III. Summary of Public Comments Received and Agency Response to Comments

During the public comment period provided, EPA received one comment in response to the January 19, 2011 Federal Register notice announcing the Agency's receipt of the requests for voluntary cancellations of products listed in Table 1 of Unit II regarding the export of cancelled pesticide products. This comment was not relevant to the request to voluntarily cancel certain pesticide registrations. For more information regarding EPA's export policies for cancelled pesticides, see FIFRA section 17.

IV. Cancellation Order

Pursuant to FIFRA section 6(f), EPA hereby approves the requested cancellations of the registrations identified in Table 1 of Unit II. Accordingly, the Agency hereby orders that the product registrations identified in Table 1 of Unit II are cancelled. The effective date of the cancellations that are the subject of this notice is August 31, 2011. Any distribution, sale, or use of existing stocks of the 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 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 cancelled 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 notice of receipt for this action was published for comment in the Federal Register issue of January 19, 2011 (76 FR 3138) (FRL-8857-1). The comment period closed on July 14, 2011.

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.

The registrants may continue to sell and distribute existing stocks of products listed in Table 1 of Unit II. until August 30, 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 cancelled products.

Certain requests to voluntarily cancel pesticide products announced in the January 19, 2011 6(f) Notice, (FRL-8857-1) were omitted from this cancellation order because those products were cancelled in a previously published document. The effective date of cancellation of those products was July 15, 2011 as stated in the cancellation order titled: “Cancellation of Pesticides for Non-Payment of Year 2011 Registration Maintenance Fees.” The cancellation order was published July 27, 2011 (76 FR 44907) (FRL-8879-8) and can be found in docket EPA-HQ-OPP-2011-0558. See EPA docket EPA-HQ-OPP-2011-0558; FRL-8879-8 for a list of those registration numbers.
