Finding of No Significant Impact

A Premarket Notification (FCN No. 000101), submitted by DuPont Dow Elastomers L.L.C., to provide for perfluorocarbon cured elastomers produced by polymerizing perfluoro(methyl vinyl ether) with tetrafluoroethylene and perfluoro(8-cyano-5-methyl-3,6-dioxa-1-octene), followed by curing with trimethylallyl isocyanurate and/or triallyl isocyanurate, and with 2,5-dimethyl-2,5-di(t-butylperoxy) hexane used in the fabrication of articles intended for repeated use in contact with food.

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 was based on an environmental assessment, dated August 18, 2000, prepared by the notifier.
