EPA/OCSPP RIN: 2070-AJ44 Publication ID: Spring 2013 
Title: Formaldehyde; Third-Party Certification Framework for the Formaldehyde Standards for Composite Wood Products 
Abstract: On July 7, 2010, the Formaldehyde Standards for Composite Wood Products Act was enacted. This law amends Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) to establish specific formaldehyde emission limits for hardwood plywood, particleboard, and medium-density fiberboard, which are identical to the California emission limits for these products. The law further requires EPA to promulgate implementing regulations and this rulemaking includes provisions related to third-party testing and certification. EPA intends to propose a third-party certification program that will help ensure compliance with the emissions standards. A separate Regulatory Agenda entry (RIN 2070-AJ92) covers the other regulations to implement the statutory formaldehyde emission standards for hardwood plywood, medium-density fiberboard, and particleboard sold, supplied, offered for sale, or manufactured (including imported) in the United States.
