Final rule.


The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or we) is amending the food additive regulations to no longer provide for the use of 25 plasticizers in various food contact applications because these uses have been abandoned.

This rule is effective May 20, 2022. See section VIII for further information on the filing of objections. Submit either electronic or written objections and requests for a hearing on the final rule by June 21, 2022.


You may submit objections and requests for a hearing as follows. Please note that late, untimely filed objections will not be considered. Electronic objections must be submitted on or before June 21, 2022. The electronic filing system will accept comments until 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time at the end of June 21, 2022. Objections received by mail/hand delivery/courier (for written/paper submissions) will be considered timely if they are postmarked or the delivery service acceptance receipt is on or before that date.
