CARB Technical Assistance

California Air Resource Board (CARB) regulations place a responsibility on fabricators, distributors, importers and retailers to ensure that levels of formaldehyde emission from combined wood products meet expectations. This can be a daunting task, as businesses often are not equipped to carry out the requisite tests to show that their materials or products are safe.

SGS CARB technical assistance services aim to help composite wood manufacturers to achieve CARB ATCM Certification. They can be customized according to your requirements and may include:

  1. Gap Assessment Service (to identify the gap to achieve CARB ATCM Certification through an on-site visit)
  2. In-house Lab set up service (to help manufacturers set up an acceptable in-house laboratory per CARB ATCM certification requirements)
  3. Quality Control System Set up Service (to help manufacturers set up an acceptable quality control system per CARB ATCM certification requirements)

Our expert consultants can advise on other technical aspects of the accreditation process, such as correct labeling of your products and creating an appropriate record-keeping system.

SGS is a world leader in testing services, meeting the technical needs of businesses in a wide range of industries. When you put your trust in our consultants to help you meet US wood products regulations, you are placing your trust in a tried-and-tested supplier with a reputation for helping clients achieve certification as smoothly as possible so they can get their products to market quickly.
