Pesticide News Story: EPA Issues Cancellation Order for Remaining Azinphos-methyl Uses

For Release: February 22, 2008

EPA has published an order canceling and amending the registrations of pesticide products containing azinphos-methyl (AZM) to terminate the remaining uses of this pesticide by 2012, as voluntarily requested by the registrants. Consistent with EPA’s November 2006 final decision for the remaining uses of AZM, the cancellation order published in the Federal Register on February 20, 2008, terminates the last AZM products registered for use in the United States. It includes the following provisions.

EPA’s cancellation order follows an August 8, 2007, Federal Register notice that announced the Agency’s receipt of requests from AZM registrants to voluntarily cancel and amend to terminate all AZM product registrations by September 30, 2012. The Agency received no comments on that Federal Register notice and proceeded with the AZM cancellation order. Existing stocks provisions are detailed in that document.

EPA’s February 20, 2008, Federal Register notice is available on the Agency’s Web site. Further information about EPA’s review of AZM is available in docket number EPA-HQ-OPP-2005-0061 at http://www.regulations.gov and on the Agency’s AZM Web page.
