The July 6 edition of the Federal Register announced the withdrawal of EPA's proposed “Direct Final Rule" of the Formaldehyde Emissions Standards for Composite Wood Products after the agency received adverse comment.  The Direct Final Rule would have extended the TSCA Title VI compliance dates, therefore the compliance date for labeling composite panels reverts back to December 12, 2017.

Notably, EPA is still moving forward with its proposed rule, published on May 24, that contains the same extended compliance dates as those in the Direct Final Rule, including the March 22, 2018 date for panel emissions certification, labeling and record keeping requirements.  For this rulemaking, EPA will only consider comments already received by the June 8 deadline.  EPA has indicated that it plans to expedite the rule review process this summer.
