California’s Air Resources Board (ARB) will consider adopting Consumer Products Regulation Amendments at its September 24 – 25th Board Meeting.  Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) limits have been proposed for categories including Paint Thinners, Multi-Purpose Solvents, and Double Phase Aerosol Air Fresheners.

The proposal will be discussed in detail at a Public Workshop on Tuesday, August 4th, starting at 9:30 a.m. at ARB’s Monitoring and Laboratory Division Building, 1927 13th St., First Floor Conference Room, in Sacramento.  ARB anticipates releasing proposed regulatory language and other materials prior to the workshop, at the following website: http://www.arb.ca.gov/consprod/regact/tscpwg/tscpwg.htm

In addition to VOC limits, ARB is also proposing other regulatory modifications affecting exemptions, administrative and reporting requirements including modifications to the ARB Test Method 310 to accommodate lower VOC limits that will soon be effective.
