The Chi­nese na­tional formalde­hyde emis­sion stan­dard (GB18580-2017) has been re­leased by the Gen­eral Ad­min­is­tra­tion of China Na­tional Qual­ity Su­per­vi­sion, In­spec­tion and Quar­an­tine Bu­reau and China Na­tional Stan­dards Ad­min­is­tra­tion. The stan­dard will en­ter into force on 1 May 2018. In the new stan­dard, the formalde­hyde emis­sion limit will be low­ered to 0.124 mg/m3 and the test method for de­tec­tion of formalde­hyde emis­sion has been uni­fied. An­a­lysts say that the re­vised stan­dard will en­hance prod­uct qual­ity and mar­ket ac­cep­tance and will pro­foundly al­ter the struc­ture of for­est prod­ucts in­dus­try.
