This notice announces EPA's order for the cancellations, voluntarily requested by the registrants, and accepted by the Agency, of the products listed in Tables 1 and 2 of Unit II., pursuant to the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). This cancellation order follows a May 29, 2013 Federal Register Notice of Receipt of Requests from the registrants listed in Table 3 of Unit II., to voluntarily cancel these product registrations.

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.

III. Summary of Public Comments Received and Agency Response to Comments
The Agency received one comment indicating that all pesticides should be disallowed because of their effect on the environment. This did not merit further review of the requests.
IV. Cancellation Order
Pursuant to FIFRA section 6(f), EPA hereby approves the requested cancellation of the registrations identified in Tables 1 and 2 of Unit II. Accordingly, the Agency orders that the product registrations identified in Tables 1 and 2 of Unit II., are canceled. The effective date of the cancellations that are the subject of this notice are as follows: The cancellation for the manufacturing products, listed in Table 1 of Unit II., will be effective September 30, 2015, no use of listed manufacturing products to formulate any end use products will be permitted after December 31, 2015, and the cancellation for the end use products listed in Table 2 of Unit II., will be effective December 31, 2016. Any distribution, sale, or use of existing stocks of the products identified in Tables 1 and 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 May 29, 2013 (78 FR 32248) (FRL-9386-4). The comment period closed on June 28, 2013.

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 manufacturing use products listed in Table 1 of Unit II., up to and including September 30, 2015, and end use products listed in Table 2 of Unit II., up to and including December 31, 2016.
