Formaldehyde is classified as a carcinogen by the World Health Organization (WHO) and ranks second on the List of Toxic Chemicals under Priority Control in China. Most indoor formaldehyde comes from man-made panel boards. Many countries have placed formaldehyde off-gassing restriction on man-made panel boards. The F★★★★ Standard from Japan has the strictest regulations*. NOVOFIBRE has received formaldehyde-free certification through Japan’s F★★★★ certification program for its products.

*In accordance with F★★★★ standards, the tested formaldehyde content should not be higher than 0.3mg/L (0.5mg/L under E0 Standards).
