EU Sets New Limits For Formaldehyde

In August 2026, a new European Commission regulation will reduce the limit for formaldehyde emissions from furniture and wood-based products to 0.062 mg/m3, about 0.07 ppm. The new standards are higher than current U.S. standards for hardwood plywood, set at 0.05 ppm, but lower than those for particleboard and MDF. DHA learned that European regulators will develop guidance to make it easier for U.S.-based manufacturers to comply.
