How about it? This looks like spam, but nevertheless a very interesting question. Based on the poster's profile, this is from a kitchen company in China. For comparison, here are the European standards:
"The wood panel industry has standards and guidance on the permitted levels of formaldehyde that can be emitted by wood based panels. The European standard EN13986 sets formaldehyde emissions in which Class E1 boards are limited to emissions of 0.13 mg / m3 of air (or 0.1ppm, as measured according to the "emission chamber test", EN 717-1). The E1 class of boards includes particleboards, OSB, and MDF. All European manufacturers can meet this standard and some are developing products with emissions that are 50% of the E1 level i.e. 0.05ppm."

Didn't know this, and certainly doesn't sound like I want a Chinese "green" kitchen.
What are US standards?
And where are IKEA's US kitchens manufactured? On the IKEA fans web site (2010), people report stickers "Made in [a European country]."

Here is a link that might be useful: European formaldehyde standards
