diazinon (D.Z.N., Spectracide) Products Cancellation Order 11/01



ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

[OPP-34225I; FRL-6809-5]


Diazinon; Products Cancellation Order

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY:  This notice announces EPA's cancellation order for the
product and use cancellations as requested by companies (hereafter
collectively referred to as the ``EUP Registrants'') that hold the
registrations of pesticide End-Use Products (EUPs) containing the
active ingredient diazinon and accepted by EPA, pursuant to section
6(f) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act
(FIFRA). This order follows up a September 13, 2001, notice of receipt
from the EUP Registrants, of requests for cancellations and or
amendments of their diazinon product registrations to terminate all
indoor uses, certain agricultural uses and certain outdoor non-
agricultural uses. In the September 13, 2001 notice, EPA indicated that
it would issue an order granting the voluntary product and use
registration cancellations unless the Agency received any substantive
comment within the comment period that would merit its further review
of these requests. The Agency did receive one request from an EUP
registrant revoking its voluntary cancellation requests for two
products. No other comments were received. Accordingly, EPA hereby
issues in this notice a cancellation order granting the remaining
requested cancellations. Any distribution, sale, or use of the products
subject to this cancellation order is only permitted in accordance with
the terms of the existing stocks provisions of this cancellation order.

DATES: The cancellations are effective November 15, 2001.

II. Receipt of Requests to Cancel and Amend Registrations to Delete
Uses

A. Background

    Certain registrants requested in letters dated May, June and August
2001, that their diazinon registrations be amended to delete all indoor
uses, certain agricultural uses, and any other uses that the
registrants do not wish to maintain. The requests also included
deletions of outdoor non-agricultural uses from the labeling of certain
end-use products so that such products would be labeled for
agricultural uses only. Similarly, other diazinon end-use registrants
requested voluntary cancellation of their diazinon EUP registrations
with indoor use and/or certain outdoor non-agricultural uses, and any
other uses that the registrants do not wish to maintain. EPA announced
its receipt of these above-mentioned cancellation requests in a Federal
Register notice dated September 13, 2001.
    These requested cancellations and amendments are consistent with
the requests in December 2000, by the manufacturers of diazinon
technical products, and EPA's approval of such requests, to terminate
all indoor uses and certain agricultural uses from their diazinon
product registrations because of EPA's concern with the potential
exposure risk, especially to children, associated with diazinon
containing products. The indoor uses and agricultural uses subject to
cancellation are identified in the following List.
    List -- Uses Requested for Termination
    1. Indoor uses: Pet collars, or inside any structure or vehicle,
vessel, or aircraft or any enclosed area, and/or on any contents
therein (except mushroom houses), including food/feed handling
establishments, greenhouses, schools, residences, museums, sports
facilities, stores, warehouses and hospitals.
    2. Agricultural uses: Alfalfa, bananas, Bermuda grass, dried beans,
dried peas, celery, red chicory (radicchio), citrus, clover, coffee,
cotton, cowpeas, cucumbers, dandelions, forestry (ground squirrel/
rodent burrow dust stations for public health use), kiwi, lespedeza,
parsley, parsnips, pastures, peppers, potatoes (Irish and sweet),
sheep, sorghum, squash (winter and summer), rangeland, Swiss chard,
tobacco, and turnips (roots and tops).


    In today's Cancellation Order, EPA is approving the registrants'
requested cancellations and amendments of the their diazinon end-use
products registrations to terminate all uses identified in the List.

    The Agency received a request from the EUP registrant Prentiss
Incorporated (EPA company number 655), revoking its voluntary
cancellation requests for two products that were included in the
September 13, 2001 notice. As a result, Prentox Liquid Household Spray
#1 (EPA registration no. 655-419) and Prentox Diazinon 4E (EPA
registration no. 655-457) are not included in this cancellation order.
EPA did not receive any substantive comments that would merit further
review expressing a need of diazinon products for indoor use.
Accordingly, the Agency is issuing an order in this notice canceling the
registrations identified in Table 1, as requested by the EUP registrants.

registrations to terminate the uses identified in the List, or any
other uses as specified for each product in the September 13, 2001
Diazinon 6(f) notice and reiterated in Table 2 below. EPA did not
receive any comments expressing a need for any of the canceled uses.
The registrations for which amendments to terminate specific uses were
requested are identified in the following Table 2.

orders that the diazinon end-use product registrations identified in
Table 1 are hereby canceled. The Agency, also orders that all of the
uses identified in the List and all other uses (including specific
outdoor non-agricultural uses) identified for deletion in Table 2 are

notice will be considered a violation of section 12(a)(2)(K) of FIFRA
and/or section 12(a)(1)(A) of FIFRA.

IV. Existing Stocks Provisions

    For purposes of this Order, the term ``existing stocks'' is
defined, pursuant to EPA's existing stocks policy (56 FR 29362, June
26, 1991), as those stocks of a registered pesticide product which are
currently in the United States and which have been packaged, labeled,
and released for shipment prior to the effective date of the amendment
or cancellation. The existing stocks provisions of this Cancellation
Order are as follows:
    1. Distribution or sale of products bearing instructions for use on
agricultural crops. The distribution or sale of existing stocks by the
registrant of any product listed in Table 1 or 2 that bears
instructions for use on the agricultural crops identified in the List,
will not be lawful under FIFRA 1 year after the effective date of the
cancellation order, except for the purposes of shipping such stocks for
export consistent with section 17 of FIFRA or for proper disposal.
Persons other than the registrant may continue to sell or distribute
the existing stocks of any product listed in Table 2 that bears
instructions for any of the agricultural uses identified in the List
after the effective date of the cancellation order.
    2. Distribution or sale of products bearing instructions for use on
outdoor non-agricultural sites. The distribution or sale of existing
stocks by the registrant of any product listed in Table 1 or 2 that
bears instructions for use on outdoor non-agricultural sites, will not
be lawful under FIFRA 1 year after the effective date of the
cancellation order, except for the purposes of shipping such stocks for
export consistent with section 17 of FIFRA or for proper disposal.
Persons other than the registrant may continue to sell or distribute
the existing stocks of any product listed in Table 1 or 2 that bears
instructions for use on outdoor non-agricultural sites after the
effective date of the cancellation order.
    3. Distribution or sale of products bearing instructions for use on
indoor sites. The distribution or sale of existing stocks by the
registrant of any product listed in Table 1 or 2 that bears
instructions for use at or on any indoor sites (except mushroom
houses), shall not be lawful under FIFRA as of the effective date of
the cancellation order, except for the purposes of shipping such stocks
for export consistent with section 17 of FIFRA or for proper disposal.
    4. Retail and other distribution or sale of existing stock of
products for indoor use. The distribution or sale of existing stocks by
any person other than the registrants of products listed in Table 1 or
2 bearing instructions for any indoor uses except mushroom houses will
not be lawful under FIFRA after December 31, 2002 except for the
purposes of shipping such stocks for export consistent with section 17
of FIFRA or for proper disposal.
    5. Use of existing stocks. EPA intends to permit the use of
existing stocks of products listed in Table 1 or 2 until such stocks
