compwood -- Discussion Session on August 1, 2013 to Evaluate U.S. EPA’s Proposed Rule and ARB’s Composite Wood Products ATCM Posted: 01 Jul 2013 15:05:42
The Air Resources Board (ARB) staff invites you to participate in a discussion session to discuss the differences between ARB’s Airborne Toxic Control Measure to Reduce Formaldehyde Emissions from Composite Wood Products (Composite Wood Products ATCM) and proposed United States Environmental Protection Agency’s (U.S. EPA) regulations. We welcome your participation in this upcoming discussion session. The discussion session will be held at the following time and location: Date: August 1, 2013 Time: 9:30 am to 4:00 p.m. (PDT) Location: Coastal Hearing Room Address: Cal/EPA Headquarters Building 1001 “I” Street, 2nd Floor Sacramento, California 95814 An agenda and any discussion session handouts and materials will be posted as they become available and will be posted on the Composite Wood Products ATCM website at the following link: http://www.arb.ca.gov/toxics/compwood/compwood.htm. 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.
