Finding of No Significant Impact

A food contact notification (FCN No. 463), submitted by General Electric Company, to provide for the safe use of 1,3-benzenedicarbonyl dichloride, polymer with 1,4-benzenedicarbonyl dichloride, 1,3-benzenediol, carbonic dichloride and 4,4'-(1-methylethylidene) bisphenol, 4-(1-methyl-1-phenylethyl)phenyl ester used neat or in blends with polycarbonate resins, in articles or components of articles intended for single and repeat-use food contact applications

 

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 August 9, 2004.
