Finding of No Significant Impact

A premarket notification (FCN No. 141) submitted by Gordon Burns and Robert M. Ellsworth, to provide for the safe use of the cross-linked terpolymer of 1-vinylimidazole, 1-vinylpyrrolidone and 1,3-divinylimidazolidinone, which is also known as polyvinylimidazol, as a component of filter sheets used in the removal of metals and sulfides from alcoholic beverages.

The Environmental Group 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 notifier in an environmental assessment, dated December 15, 2000.
