If you manufacture or sell chipboard in the Netherlands, you must observe the requirements under the Chipboard (Commodities Act) Decree (Spaanplaatbesluit Warenwet), which includes the provision that chipboard must not contain more than 10 mg of formaldehyde per 100 g of sheet material.

Please note: The technical requirements that apply in the Netherlands to chipboard differ from those of other EU Member States. If a type of chipboard is already permitted in another EU Member State, the Dutch government may only prohibit its sale in the Netherlands in exceptional cases.
