EPA Announces Hearing on Formaldehyde Regulation Amongst Others
The EPA Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention announced last week that it will hold a hearing on May 1 to solicit input on regulations promulgated under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), including the formaldehyde emissions in composite wood regulation known as TSCA Title VI. The hearing is intended to implement President Trump’s Executive Order 13777, which calls on all federal agencies to evaluate existing regulations and to identify those that should be “repealed, replaced or modified” because they are too burdensome. Interested stakeholders can also file written comments by May 15.
CPA will provide both oral testimony and written comments in support of TSCA Title VI, citing specifically the regulation’s importance in ensuring a level playing field for U.S. manufacturers. Members may participate in person or remotely via teleconference. See Executive Order 13777 and EPA Announcement. More Info: Jackson Morrill
