Formaldehyde Emission Standard for Composite Wood Products
Does your company produce, or import, any products with manufactured wood components? (Think adjustable bases or furniture pieces among other products.) If so, then you should become familiar with the Environmental Protection Agency’s final rule regarding formaldehyde emissions associated with manufactured wood such as particle board, plywood and the like. New label obligations as well as compliance with emissions standards become effective in 2017, meaning that each company needs to carefully consult with its wood suppliers and assess very soon whether a redesign of its products is necessary. Moreover, record-keeping requirements will soon be imposed upon each company in the stream of commerce. CONTACT Ms. Mattiace for additional information at 1-877-481-0734.
