Procedures for Withdrawal of Request and Considerations for Reregistration of Diazinon BILLING CODE 6560–507–S ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY [EPA–HQ–OPP–2006–0687; FRL–8105–2] Registrants who choose to withdraw a request for cancellation must submit such withdrawal in writing to the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT, postmarked before January 5, 2007. This written withdrawal of the request for cancellation will apply only to the applicable FIFRA section 6(f)(1) request listed in this notice. If the products have been subject to a previous cancellation action, the effective date of cancellation and all other provisions of any earlier cancellation action are controlling. VI. Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks PWALKER on PRODPC60 with NOTICES Dated: November 21, 2006. Debra Edwards, Director, Special Review and Reregistration Division, Office of Pesticide Programs. [FR Doc. E6–20429 Filed 12–05–06; 8:45 am] 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. If the request for voluntary use termination is granted as discussed above, the Agency intends to issue a cancellation order that will allow persons other than the registrant to continue to sell and/or use existing stocks of cancelled products until such stocks are exhausted, provided that such use is consistent with the terms of the previously approved labeling on, or that accompanied, the cancelled product. The order will specifically prohibit any use of existing stocks that is not consistent with such previously approved labeling. If, as the Agency currently intends, the final cancellation order contains the existing stocks provision just described, the order will be sent only to the affected registrants of the cancelled products. If the Agency determines that the final cancellation order should contain existing stocks provisions different than the ones just described, the Agency will publish the cancellation order in the Federal Register.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OMB Control Number: 3060–0307. Title: Amendment of Part 90 of the Commission’s Rules to Facilitate Development of SMR Systems in the 800 MHz Frequency Band. Form No.: N/A. Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection. PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 70765 Respondents: Business or other forprofit, not-for-profit institutions, and state, local or tribal government. Number of Respondents: 1,042 respondents; 1,042 responses. Estimated Time Per Response: 2–4.5 hours. Frequency of Response: On occasion reporting requirement and third party disclosure requirement.

Needs and Uses: The Commission will submit this information collection to OMB as a revision after this 60 day comment period to obtain the full threeyear clearance from them.

The Commission modified section 90.693 (47 CFR 90.693) of its rules to eliminate the necessity of incumbent 800 MHz Specialized Mobile Radio (SMR) licensees filing notifications of minor modifications in certain circumstances. Specifically, notification of minor modifications is no longer required where a license locates its facilities closer than the minimum required distance separation but nonetheless falls within the parameters of the Short Spacing Separation Table under Commission rule section 47 CFR 90.621. The information will be used by the Commission for the following purposes: (a) To update the Commission’s licensing data base and thereby facilitate the successful coexistence of Economic Areas (EA) licensees and incumbents in the 800 MHz SMR band; and (b) to determine whether an applicant is eligible for special provisions for small businesses provided for applicants in the 800 MHz service.
