TSCA Title VI – Formaldehyde Emissions
The Law – Background
In 2010, Congress passed the Formaldehyde Emission Standards for Composite Wood Products Act establishing, for the first time, emission standards for formaldehyde from composite wood products and adding Title VI to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). In the Act, Congress directed EPA to publish a final rule to reduce exposure to formaldehyde emissions from certain wood products produced domestically or imported into the United States. EPA published that rule on December 12, 2016 (81 Fed. Reg. 89674). The final rule includes formaldehyde emission standards applicable to hardwood plywood, medium density fiberboard and particleboard, and finished goods containing these products.
The Legal Requirements - Overview
The final rule includes provisions on: (1) labeling, (2) chain of custody requirements, (3) sell-through provisions, (4) ultra low-emitting formaldehyde resins, (5) no-added formaldehyde-based resins, (6) finished goods, (7) third-party testing and certifications, (8) auditing and reporting of third-party certifiers, (9) record-keeping, (10) enforcement, (11) laminated products and (12) exceptions from regulatory requirements for products and components containing de minimis amounts of composite wood products.
As of March 22, 2019, composite wood products must be labeled as TSCA Title VI compliant. These products include: hardwood plywood, medium-density fiberboard, and particleboard, as well as household and other finished goods containing these products. Laminated products not exempted from the definition of hardwood plywood must be tested and certified as meeting the hardwood plywood formaldehyde emission standard beginning March 22, 2024.

California Proposition 65
California enacted the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act in 1986; commonly known as Proposition 65 ("Prop 65"). Entities selling products in the State of California must comply with Prop 65. Wausau Supply does not produce or fabricate products in the State of California, but because some of our products are sold to consumers in California, we provide information on Proposition 65 and the warnings required under Prop 65.
Wausau Supply is committed to compliance with Prop 65 and have added a warning to the bottom of each invoice to ensure continued awareness.
Due to the nature of your business and this requirement, you and your business may also be obligated to comply with Prop 65 warning requirements. Under Prop 65, manufacturers, distributors and retailers making sales to customers in California are required to give a “clear and reasonable warning” for products containing one or more chemicals on the Prop 65 chemical list. To fully comply with possible Prop 65 requirements, Wausau Supply sends a Prop 65 notification letter and agreement page annually to companies Wausau sells its products to and requests that the companies acknowledge their obligations under the law.
