Joint Trade Association Letter on Formaldehyde Rule
We appreciate and thank the Environmental Protection Agency for taking a close look at recently promulgated regulations. While we are pleased in particular that EPA is taking time to review and has therefore delayed the effective date of the Formaldehyde Emissions Standards for Composite Wood Products Final Rule, 81. Fed. Reg. 889674 (Dec. 12, 2017) and 82 Fed. Reg. 14324 (Mar. 20, 2016), we are deeply concerned that if the final rule goes into effect in its current form this delay in the effective date - without also amending all the internal implementation dates - will have an adverse effect on regulated industries.
