II. What does this rescission do?

This Notice rescinds the cancellation of BPC's product, EPA registration number 010707-00055, which appeared in FR Doc. 2011-22135, published in the Federal Register of August 31, 2011 (76 FR 54230) (FRL-8885-6). The Cancellation Order was issued following a Notice announcing the request to voluntarily cancel product 010707-00055 published in the Federal Register of January 19, 2011 (76 FR 31380(FRL-8857-1) . However, the request to voluntarily cancel this pesticide product had been rescinded on December 16, 2010 in a letter from BPC, and this product should not have been cancelled.

Additionally, this Notice rescinds the cancellations of BioSafe Systems' products, EPA Reg. Nos. 070299-00001, 070299-00002, 070299-00003 and Oregon's SLN, OR060026, which appeared in FR Doc. 2011-33252, published in the Federal Register of December 28, 2011 (76 FR 81496) (FRL-9326-6). The Cancellation Order was issued following a Notice announcing the request to voluntarily cancel these products published in the Federal Register of April 27, 2011 (76 FR 23588)(FRL-8870-6). However, BioSafe Systems, LLC never requested the cancellation of its products, and therefore EPA did not have the authority to cancel them. Additionally, the State of Oregon retracted their request to voluntarily cancel OR060026 on December 3, 2010 and this product should not have been cancelled.

Therefore, based on the discussion above, with this notice, cancellation of BPC's product, EPA Reg. No 010707-00055, X-cide 305, contained in the cancellation order published in the Federal Register on August 31, 2011, is hereby rescinded.

Cancellation of the following BioSafe Systems' products contained in the cancellation order published in the Federal Register on December 28, 2011 is hereby rescinded:

070299-00001, Zerotol Algaecide Fungicide, 070299-00002, Oxidate Broad Spectrum Bactericide/fungicide, and 070299-00003, Terracite.

In addition, the cancellation of Oregon's SLN, OR060026, also contained in the cancellation order published in the Federal Register on December 28, 2011 is rescinded.

In addition to the rescission of these cancellations, the existing stocks provisions contained in the August 31, 2011 cancellation order and the December 28, 2011 cancellation order are rescinded as those provisions apply to the products and registrations contained in this notice.
