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:

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.
