compwood -- Composite Wood Products ATCM Public Workshop on November 20, 2013 Posted: 24 Oct 2013 14:03:12
The Air Resources Board staff invites you to participate in a public workshop to continue discussion on proposed amendments to the Composite Wood Products Airborne Toxic Control Measure (ATCM). At the workshop, ARB staff will discuss proposed regulatory amendments to the ATCM that focus on laminated products, improving the ATCM and on aligning the ATCM with proposed United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) regulations to the extent practicable. We welcome your participation in this workshop. The workshop will be held at the following time and location: Date: November 20, 2013 Time: 9:30 am to 2:00 p.m. (Pacific Time) Location: Byron Sher Auditorium Address: Cal/EPA Headquarters Building 1001 “I” Street, 2nd Floor Sacramento, California 95814 The workshop notice and preliminary agenda can be found at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/toxics/compwood/notice102313.pdf Workshop documents and presentations 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. The California ATCM was adopted by the ARB in 2008. The ATCM to Reduce Formaldehyde Emissions from Composite Wood Products establishes formaldehyde emission standards for composite wood products, including hardwood plywood-veneer core (HWPW-VC), hardwood plywood-composite core (HWPW-CC), particleboard (PB), medium density fiberboard (MDF), and thin MDF. The ATCM also applies to finished goods that are 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. Businesses required to comply with the ATCM are: manufacturers, distributors, importers, fabricators, and retailers of composite wood products and finished goods that contain these products. Implementation of the ATCM is well underway, and the program is firmly established. Both the Phase 1 and Phase 2 formaldehyde emission standards have been implemented. 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.
