The National Formaldehyde Rule Starts Today!

The National Formaldehyde Rule Starts Today!

  • June 1, 2018
  • by Columbia Forest Products

The existing “CARB Rule” has been in place since 2009, covering composite wood panels used in the state of California. On June 1, 2018, a rule from the United States Environmental Protection Agency took effect, which essentially “nationalizes” the CARB Rule. It’s often referred to as “EPA TSCA Title VI.”

Here’s a link that compares the two regulations: https://www.arb.ca.gov/toxics/compwood/comparisontable.pdf

Beginning June 1, 2018 composite wood products that are sold, supplied, offered for sale, manufactured, or imported in the United States will need to be labeled as “CARB ATCM Phase II” or “TSCA Title VI Compliant.”

Columbia is ready to support our customers’ needs with the right compliant products – this section of our website features links to find out more about the rule, and how our channel partners and end users can comply with it: https://www.columbiaforestproducts.com/library/information/carb-regulation-information/
