HP2010 consists of 28 primary focus areas and 467 measurable health objectives designed to identify the most significant preventable threats to health and to establish public health priorities. The central theme of HP2010 focuses on the role of communities and community partnerships in promoting healthy living in the U.S. HP2010 is a powerful force in the effort to promote health and prevent disease in the U.S. The agenda reflects extensive consultation with over 350 national organizations, 250 state agencies, health experts, and the public. HHS is eager to document the utilization of HP2010, and to seek input from key users on how the next iteration of the initiative, Healthy People 2020, could be improved to encourage greater involvement. This study will identify examples of effective strategies and approaches to using HP2010, and, where possible, the short-term results of those efforts.

III. Summary of Public Comments Received and Agency Response to 
Comments

    During the public comment period provided, EPA received no comments 
in response to the December 19, 2007 Federal Register notice announcing 
the Agency's receipt of the request for voluntary cancellation of 
sulfluramid.

IV. Cancellation Order

    Pursuant to FIFRA section 6(f), EPA hereby approves the requested 
cancellation of sulfluramid registration identified in Table 1 of Unit 
II. Accordingly, the Agency orders that the sulfluramid product 
registration identified in Table 1 of Unit II. is hereby canceled. 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 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

[[Page 28469]]

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.
    This notice announces EPA's order to cancel the final sulfluramid 
MUP registration, which is identified in Table 1 of this notice. Since 
DuPont (the only seller) has no existing stocks, EPA is not allowing 
any further sale or distribution of the MUP. However, this request does 
not cancel the remaining end-use sulfluramid products (the remaining 
registered use is for termite control) currently registered in the U.S. 
End-use registrants may continue to reformulate any existing stocks of 
the MUP currently in their possession until December 31, 2012.
