Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).




This notice announces EPA's order for the cancellations, voluntarily requested by the registrant and accepted by the Agency, of products containing chlorpyrifos, pursuant to the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). This cancellation order follows a March 9, 2005 Federal Register Notice of Receipt of Request from the registrant listed in Table 2 of Unit II. to voluntarily cancel these product registrations. These are not the last products containing this pesticide registered for use in the United States. In the March 9, 2005 notice, EPA indicated that it would issue an order implementing the cancellations, unless the Agency received substantive comments within the 180-day comment period that would merit its further review of these requests, or unless the registrant withdrew their request. The Agency did not receive any comments on the notice. Further, the registrant did not withdraw their request. 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 July 3, 2013.

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 March 9, 2005 Federal Register notice announcing the Agency's receipt of the request for voluntary cancellations of products listed in Table 1 of Unit II.

IV. Cancellation Order

Pursuant to FIFRA section 6(f), EPA hereby approves the requested cancellations of chlorpyrifos 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 canceled. The effective date of the cancellations that are subject of this notice is July 3, 2013. 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 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 on March 9, 2005 (70 FR 11634) (FRL-7701-3). The comment period closed on September 6, 2005.

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 Federal Register Notice of March 9, 2005, proposed to allow without limitation the distribution or sale of existing stocks by non-registrants, as well as the use of existing stocks. However, over 8 years have now passed since that notice was published and it is EPA's understanding that the registrant has not produced the products since that time. As a result, EPA believes there is likely little if any product remaining in the channels of Start Printed Page 40140trade and believes what little there may be of these old products should no longer be put to use. Accordingly, the cancellation order issued in this notice includes the following existing stocks provisions: The cancellation order issued in this notice includes the following existing stocks provisions.

The distribution, sale or use of existing stocks will not be lawful under FIFRA with the date of this cancellation order except for the purpose of returns and relabeling, shipping such stocks for export consistent with the requirements of section 17 of FIFRA, or for proper disposal.
