ACTION:

Notice.

SUMMARY:

This notice rescinds a previously issued Cancellation Order, printed in the Federal Register on December 28, 2011, to the extent it is applicable to one methyl parathion product. The product in question, EPA Registration Number 070506-00193, was previously cancelled under a separate Cancellation Order published in the Federal Register on July 27, 2010. The July 27, 2010 order correctly identifies the effective date of cancellation for the affected product registration as well as the correct dates associated with the disposition of existing stocks. This rescission only applies to the methyl parathion registration. All other product registrations for all other chemicals that were included in the December 28, 2011 cancellation order remain in effect and are not otherwise affected by this action.

DATES:

The cancellation of the methyl parathion product at issue is effective December 31, 2012 as provided by the July 27, 2010 Cancellation Order.

II. What action is the agency taking?

EPA is rescinding a recently issued Cancellation Order, a December 28, 2011 Federal Register Notice (76 FR 81496) to the extent it is applicable to one methyl parathion product. On December 28, 2011 EPA issued a batch order cancelling products for failure to pay maintenance fees. The list of products in Table 2 inadvertently contained the methyl parathion product, EPA Registration Number 070506-00193, Penncap-M Microencapsulated Insecticide. However, this methyl parathion product was previously cancelled under a separate Cancellation Order printed in the Federal Register of July 27, 2010 (75 FR 43981), in relation to a Memorandum of Agreement where all methyl parathion products were voluntarily cancelled by the registrants. The July 27, 2010 order correctly identifies the effective date of cancellation for the affected product registration as well as the correct dates associated with the disposition of existing stocks. The cancellation order for the methyl parathion product, issued in the Federal Register on December 28, 2011 is rescinded. The rescission only applies to the methyl parathion registration, EPA Registration Number 070506-00193. The December 28, 2011 cancellation order remains in full force and effect with respect to all other product registrations and chemicals contained in those cancellation orders.
