These registrations are listed in sequence by registration number (or company number and 24(c) number) in Table 1 of this unit. This notice announces receipt by EPA of a request from the registrant Nufarm SA to cancel the last three remaining amitrole product registrations. Amitrole is a triazole-containing herbicide registered for use for outdoor general weed control to non-agricultural rightsof-way, industrial and construction sites, fencerows, and other uncultivated areas. Tolerances are not currently established for amitrole as there are no registered food or feed uses. There are no residential uses currently registered for amitrole. The registration review process for amitrole began in June 2011, with the issuance of the Preliminary Work Plan for Registration Review in the docket EPA–HQ–OPP–2011–0105 for a 60-day public comment period. The Amitrole Final Work Plan for Registration Review was completed and placed in the docket in December 2011, and the registration review data-call-in was issued in November 2012. Nufarm SA is the only current registrant of amitrole products. In a letter to EPA, dated May 30, 2013, Nufarm SA requested voluntary cancellation of the amitrole technical product (EPA Registration No. 33688–5) and the two remaining amitrole end-use products (EPA Registration Nos. 33688–6 and 33688–10). These are the last three amitrole products registered for use in the United States. 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 listed in Table 1 of this unit.

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. VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:21 Aug 27, 2013 Jkt 229001 The registrants in Table 2 of Unit II. have not requested that EPA waive the 180-day comment period. Accordingly, EPA will provide a 180-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 PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 these pesticide products, upon cancellation of the products identified in Table 1 of 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 1 of Unit II., except for export consistent with FIFRA section 17 or for proper disposal persons other than the 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.

Additional Information About the Proposed Consent Decree The proposed consent decree would resolve a lawsuit filed by Sandra L. Bahr and David Matusow (‘‘Plaintiffs’’) seeking to compel the Administrator to take actions under CAA section 110(c)(1) to promulgate a federal implementation plan (‘‘FIP’’) for the State of Arizona. A portion of Arizona, including Maricopa County and a part of Pinal County, is designated nonattainment for the National Ambient Air Quality Standard (‘‘NAAQS’’) for particulate matter ten microns in diameter or less (‘‘PM10’’). This area is classified as a ‘‘serious’’ PM10 nonattainment area. Because the area had not attained the NAAQS by the applicable statutory attainment date, Arizona was required to submit a revision to its state implementation plan (‘‘SIP’’) to meet the requirements of CAA section 189(d). On February 14, 2011, EPA found that Arizona failed to make the SIP submission required under CAA section 189(d) by the required deadline. This finding of failure to submit started a 2-year clock under CAA section 110(c)(1) for EPA to promulgate a FIP to meet the obligations of CAA section 189(d). EPA did not promulgate the required FIP by the statutory deadline and this is the basis for the Plaintiffs’ mandatory duty lawsuit at issue in the proposed consent decree. The proposed consent decree provides that no later than January 14, 2014, a notice or notices of the Agency’s proposed action or actions to either approve a SIP, promulgate a FIP, or approve a SIP in part with the promulgation of a partial FIP to address the requirements of CAA section 189(d). The proposed consent decree also provides that no later than June 2, 2014, a notice or notices of the Agency’s final action or actions to either approve a SIP, promulgate a FIP, or approve a SIP in part with the promulgation of a partial FIP to address the requirements of CAA section 189(d). The proposed consent decree requires that no later than 15 business days following signature of each notice, EPA shall send the notice or notices to the Office of the Federal Register for review and publication in the Federal Register. After EPA fulfills its obligations under the proposed consent decree, the consent decree shall be terminated and the case dismissed with prejudice. For a period of thirty (30) days following the date of publication of this BILLING CODE 6560–50–P ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY Proposed Consent Decree, Clean Air Act Citizen Suit Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). ACTION: Notice of proposed consent decree; request for public comment. AGENCY: In accordance with section 113(g) of the Clean Air Act, as amended (‘‘CAA’’ or the ‘‘Act’’), notice is hereby given of a proposed consent decree to address a lawsuit filed by Sandra L. Bahr and David Matusow in the United States District Court for the District of Arizona: Bahr, et al. v. McCarthy, No. 2:13–cv–00872 SMM (D. AZ). On April 30, 2013, Plaintiffs filed a complaint alleging that EPA failed to perform a mandatory duty under CAA section 110(c)(1) to promulgate a federal implementation plan for the State of Arizona that arose as a result of EPA’s February 14, 2011, finding of failure to submit a revision to the state implementation plan required under CAA section 189(d), by the required deadline. The proposed consent decree establishes deadlines for EPA to take action. DATES: Written comments on the proposed consent decree must be received by September 27, 2013.

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. Clearly mark the part or all of the 
information that you claim to be CBI. For CBI information in a disk or 
CD-ROM that you mail to EPA, mark the outside of the disk or CD-ROM as 
CBI and then identify electronically within the disk or CD-ROM the 
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:
    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

    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 17 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 Table 1 of 
this unit.
    This notice announces receipt by EPA of a request from the 
registrant Nufarm SA to cancel the last three remaining amitrole 
product registrations. Amitrole is a triazole-containing herbicide 
registered for use for outdoor general weed control to non-agricultural 
rights-of-way, industrial and construction sites, fencerows, and other 
uncultivated areas. Tolerances are not currently established for 
amitrole as there are no registered food or feed uses. There are no 
residential uses currently registered for amitrole. The registration 
review process for amitrole began in June 2011, with the issuance of 
the Preliminary Work Plan for Registration Review in the docket EPA-HQ-
OPP-2011-0105 for a 60-day public comment period. The Amitrole Final 
Work Plan for Registration Review was completed and placed in the 
docket in December 2011, and the registration review data-call-in was 
issued in November 2012. Nufarm SA is the only current registrant of 
amitrole products. In a letter to EPA, dated May 30, 2013, Nufarm SA 
requested voluntary cancellation of the amitrole technical product (EPA 
Registration No. 33688-5) and the two remaining amitrole end-use 
products (EPA Registration Nos. 33688-6 and 33688-10). These are the 
last three amitrole products registered for use in the United States.
    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 listed in Table 1 of this 
unit.

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 not requested that EPA 
waive the 180-day comment period. Accordingly, EPA will provide a 180-
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 these pesticide products, upon 
cancellation of the products identified in Table 1 of 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 1 of Unit II., except for export consistent with FIFRA section 17 
or for proper disposal persons other than the 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.
