Finding of No Significant Impact

A premarket notification (FCN No. 103), submitted by Ticona, to provide for the safe use of copolymers produced by the polymerization of 6-hydroxy-2-naphthoic acid with one or more of the following monomers: 4-hydroxybenzoic acid; 4,4'-biphenol; N-(4-hydroxyphenyl)acetamide; terephthalic acid; resorcinol; and isophthalic acid for the production of films and sheets used in the fabrication of food-packagin materials, nut not including its use in the manufacture of bottles intended for food-contact applications.

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 the notifier's environmental assessment dated October 13, 2000.
