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.
