FAQ Low Emission Formaldehyde Carpentry Work

Frequently Asked Questions

Formaldehyde is a common indoor air pollutant, typically recognized as a colourless gas with a distinct pungent smell.

Exposure to formaldehyde can lead to irritation of the eyes, nose, skin, and throat, among other potential health effects.

Formaldehyde can be found in various household products such as pressed wood (plywood, particle board, panelling), foam insulation, wallpaper, paints, coatings, lacquers, and paper products, potentially emitting high levels of formaldehyde.

As of now, there isn’t a specific regulation governing indoor air quality in Singapore. However, there is a recommended standard. Starting from January 1, 2026, paints sold in Singapore intended for application on interior surfaces of buildings must meet the standard set by the National Environment Agency (NEA).
