In the United States (US) formaldehyde emissions from composite wood products are governed by the Formaldehyde Standards for Composite Wood Products Act, which was signed into law in 2010. It establishes two types of laminated product manufacturers and requires composite wood panels to be tested to ensure compliance with formaldehyde emission standards under TSCA Title VI and certified by an EPA-TSCA Title VI TPC. In this white paper we explore the regulations and their requirements, the products affected, labeling requirements and the role of economic operators, as well as the implementation and compliance timeline.
