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 the PCNB 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

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

requested termination), except for export consistent with FIFRA section 
17 or for proper disposal. The registrant will be permitted to relabel 
the products listed in Table 1 of Unit II. to conform with the 
requested use deletions as long as the registrant has verified that the 
products have been formulated from Technical PCNB that complies with 
the certified limits as amended on November 23, 2011 and June 13, 2012, 
and the registrant retains records demonstrating such compliance.
