SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. General Information A. Does this action apply to me? This action is directed to the public in general, and may be of interest to a wide range of stakeholders including environmental, human health, and agricultural advocates; the chemical industry; pesticide users; and members of the public interested in the sale, distribution, or use of pesticides. B. What should I consider as I prepare my comments for EPA? 1. Submitting CBI. Do not submit this information to EPA through regulations.gov or email.

Make sure to submit your comments by the comment period deadline identified. II. What action is the agency taking? This notice announces receipt by the Agency of requests from registrants to cancel 29 pesticide products registered under FIFRA section 3 or 24(c). These registrations are listed in sequence by registration number (or company number and 24(c) number) in Tables 1a and 1b of this unit. This notice also announces receipt by EPA of requests from the registrant Syngenta Crop Protection, LLC (Syngenta) to cancel the last two remaining tralkoxydim product registrations. Tralkoxydim is a systemic, postemergence herbicide registered for agricultural use to selectively control certain annual grass weeds in wheat, barley, and triticale. Tolerances are currently established for tralkoxydim residues in or on the raw agricultural commodities barley and wheat (40 CFR 180.548). There are no residential uses currently registered for tralkoxydim. The registration review process for tralkoxydim began in September 2011, with the issuance of the Preliminary Work Plan for Registration Review in the docket EPA–HQ–OPP–2011–0706 for a 60-day comment period. The Tralkoxydim Final Work Plan for Registration Review was completed in February 2012, and the registration review Data Call-In was issued in February 2013. Syngenta is currently the only registrant of tralkoxydim products in the United States. In a letter to EPA, dated August 2, 2013, Syngenta requested voluntary cancellation of two tralkoxydim end-use products (EPA Registration Nos. 000100–01105 and 000100–01106). These are the last two tralkoxydim products registered for use in the United States. EPA is not proposing any tolerance actions for tralkoxydim at this time. If any tolerance actions become necessary in the future, there will be an announcement in the Federal Register and there will be a public comment period on the proposed action. Unless the Agency determines that there are substantive comments that warrant further review of the requests or the registrants withdraw their requests, EPA intends to issue an order in the Federal Register canceling all of the affected registrations.

Procedures for Withdrawal of Request 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. 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 registrants in Table 2 of Unit II. have requested that EPA waive the 180day comment period. Accordingly, EPA will provide a 30-day comment period on the proposed requests. Registrants who choose to withdraw a request for cancellation should submit such withdrawal in writing to the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. If the products have been subject to a previous cancellation action, the effective date of cancellation and all other provisions of any earlier cancellation action are controlling. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:29 Aug 20, 2013 Jkt 229001 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 cancellation action. Because the Agency has identified no significant potential risk concerns associated with the pesticide products listed in Table 1a and Table 1b of Unit II. of this notice, the proposed existing stocks provisions for these products are as follows. A. For All Products Identified in Table 1a in Unit II. EPA anticipates allowing registrants to sell and distribute existing stocks of these products for 1-year after PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 publication of the Cancellation Order in the Federal Register. Thereafter, registrants will be prohibited from selling or distributing the pesticides identified in Table 1a of Unit II., except for export consistent with FIFRA section 17 or for proper disposal. Persons other than registrants will generally be allowed to sell, distribute, or use existing stocks until such stocks are exhausted, provided that such sale, distribution, or use is consistent with the terms of the previously approved labeling on, or that accompanied, the canceled products. B. For All Tralkoxydim Products Identified in Table 1b in Unit II. EPA anticipates allowing the registrant to continue to sell and distribute the existing stocks of these products until November 1, 2014. Thereafter, registrants will be prohibited from selling or distributing the pesticides identified in Table 1b of Unit II., except for export consistent with FIFRA section 17 or for proper disposal. Additionally, persons other than the registrant may sell, distribute, or use existing stocks of these products until existing stocks are exhausted, provided that such sale, distribution, or use is consistent with the terms of the E:\FR\FM\21AUN1.SGM 21AUN1 51724 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 162 / Wednesday, August 21, 2013 / Notices previously approved labeling on, or that accompanied, the canceled products.

specific information that is claimed as CBI. In addition to one 
complete version of the comment that includes information claimed as 
CBI, a copy of the comment that does not contain the information 
claimed as CBI must be submitted for inclusion in the public docket. 
Information so marked will not be disclosed except in accordance with 
procedures set forth in 40 CFR part 2.
    2. Tips for preparing your comments. When submitting comments, 
remember to:

[[Page 51722]]

    i. Identify the document by docket ID number and other identifying 
information (subject heading, Federal Register date and page number).
    ii. Follow directions. The Agency may ask you to respond to 
specific questions or organize comments by referencing a Code of 
Federal Regulations (CFR) part or section number.
    iii. Explain why you agree or disagree; suggest alternatives and 
substitute language for your requested changes.
    iv. Describe any assumptions and provide any technical information 
and/or data that you used.
    v. If you estimate potential costs or burdens, explain how you 
arrived at your estimate in sufficient detail to allow for it to be 
reproduced.
    vi. Provide specific examples to illustrate your concerns and 
suggest alternatives.
    vii. Explain your views as clearly as possible, avoiding the use of 
profanity or personal threats.
    viii. Make sure to submit your comments by the comment period 
deadline identified.

II. What action is the agency taking?

    This notice announces receipt by the Agency of requests from 
registrants to cancel 29 pesticide products registered under FIFRA 
section 3 or 24(c). These registrations are listed in sequence by 
registration number (or company number and 24(c) number) in Tables 1a 
and 1b of this unit.
    This notice also announces receipt by EPA of requests from the 
registrant Syngenta Crop Protection, LLC (Syngenta) to cancel the last 
two remaining tralkoxydim product registrations. Tralkoxydim is a 
systemic, postemergence herbicide registered for agricultural use to 
selectively control certain annual grass weeds in wheat, barley, and 
triticale. Tolerances are currently established for tralkoxydim 
residues in or on the raw agricultural commodities barley and wheat (40 
CFR 180.548). There are no residential uses currently registered for 
tralkoxydim. The registration review process for tralkoxydim began in 
September 2011, with the issuance of the Preliminary Work Plan for 
Registration Review in the docket EPA-HQ-OPP-2011-0706 for a 60-day 
comment period. The Tralkoxydim Final Work Plan for Registration Review 
was completed in February 2012, and the registration review Data Call-
In was issued in February 2013. Syngenta is currently the only 
registrant of tralkoxydim products in the United States. In a letter to 
EPA, dated August 2, 2013, Syngenta requested voluntary cancellation of 
two tralkoxydim end-use products (EPA Registration Nos. 000100-01105 
and 000100-01106). These are the last two tralkoxydim products 
registered for use in the United States. EPA is not proposing any 
tolerance actions for tralkoxydim at this time. If any tolerance 
actions become necessary in the future, there will be an announcement 
in the Federal Register and there will be a public comment period on 
the proposed action.
    Unless the Agency determines that there are substantive comments 
that warrant further review of the requests or the registrants withdraw 
their requests, EPA intends to issue an order in the Federal Register 
canceling all of the affected registrations.

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.
    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 registrants in Table 2 of Unit II. have requested that EPA 
waive the 180-day comment period. Accordingly, EPA will provide a 30-
day comment period on the proposed requests.

IV. Procedures for Withdrawal of Request

    Registrants who choose to withdraw a request for cancellation 
should submit such withdrawal in writing to the person listed under FOR 
FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. If the products have been subject to a 
previous cancellation action, the effective date of cancellation and 
all other provisions of any earlier cancellation action are 
controlling.

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 
cancellation action. Because the Agency has identified no significant 
potential risk concerns associated with the pesticide products listed 
in Table 1a and Table 1b of Unit II. of this notice, the proposed 
existing stocks provisions for these products are as follows.

A. For All Products Identified in Table 1a in Unit II.

    EPA anticipates allowing registrants to sell and distribute 
existing stocks of these products for 1-year after publication of the 
Cancellation Order in the Federal Register. Thereafter, registrants 
will be prohibited from selling or distributing the pesticides 
identified in Table 1a of Unit II., except for export consistent with 
FIFRA section 17 or for proper disposal. Persons other than registrants 
will generally be allowed to sell, distribute, or use existing stocks 
until such stocks are exhausted, provided that such sale, distribution, 
or use is consistent with the terms of the previously approved labeling 
on, or that accompanied, the canceled products.

B. For All Tralkoxydim Products Identified in Table 1b in Unit II.

    EPA anticipates allowing the registrant to continue to sell and 
distribute the existing stocks of these products until November 1, 
2014. Thereafter, registrants will be prohibited from selling or 
distributing the pesticides identified in Table 1b of Unit II., except 
for export consistent with FIFRA section 17 or for proper disposal. 
Additionally, persons other than the registrant may sell, distribute, 
or use existing stocks of these products until existing stocks are 
exhausted, provided that such sale, distribution, or use is consistent 
with the terms of the

[[Page 51724]]

previously approved labeling on, or that accompanied, the canceled 
products.
