Overview of the EPA formaldehyde regulation webinar
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Title VI, which requires producers of hardwood plywood, particle board, medium density fiberboard, and thin medium density fiberboard sold into the United States to reduce exposure to formaldehyde emissions from those wood products produced domestically or imported into the United States. EPA worked with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to help ensure the final national rule was consistent with California’s requirements for similar composite wood products. Now, producers and importers must use an EPA recognized Third Party Certifier and label products as compliant with the regulation.
This must-watch webinar explains how to comply with TSCA Title VI requirements for composite wood products.
Scott Steady, an expert on indoor air quality at UL, explains EPA legislation and how it will affect your business.
