CARB Phase 2 Compliant Materials
The State of California in conjunction with the California Air Resources Board has established emissions controls to limit the formaldehyde exposure due to composite wood products . In January 2011, phase 2 of the emissions controls initiatives rolled out. Composite wood products manufactured, distributed and fabricated in California must now be CARB Phase 2 certified.
