Background on the Receipt of Requests To Cancel This notice announces receipt by EPA of a request from Arysta to cancel all of its iodomethane product registrations. Iodomethane is a pre-plant soil fumigant used to control pests in soil where fruits, vegetables, ornamental plants, and turf will be grown. In a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA), Arysta and EPA agreed to cancel and amend the pesticide product registrations identified in Tables 1 and 2 of Unit III. Specifically, the MOA contains Arysta’s irrevocable request that its end-use products, EPA Registration Numbers 66330–43, 66330– 57, 66330–58, 66330–59, and 66330–60, will be canceled effective December 31, 2012, and that its iodomethane technical product, EPA Registration Number 66330–44 will be canceled effective December 1, 2015. The MOA also adds a condition of registration to the technical product’s registration that as of January 1, 2013, Arysta will not sell or distribute this product unless its label bears the following statement: It is unlawful to use this product for any purpose in the United States, except for formulation of products intended for export consistent with the requirements of FIFRA section 17. (The request for amendment is conditioned on the issuance of a cancellation order including the requested effective dates and existing stocks provisions.) Granting the registrant’s cancellation request would terminate the last iodomethane products registered in the United States. III. What action is the agency taking? This notice announces receipt by EPA of the request to cancel the iodomethane product registrations described in Unit II. The affected products and the registrant making the requests are identified in Tables 1–3 of this unit. Unless the Agency receives substantive comments in response to this notice that warrant further review of this request, EPA intends to issue an order canceling the affected registrations on the requested effective dates.

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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:56 Nov 20, 2012 Jkt 229001 Company a notice of receipt of any such request in the Federal Register. Section 6(f)(1)(B) of FIFRA requires that before acting on a request for voluntary cancellation, EPA must provide a 30-day public comment period on the request for voluntary cancellation or use termination. In addition, FIFRA section 6(f)(1)(C) requires that EPA provide a 180-day comment period on a request for voluntary cancellation or termination of any minor agricultural use before granting the request, unless: 1. The registrants request a waiver of the comment period, or 2. The EPA Administrator determines that continued use of the pesticide would pose an unreasonable adverse effect on the environment. The iodomethane registrant has requested that EPA waive the 180-day comment period. Accordingly, EPA will provide a 30-day comment period on the proposed requests. V. Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks Existing stocks are those stocks of registered pesticide products that are currently in the United States and that PO 00000 Frm 00053 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Arysta LifeScience North America, LLC. were packaged, labeled, and released for shipment prior to the effective date of the action.

II. Background on the Receipt of Requests To Cancel

    This notice announces receipt by EPA of a request from Arysta to 
cancel all of its iodomethane product registrations. Iodomethane is a 
pre-plant soil fumigant used to control pests in soil where fruits, 
vegetables, ornamental plants, and turf will be grown. In a Memorandum 
of Agreement (MOA), Arysta and EPA agreed to cancel and amend the 
pesticide product registrations identified in Tables 1 and 2 of Unit 
III. Specifically, the MOA contains Arysta's irrevocable request that 
its end-use products, EPA Registration Numbers 66330-43, 66330-57, 
66330-58, 66330-59, and 66330-60, will be canceled effective December 
31, 2012, and that its iodomethane technical product, EPA Registration 
Number 66330-44 will be canceled effective December 1, 2015. The MOA 
also adds a condition of registration to the technical product's 
registration that as of January 1, 2013, Arysta will not sell or 
distribute this product unless its label bears the following statement:

    It is unlawful to use this product for any purpose in the United 
States, except for formulation of products intended for export 
consistent with the requirements of FIFRA section 17.

(The request for amendment is conditioned on the issuance of a 
cancellation order including the requested effective dates and existing 
stocks provisions.) Granting the registrant's cancellation request 
would terminate the last iodomethane products registered in the United 
States.

III. What action is the agency taking?

    This notice announces receipt by EPA of the request to cancel the 
iodomethane product registrations described in Unit II. The affected 
products and the registrant making the requests are identified in 
Tables 1-3 of this unit.
    Unless the Agency receives substantive comments in response to this 
notice that warrant further review of this request, EPA intends to 
issue an order canceling the affected registrations on the requested 
effective dates.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

IV. 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.
    Section 6(f)(1)(B) of FIFRA requires that before acting on a 
request for voluntary cancellation, EPA must provide a 30-day public 
comment period on the request for voluntary cancellation or use 
termination. In addition, FIFRA section 6(f)(1)(C) requires that EPA 
provide a 180-day comment period on a request for voluntary 
cancellation or termination of any minor agricultural use before 
granting the request, unless:
    1. The registrants request a waiver of the comment period, or
    2. The EPA Administrator determines that continued use of the 
pesticide would pose an unreasonable adverse effect on the environment.
    The iodomethane registrant has requested that EPA waive the 180-day 
comment period. Accordingly, EPA will provide a 30-day comment period 
on the proposed requests.

V. Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks

    Existing stocks are those stocks of registered pesticide products 
that are currently in the United States and that were packaged, 
labeled, and released for shipment prior to the effective date of the 
action. If the request for voluntary cancellation is granted, the 
Agency intends to publish the cancellation order in the Federal 
Register. EPA intends to include in any such final order the following 
provisions for the treatment of any existing stocks of the product(s) 
listed in Tables 1 and 2 of Unit III.
    In any final order granting Arysta's request for voluntary 
cancellation of its iodomethane technical/manufacturing-use product 
registration, as of the effective date of the cancellation order, all 
sale and distribution of existing stocks of Arysta's iodomethane 
technical/manufacturing-use product by Arysta shall be prohibited
