BILLING CODE 6560–50–P ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY [EPA–HQ–OPP–2007–0837;FRL–8377–3] Malathion; Order Amending Registration to Terminate Certain Uses Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). ACTION: Notice. sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES AGENCY: SUMMARY: EPA is granting a registrant’s voluntary request for amendments to terminate certain uses of products containing the pesticide malathion, pursuant to section 6(f)(1) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). This order follows a March 18, 1991 Federal Register Notice of Receipt of Requests to amend the registration of Fyfanon Technical, EPA Reg. No. 4787–5, to terminate certain uses. The requested amendments would not terminate all uses of malathion products registered for use in the United States. In the March 18, 1991 notice, EPA indicated that it intended to approve the requested amendments to terminate uses. Today’s order does not terminate all of the uses identified in the March 18, 1991 notice, because Cheminova A/S and the Interregional Research Project No. 4 (IR–4) adequately supported certain uses. Accordingly, EPA hereby grants, in part, the requested registration amendments and orders the termination of the uses identified in Unit II. Any distribution, sale, or use of Fyfanon Technical, EPA Reg. No. 4787–5, is permitted only in accordance with the terms of this order, including any existing stocks provisions. DATES: The uses of Fyfanon Technical, EPA Reg. No. 4787–5, described in Unit II of this cancellation order are cancelled effective August 27, 2008.

What Action is the Agency Taking? EPA is ordering the cancellation of certain uses of Fyfanon Technical, EPA Reg. No. 4787–5, pursuant to the registrant’s voluntary request for cancellation.

III. Summary of Public Comments Received and Agency Response to Comments On March 18, 1991, EPA published in the Federal Register a notice of receipt of voluntary requests for termination of uses from all registrants of technical malathion, specifically American Cyanamid Company and Cheminova A/ S (56 FR 11420); (FRL–3874–4). American Cyanamid Company subsequently cancelled all uses of its malathion products, and is therefore not addressed in this order. Following the March 18, 1991 notice, Cheminova provided data to support a number of the food uses that it had previously asked to terminate. These uses are wild rice, barley, oat, rye, kumquat, lemon, lime, tangerine, endive, squash, gooseberries, currant, eggplant, garlic, shallot, lespedeza hay, vetch hay, and leeks. Additionally, stored commodity treatments for barley and corn received subsequent support. Cheminova has either submitted, or has committed to submit, data sufficient to support the reregistration of these uses. The Interregional Research Project No. 4 (IR-4) also submitted data sufficient to support reregistration of the use of malathion on cauliflower, kale, dandelion, parsley, boysenberry, dewberry, loganberry, kohlrabi, spinach, pumpkins, melons, watercress, walnuts, pineapple, papaya, passion fruit, peaches, apricots, nectarines, E:\FR\FM\27AUN1.SGM 27AUN1
