DHA Members, TSCA Title VI Formaldehyde Compliant


Decorative Hardwoods Association Members Are TSCA Title VI Compliant

Sterling, VA, June 1, 2018: As of June 1, 2018, all regulated composite wood products must be TSCA Title VI compliant and meet all the of EPA’s regulatory requirements. Members of the Decorative Hardwoods Association® representing over 95% of North American hardwood plywood producers are TSCA Title VI compliant and offer certified compliant products.

“We’re proud to announce that all of our members are TSCA Title VI compliant and most are classified as exempt because emission levels are so low. 65% of our members manufacture with formaldehyde-free adhesives,” said Kip Howlett, president of the Decorative Hardwoods Association®.

For years, DHA® members have been committed to making and selling products with either no added formaldehyde or with low, harmless emission levels. “Our members have always held themselves to a higher standard—your standard. You can be confident that the products our members make and sell are TSCA Title VI compliant and meet the strictest standards for product safety,” said Howlett.

“You can’t say the same for all imports of composite wood or finished goods made of those composite woods. If you’re not 100% confident that a product is TSCA Title VI compliant, don’t buy it. Some imports are notorious for breaking the rules to keep prices low and create unfair market advantages. There’s no need to put you or your family at risk.”
