IV. Cancellation Order Pursuant to FIFRA section 6(f) (7 U.S.C. 136d(f)), EPA hereby approves VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:01 Jun 29, 2016 Jkt 238001 the requested cancellations and amendments to terminate uses of the registrations identified in Tables 1 and 2 of Unit II. Accordingly, the Agency hereby orders that the product registrations identified in Tables 1 and 2 of Unit II. are canceled or amended to terminate the affected uses. The effective date of the cancellations and amendments that are the subject of this notice is June 30, 2016. Any distribution, sale, or use of existing stocks of the products identified in Tables 1 and 2 of Unit II. in a manner inconsistent with any of the provisions PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 (7 U.S.C. 136d(f)(1)) 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 E:\FR\FM\30JNN1.SGM 30JNN1 42704 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 126 / Thursday, June 30, 2016 / Notices Federal Register.

Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks Existing stocks are those stocks of registered pesticide products which are currently in the United States and which were packaged, labeled, and released for shipment prior to the effective date of the action. The existing stocks provision for the products subject to this order is as follows. mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES A. For Products 524–523, 10163–291, 10163–292, and 100–1249 in Table 1 of Unit II The registrants have indicated to the Agency via written response that there are no existing stocks of these specific products. Therefore, no existing stocks date is necessary. Registrants are prohibited from selling or distributing these specific products listed in Table 1 of Unit II., except for export consistent with FIFRA section 17 (7 U.S.C. 136o) or for proper disposal. Because products 524–523 and 100–1249 were not sold or marketed into the channels of trade, persons other than the registrant do not need an existing stocks period. Regarding products 10163–291 and 10163–292, while the registrant no longer has any inventory, persons other than the registrants may sell, distribute, or use existing stocks of the affected canceled products until existing stocks are exhausted, provided that such sale, distribution, or use is consistent with the terms of the previously approved labeling on, or that accompanied, the canceled products. B. For All Other Products Identified in Table 1 of Unit II The registrants may continue to sell and distribute existing stocks of all other products listed in Table 1 of Unit II. until June 30, 2017, which is 1-year after the publication of the Cancellation Order in the Federal Register. Thereafter, the registrants are prohibited from selling or distributing products listed in Table 1 of Unit II., except for export in accordance with FIFRA section 17 (7 U.S.C. 136o) or for purposes of proper disposal. Persons other than the registrants may sell, distribute, or use existing stocks of the affected canceled products until existing stocks are exhausted, provided that such sale, distribution, or use is VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:01 Jun 29, 2016 Jkt 238001 consistent with the terms of the previously approved labeling on, or that accompanied, the canceled products. C. For All Products Identified in Table 2 of Unit II Now that EPA has approved product labels reflecting the requested amendments to delete uses, registrants are permitted to sell or distribute products listed in Table 2 of Unit II. under the previously approved labeling until January 2, 2018, a period of 18 months after publication of the cancellation order in this Federal Register, 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 2 of Unit II., except for export consistent with FIFRA section 17 (7 U.S.C. 136o) or for purposes of proper disposal. Persons other than the registrant may sell, distribute, or use existing stocks of the products whose labels include the terminated 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 products with the terminated uses.

III. Summary of Public Comments Received and Agency Response to 
Comments

    During the public comment period provided, EPA received no comments 
in response to the January 5, 2016 Federal Register notice announcing 
the Agency's receipt of the requests for voluntary cancellations and 
amendments to delete uses of products listed in Tables 1 and 2 of Unit 
II.

IV. Cancellation Order

    Pursuant to FIFRA section 6(f) (7 U.S.C. 136d(f)), EPA hereby 
approves the requested cancellations and amendments to terminate uses 
of the registrations identified in Tables 1 and 2 of Unit II. 
Accordingly, the Agency hereby orders that the product registrations 
identified in Tables 1 and 2 of Unit II. are canceled or amended to 
terminate the affected uses. The effective date of the cancellations 
and amendments that are the subject of this notice is June 30, 2016. 
Any distribution, sale, or use of existing stocks of the products 
identified in Tables 1 and 2 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 (7 U.S.C. 136d(f)(1)) 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

[[Page 42704]]

Federal Register. Thereafter, following the public comment period, the 
EPA Administrator may approve such a request. The notice of receipt for 
this action was published for comment in the Federal Register of 
January 5, 2016 (81 FR 236) (FRL-9937-07). The comment period closed on 
February 4, 2016.

VI. Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks

    Existing stocks are those stocks of registered pesticide products 
which are currently in the United States and which were packaged, 
labeled, and released for shipment prior to the effective date of the 
action. The existing stocks provision for the products subject to this 
order is as follows.

A. For Products 524-523, 10163-291, 10163-292, and 100-1249 in Table 1 
of Unit II

    The registrants have indicated to the Agency via written response 
that there are no existing stocks of these specific products. 
Therefore, no existing stocks date is necessary. Registrants are 
prohibited from selling or distributing these specific products listed 
in Table 1 of Unit II., except for export consistent with FIFRA section 
17 (7 U.S.C. 136o) or for proper disposal. Because products 524-523 and 
100-1249 were not sold or marketed into the channels of trade, persons 
other than the registrant do not need an existing stocks period. 
Regarding products 10163-291 and 10163-292, while the registrant no 
longer has any inventory, persons other than the registrants may sell, 
distribute, or use existing stocks of the affected canceled products 
until existing stocks are exhausted, provided that such sale, 
distribution, or use is consistent with the terms of the previously 
approved labeling on, or that accompanied, the canceled products.

B. For All Other Products Identified in Table 1 of Unit II

    The registrants may continue to sell and distribute existing stocks 
of all other products listed in Table 1 of Unit II. until June 30, 
2017, which is 1-year after the publication of the Cancellation Order 
in the Federal Register. Thereafter, the registrants are prohibited 
from selling or distributing products listed in Table 1 of Unit II., 
except for export in accordance with FIFRA section 17 (7 U.S.C. 136o) 
or for purposes of proper disposal.
    Persons other than the registrants may sell, distribute, or use 
existing stocks of the affected canceled products until existing stocks 
are exhausted, provided that such sale, distribution, or use is 
consistent with the terms of the previously approved labeling on, or 
that accompanied, the canceled products.

C. For All Products Identified in Table 2 of Unit II

    Now that EPA has approved product labels reflecting the requested 
amendments to delete uses, registrants are permitted to sell or 
distribute products listed in Table 2 of Unit II. under the previously 
approved labeling until January 2, 2018, a period of 18 months after 
publication of the cancellation order in this Federal Register, 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 2 of Unit II., except for 
export consistent with FIFRA section 17 (7 U.S.C. 136o) or for purposes 
of proper disposal.
    Persons other than the registrant may sell, distribute, or use 
existing stocks of the products whose labels include the terminated 
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 products with the 
terminated uses.
