Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
This notice announces EPA's order for the cancellations, voluntarily requested by the registrants and accepted by the Agency, of the products listed in Tables 1, 2, and 3 of Unit II., pursuant to section 6(f)(1) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), as amended. This cancellation order follows the November 10, 2010 and November 17, 2010 Federal Register Notices of Receipt of Requests from the registrants listed in Table 4 of Unit II. to voluntarily cancel these product registrations. In these notices, EPA indicated that it would issue an order implementing the cancellations, unless the Agency received substantive comments within the 30-day comment period that would merit its further review of these requests, or unless the registrants withdrew their requests.

Accordingly, EPA hereby issues in this notice a cancellation order granting the requested cancellations. 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 cancellations are effective as noted in Unit IV. of this cancellation order.Start Further Info

III. Summary of Public Comments Received and Agency Response to Comments
Comments were received from the American Mosquito Control Association and the IR-4 Project on temephos. Both organizations emphasized the benefits of temephos as it is used in public health for mosquito control and requested that EPA extend the comment period for these product cancellations. However, the Agency recognizes the role of temephos in mosquito control and has agreed to a 4-year phase-out of the product registrations to Start Printed Page 10591accommodate this need and allow registrants time to develop replacement products. The current temephos products would not be cancelled until December 30, 2015. For these reasons, the Agency does not believe that the comment period should be extended.
IV. Cancellation Order
Pursuant to FIFRA section 6(f), EPA hereby approves the requested cancellations of the registrations identified in Tables 1, 2, and 3 of Unit II. Accordingly, the Agency hereby orders that the product registrations identified in Tables 1, 2, and 3 of Unit II. are cancelled. The effective date of the cancellation of the products listed in Tables 1 and 3 of this notice is February 25, 2011. The effective date of the cancellation of the products listed in Table 2 is December 31, 2015. Any distribution, sale, or use of existing stocks of the products identified in Tables 1, 2, and 3 of Unit II. in a manner inconsistent with any of the provisions for disposition of existing stocks set forth in Unit VI. will be a violation of FIFRA.
V. 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. Thereafter, following the public comment period, the EPA Administrator may approve such a request. The notices of receipt for this action were published for comment in the Federal Register issues of November 10, 2010 (75 FR 69073) (FRL-8851-5) and November 17, 2010 (75 FR 70256) (FRL-8850-1). The comment periods closed on December 10, 2010 and December 17, 2010 respectively.
VI. Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks
Existing stocks are those stocks of registered pesticide products which are currently in the United States and which were packaged, labeled, and released for shipment prior to the effective date of the cancellation action. The existing stocks provisions for the products subject to this order are as follows.
A. For All Products Listed in Table 1 of Unit II
The registrants may continue to sell and distribute existing stocks of products listed in Table 1 of Unit II. until February 25, 2012, which is 1 year after the publication of the Cancellation Order in the Federal Register. Thereafter, the registrants are prohibited from selling or distributing products listed in Table 1, except for export in accordance with FIFRA section 17, or proper disposal. Persons other than the registrants may sell, distribute, or use existing stocks of products listed in Table 1 of Unit II. until existing 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 2 of 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.
C. For All Products Listed in Table 3 of 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 effective 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
