On August 29, 2012, EPA amended the existing stocks provision of the cancellation order of February 20, 2008, (73 FR 9328), (FRL-8349-8), as corrected on March 26, 2008, (73 FR 16006), (FRL-8355-1) to provide growers with an additional year to use existing stocks of AZM. All the required mitigation measures now reflected on AZM labeling will remain in effect during this use. Distribution or sale of AZM after September 30, 2012, remains prohibited as provided in the February 20, 2008, cancellation order.
The specific terms of the August 29, 2012, existing stocks amendment are as follows:
EPA hereby modifies the cancellation order of February 20, 2008 (73 FR 9328, as amended at 73 FR 16006) to permit use of existing stocks of AZM products until September 30, 2013. Any use of such products must be in accordance with all terms of the previously approved labeling (other than the provisions prohibiting use after September 30, 2012). The distribution and sale provisions of the February 20, 2008 order remain unchanged and, therefore, any distribution or sale of AZM products is prohibited after September 30, 2012, except for purposes of proper disposal, reformulation, or export consistent with FIFRA section 17.
