作为美国自愿性标准化体系的协调机构,美国国家标准协会(ANSI)为美国环境保护署(EPA)的复合木制品甲醛排放产品认证项目启动了一个试点认证计划。ANSI在2017年8月28日(周一)到2017年10月13日(周五)之间接受项目申请。

今年,EPA批准ANSI为认证机构(AB),在复合木制品甲醛排放标准的指导下提供认证服务,旨在减少国内生产或进口的某些木材产品的甲醛排放。在2017年2月的联邦公告中发布了最终规章,包括对在美国生产(包括进口)、供应、销售的硬木胶合板、中密度纤维板、刨花板以及含此类成分产品的甲醛排放规定。该规章还为硬木胶合板、中密度纤维板和刨花板建立了第三方认证方案,包括第三方认证机构(TPCs)的认证程序和对认证机构的总体要求。

希望加入ANSI甲醛试点项目的申请者必须遵守《ANSI-Policy-PRO-PL-102》、《产品认证项目操作手册》和最终版《复合木制品甲醛标准条例》中规定的要求和流程。

试点项目的步骤如下:

 

•       进行现场评定,确定第三方认证机构是否符合ISO/IEC17065:2012(E)的要求和EPA的相关法规。

•       审查第三方认证机构:

1.   检验甲醛排放测试

2.   检验甲醛质量控制测试

3.   评估面板供应商的品控及其质量控制程序/人员/手册

4.   第三方认证机构实验室的认证资格

5.   若有用于建立ASTM E133-10和ASTM D6007-02之间相关性的手段,或其他40 CFR section 700.20允许的测试方法,则对它们进行评估

•       评估样品的选择和处理流程,以及面板制造商质量控制测试中的装运流程

 

若想获取甲醛试点认证方案的申请表,请联系ANSI项目及流程认证高级总监雷纳尔多·菲格雷多(rfigueir@ansi.org; 202.331.3611),或ANSI产品资质认证项目协调官伊丽莎白·奥克图伽(EOkutuga@ansi.org; 202.331.3627)。

ANSI Launches Pilot Accreditation Program for EPA Title VI Formaldehyde Emissions Certification Program for Wood Composite Products

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI), coordinator of the U.S. voluntary standardization system, has initiated a Pilot Accreditation Program for Certification Bodies for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Title VI Formaldehyde Emissions Product Accreditation Certification Program. ANSI is accepting applications for the program from Monday, August 28, 2017, through Friday, October 13, 2017.

This year, the EPA approved ANSI as an accreditation body (AB) to provide accreditation services under its Formaldehyde Emissions Standards for Composite Wood Products rule, intended to reduce exposure to formaldehyde emissions from certain wood products produced domestically or imported into the United States. The final rule, published in a February 2017 Federal Register notice, includes formaldehyde emission standards applicable to hardwood plywood, medium-density fiberboard, and particleboard, and finished goods containing these products, that are sold, supplied, offered for sale, or manufactured (including imported) in the United States.

The rule also establishes a third-party certification program for hardwood plywood, medium-density fiberboard, and particleboard, and includes procedures for the accreditation of third-party certifiers (TPCs) and general requirements for accreditation bodies and TPCs.

Potential applicants seeking to join the ANSI Formaldehyde Pilot Program must comply with the requirements and processes found in the ANSI-Policy-PRO-PL-102, Manual of Operations for Accreditation of Product Certification Programs, as well as the final rule to implement the Formaldehyde Standards for Composite Wood Products Act.

The steps in the Pilot Program include:

• An on-site assessment to determine whether the TPC meets the requirements of ISO/IEC 17065:2012 (E) and the EPA regulations

• A review of how the TPC:

1. Verifies formaldehyde emissions tests

2. Verifies formaldehyde quality control tests

3. Evaluates the panel producer's quality assurance quality control processes/personnel/manual

4. Reviews the accreditation credentials of the TPC laboratory

5. Evaluates the approach used for establishing correlation between ASTM E133-10 and ASTM D6007-02, if used, or other allowable test methods under 40 CFR section 770.20

• Evaluates the process for sample selection, handling, and shipping procedures for panel producer quality control testing

To obtain an application for the Formaldehyde Pilot Accreditation Program, please contact Reinaldo Figueiredo (rfigueir@ansi.org; 202.331.3611), ANSI senior program director for product and process accreditation, or Elizabeth Okutuga (EOkutuga@ansi.org; 202.331.3627), ANSI program coordinator for product certification accreditation.
