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 June 4, 2014 Federal Register notice announcing the Agency's receipt of the requests 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 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 August 13, 2014. 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 of June 4, 2014 (79 FR 32288) (FRL-9910-97). The comment period closed on July 7, 2014.

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.

A. For Products 000464-00664, 011603-00048, and 053883-00241

The registrants have indicated to the Agency via written response that there are no existing stocks of technical or end use products. Therefore, no existing stocks date is necessary. Registrants are prohibited from selling or distributing the pesticides identified in Table 1 of Unit II., except for export consistent with FIFRA section 17 or for 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.

B. For Products 007969-00057, 007969-00085, and 007969-00224

The registrant has indicated to the Agency via letter that all registrations for the active ingredient vinclozolin will be phased out. Because the Agency has identified no significant potential risk concerns associated with these pesticide products, EPA is allowing registrants to sell and distribute existing stocks of these products until December 31, 2016. Thereafter, registrants, and persons other than registrants, are prohibited from selling or distributing existing stocks of products containing vinclozolin identified in Table 1 of Unit II., except for export consistent with FIFRA section 17 or for proper disposal. Existing stocks of products containing vinclozolin already in the hands of users can be used legally until such stocks are exhausted, provided that the use is consistent with the terms of the previously approved labeling on, or that accompanied, the cancelled products.

C. For All Other Products Identified in Table 1 of Unit II.

Registrants may continue to sell and distribute existing stocks of products listed in Table 1 of Unit II. until August 13, 2015, which is 1 year after the publication of the Cancellation Order in the Federal Register. Thereafter, registrants are prohibited from selling or distributing the pesticides listed in Table 1 of Unit II., except for export consistent with FIFRA section 17 or for proper disposal. Persons other than registrants may sell, distribute, or use existing stocks of products listed in Table 1 of Unit II. until such 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.
