KCMA CERTIFICATIONS: 45+ YEARS OF QUALITY

In an effort to provide KCMA members an overview of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (“EPA”) Formaldehyde Emission Standards for Composite Wood Products (“Final Rule”), KCMA worked with their legal counsel to compile a brief bullet point memorandum exclusive to KCMA Members (if you are a member, please log-into the members-only section of the website to obtain a copy).

In summary, the Final Rule contains several provisions that are favorable to producers of laminated products.  These include the following points:

  • Extending the compliance date for testing and certifying laminated products to seven years from the publication date of the Final Rule.
  • Limiting testing and certifying requirements to only those laminated products that use wood or woody grass veneers and certain glue lines.
  • Exempting laminated products from testing and certification requirements where no- added formaldehyde and phenol-formaldehyde resins are used to attach a veneer.
  • Allowing reduced testing and certification requirements for manufacturers of composite wood products that use no-added formaldehyde-based resins or ultra low- emitting formaldehyde resins.
