If OGC determines after reviewing the substantiations that some or all of the documents responsive to the FOIA request are not entitled to confidential treatment under 40 CFR part 2, and therefore should be released, EPA will provide notice of this determination by letter, prior to release, to businesses who have submitted the information, allowing such businesses 10 working days to respond, pursuant to 40 CFR 2.205(f).
