Formaldehyde Emission Standards for Composite Wood Products: Court Order; Compliance Date

Read the full Federal Register Notice.

On March 13, 2018, the United States District Court for the Northern District of California issued an order in the case of Sierra Club and A Community Voice-Louisiana vs. Scott Pruitt, which resulted in the compliance date for emission standards, recordkeeping, and labeling (i.e., the manufactured-by date or import-by date) becoming June 1, 2018, rather than December 12, 2018. This case involved the formaldehyde regulations for composite wood products under Title VI of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) and, specifically, a challenge to EPA’s extension to December 12, 2018 of the December 12, 2017 compliance date in a September 25, 2017 rule.
