AGENCY: ACTION: Notice. SUMMARY: This notice announces amendments to terminate certain uses of products containing the pesticide DCPA, pursuant to section 6(f)(1) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), as amended. This notice follows a February 16, 2005 Federal Register Notice of Receipt of Request from the DCPA registrant to voluntarily amend to terminate certain uses of their DCPA product registrations. These are not the last DCPA products registered for use in the United States. In the February 16 Notice, EPA indicated that it would issue an order implementing the amendments to terminate the subject uses, unless the Agency received substantive comments within the 30– day comment period that would merit its further review of the request. The Agency received three substantive comments on the Notice, two of which requested that several use sites proposed for termination be retained. EPA hereby issues in this notice an order to amend the subject registrations to terminate a subset of the uses initially requested for termination by the registrant. Any distribution, sale, or use of the DCPA products subject to this order is permitted only in accordance with the terms of this order, including any existing stocks provisions. The use terminations are effective on July 31, 2005.
