SUMMARY: EPA uses PCA adjustment factors to modify modeled concentrations of pesticides in surface waters in accordance with land cover types (i.e., crops) associated with a pesticide’s uses. PCA-adjusted concentrations are used as estimated drinking water concentrations in human health risk assessments. Previously, PCAs were generated for Hydrologic Unit Code 8 (HUC–8) regions (part of a hierarchical system for classifying and mapping drainage areas in the United States). In this current update, PCAs have been generated for watersheds delineated based on surface-source drinking water intakes (DWI) of community water systems (CWSs) across the United States The new PCAs are an improvement over previously calculated PCAs in terms of their relevance to human health VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:53 May 08, 2014 Jkt 232001 AGENCY: In accordance with the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), EPA is issuing a notice of receipt of requests by the registrants to voluntarily amend their Iprodione, Pendimethalin, and Permethrin product registrations to delete one or more uses.

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. Section 6(f)(1)(B) of FIFRA requires that before acting on a request for voluntary cancellation, EPA must provide a 30-day public comment period on the request for voluntary cancellation or use termination. In addition, FIFRA section 6(f)(1)(C) requires that EPA provide a 180-day comment period on a request for voluntary cancellation or termination of any minor agricultural use before granting the request, unless: 1. The registrants request a waiver of the comment period, or 2. The EPA Administrator determines that continued use of the pesticide would pose an unreasonable adverse effect on the environment. The Iprodione, Pendimethalin, and Permethrin registrants have requested that EPA waive the 180-day comment period. Accordingly, EPA will provide a 30-day comment period on the proposed requests. V. Procedures for Withdrawal of Requests ehiers on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES VI. Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks Existing stocks are those stocks of registered pesticide products that are currently in the United States and that were packaged, labeled, and released for shipment prior to the effective date of the action.

If the products(s) have been subject to a previous cancellation action, the effective date of cancellation and all other provisions of any earlier cancellation action are controlling. VerDate Mar<15>2010 In any order issued in response to these requests for amendments to delete uses, EPA proposes to include the following provisions for the treatment of any existing stocks of the products listed in Table 1 of Unit III. Once EPA has approved product labels reflecting the requested amendments to delete uses, registrants will be permitted to sell or distribute products under the previously approved labeling for a period of 18 months after the date of Federal Register publication of the cancellation order, 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 III., 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.

IV. 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.
    Section 6(f)(1)(B) of FIFRA requires that before acting on a 
request for voluntary cancellation, EPA must provide a 30-day public 
comment period on the request for voluntary cancellation or use 
termination. In addition, FIFRA section 6(f)(1)(C) requires that EPA 
provide a 180-day comment period on a request for voluntary 
cancellation or termination of any minor agricultural use before 
granting the request, unless:
    1. The registrants request a waiver of the comment period, or
    2. The EPA Administrator determines that continued use of the 
pesticide would pose an unreasonable adverse effect on the environment.
    The Iprodione, Pendimethalin, and Permethrin registrants have 
requested that EPA waive the 180-day comment period. Accordingly, EPA 
will provide a 30-day comment period on the proposed requests.

V. Procedures for Withdrawal of Requests

    Registrants who choose to withdraw a request for use deletion 
should submit the withdrawal in writing to the person listed under FOR 
FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. If the products(s) have been subject to a 
previous cancellation action, the effective date of cancellation and 
all other provisions of any earlier cancellation action are 
controlling.

VI. Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks

    Existing stocks are those stocks of registered pesticide products 
that are currently in the United States and that were packaged, 
labeled, and released for shipment prior to the effective date of the 
action. If the requests for voluntary amendments to delete uses are 
granted, the Agency intends to publish the cancellation order in the 
Federal Register.
    In any order issued in response to these requests for amendments to 
delete uses, EPA proposes to include the following provisions for the 
treatment of any existing stocks of the products listed in Table 1 of 
Unit III.
    Once EPA has approved product labels reflecting the requested 
amendments to delete uses, registrants will be permitted to sell or 
distribute products under the previously approved labeling for a period 
of 18 months after the date of Federal Register publication of the 
cancellation order, 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 III., 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.
