Finding of No Significant Impact


Finding of No Significant Impact

A food-contact notification (FCN No. 1008), submitted by Toyobo Co., Ltd., to provide for the safe use of cyclohexamine as a terminating group of the carboxyl end of nylon 6 in the production of films for single-use packaging for all types of food under conditions of use A through H.

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, including an environmental assessment, dated April 16, 2010, in the notification submitted by the notifier, and other information known to the agency.
