Product Cancellation Order for Certain Pesticide Registrations
AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
ACTION: Notice.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
SUMMARY: This notice announces EPA's order for the cancellations,
voluntarily requested by the registrants and accepted by the Agency, of
the products listed in Table 1 of Unit II, pursuant to the Federal
Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). This cancellation
order follows a May 29, 2019 Federal Register Notice of Receipt of
Requests from the registrants listed in Table 2 of Unit II to
voluntarily cancel these product registrations. In the May 29, 2019
notice, 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. The Agency
received comments on the notice but none merited its further review of
the requests. Further, the registrants did not withdraw their requests.
Accordingly, EPA hereby issues in this notice a cancellation order
granting the requested cancellations. 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.
DATES: The cancellations are applicable August 14, 2019.

III. Summary of Public Comments Received and Agency Response to
Comments
    The Agency received three public anonymous comments on the notice.
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
IV. 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 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 14, 2019. 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 (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 May
29, 2019 (84 FR 24779) (FRL-9994-18). The comment period closed on June
28, 2019.
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.
[[Page 40407]]
    The registrants may continue to sell and distribute existing stocks
of products listed in Table 1 of Unit II until August 14, 2019, 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, 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 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.
    Authority:  7 U.S.C. 136 et seq.
    Dated: July 29, 2019.
