Product Emissions

CPA has been at the forefront of developing standards for formaldehyde emissions and have actively supported national regulations in the U.S., reflecting the North American industry’s strong commitment to product stewardship.

The CPA advocated in support of both the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) Airborne Toxic Control Measure and U.S. EPA Formaldehyde Emissions Regulation (TSCA Title VI), the two chief regulations affecting product emissions in the U.S. These have effectively become global standards and are widely known as the most stringent in the world today.      

The association also sponsors all ANSI standards related to particleboard, MDF, hardboard and engineered wood siding & trim, as well as CPA’s Eco-Certified CompositeTM sustainability standard and certification program, all of which address product emissions and impose stringent and verifiable requirements.
