compwood -- Extension of Sell Through Dates

Posted: 31 May 2011 16:11:46
This note is to inform you that the California Air Resources
Board (ARB) is delaying the enforcement of two sell-through dates
that affect distributors, importers, fabricators, and retailers
of finished goods made with Phase 1 hardwood plywood - veneer
core (HWPW-VC), and distributors of Phase 1 particleboard (PB)
and medium density fiberboard (MDF) panels. Regulatory Advisory
11-01 describes these extensions and is posted to our composite
wood products website at: 

The purpose of this extension is to address excess inventories
within California of finished goods made with Phase 1 hardwood
plywood veneer core, as well as Phase 1 PB and Phase 1 MDF
inventories at the distributor level.  These excess inventories
are a result of the economic downturn, which has led to slow
sales across many business sectors.  

In April 2007, the Airborne Toxic Control Measure to Reduce
Formaldehyde Emissions from Composite Wood Products was approved
by the Air Resources Board.  This airborne toxic control measure
establishes formaldehyde emission standards for composite wood
products including, PB, MDF, thin MDF (thickness 8 millimeters or
less) HWPW-VC and hardwood plywood with a composite core.  The
airborne toxic control measure also applies to finished goods
that are made from composite wood products.  For more information
regarding this airborne toxic control measure, visit us, at
