Finding of No Significant Impact

A food-contact notification (FCN No. 1100), submitted E. I. duPont de Nemours and Company, Inc., to provide for the safe use of titanium dioxides treated with fluoride modified alumina as a pigment in food-contact articles.

The Office of Food Additive Safety 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 28, 2011, in the notification submitted by the notifier, and other information known to the agency.
