It certifies that the formaldehyde emissions from raw or coated wood-based panels meet Japan's requirements for building products.

How it works. CATAS inspectors visit the company's warehouses every six months and sample the certified panels that will be analysed in the laboratory. At the same time, the company carries out periodic tests in its own laboratory for each type of certified product, sending the results regularly to our reference technicians for final approval. Compliance is verified according to the relevant Japanese and European standards.
