New formaldehyde rules begin, will match California's requirements
from Woodworking Network
The Environmental Protection Agency is implementing its proposed technical amendments to the TSCA Title VI Formaldehyde Emissions Standards for Composite Wood Products rule. The rule is nearly identical to those set forward by the California Air Resources Board. The amendments require any seller, supplier, offeror, manufacturer or importer of composite wood products to undergo third-party certification before sale in the U.S. Composite wood product manufacturers also are required to establish and maintain a quality control program to ensure compliance with the standards. Companies must also provide third-party certifiers with the program's quality control manager's contact information.
