Canada Proposes Composite Wood Formaldehyde Emissions Regulation

In the Friday, June 28, 2019 edition of the Canada Gazette, the Canadian government published its proposed Formaldehyde Emissions from Composite Wood Products Regulations for public comment.  The stated objectives of the Regulations are (1) to reduce potential health risks by putting limits on allowable formaldehyde emissions from composite wood products and (2) to align with similar requirements in the United States in order to create a level playing field for Canadian, American and international businesses.  While the scope of regulated product types and emission limits are identical to U.S. EPA TSCA Title VI regulation, the two regulations have a number of differing requirements.  CPA will be reviewing the proposed regulation and providing analysis to members in the near future in preparation for developing comments.  The deadline to submit comments is September 11, 2019.  See Proposed Regulations.  More Info: Gary Heroux
