NAHB Helps Improve, Clarify Formaldehyde Rule The final Formaldehyde Emission Standards for Composite Wood Products rule has been released by the Environmental Protection Agency. The rule establishes formaldehyde emission standards as well as product testing and tracking requirements for composite wood products. And thanks to the work of NAHB members and staff, the final rule includes some significant and notable changes for the renovation and construction industry, including clarification of certain terms to exclude renovation and construction activities. NAHB met with EPA and the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in May during OMB’s review of the draft final rule to discuss the Federation’s concerns — the only group representing the industry to do so — and EPA listened. Former NAHB Remodelers Chair Robert Criner highlighted the lack of clarity and overly broad nature of the proposed rule, pointing specifically to confusing definitions for key terms. Remodelers and builders, he said, were unsure which requirements they would be governed by. As a result of NAHB’s concerns, EPA again reviewed the intent of Congress when it asked for the new standards — and the agency agreed that remodeling work is not the kind of activity that Congress intended to regulate. EPA added specific exceptions in the final rule to both the definition of the terms “fabricator” and “retailer” to ensure it is clear that remodelers are not intended to be covered. In addition, EPA clarified the meaning of the term “finished good” to help address concerns regarding the scope and applicability of the rule. According to EPA, Congress intended to regulate goods that are “produced through a manufacturing process at a manufacturing facility, not objects like buildings or other structures that are constructed on site and become a permanent addition to real property.” This means that new construction built on site will not be subject to the regulation, but the rule may still apply to mobile home manufacturing (NAICS code 321991) and prefabricated wood building manufacturing (NAICS code 321992), such as decorative particleboard and plywood. EPA highlighted these changes in the preamble of the final rule, as well as in the rule’s accompanying EPA Fact Sheet, stating that “By regulating the manufacture of a product, the regulation works to ensure that only compliant composite wood products enter the marketplace.” NAHB had reminded OMB in May that the statute required EPA to set a de minimis level of regulated content, defining what goods would not be subject to the regulations. The final rule clarifies that finished goods that do not contain regulated content exceeding 144 square inches, based on the surface area of the largest face, are not subject to regulation. 9 NAHB staff continues its review, and a full summary of the rule will be posted shortly. The rule will be effective 60 days after publication in the Federal Register, which is expected within 10 working days from it when it was signed on July 27.

Overregulation Is Preventing a Full Recovery for Housing Builder Magazine - July 2016: Ed Brady NAHB Chairman of the Board For the housing industry, regulatory costs are a major concern. We are all incredibly relieved that the darkest days for housing triggered by the Great Recession are over. In the past few years, our industry has gradually picked up speed. Recent government data show that single-family production has increased 120% from the market low in 2009. But as far as we’ve come, there’s still a long way to go. Housing production, while improving, remains at only 58% of normal. Several obstacles are preventing a complete recovery, including overregulation of the housing industry. Overly burdensome regulations complicate our businesses while providing little of their intended benefits. But even more important, they add to the cost of the house—making it more difficult or even impossible for many deserving families to achieve the American dream of homeownership. A recently published NAHB study shows that government regulations account for 24.3% of the final price of a new single-family home. Threefifths of this total—or 14.6% of the final house price—is due to regulations imposed during the lot’s development. The other two-fifths—or 9.7% of the home price—are regulatory costs incurred by the builder after purchasing the finished lot. In this study, our economists also report that regulatory costs imposed on an average singlefamily home increased almost 30% in the past five years, rising from $65,224 in 2011 to $84,671 in 2016. This trend is likely to continue, as there are a number of regulations in the pipeline. These include OSHA’s new rules on reducing silica exposure, fire sprinkler mandates, and the Department of Labor’s recently finalized regulation on overtime pay. 13 Equally troubling, the cost of regulations in the price of a new home is rising more than twice as fast as our buyers’ ability to pay for it. Disposable income per capita increased by only 14.4% in this same five-year time span. NAHB economists estimate that 14 million American households are “priced out” of the market for a typical newly built home by government regulations. Regulations come in many forms and can be imposed by local, state, or federal governments. For instance, local jurisdictions may charge permit, hook-up, and impact fees and establish development and construction standards. State governments may be involved in these processes directly or indirectly. Meanwhile, the federal government can require certain permits for land development, among other measures. There is a need for sensible regulations in our industry, but we must put a stop to excessive mandates that do little else besides increase the cost of housing. That is why the NAHB devotes a great deal of time and effort to fighting regulatory overreach on behalf of its members. NAHB battles overregulation head-on, engaging with legislators and regulators and using legal measures when necessary. We are not alone. More and more people are waking up to the fact that housing affordability has become a real problem, with lasting effects on consumers and the overall economy. Our government should be part of the solution to make homeownership accessible to hardworking Americans. Ed Brady, the 2016 NAHB Chairman, is a second-generation home builder based in Illinois. Having grown up the son of a builder, Brady is a builder by blood and has a deep understanding of the problems builders are facing.
Penalties for OSHA Fines Will Increase Aug. 1 On Aug. 1, monetary penalties issued by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for regulation infractions are slated to rise by up to 150% depending on the type of violation. Type of Violation Serious Other-Than-Serious Posting Requirements Failure to Abate Willful or Repeated Current Maximum Penalty $7,000 per violation $7,000 per day beyond the abatement date $70,000 per violation New Maximum Penalty $12,471 per violation $12,471 per day beyond the abatement date $124,709 per violation Last fall, the president signed a budget bill that allowed the agency to enact a catch-up adjustment and raise fines annually in line with the Consumer Price Index (CPI). This marks the first time in 25 years that OSHA fines have gone up. These are for individual violations—not an overall total for the number of violations a business may receive. Previously, OSHA was one of few federal agencies with civil penalties that do not increase with inflation. OSHA intends to provide guidance on the implementation of the new penalties by Aug. 1. Additionally, to address the impact they may have on small businesses, the agency plans to continue providing penalty reductions based on employer size and other factors. States that operate their own Occupational Safety and Health Plans are required to adopt maximum penalty levels that are at least as effective as federal OSHA’s. How can you prevent this from happening at your business? Develop a written safety program highlighting how your business will comply with the OSHA regulations (osha.gov) OSHA's 2015 TOP TEN Conduct compliance training as required by OSHA with your employees and document the training with employee sign-in sheets (osha.gov/Publications/osha2254.pdf) Walk around your job sites on a daily basis and search for hazards and fix them before employees are injured. Get employees involved in your safety program. They do the hands-on work and probably have a lot of ideas on how to improve the safety and efficiency of the business. Create safety committees to explore additional ideas that will work in your business. 14 Most Frequently Cited Violations for Fiscal 2015 (Oct. 1, 2014, to Sept. 30, 2015) 1. 1926.501 – Fall Protection (C) 2. 1910.1200 – Hazard Communication 3. 1926.451 – Scaffolding (C) 4. 1910.134 – Respiratory Protection 5. 1910.147 – Lockout/Tagout 6. 1910.178 – Powered Industrial Trucks 7. 1926.1053 – Ladders (C) 8. 1910.305 – Electrical, Wiring Methods 9. 1910.212 – Machine Guarding 10. 1910.303 – Electrical, General Requirements (C) = Construction standard *As of 01/05/16
