Architectural Coatings Program - Suggested Control Measure
This page last reviewed August 7, 2014.
The Suggested Control Measure (SCM) is a "model rule" developed by ARB that local air districts can copy for their architectural coatings rules. The SCM was last amended in 2000. We are proposing to amend it again in 2007. Below are links for the 2007 SCM update process.

Draft Compliant Product Lists
- These are partial lists of products that comply with proposed VOC limits, based on survey data, product data sheets, and literature searches. They are not intended to be exhaustive or complete lists; other products not listed could also comply with the proposed VOC limits. They are not intended to be lists of "approved" products. The numbers of products that would comply do not necessarily correspond to the percentage of marketshare that would comply.
