CPSC Releases Updated Chinese Drywall Identification Guidance

The Federal Interagency Task Force has updated Revision 1 to the Interim Guidance–Identification of Homes with Corrosion from Problem Drywall, dated August 27, 2010, to reflect additional information concerning the installation dates of problem drywall imported from China. Specifically, the CPSC has found a number of homes where problem drywall previously imported from China was not installed in homes until calendar year 2009; previously, it was believed that all such problem drywall installations were completed by the end of calendar year 2008. In the update, the years of installation are adjusted to include calendar year 2009: Identification Guidance for Homes with Corrosion from Problem Drywall as of March 18, 2011.
