Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
This notice announces EPA's order for the amendment to terminate and/or delete certain uses, voluntarily requested by the registrant and accepted by the Agency, of the products, listed in Table 1, pursuant to section 6(f)(1) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), as amended. This order follows a September 10, 2010 Federal Register Notice of Receipt of Request from the registrant listed in Table 2 to voluntarily amend their tetrahydro-3, 5-dimethyl-2 H-1, 3, 4-thiadiazine-2-thione (Dazomet) product registrations to terminate or delete one or more uses. The request would terminate the uses listed in Table 1 of Unit II. The request would delete the uses listed in Table 2 of Unit II. The request would not terminate the last tetrahydro-3, 5-dimethyl-2 H-1, 3, 4-thiadiazine-2-thione products registered for use in the United States and would result in retention of some registered uses for those products. In the September 10, 2010 notice, EPA indicated that it would issue an order implementing the amendments to terminate uses, unless the Agency received substantive comments within the 30-day comment period that would merit its further review of these requests, or unless the registrant withdrew their request within this period. The Agency did not receive any comments on the notice. Further, the registrant did not withdraw their request. Accordingly, EPA hereby issues in this notice a cancellation order granting the requested amendment to terminate uses. Any distribution, sale, or use of the products subject to this cancellation order is permitted only in accordance with the terms of this order, including any existing stocks provisions.
The order is effective December 20, 2010.Start Further Info
