Finding of No Significant Impact

A food contact notification (FCN No. 355), submitted by E.I. duPont de Nemours and Company, to provide for the safe use of 1,3-benzenedicarboxylic acid, 5-sulfo-,1,3-dimethyl ester, sodium salt, polymer with dimethyl 1,4-benzenedicarboxylate, dimethyl pentanedioate, poly(ethylene glycol), and 1,2-ethanediol as a coating and as a film.

 

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 dated July 10, 2003.
