CARB Accepts EPA TSCA Title VI Regulation as Compliant

October 23, 2017

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) posted an outreach guidance Sept. 29 about the relationship between the CARB formaldehyde rule and the EPA formaldehyde rule, indicating that manufacturers can use a statement such as “TSCA Title VI compliant” to comply with the CARB rule.

“CARB will accept products labeled as being compliant with the U.S. EPA TSCA Title VI regulation as being compliant with CARB’s formaldehyde emission standards, because the standards are identical,” CARB wrote. CARB staff plans to provide additional guidance in the future regarding how the U.S. EPA and CARB regulations interact, according to the document.
