Finding of No Significant Impact

A premarket notification (FCN No. 000060), submitted by GE Specialty Chemicals Corporation, for the safe use of bis(hydrogenated rape-oil alkyl) methyl, N-oxides for use as an antioxidant in polypropylene for single as well as repeated use applications in contact with all food types.

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 dated April 18, 2000, prepared by the notifier.
