III. 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. 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, the Administrator may approve such a request.

IV. Procedures for Withdrawal of Request

    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 February 15, 2008. 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 product(s) have been subject to a previous cancellation action, the 
effective date of cancellation and all other provisions of any earlier 
cancellation action are controlling. The withdrawal request must also 
include a commitment to pay any reregistration fees due, and to fulfill 
any applicable unsatisfied data requirements.

V. Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks

    The effective date of cancellation will be the date of the 
cancellation order. The orders effecting these requested cancellations 
will generally permit a registrant to sell or distribute existing 
stocks for 1 year after the date the cancellation request was received. 
This policy is in accordance with the Agency's statement of policy as 
prescribed in the Federal Register of June 26, 1991 (56 FR 29362) (FRL-
3846-4). Exceptions to this general rule will be made if a product 
poses a risk concern, or is in noncompliance with reregistration 
requirements, or is subject to a data call-in. In all cases, product-
specific disposition dates will be given in the cancellation orders.
    Existing stocks are those stocks of registered pesticide products 
which are currently in the United States and which have been packaged, 
labeled, and released for shipment prior to the effective date of the 
cancellation action. Unless the provisions of an earlier order apply, 
existing stocks already in the hands of dealers or users can be 
distributed, sold, or used legally until they are exhausted, provided 
that such further sale and use comply with the EPA-approved label and 
labeling of the affected product. Exception to these general rules will 
be made in specific cases when more stringent restrictions on sale, 
distribution, or use of the products or their ingredients have already 
been imposed, as in a special review action, or where the Agency has 
identified significant potential risk concerns associated with a 
particular chemical.
