Finding of No Significant Impact

A food contact notification (FCN No. 444), submitted by E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company, Inc., to provide for the safe use of poly(isophthaloyl chloride/m-phenylenediamine) (MPDI) as a component of microwave susceptor base aramid paper having a maximum basis weight of 2.70 oz/yd2.

 

 

 

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 June 1, 2004.
