Finding of No Significant Impact

A food-contact notification (FCN No. 1017), submitted by Proviron Functional Chemicals, to provide for the safe use of ethylensulfonic acid, sodium salt, as a comonomer in the production of aqueous polymer dispersions, at a maximum content of 31.5 percent-by-weight, for use in the production of pressure-sensitive adhesives.

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 July 22, 2010, in the notification submitted by the notifier, and other information known to the agency.
