Finding of No Significant Impact
A Premarket Notification (FCN No. 000078), submitted by Lubrizol, to provide for the safe use of decanedioic acid (sebacic acid, CAS Registry No. 111-20-6) when used at levels not to exceed 0.5% as an anti-wear agent in lubricants with incidental food contact
The Chemistry and 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 petitioner.
