The ACE CATAIR EPA Supplemental Guidelines have been updated to accommodate new TSCA certification requirements for composite wood products set forth in EPA’s TSCA Title VI Formaldehyde Emission Standards for Composite Wood Products (81 FR 89674). The changes are on pages 157-159, and address sample message sets, allowable disclaim codes, and the TSCA certification that should be filed for these commodities.

There are approximately 450 additional HTS codes for composite wood products that will be flagged with an EP7 (TSCA certification ‘may be required’ to be filed) code. This flagging will begin in the Certification (CERT) environment no earlier than February 22, 2019. The flagging will begin in Production (PROD) starting March 22, 2019.
