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: http://www.arb.ca.gov/toxics/compwood/outreach/11_01_advisory.pdf. 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.
