Implementing CARB Phase 2 Emission Standard
Friday, 16 November 2012 19:23

We are excited to implement the CARB Phase 2 emission standard on all domestically made products.  In April 2007, the California Air Resources Board (CARB), a department of the California Environmental Protection Agency, voted to implement new limits for formaldehyde emitted from composite wood panels. These new limits will be implemented in two phases starting January 1, 2009. When the final limits are fully in place by 2012, the regulation will establish the toughest production standard in the world for formaldehyde emissions from composite wood panels.
