compwood -- Federal Register Notice of U.S. EPA’s Proposed Regulations

Posted: 17 Jun 2013 14:36:52
The purpose of this list server notice is to inform you that the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (U.S. EPA) two proposed
regulations to reduce exposures to formaldehyde emissions from
composite wood products have been published in the Federal
Register and are available for review and public comment. The
proposed regulations may be viewed at:
(third party certification framework) and
(general rule).

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.
