II. What action is the Agency taking?

In the November 18, 2016 notice, EPA indicated that it would issue an order implementing the cancellations and amendments to terminate uses, 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 one comment on this notice from a registrant to withdraw one cancellation request for registration 100-1052, because it was inadvertently sent to the agency and it is not listed in this notice and will not be cancelled. Also two comments were received for the following registration numbers that were listed for product cancellation in the November 18, 2016 notice in error and are not listed in this notice, the following product registrations are not being cancelled: 2792-45, 61842-20, 61842-21, 61842-22, 61842-23, 61842-24 and 61842-32. Also, a comment was received for registration number 66222-32 that was listed in error with the incorrect product name and active ingredient, and it is not listed in this notice and will not be cancelled. Accordingly, EPA hereby issues in this notice a cancellation order granting the requested cancellations and amendments to terminate uses. 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.

This notice announces the cancellations and amendments to terminate uses, as requested by registrants, of products registered under FIFRA section 3 (7 U.S.C. 136a). These registrations are listed in sequence by registration number in Tables 1 and 2 of this unit.

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

During the public comment period provided, EPA received four comments in response to the November 18, 2016 Federal Register notice announcing the Agency's receipt of the requests for voluntary cancellations and amendments to terminate uses of products listed in Tables 1 and 2 of Unit II. One request was from Syngenta Crop Protection, LLC requesting that EPA Reg. No. 100-1052 be retained because the voluntary cancellation request was sent to the agency in error. A second comment was received from Decco US Post-Harvest, Inc. requesting that EPA Reg. No. 2792-45 be retained because the entry to cancel the product registration was listed in error, the registrant only voluntarily requested to amend the registration to terminate uses on pears which is accurately listed in Table 2 of Unit II. A third comment was received from Tessenderlo Kerley, Inc. requesting that EPA Reg. numbers 61842-20, 61842-21, 61842-22, 61842-23, 61842-24 and 61842-32 be retained because the entry to cancel the product registrations were listed in error. The fourth comment was received from Makhteshim Agan of North America, Inc. requesting that EPA Reg. No. 66222-32 be retained because the product registration name and active ingredient were listed incorrectly.

IV. Cancellation Order

Pursuant to FIFRA section 6(f) (7 U.S.C. 136d(f)(1)), EPA hereby approves the requested cancellations and amendments to terminate uses of the registrations identified in Tables 1 and 2 of Unit II. Accordingly, the Agency hereby orders that the product registrations identified in Tables 1 and 2 of Unit II, are canceled and amended to terminate the affected uses. The effective date of the cancellations that are subject of this notice is March 23, 2017. Any distribution, sale, or use of existing stocks of the products identified in Tables 1 and 2 of Unit II, in a manner inconsistent with any of the provisions for disposition of existing Start Printed Page 14900stocks 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 (7 U.S.C. 136d(f)(1)) 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 November 18, 2016 (81 FR 81761) (FRL-9953-55). The comment period closed on December 19, 2016.

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 action. The existing stocks provision for the products subject to this order is as follows.

For voluntary cancellations, the registrants may continue to sell and distribute existing stocks of products listed in Table 1 until March 23, 2018, which is 1 year after 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 II, except for export in accordance with FIFRA section 17 (7 U.S.C. 136o) or for proper disposal.

Now that EPA has approved product labels reflecting the requested amendments to terminate uses, registrants are permitted to sell or distribute products listed in Table 2 of Unit II, under the previously approved labeling until September 24, 2018, a period of 18 months after publication of the cancellation order in this Federal Register, unless other restrictions have been imposed. Thereafter, registrants will be prohibited from selling or distributing the products whose labels include the terminated uses identified in Table 2 of Unit II, except for export consistent with FIFRA section 17 or for proper disposal.
