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 of Unit II., pursuant to the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). This cancellation order follows a November 20, 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 November 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. However, the Agency did receive notice via letter dated December 18, 2013 from the registrant Nufarm Americas Inc. to withdraw their voluntary cancellation request for products EPA Reg. Nos. 33688-2 (Nufarm S.A. Technical Butralin) and EPA Reg. No. 33688-4 (Tamex 3EC). Accordingly, EPA hereby issues in this notice a cancellation order granting the requested withdrawals and 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. In addition, for pertinent information relating to the pesticide registrations for ME030004 and ME980001 as published in the November 20, 2013 notice, see Unit II. of this notice.
The cancellations are effective March 13, 2014.

II. What action is the agency taking?
This notice announces the cancellation, as requested by registrants, of products registered under FIFRA section 3. These registrations are listed in sequence by registration number in Table 1 of this unit.
The Agency also received notice via letter dated December 18, 2013 from the registrant Nufarm Americas Inc. to withdraw their voluntary cancellation request for products EPA Reg. No. 33688-2 (Nufarm S.A. Technical Butralin) and EPA Reg. No. 33688-4 (Tamex 3EC). Thus, these registrations have been removed from this cancellation order notice. In addition, pesticide registration numbers ME030004 and ME980001 and its contents have been removed from the listing in Table 1. EPA inadvertently listed the pesticide product names Glypro and RH-5992 2F Experimental Insecticide for pesticide registration numbers ME030004 and ME980001, respectively, in the Federal Register of November 20, 2013 (78 FR 69666) (FRL 9902-40). Therefore, this action excludes pesticide registration numbers ME030004 and ME980001 from cancellation at this time. EPA will reissue pesticide product numbers ME030004 and ME980001 for voluntary cancellation in a future Federal Register notice.
