Formaldehyde Rule court date postponed

From the Woodworking Network:


WASHINGTON, DC – The federal district court hearing on motions challenging EPA’s authority to extend the Formaldehyde Rule compliance deadlines has been postponed until Jan. 26.  Originally scheduled for Jan. 12, the postponement is due to scheduling conflicts for the government’s counsel.

The lawsuit, filed Oct. 31, 2017, by the Sierra Club and A Community Voice-Louisiana, which is represented by Earthjustice, claims EPA acted “arbitrarily, capriciously” and without authority when it granted panel producers a one-year extension for compliance to TSCA Title VI, also known as the Formaldehyde Emission Standards for Composite Wood Products. The original compliance date was Dec. 12, 2017.
