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 Federal Register. Section 6(f)(1)(B) of FIFRA (7 U.S.C. 136d(f)(1)(B)) 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) (7 U.S.C. 136d(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 registrants listed in Table 3 of Unit II have requested that EPA waive the 180-day comment period. Accordingly, EPA will provide a 30-day comment period on the proposed requests. daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES IV. Procedures for Withdrawal of Request Registrants who choose to withdraw a request for product cancellation or use termination should submit the withdrawal in writing to the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. If the products have been subject to a previous cancellation or termination action, the effective date of cancellation or termination and all other provisions of any earlier cancellation or termination action are controlling. V. Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks Existing stocks are those stocks of registered pesticide products that are VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:46 Oct 16, 2018 Jkt 247001 currently in the United States and that were packaged, labeled, and released for shipment prior to the effective date of the cancellation action.

A. For Product 432–1578 The registrant has requested to the Agency via letter dated November 14, 2017 to sell existing stocks for an 18month period, until June 2019, for product 432–1578. B. For Products 2217–759, 2217–766, 2217–767, 2217–768 & 2217–802 The registrant has requested to the Agency via letter, to sell existing stocks for a 2-year period for products 2217– 759, 2217–766, 2217–767, 2217–768 & 2217–802.

For all other voluntary product cancellations, identified in Table 1 of Unit II, registrants will be permitted to sell and distribute existing stocks of voluntarily canceled products for 1 year after the effective date of the cancellation, which will be the date of publication of the cancellation order in the Federal Register. Thereafter, registrants will be prohibited from selling or distributing the products identified in Table 1 of Unit II, except for export consistent with FIFRA section 17 (7 U.S.C. 136o) or for proper disposal. Once EPA has approved product labels reflecting the requested amendments to terminate uses, identified in Table 2 of Unit II, registrants will be permitted to sell or PO 00000 Frm 00071 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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.

III. 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 Federal 
Register.
    Section 6(f)(1)(B) of FIFRA (7 U.S.C. 136d(f)(1)(B)) 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) 
(7 U.S.C. 136d(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 registrants listed in Table 3 of Unit II have requested that 
EPA waive the 180-day comment period. Accordingly, EPA will provide a 
30-day comment period on the proposed requests.

IV. Procedures for Withdrawal of Request

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

V. 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 
cancellation action.
    In any order issued in response to these requests for cancellation 
of product registrations and for amendments to terminate uses, EPA 
proposes to include the following provisions for the treatment of any 
existing stocks of the products listed in Tables 1 and 2 of Unit II.

A. For Product 432-1578

    The registrant has requested to the Agency via letter dated 
November 14, 2017 to sell existing stocks for an 18-month period, until 
June 2019, for product 432-1578.

B. For Products 2217-759, 2217-766, 2217-767, 2217-768 & 2217-802

    The registrant has requested to the Agency via letter, to sell 
existing stocks for a 2-year period for products 2217-759, 2217-766, 
2217-767, 2217-768 & 2217-802.

C. For Products 66330-24, 66330-26, 66330-27, 66330-209, 66330-235, 
66330-238, & 66330-239

    The registrant has requested to the Agency via letter, to sell 
existing stocks for an 18-month period for products 66330-24, 66330-26, 
66330-27, 66330-209, 66330-235, 66330-238, & 66330-239.
    For all other voluntary product cancellations, identified in Table 
1 of Unit II, registrants will be permitted to sell and distribute 
existing stocks of voluntarily canceled products for 1 year after the 
effective date of the cancellation, which will be the date of 
publication of the cancellation order in the Federal Register. 
Thereafter, registrants will be prohibited from selling or distributing 
the products identified in Table 1 of Unit II, except for export 
consistent with FIFRA section 17 (7 U.S.C. 136o) or for proper 
disposal.
    Once EPA has approved product labels reflecting the requested 
amendments to terminate uses, identified in Table 2 of Unit II, 
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 terminated uses identified in Table 2 of Unit II, 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 canceled products and 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 canceled 
products and terminated uses.
