we have filed a food additive petition (FAP 2283) submitted by Novus

Food Additives Permitted in Feed and Drinking Water of Animals (21 CFR 
part 573) to provide for the safe use of ethoxyquin in rendered fats 
and oils used in animal feed.
    We are reviewing the potential environmental impact of this 
petition. To encourage public participation consistent with regulations 
issued under the National Environmental Policy Act (40 CFR 1501.4(b)), 
we are placing the environmental assessment submitted with the petition 
that is the subject of this notice on public display at the Division of 
Dockets Management (see DATES and ADDRESSES) for public review and 
comment.
    Interested persons may submit either electronic comments regarding 
this document to http://www.regulations.gov or written comments to the 
Division of Dockets Management (see ADDRESSES). It is only necessary to 
send one set of comments. Identify comments with the docket number

display, in the Division of Dockets Management and at http://www.regulations.gov, any amendments to, or comments on, the 
petitioner's environmental assessment without further announcement in 
the Federal Register. If, based on our review, we find that an 
environmental impact statement is not required, and this petition

our finding of no significant impact and the evidence supporting that 
finding with the regulation in the Federal Register in accordance with 
21 CFR 25.51(b).
