III. Cancellation Order

    Pursuant to section 6(f) of FIFRA, EPA hereby approves the 
requested cancellations of diazinon product registrations identified in 
Table 1 in Unit II. Accordingly, the Agency orders that the diazinon 
products identified in Table 1 in Unit II are hereby canceled. Any 
distribution, sale, or use of existing stocks of the products 
identified in Table 1 in Unit II in a manner inconsistent with any of 
the Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks set forth below in 
Unit V will be considered a violation of FIFRA.

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. 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.

V. Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks

    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. The cancellation order issued in this Notice 
includes the following existing stocks provisions:
    1. Sale and distribution of these outdoor non-agricultural end-use 
products containing diazinon will not be permitted after December 31, 
2004, except for purposes of product recovery pursuant to the December 
5, 2000, Memorandum of Agreement between EPA and diazinon registrants, 
shipping such stocks for export consistent with the requirements of 
FIFRA section 17, or proper disposal in accordance with applicable law.
    2. Use of existing stocks may continue until stocks are exhausted. 
Any such use must be in accordance with the label.
