In 2008, the ARB adopted the Composite Wood Products ATCM to
reduce formaldehyde emissions from composite wood product panels
and from finished goods that contain composite wood products
(title 17, California Code of Regulations, sections
93120-93120.12).  The ATCM established formaldehyde emission
standards for hardwood plywood-veneer core (HWPW-VC), hardwood
plywood-composite core (HWPW-CC), particleboard (PB), medium
density fiberboard (MDF), thin medium density fiberboard (tMDF),
and requirements for furniture and other finished products made
with composite wood products.  The ATCM applies to panels and
finished goods that are sold, supplied, offered for sale, used,
or manufactured for sale in California.  Implementation of the
Composite Wood Products ATCM is helping to reduce the public’s
exposure to formaldehyde, which has been identified as a toxic
air contaminant.  For more information regarding this ATCM,
please see: http://www.arb.ca.gov/toxics/compwood/compwood.htm.
