In this notice, EPA is amending the existing stocks provisions in the May 20, 2011 order to allow the sale or distribution of existing stocks of the identified methyl bromide products only for use on golf courses through November 30, 2014, and to limit the use of existing stocks of those products that are purchased after April 30, 2014 to use only on golf courses.

Methyl Bromide; Cancellation Order for Certain Pesticide 
Registrations and Amendment To Terminate a Certain Use; Amendment to 
Existing Stocks Provision

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: EPA issued a cancellation order in the Federal Register of May 
20, 2011 to, among other things, terminate use of products containing 
methyl bromide on golf courses. The effective date of cancellation for 
that use was December 31, 2013. The order provided that existing stocks 
of methyl bromide products that include the use on golf courses could 
be sold and distributed for 120 days after the effective date of 
cancellation, that is, until April 30, 2014. Two registrants have 
requested that EPA revise the cancellation order for the pesticide 
product registrations identified in Table 1 of Unit II to extend the 
last allowable date for sale and distribution of existing stocks of 
those products from April 30, 2014 to November 30, 2014 to allow sale 
and distribution of those existing stocks for golf course resurfacing 
during the 2014 use season. In this notice, EPA is amending the 
existing stocks provisions in the May 20, 2011 order to allow the sale 
or distribution of existing stocks of the identified methyl bromide 
products only for use on golf courses through November 30, 2014, and to 
limit the use of existing stocks of those products that are purchased 
after April 30, 2014 to use only on golf courses.

II. What action is the agency taking?

used as an acaricide, fungicide, herbicide, insecticide, nematicide, 
and vertebrate control agent. It is used most prevalently as a soil 
fumigant, but is also used as a postharvest treatment of commodities. 
In the Federal Register of May 20, 2011 (76 FR 29238) (FRL-8872-2), EPA 
published a cancellation order that terminated various uses of methyl 
bromide products. In letters dated January 20, 2014, two registrants, 
Soil Chemicals Corporation D/B/A Cardinal Professional Products and 
Trical, Inc., asked EPA to revise the provisions for existing stocks of 
certain products subject to that order. These registrations are listed 
in sequence by registration number in Table 1 of this unit.

    Soil Chemicals Corporation D/B/A Cardinal Professional Products, 
and Trical, Inc. have asked EPA to extend the last allowable date for 
the sale and distribution of existing stocks of the products identified 
above (as defined in the May 20, 2011 order) for use on golf courses 
from April 30, 2014 to November 30, 2014 to allow sale and distribution 
during the 2014 golf course use season.
    EPA hereby modifies the May 20, 2011 cancellation order to permit 
the sale and distribution of existing stocks of the methyl bromide 
registrations identified in Table 1 of Unit II for use on golf courses. 
This notice:
    1. Allows sale and distribution of existing stocks of the affected 
products until November 30, 2014;
    2. Allows use of existing stocks of the products purchased prior to 
April 30, 2014 according to the directions on the label for the product 
until those stocks are exhausted; and
    3. Allows use of existing stocks that were purchased after April 
30, 2014 only on golf courses according to the directions for that use 
on the label for the product until those stocks are exhausted.
    Provisions in the May 20, 2011 cancellation order that do not 
relate to use on golf courses are not affected by this revision.

III. What is the agency's authority for taking this action?

    Section 6(a)(1) of FIFRA provides that the Administrator may permit 
the continued sale and use of existing stocks of a pesticide whose 
registration is canceled to such extent, under such conditions, and for 
such uses as the Administrator determines that such sale or use is not 
inconsistent with the purposes of the Act. In the May 20, 2011 
cancellation order, EPA established various conditions and expiration 
dates for sale and use of existing stocks of methyl bromide products 
based on different use sites. This authority also allows EPA to revise 
those conditions so long as the continued sale and use of existing 
stocks of the canceled pesticides will not be inconsistent with the 
purposes of FIFRA.
