Finding of No Significant Impact

 

A food contact notification (FCN No. 863), submitted by Ecolab, Inc., to provide for the safe use of Alcohols, C12 - C16 ethoxylated propoxylated, as a surfactant component of rinse-aid products in commercial dishwashing machines/applications in contact with all food types and under all Conditions of Use.

The Environmental Review Team 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 in the notification, including an environmental assessment, dated November 2008, submitted by the notifier and other information known to the agency.
