This cancellation order follows a notice of receipt of voluntary cancellation requests received from the registrants that issued in the Federal Register of March 12, 2015 (80 FR 12996) (FRL-9923-27). In the March 2015 document, 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.

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

The comment period closed on April 13, 2015. EPA received three comments. The comments agreed with the product cancellations. For this reason, the Agency does not believe that the comments submitted during the comment period merit further review or a denial of the requests 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 June 3, 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.

A. For Products (069361-00030, 073801-00003, and 089118-00001)

The registrants have indicated to the Agency via written response that there are no existing stocks because no production has ever occurred. Therefore, no existing stocks date is necessary. Registrants are prohibited from selling or distributing the existing stocks of products listed in Table 1 of Unit III., except for export consistent with FIFRA section 17 (7 U.S.C. 136o) or for proper disposal. In addition, because no production has ever occurred, persons other than the registrants are prohibited from selling, distributing, or using the existing stocks.

B. For the Product (010163-00174)

The registrant has indicated to the Agency via written response that they will not sell or distribute any existing stocks after December 31, 2014, and as of that date will no longer have any current stock. Therefore, no existing stocks date for the registrant is necessary. The registrant is prohibited from selling or distributing existing stocks of the product listed in Table 1 of Unit III., except for export consistent with FIFRA section 17 (7 U.S.C. 136o) or for proper disposal. Persons other than the registrant may sell, distribute, or use the existing stocks 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 product.

C. For Products (059639-00028, 059639-00086, and 059639-00089)

Since the notice in the Federal Register of March 12, 2015 (80 FR 12996) (FRL-9923-27), EPA received clarification from the registrant which indicates that the manufacture and distribution for these products ended about 6 to 7 years ago. Therefore, no existing stocks date is necessary for the registrant. The registrant is prohibited from selling or distributing the existing stocks of products listed in Table 1 of Unit III., except for export consistent with FIFRA section 17 (7 U.S.C. 136o) or for proper disposal. In addition, because 6 to 7 years has passed, the Agency believes that existing stocks have been exhausted and no existing stocks date is necessary for persons other than the registrant. Persons other than the registrant are prohibited from selling, distributing, or using the existing stocks.

D. For All Other Products Identified in Table 1 of Unit III

The registrants may continue to sell and distribute existing stocks of products listed in Table 1 of Unit III. until June 2, 2016, which is 1 year after the publication of this 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.
