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 Table 1 and Table 2 of Unit II., pursuant to the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). This cancellation order follows a February 20, 2013 Federal Register Notice of Receipt of Requests from the registrants listed in Table 3 of Unit II. to voluntarily cancel these product registrations. In the February 20, 2013 notice, 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. The Agency did not receive any comments on the notice. Further, the registrants did not withdraw 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.

III. Summary of Public Comments Received and Agency Response to Comments
During the public comment period provided, EPA received no comments in response to the February 20, 2013 Federal Register notice announcing the Agency's receipt of the requests for voluntary cancellations of products listed in Table 1 and Table 2 of Unit II.
IV. Cancellation Order
Pursuant to FIFRA section 6(f), EPA hereby approves the requested cancellations of the registrations identified in Table 1 and Table 2 of Unit II. Accordingly, the Agency hereby orders that the product registrations identified in Table 1 and Table 2 of Unit II. are canceled. The effective date of the cancellation of the products listed in Table 1 of this notice is May 1, 2013. The effective date of cancellation of the products listed in Table 2 is December 31, 2014. Any distribution, sale, or use of existing stocks of the products identified in Table 1 and Table 2 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 notice of receipt for this action was published for comment in the Federal Register issue of February 20, 2013 (78 FR 11881) (FRL-9378-9). The comment period closed on March 22, 2013.
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.
1. For Products 007173-00283 and 007173-00285 identified in Table 1: Because the Agency has identified significant potential risk concerns associated with these pesticide products, EPA prohibits the sale or distribution of existing stocks by the registrant, except for export consistent with FIFRA section 17 or for proper disposal. Persons other than the registrant will be allowed to sell or distribute existing stocks of products, until such stocks are exhausted. Users will be allowed to use existing stocks regardless of the date of purchase until such stocks are exhausted, provided that such use is consistent with the terms of the previously approved labeling on, or that accompanied, the canceled product.
2. For all other products identified in Table 1: The registrants may continue to sell and distribute existing stocks of products listed in Table 1 of Unit II. until May 1, 2014, 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.
3. For all products listed in Table 2: After December 31, 2014, registrants are prohibited from selling or distributing existing stocks of products containing ODM. After December 31, 2016, persons other than registrants are prohibited from selling or distributing existing stocks of products containing ODM. After December 31, 2016, existing stocks of products containing ODM already in the possession of end 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.
