 66330-63 and 66330-69 would terminate the last Sodium tetrathiocarbonate products registered for use in the United States.
The cancellations of products listed in Table 1b will be effective December 31, 2015. The requests to cancel these products would terminate the last Temephos products registered for use in the United States.
The cancellations of products containing active ingredients other than Sodium tetrathiocarbonate and Temephos would not terminate the last products registered for use in the United States of those active ingredients.

III. 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. 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, FIFRA section 6(f)(1)(C) 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 EPA Administrator determines that continued use of the pesticide would pose an unreasonable adverse effect on the environment.
The registrants in Table 2 of Unit II. have requested that EPA waive the 180-day comment period. Accordingly, EPA will provide a 30-day comment period on the proposed requests.
IV. Procedures for Withdrawal of Request
Registrants who choose to withdraw a request for cancellation should submit such withdrawal in writing to the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. If the products have been subject to a previous cancellation action, the effective date of cancellation and all other provisions of any earlier cancellation action are controlling.
V. 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 cancellation action. If the requests for voluntary cancellations are granted, the Agency intends to publish the cancellation order in the Federal Register.
A. For All Products Listed in Table 1a in Unit II
Because the Agency has identified no significant potential risk concerns associated with these pesticide products, upon cancellation of the products identified in Table 1a of Unit II., EPA anticipates allowing registrants to sell and distribute existing stocks of these products for 1 year after publication of the Cancellation Order in the Federal Register. Thereafter, registrants will be prohibited from selling or distributing the pesticide products identified in Table 1a of Unit II., except for export consistent with FIFRA section 17 or for proper disposal. Persons other than registrants will generally be allowed to sell, distribute, or use existing stocks until such stocks 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.
B. For All Products Listed in Table 1b in Unit II
Because the Agency has identified no significant potential risk concerns associated with these pesticide products, EPA proposes to include the following provisions for the treatment of any existing stocks of products containing temephos identified or referenced in Table 1b in Unit II.:
After December 31, 2015, registrants are prohibited from selling or distributing existing stocks of products containing temephos labeled for all uses.
After December 31, 2016, persons other than registrants are prohibited from selling or distributing existing stocks of products containing temephos labeled for all uses.
After December 31, 2016, existing stocks of products containing temephos labeled for all uses, already in the hands of users can be used legally until they are exhausted, provided that such use complies with the EPA-approved label and labeling of the affected product.Start Printed Page 69078
C. For All Products Listed in Table 1c in Unit II
Because the Agency has identified no significant potential risk concerns associated with these pesticide products, EPA proposes to include the following provisions for the treatment of any existing stocks of products containing methyl bromide or metam-sodium identified or referenced in Table 1c in Unit II.:
All sale or distribution by the registrant of existing stocks is prohibited after publication of the cancellation order in the Federal Register, unless that sale or distribution is solely for the purpose of facilitating disposal or export of the product.
Existing stocks may be sold and distributed by persons other than the registrant for 120 days from the date of the cancellation order.
Existing stocks may be used until exhausted, provided that such use complies with the EPA-approved label and labeling of the product.Start List of Subjects
