Two federal agencies are offering webinars to explain new requirements for imported composite wood products and component parts and finished goods that contain formaldehyde.
The one-hour webinars are scheduled for 2 p.m. Eastern time on Feb. 26 and March 6. Participants should register for the Feb. 26 webinar at here and for the March 6 webinar here. They are offered by the Environmental Protection Agency and Customs and Border Protection.
One portion of the webinar will discuss general rule requirements for importers of regulated composite wood products and component parts/finished goods, for which the compliance date began on June 1, 2018. Another portion of the webinar will discuss the TSCA Section 13 import certification requirements, which go into effect on March 22. These two webinars are intended for importers, import brokers and other interested TSCA Title VI regulated stakeholders who may import products into the customs territory of the U.S. that are, or contain, TSCA Title VI regulated composite wood products. The webinars will also include time for questions and answers at the end of the presentation with staff from the EPA and Customs and Border Protection.
The final rule and guidance materials can be found here. If you have any questions about the formaldehyde emission standards for composite wood products regulatory program, please contact Todd Coleman at firstname.lastname@example.org or (202) 564-1208.
