This notice announces EPA's order for the cancellations, voluntarily requested by the registrants, and accepted by the Agency, of the products listed in Tables 1 and 2 of Unit II., pursuant to the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). This cancellation order follows a May 29, 2013Federal RegisterNotice of Receipt of Requests from the registrants listed in Table 3 of Unit II., to voluntarily cancel these product registrations.

Accordingly, EPA hereby issues in this notice a cancellation order granting the requested cancellations.
