    Pursuant to FIFRA section 6(f), EPA hereby approves the requested 
amendment to terminate uses of 1-Methyl-3,5,7-Triaza-1-
Azoniatricyclodecane Chloride (Busan 1024) registration identified in 
Table 1 of Unit II. Accordingly, the Agency orders that the product 
registration identified in Table 1 of Unit II. is hereby amended to 
terminate the affected uses. Any distribution, sale, or use of existing 
stocks of the product 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

product under the previously approved labeling for a period of 12

    EPA's existing stocks policy (56 FR 29362) provides that: ``If a 
registrant requests to voluntarily cancel a registration where the 
Agency has identified no particular risk concerns, the registrant has 
complied with all applicable conditions of reregistration, conditional

a Registration Standard, Label Improvement Program, or reregistration 
decision, the Agency will generally permit a registrant to sell or 
distribute existing stocks for 1 year after the cancellation request 
was received. Persons other than registrants will generally be allowed 
to sell, distribute, or use existing stocks until such stocks are 
exhausted.''

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. The effective date of this cancellation is January 
9, 2013. The cancellation order that is the subject of this notice
