Finding of No Significant Impact

A food contact notification (FCN No. 449), submitted by The Dow Chemical, to provide for the safe use of propylene/ethylene copolymers containing up to 16 weight percent polymer units derived from ethylene as food-contact articles or components of food-contact articles used in contact with all foods under Conditions of Use A through H, as described in Table 2 of 21 CFR 176.170(c).

 

 

 

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 15, 2004.
