EPA Issues PCWP ICR to U.S. Panel Producers
On October 6, EPA announced that the Plywood and Composite Wood Panel (PCWP) Information Collection Request (ICR)/survey was sent to 391 facilities via certified mail. Members should check the ICR spreadsheet to ensure address accuracy (see link below).
The ICR will collect information essential to the Risk and Technology Review required for PCWP MACT under the Clean Air Act. EPA has provided a fact sheet with basic information about the survey, and established a website for respondents to review and download survey response documents. EPA has established a PCWP hotline to address stakeholder questions and will communicate with respondents via email.
EPA will host a webinar in late October to review the ICR survey spreadsheet. Additionally, the American Wood Council (AWC), along with NCASI, will offer an interactive webinar to assist plants with responding to the survey. CPA will announce dates for both webinars once available. See ICR Spreadsheet, ICR Fact Sheet and PCWP ICR. More Info: Gary Heroux
