EPA extends formaldehyde compliance dates

The Environmental Protection Agency recently published a direct final rule to extend the compliance date for formaldehyde emission standards for composite wood products to March 22, 2018.

The deadline for provisions for import certification is now March 22, 2019. While laminated product producer provisions were extended until March 22, 2024, laminated product producers must comply with applicable fabricator provisions beginning March 22, 2018.

In addition, the EPA plans to allow early labeling of compliant products and to update voluntary consensus standards.
