EPA Publishes Final Formaldehyde Rule for Composite Wood
Sterling, VA, August 23, 2019-The EPA TSCA Title VI final rule for formaldehyde emissions for composite wood products has been published in the Federal Register and is now official, reports the Decorative Hardwoods Association.
“The rule was changed to address technical issues raised by stakeholders-including those raised by HPVA Laboratories (soon to be Capital Testing). The changes mean that EPA TSCA Title VI now aligns better with CARB requirements and will help streamline compliance programs.
“Composite wood products must still meet emission standards, be tested and certified, and sold with a label stating that they are TSCA Title VI certified. Finished goods containing composite wood products must still be sold with a label stating that they are TSCA Title VI compliant.”
