There are five existing consumer product regulations in California. The first regulation (Article 1) covers only one category called antiperspirants and deodorants. The second regulation (Article 2) is simply called the "general consumer products regulation." The third regulation (Article 3) covers categories of aerosol coatings. These three regulations contain VOC reactivity limits that apply to numorous product types. For compliance flexibility, the fourth regulation (Article 4) is a voluntary emissions averaging program for consumer products, called the Alternative Control Plan (ACP) regulation. The fifth regulation (Article 5) is a voluntary program that provides an incentive for early or over compliance, called the Hairspray Credit Program Regulation.
