ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- IWPA’s World of Wood annual convention will take place April 3-5, 2019, at the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort in Tucson, Arizona. In addition to speakers and panels that will provide the latest market intelligence, regulatory developments, and global perspectives, the World of Wood Convention offers networking opportunities. More than 300 importers, U.S. manufacturers, exporters, wholesalers, offshore suppliers and service providers to the global wood products industry from nearly 30 countries gather for this annual event.

In recent years, the imported wood products industry has been focused on complying with state and federal regulations for formaldehyde emissions such as California’s CARB Phase 2 and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s TSCA Title VI.

Making sure that attendees understand what each rule entails and what they need to do to comply will be the focus of a session at the World of Wood convention titled “Prop 65 Hazard Awareness and EPA/CARB Formaldehyde Regulations: A Look at Compliance and What’s Next.” See http://www.iwpawood.org.
