Attached is the Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) that we have prepared for the above cited PMN submission. The Environmental Assessment (EA) dated April 30, 1999 was prepared by the notifier in accordance with previous 21 CFR 25.31 a(b)(1). When this notification becomes effective, the EA and FONSI should be made available to the public. Please let us know if there is any change in the identity or use of the food contact substance that would be inconsistent with the identity and use described in the FONSI.

Finding of No Significant Impact

A Premarket Notification (FCN No. 000032), submitted by BASF Corporation, to provide for the safe use of alpha-(dinonylphenyl)-omega-hydroxypoly(oxy-1,2-ethanediyl), containing 21 moles of ethylene oxide per mole of dinonylphenyl as a component in coatings for paper and paperboard at levels not to exceed 0.05% by weight of finished coatings.

The Environmental Review Team has determined that allowing this notification to become effective will not significantly affect the quality of the human environment and therefore will not require the preparation of an environmental impact statement. This action was originally requested in a threshold of regulation exemption request (TOR No. 210). The food contact use requested in the notification is identical to the use requested in TOR No. 210. Therefore, the information presented in the environmental assessment for TOR No. 210 is applicable to this notification, and this Finding of No Significant Impact is based on that information.
