This cancellation order follows a notice of receipt of voluntary cancellation requests received from the registrants that issued in the Federal Register of June 11, 2014 (79 FR 33550) (FRL-9911-36)), and a correction notice issued in the Federal Register of July 16, 2014 (79 FR 41551) (FRL-9913-20) that removed two products that were inadvertently listed in the June 11, 2014 document. In the June 2014 document, 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 registrants withdrew their requests.
IV. Summary of Public Comments Received and Agency Response to Comments
The comment period closed on December 8, 2014. EPA received one comment. The comment did not contain information about any specific product cancellation request. For this reason, the Agency does not believe that the comment submitted during the comment period merits further review or a denial of the request for voluntary cancellation.
Further, the registrants did not withdraw their requests.
V. Cancellation Order
Pursuant to FIFRA section 6(f) (7 U.S.C. 136d(f)), EPA hereby approves the requested cancellations of the registrations identified in Table 1 of Unit III. Accordingly, the Agency hereby orders that the product registrations identified in Table 1 of Unit III. are canceled. The effective date of the cancellations that are the subject of this order is April 16, 2015. Any distribution, sale, or use of existing stocks of the products identified in Table 1 of Unit III. 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.
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.
The registrants may continue to sell and distribute existing stocks of products listed in Table 1 of Unit III. until April 18, 2016, 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 III. except for export in accordance with FIFRA section 17 (7 U.S.C. 136o), or proper disposal. Persons other than the registrants may sell, distribute, or use existing stocks of products listed in Table 1 of Unit III. 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.
