AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION:

Notice.

SUMMARY:

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 of Unit II., pursuant to the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). This cancellation order follows a June 12, 2013 Federal Register Notice of Receipt of Requests from the registrants listed in Table 2 of Unit II. to voluntarily cancel these product registrations. In the June 12, 2013 Federal Register 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 received two comments on the June 12, 2013 Federal Register notice but only one merited its further review of the requests. 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.

DATES:

The cancellations are effective September 20, 2013.

III. Summary of Public Comments Received and Agency Response to Comments

The Agency received two comments on the voluntary cancellation notice but only one merited its further review of the requests. The one comment the Agency received that merited further review of the requests was a comment regarding the request for voluntary cancellation of tralkoxydim registrations. The comment was submitted by Dow AgroSciences Canada Inc. (DASCI), and requested that, as a result of DASCI's interests in Canada, the EPA retain the U.S. tolerances that currently exist for tralkoxydim for import purposes. The comment submitted by DASCI does not impact the Agency's decision to grant the request for voluntary cancellation of the tralkoxydim registrations. EPA is not proposing any tolerance actions for tralkoxydim at this time. If any tolerance actions are necessary in the future, there will be an announcement in the Federal Register and there will be a public comment period on the proposed action. For these reasons, the Agency does not believe that the comments submitted during the comment period merit further review or Start Printed Page 57852a denial of the requests for voluntary cancellation.

IV. Cancellation Order

Pursuant to FIFRA section 6(f), EPA hereby approves the requested cancellations of the 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 the subject of this notice is September 20, 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 in the Federal Register issue of June 12, 2013 (78 FR 35268) (FRL-9388-5). The comment period closed on July 12, 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 000100-01104 and 000100-01130 identified in Table 1 of Unit II.:

Thereafter, registrants will be prohibited from selling or distributing the products 000100-0114 and 000100-01130 identified in Table 1 of Unit II., except for export in accordance with FIFRA section 17, or proper disposal.

The registrant may continue to sell and distribute the existing stocks of these products until November 1, 2014. Persons other than the registrant may sell, distribute, or use existing stocks of these products 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 cancelled products.

2. For all other products identified in Table 1 of Unit II.:

The registrants may continue to sell and distribute existing stocks of products listed in Table 1 of Unit II., until September 22, 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 of Unit II., 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.
