WASHINGTON - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is planning a virtual workshop for panel manufacturers hoping to obtain an exemption from formaldehyde emissions standards.
Held September 8 via teleconference, the workshop will focus on helping panel producers and laminated product makers certify composite wood products through third party certifiers. Those interested must register online before August 31.
The EPA hopes the conference will help it determine future guidance regarding these standards. It says that although the issue mainly concerns laminated product producers, it may also interest importers, distributors, and retailers.
