Finding of No Significant Impact

A Premarket Notification (FCN No. 000102), submitted by Sumitomo Chemical Company for use of phenol,2-(1,1-dimethylethyl)-6-methyl-4-[3-[[2,4,8,10-tetrakis(1,1-dimethylethyl)dibenzo[d,f][1,3,2]dioxaphosphepin-6-yl]oxy]propyl] as an antioxidant and/or stabilizer for olefin polymers intended for 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 is based on information submitted by the petitioner in an environmental assessment.
