compwood -- U.S. EPA Releases Proposed Regulations to Reduce Exposures to Formaldehyde Emissions from Composite Wood Products Posted: 31 May 2013 15:17:12
The purpose of this list server notice is to inform you that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) has released two proposed regulations to reduce exposures to formaldehyde emissions from composite wood products. Pre–publication version of both rules may be viewed by visiting U.S. EPA’s website at: http://www.epa.gov/oppt/chemtest/formaldehyde/. The federal Formaldehyde Standards for Composite Wood Products Act (the “Act”), signed into law in July 2010, required U.S. EPA to develop a new federal regulation to implement the provisions of the Act. The Act mandated the same formaldehyde emission standards, as well as other major regulatory elements, contained in California’s “Airborne Toxic Control Measure To Reduce Formaldehyde Emissions From Composite Wood Products” (the “ATCM”). California’s ATCM remains fully in effect. Later this year, CARB staff plans to prepare amendments to the ATCM to clarify and refine certain aspects of the ATCM, and to align with the U.S. EPA regulation where practical.
