These are not the last products containing these pesticides registered for use in the United States. In the November 29, 2013 notice, EPA indicated that it would issue an order implementing the amendments to terminate uses, 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. Further, the registrants did not withdraw their requests. Accordingly, EPA hereby issues in this notice a cancellation order granting the requested amendments to terminate uses. 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.

III. Summary of Public Comments Received and Agency Response to 
Comments

    During the public comment period provided, EPA received no comments 
in response to the November 29, 2013 Federal Register notice announcing 
the Agency's receipt of the requests for voluntary amendments to delete 
uses of products listed in Table 1 of Unit II.

 IV. Cancellation Order

    Pursuant to FIFRA section 6(f), EPA hereby approves the requested 
amendments to terminate uses of methiocarb, lambda-cyhalothrin and 
prodiamine registrations identified in Table 1 of Unit II. Accordingly, 
the Agency hereby orders that the product registrations identified in 
Table 1 of Unit II. are amended to terminate the affected uses. The 
effective date of the amendments that are subject of this notice is 
March 21, 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 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 on November 29, 2013. The comment period closed on December 30, 
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, 
labeled, and released for shipment prior to the effective date of the 
action. The existing stocks provision for the products subject to this 
order is as follows.
    Now that EPA has approved product labels reflecting the requested 
amendments to delete uses, registrants are permitted to sell or 
distribute products listed in Table 1 of Unit II. under the previously 
approved labeling until September 21, 2015, a period of 18 months after 
publication of the cancellation order in this Federal Register, unless 
other restrictions have been imposed. Thereafter, registrants will be 
prohibited from selling or distributing the products whose labels 
include the deleted uses identified in Table 1 of Unit II., except for 
export consistent with FIFRA section 17 or for proper disposal.
    Persons other than the registrant may sell, distribute, or use 
existing stocks of products whose labels include the deleted uses until 
supplies are exhausted, provided that such sale, distribution, or use 
is consistent with the terms of the previously approved labeling on, or 
that accompanied, the deleted uses.
