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 methomyl 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.

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 methomyl 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 product 
cancellation or 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 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.
