Finding of No Significant Impact

A Premarket Notification (FCN No. 000048), submitted by Chevron Chemical Co., to provide for the safe use of poly (ethylene-methyl acrylate-cyclohexeneylmethyl acrylate) (CAS Reg. No. 223503-47-7) as a component of articles used in contact with dry food containing no surface fat or oil and as a component of multi-layer articles in contact with food. The multi-layer articles must be flexible films, rigid polypropylene containers, or containers made of paper or paperboard.

The Chemistry and Environmental Review Team and 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 finding is based on an environmental assessment prepared by the notifier.
