"EPA Can Keep Formaldehyde Health Assessment Under Wraps"

"The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has no obligation to share its study of the risks of inhaling formaldehyde with Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility, because the document sought is only a draft, a Washington federal court ruled.

The agency identified the 2018 version of its formaldehyde assessment as a draft, and the version precedes the EPA’s official statement on the chemical’s health risks, according to the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The document also contains red lines and comment bubbles, which also indicates a draft document, the court said June 18."
