Finding of No Significant Impact

A Premarket Notification (FCN No. 000080), submitted by Schenectady International, Inc., to provide for the safe use of 2, 6-di-tert-butyl-4-sec-butylphenol (CAS Reg. No. 17540-75-9) as an antioxidant in plasticized vinyl chloride homo- and copolymers (PVC) used in contact with all types of food under Conditions of Use C through G as set forth in 21 CFR 176.170(c), Table 2.

The Chemistry and 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 an environmental assessment prepared by the notifier.
