GREENSBORO, N.C.—Womble Carlyle attorneys Michael Sullivan and Christa Burger will be speaking at the American Home Furnishings Alliance (AHFA) Formaldehyde Rule Workshop.
In July, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued its final rule to regulate formaldehyde emissions from composite wood products used as component parts in finished goods sold in the United States. The rule, which added Title VI to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), impacts both domestic and imported finished goods. Sullivan and Burger will be among the industry leaders discussing ways to help companies navigate the recently released compliance rules for the federal formaldehyde emissions standard.
The workshop is presented in partnership with the International Wood Products Association (IWPA) and the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association (KCMA). It takes place Jan. 18th-19th in Greensboro.
