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 Administrator may approve such a request. 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 cancellation order issued in this Notice includes the following existing stocks provisions. The registrants of affected CCA products requested that the voluntary PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 use terminations become effective December 31, 2004, with no provisions for existing stocks. Consequently, the Agency is not allowing for any existing stocks provisions for those affected products in the hands of the registrant on or after the effective date of the use terminations. Any sale, distribution, or use of those affected products on or after the effective date of this cancellation order is prohibited. This refers to CCA product labels that bear the C18 Marine Use, ‘‘members out of water and not subject to saltwater [or brackish water] splash and not in soil use,’’ and which do not bear labeling consistent with that set forth in Unit IV. above. Sale, distribution or use of the stocks in the channels of trade by persons other than the registrant may continue until depleted, provided any sale, distribution or use is in accordance with the existing label of that product.

    Furthermore, any distribution, sale, or use of existing stocks of 
the products identified in Table 2 of Unit II. in a manner inconsistent 
with any of the Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks set forth 
below in Unit VI. will be considered a violation of FIFRA.

V. What is the Agency's Authority for Taking this Action?

    Section 6(f)(1) of FIFRA 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 Administrator may approve such 
a request.

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 cancellation order issued in this Notice 
includes the following existing stocks provisions.
    The registrants of affected CCA products requested that the 
voluntary use terminations become effective December 31, 2004, with no 
provisions for existing stocks. Consequently, the Agency is not 
allowing for any existing stocks provisions for those affected products 
in the hands of the registrant on or after the effective date of the 
use terminations. Any sale, distribution, or use of those affected 
products on or after the effective date of this cancellation order is 
prohibited. This refers to CCA product labels that bear the C18 Marine 
Use, ``members out of water and not subject to saltwater [or brackish 
water] splash and not in soil use,'' and which do not bear labeling 
consistent with that set forth in Unit IV. above. Sale, distribution or 
use of the stocks in the channels of trade by persons other than the 
registrant may continue until depleted, provided any sale, distribution 
or use is in accordance with the existing label of that product.
