III. 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. FIFRA further provides that, before acting on the request, 
EPA must publish a notice of receipt of any such request in the Federal 
Register. Thereafter, the Administrator may approve such a request.

IV. Procedures for Withdrawal of Request

    Registrants who choose to withdraw a request for cancellation must 
submit such withdrawal in writing to the person listed under FOR 
FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT, postmarked before October 13, 2003 or May 
16, 2003 for EPA Registration Numbers 003008-00021, 075341-00001 and 
075341-00007. This written withdrawal of the request for cancellation 
will apply only to the applicable FIFRA section 6(f)(1) request listed 
in this notice. If the product(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. The 
withdrawal request must also include a commitment to pay any 
reregistration fees due, and to fulfill any applicable unsatisfied data 

V. Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks

    The effective date of cancellation will be the date of the 
cancellation order. The orders effecting these requested cancellations 
will generally permit a registrant to sell or distribute existing 
stocks for 1 year after the date the cancellation request was received. 
This policy is in accordance with the Agency's statement of policy as 
prescribed in the Federal Register of June 26, 1991 (56 FR 29362) (FRL-
3846-4). Exceptions to this general rule will be made if a product 
poses a risk concern, or is in noncompliance with reregistration 
requirements, or is subject to a data call-in. In all cases, product-
specific disposition dates will be given in the cancellation orders.
    Existing stocks are those stocks of registered pesticide products 
which are currently in the United States and which have been packaged, 
labeled, and released for shipment prior to the effective date of the 
cancellation action.

[[Page 18638]]

Unless the provisions of an earlier order apply, existing stocks 
already in the hands of dealers or users can be distributed, sold, or 
used legally until they are exhausted, provided that such further sale 
and use comply with the EPA-approved label and labeling of the affected 
product. Exception to these general rules will be made in specific 
cases when more stringent restrictions on sale, distribution, or use of 
the products or their ingredients have already been imposed, as in a 
Special Review action, or where the Agency has identified significant 
potential risk concerns associated with a particular chemical.
