EPA recognizes ICC-ES as a third-party certifier

ICC-ES can now provide certification services under the Formaldehyde Emission Standards for Composite Wood Products Rule

     BREA, CALIF. – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized the International Code Council Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) as a Third-Party Certifier under the Formaldehyde Emission Standards for Composite Wood Products Rule.
     ICC-ES, the industry leader in building product evaluation and certification, is one of only 20 providers worldwide recognized by the EPA to test that composite wood products sold, supplied, offered for sale, imported to or manufactured in the U.S. are compliant with the formaldehyde emission standards found in the rule. Composite wood products include hardwood plywood, particleboard, medium-density fiberboard (MDF) and thin MDF.
     “We are pleased to be one of the few organizations recognized by the EPA to provide these certifications,” said ICC-ES President Shahin Moinian, P.E. “We have been providing exceptional building product certifications to our clients for decades, and this achievement will allow us to expand our service offerings and add more value and options to our clients.” For the full list of providers and for more information about the formaldehyde emission standard, click here.
