Public Hearing to Consider Adoption of ARB Modifications to ARB Method 3170 to Include the
Determination of Low Vapor Pressure-Volatile Organic Compounds (LVP-VOC) in Consumer
Products and Amendments to the Definition and Test Method Sections of the California
Regulations to include the Determination of Low Vapor Pressure-Volatile Organic Compounds
(LVP-VOC) in Antiperspirants and Deodorants, Consumer Products, and Aerosol Coating Product7s
Staff is proposing to revise the definition of low vapor pressure-volatile organic compound (LVP-VOC) and ARB Method 310. The proposed amendments specify criteria for determining whether compounds or mixtures qualify as LVP-VOCs and the test methods to determine LVP-VOC status. The proposed changes also update several of the test procedures referenced in Method 310 and improve the clarity and consistency within the regulations.
Public Hearing to Consider Amendments to the Regulations for Reducing Volatile Organic
Compound Emissions from Aerosol Coatings, Antiperspirants and Deodorants, and Consumer
Staff is proposing amendments to the final volatile organic compound (VOC) limits for aerosol coatings including an extension of the effective date to January 1, 2002. Staff is also proposing to exempt methyl acetate from the VOC definitions in the aerosol coatings, antiperspirant and deodorant and consumer products regulations.
Public Hearing to Consider the Adoption of Certification Procedures for all Aftermarket Part and
Conversion Systems for Off-Road Vehicles, Engines, and Equipment
The proposed regulations will establish certification procedures for aftermarket parts for off-road sources. The proposed regulations will help ensure that emission reductions from off-road sources are not compromised by installations of non-certified aftermarket parts, yet will also allow aftermarket part manufacturers to participate in a market that has been previously closed to them.
