ACTION:

Notice.

SUMMARY:

This notice announces the availability of EPA's interim registration review decisions for the pesticides listed in Unit II. of this notice. In addition, this notice announces the closure of the registration review case for Disodium Cyanodithioimidocarbonate (DCDIC) (case 3065 and Docket ID Number: EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-0723) and Decyl-Isononyl Dimethyl Ammonium Chloride (DIDAC) (case 5013 and Docket ID Number: EPA-HQ-OPP-2010-0005) because all of the registrations in the U.S. have been canceled. Registration review is EPA's periodic review of pesticide registrations to ensure that each pesticide continues to satisfy the statutory standard for registration, that is, that the pesticide can perform its intended function without causing unreasonable adverse effects on human health or the environment. Through this program, EPA is ensuring that each pesticide's registration is based on current scientific and other knowledge, including its effects on human health and the environment.
