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

    During the public comment period, EPA received one comment. The 
Agency does not believe that the comment submitted during the comment 
period merits further review or a denial of the request for voluntary 
cancellation.

IV. Cancellation Order

    Pursuant to FIFRA section 6(f), EPA hereby approves the requested 
cancellations of the 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 cancelled. The effective date of 
the cancellations that are the subject of this notice is April 11, 
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 cancelled 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 in the Federal Register issue of August 28, 2013 (78 FR 53141) 
(FRL-9396-4). The comment period closed on February 24, 2014.

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 
cancellation action. The existing stocks provisions for the products 
subject to this order are as follows.
    The registrants may continue to sell and distribute existing stocks 
of products listed in Table 1 of Unit II. until April 13, 2015, which 
is 1 year after the publication of the Cancellation Order in the 
Federal Register. Thereafter, the registrants are prohibited from 
selling or distributing products listed in Table 1 of Unit II., except 
for export in 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 exhausted, provided that such sale, distribution, 
or use is consistent with the terms of the previously approved labeling 
on, or that accompanied, the cancelled products.
