The environmental regulation of the wood building products (WBP) industry potentially affects large and small manufacturers engaged in the surface coating of WBP, but small firms may encounter special problems with compliance. The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA), as amended by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement and Fairness Act of 1996 (SBREFA), requires the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to consider the economic impacts of this regulatory action on these small entities. Therefore, RTI completed a preliminary screening analysis to assist the Agency in determining whether this rule is likely to impose a significant impact on a substantial number of small businesses. This analysis consists of a 'sales test' and a 'profit test.' The 'sales test' involves computing the annualized compliance cost as a share of sales for each company and comparing the distribution of these costs across large and small companies. The 'profit test' involves comparing the company profit margins with and without regulation, assuming full cost absorption by industry.
