Comments on Evaluation of Existing Regulations - EPA Import
Thank you for this opportunity to provide comments with respect to EPA’s consideration of regulations that may be appropriate for repeal, replacement, or modification in accordance with Executive Order 13777, “Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda” (Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OA2017-0190). These comments address a provision of the Formaldehyde Emissions Standards for Composite Wood Products, 40 C.F.R. Part 770, adopted under Title VI of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). These standards were published at 81 Fed. Reg. 89674 (Dec. 12, 2016). They are scheduled to take effect on May 22, 2017, following the expiration of the current regulatory freeze. One issue of particular concern is that relating to import certification, 40 C.F.R. § 770.30(d).
