Availability of Meeting Materials: Prior to the meeting, the draft letters, agenda and other materials will be accessible through the calendar link on the blue navigation bar at http:// www.epa.gov/casac/. Procedures for Providing Public Input: Public comment for consideration by EPA’s federal advisory committees and panels has a different purpose from public comment provided to EPA program offices. Therefore, the process for submitting comments to a federal advisory committee is different from the process used to submit comments to an EPA program office. Federal advisory committees and panels, including scientific advisory committees, provide independent advice to EPA. Members of the public can submit relevant comments for a federal advisory committee to consider pertaining to EPA’s charge to the committee or review materials. Input from the public to the CASAC will have the most impact if it provides specific scientific, technical information or analysis or if it relates to the clarity or accuracy of the technical information for the CASAC’s consideration. Members of the public wishing to provide comment should contact the DFO directly. Oral Statements: In general, individuals or groups requesting an oral presentation at a public meeting will be limited to three minutes. Interested parties should contact Dr. Stallworth, DFO, in writing (preferably via email) at the contact information noted above by May 19, 2014 to be placed on the list of public VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:33 Mar 12, 2014 Jkt 232001 speakers for the teleconference. Written Statements: Written statements should be submitted to the DFO via email at the contact information noted above by May 19, 2014 for the teleconference so that the information may be made available to the CASAC Panel for their consideration. Written statements should be supplied in one of the following electronic formats: Adobe Acrobat PDF, MS Word, MS PowerPoint, or Rich Text files in IBM– PC/Windows 98/2000/XP format. It is the SAB Staff Office general policy to post public comments on the Web page for the advisory meeting or teleconference. Submitters are requested to provide an unsigned version of each document because the SAB Staff Office does not publish documents with signatures on its Web sites. Members of the public should be aware that their personal contact information, if included in any written comments, may be posted to the CASAC Web site. Copyrighted material will not be posted without explicit permission of the copyright holder. Accessibility: For information on access or services for individuals with disabilities, please contact Dr. Holly Stallworth at (202) 564–2073 or stallworth.holly@epa.gov. To request accommodation of a disability, please contact Dr. Stallworth preferably at least ten days prior to the meeting to give EPA as much time as possible to process your request.

[FR Doc. 2014–05530 Filed 3–12–14; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 6560–50–P 14247 voluntarily cancel these product registrations. In the November 20, 2013 notice, EPA indicated that it would issue an order implementing the cancellations, unless the Agency received substantive comments within the 30-day comment period that would merit its further review of these requests, or unless the registrants withdrew their requests. The Agency did not receive any comments on the notice. However, the Agency did receive notice via letter dated December 18, 2013 from the registrant Nufarm Americas Inc. to withdraw their voluntary cancellation request for products EPA Reg. Nos. 33688–2 (Nufarm S.A. Technical Butralin) and EPA Reg. No. 33688–4 (Tamex 3EC). Accordingly, EPA hereby issues in this notice a cancellation order granting the requested withdrawals and cancellations. Any distribution, sale, or use of the products subject to this cancellation order is permitted only in accordance with the terms of this order, including any existing stocks provisions. In addition, for pertinent information relating to the pesticide registrations for ME030004 and ME980001 as published in the November 20, 2013 notice, see Unit II. of this notice. DATES: The cancellations are effective March 13, 2014. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: John W. Pates, Jr., Pesticide Re-Evaluation Division (7508P), Office of Pesticide Programs, Environmental Protection Agency, 1200 Pennsylvania Ave. NW., Washington, DC 20460–0001; telephone number: (703) 308–8195; email address: pates.john@epa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. General Information ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY [EPA–HQ–OPP–2009–1017; FRL–9905–37] Product Cancellation Order for Certain Pesticide Registrations Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: This notice announces EPA’s order for the cancellations, voluntarily requested by the registrants and accepted by the Agency, of the products listed in Table 1 of Unit II., pursuant to the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). This cancellation order follows a November 20, 2013 Federal Register Notice of Receipt of Requests from the registrants listed in Table 2 of Unit II. to SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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. Since others also may be interested, the Agency has not attempted to describe all the specific entities that may be affected by this action. B. How can I get copies of this document and other related information? The docket for this action, identified by docket identification (ID) number EPA–HQ–OPP–2009–1017, is available at http://www.regulations.gov or at the Office of Pesticide Programs Regulatory Public Docket (OPP Docket) in the E:\FR\FM\13MRN1.SGM 13MRN1 14248 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 49 / Thursday, March 13, 2014 / Notices Environmental Protection Agency Docket Center (EPA/DC), EPA West Bldg., Rm. 3334, 1301 Constitution Ave. NW., Washington, DC 20460–0001. The Public Reading Room is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding legal holidays. The telephone number for the Public Reading Room is (202) 566–1744, and the telephone number for the OPP Docket is (703) 305–5805. Please review the visitor instructions and additional information about the docket available at http://www.epa.gov/dockets. II. What action is the agency taking? This notice announces the cancellation, as requested by registrants, of products registered under FIFRA section 3. These registrations are listed in sequence by registration number in Table 1 of this unit. The Agency also received notice via letter dated December 18, 2013 from the registrant Nufarm Americas Inc. to withdraw their voluntary cancellation request for products EPA Reg. No. 33688–2 (Nufarm S.A. Technical Butralin) and EPA Reg. No. 33688–4 (Tamex 3EC). Thus, these registrations have been removed from this cancellation order notice. In addition, pesticide registration numbers ME030004 and ME980001 and its contents have been removed from the listing in Table 1. EPA inadvertently listed the pesticide product names Glypro and RH–5992 2F Experimental Insecticide for pesticide registration numbers ME030004 and ME980001, respectively, in the Federal Register of November 20, 2013 (78 FR 69666) (FRL 9902–40). Therefore, this action excludes pesticide registration numbers ME030004 and ME980001 from cancellation at this time. EPA will reissue pesticide product numbers ME030004 and ME980001 for voluntary cancellation in a future Federal Register notice.

It is also available on the Commission’s Web site at http://www.fcc.gov. The North American Numbering Council (NANC) has scheduled a closed meeting to be held Wednesday, March 26, 2014 at 1:30 p.m. The meeting will be held at the Federal Communications Commission, Portals II, 445 12th Street SW., Washington, DC. The notice of this meeting was first published in the Federal Register on March 13, 2014, 13 days in advance of the meeting on March 26, 2014. While the publication did not meet the 15-day requirement for advance publication, exceptional circumstances warrant proceeding with the March 26, 2014 NANC meeting. The NANC Chair, Vice Chair, and most NANC members were informed of the potential March 26 meeting via emails in January. The rest of the NANC members were notified informally of the proposed March 26 meeting in January or February, and on more than one occasion. A significant number of Council members have made business and travel plans in accordance with this schedule, and there is no date within one month of the planned date that will accommodate Council members’ schedules. Delaying the meeting will also cause undue financial burdens on many of the members who have made travel arrangements. Further, recognizing the delay in Federal Register publication, the agency issued a Public Notice of this meeting on March 10, 2014, to mitigate the late Federal Register publication delay and as an additional way of advising the public of this meeting. The agency has also posted all NANC meeting dates on the FCC NANC Web site to further inform the public. As the March meeting date has been disseminated to all NANC members and the public, the March 26, 2014 meeting has now been broadly announced. People with Disabilities: To request materials in accessible formats for people with disabilities (braille, large print, electronic files, audio format), send an email to fcc504@fcc.gov or call the Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau at 202–418–0530 (voice), 202– 418–0432 (tty). Reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities are available upon request. Include a description of the accommodation you will need, including as much detail as you can. Also include a way we can contact you if we need more information. Please E:\FR\FM\13MRN1.SGM 13MRN1

Product Cancellation Order for Certain Pesticide Registrations

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: This notice announces EPA's order for the cancellations, 
voluntarily requested by the registrants and accepted by the Agency, of 
the products listed in Table 1 of Unit II., pursuant to the Federal 
Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). This cancellation 
order follows a November 20, 2013 Federal Register Notice of Receipt of 
Requests from the registrants listed in Table 2 of Unit II. to 
voluntarily cancel these product registrations. In the November 20, 
2013 notice, EPA indicated that it would issue an order implementing 
the cancellations, unless the Agency received substantive comments 
within the 30-day comment period that would merit its further review of 
these requests, or unless the registrants withdrew their requests. The 
Agency did not receive any comments on the notice. However, the Agency 
did receive notice via letter dated December 18, 2013 from the 
registrant Nufarm Americas Inc. to withdraw their voluntary 
cancellation request for products EPA Reg. Nos. 33688-2 (Nufarm S.A. 
Technical Butralin) and EPA Reg. No. 33688-4 (Tamex 3EC). Accordingly, 
EPA hereby issues in this notice a cancellation order granting the 
requested withdrawals and cancellations. Any distribution, sale, or use 
of the products subject to this cancellation order is permitted only in 
accordance with the terms of this order, including any existing stocks 
provisions. In addition, for pertinent information relating to the 
pesticide registrations for ME030004 and ME980001 as published in the 
November 20, 2013 notice, see Unit II. of this notice.

DATES: The cancellations are effective March 13, 2014.

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. Since others also may be interested, the Agency 
has not attempted to describe all the specific entities that may be 
affected by this action.

B. How can I get copies of this document and other related information?

    The docket for this action, identified by docket identification 
(ID) number EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-1017, is available at http://www.regulations.gov or at the Office of Pesticide Programs Regulatory 
Public Docket (OPP Docket) in the

Environmental Protection Agency Docket Center (EPA/DC), EPA West Bldg., 
Rm. 3334, 1301 Constitution Ave. NW., Washington, DC 20460-0001. The 
Public Reading Room is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through 
Friday, excluding legal holidays. The telephone number for the Public 
Reading Room is (202) 566-1744, and the telephone number for the OPP 
Docket is (703) 305-5805. Please review the visitor instructions and 
additional information about the docket available at http://www.epa.gov/dockets.

II. What action is the agency taking?

    This notice announces the cancellation, as requested by 
registrants, of products registered under FIFRA section 3. These 
registrations are listed in sequence by registration number in Table 1 
of this unit.
    The Agency also received notice via letter dated December 18, 2013 
from the registrant Nufarm Americas Inc. to withdraw their voluntary 
cancellation request for products EPA Reg. No. 33688-2 (Nufarm S.A. 
Technical Butralin) and EPA Reg. No. 33688-4 (Tamex 3EC). Thus, these 
registrations have been removed from this cancellation order notice. In 
addition, pesticide registration numbers ME030004 and ME980001 and its 
contents have been removed from the listing in Table 1. EPA 
inadvertently listed the pesticide product names Glypro and RH-5992 2F 
Experimental Insecticide for pesticide registration numbers ME030004 
and ME980001, respectively, in the Federal Register of November 20, 
2013 (78 FR 69666) (FRL 9902-40). Therefore, this action excludes 
pesticide registration numbers ME030004 and ME980001 from cancellation 
at this time. EPA will reissue pesticide product numbers ME030004 and 
ME980001 for voluntary cancellation in a future Federal Register 
notice.

 IV. Cancellation Order

    Pursuant to FIFRA section 6(f), EPA hereby approves the requested

Accordingly, the Agency hereby orders that the product registrations 
identified in Table 1 of Unit II. are canceled. The effective date of 
the cancellations that are the subject of this notice is March 13, 
2014. Any distribution, sale, or use of existing stocks of the products 
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 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

[[Page 14250]]

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 EPA Administrator may approve such a 
request. The notice of receipt for this action was published for 
comment in the Federal Register issue of November 20, 2013 (78 FR 
69666) (FRL-9902-40). The comment period closed on December 20, 2013.

VI. Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks

    Existing stocks are those stocks of registered pesticide products 
which are currently in the United States and which were packaged,

accordance with FIFRA section 17, or proper disposal. Persons other 
than the registrants may sell, distribute, or use existing stocks of 
products listed in Table 1 of Unit II. until existing stocks are

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