arbcombo -- 15-Day Notice of Public Availability of Modified Text and Availability of Additional Document Posted: 20 Jul 2011 10:41:17
The California Air Resources Board has posted the 15-Day Notice of Public Availability of Modified Text and Availability of an Additional Document for the Proposed Amendment to the Consumer Products Regulation. This notice and the associated regulatory materials can be accessed from the ARB website address: http://www.arb.ca.gov/regact/2010/cp2010/cp2010.htm Summary: At its November 18, 2010, public hearing, the ARB approved amendments to the Regulation for Reducing Emissions from Consumer Products (title 17, California Code of Regulations (CCR), sections 94507-94517). The proposed amendments would set new or lower volatile organic compound (VOC) limits for a number of categories. For specific categories the proposed amendments would also prohibit use of certain toxic air contaminants, compounds with higher global warming potentials, and certain surfactants that are toxic to aquatic species. At the hearing, the staff presented, and the Board approved, modifications to the regulations originally proposed in the Staff Report released on September 29, 2010, in response to comments received after the Staff Report was published. The modifications include revisions to limits, effective dates and definitions for various Lubricant subcategories; restoration of an exclusion for certain Penetrant products used on energized equipment; revisions to the Most Restrictive Limit provision; and other nonsubstantive grammatical and organizational changes. All of these proposed revisions are shown in Attachment A to the notice in double underline to indicate additions and double strikeout to indicate deletions. In the interest of completeness staff has also added to the rulemaking record and invites comments on a memorandum to Richard Corey, Chief, Stationary Source Division, from Victoria A. Whitney, Deputy Director, Division of Water Quality, (DWQ) dated June 20, 2011. This memorandum provides DWQ staffís response to comments submitted by the Alkylphenol Ethoxylates Research Council on November 17, 2010. General information about the Consumer Products Program is available at the following address: http://www.arb.ca.gov/consprod/consprod.htm Background: ARBís Consumer Products Program is an important part of overall efforts to reduce the amount of smog-forming VOC, toxic air contaminants and greenhouse gases that are emitted from the use of chemically formulated consumer products. ARBís consumer products regulations have resulted in projected emission reductions of nearly 50 percent since 1990, but more needs to be done to meet health-based air quality standards.
