Finding of No Significant Impact

A food contact notification (FCN No. 338), submitted by DuPont Chemical Solutions Enterprise, to provide for the safe use of copolymers of 2-perfluoroalkylethyl acrylate, 2-N,N-diethylaminoethyl methacrylate, and glycidyl methacrylate as an oil and grease resistant treatment for paper and paperboard intended for food-contact use.

 

 

The Environmental Review 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 (EA) dated April 15, 2003, and on information we included in supplements to the EAs of FCN 206 and FCN 311. These supplements are incorporated herein by reference.
