The Air Resources Board staff invites you to participate in a
public workshop to continue discussion on proposed amendments to

regulatory amendments to the ATCM that focus on laminated
products, improving the ATCM and on aligning the ATCM with

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. For additional
