On Thursday, November 10, 2011, the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) approved amendments to the Consumer Products Regulation and Test Method 310 that were approved by the California Air Resources Board (ARB) on November 18, 2010. The regulation and test method were filed with the Secretary of State, and will become effective December 10, 2011. We have posted the Final Regulation Order as approved by OAL at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/consprod/regs/gencpregs.htm. Test Method 310, which is used to enforce the Consumer Products Regulation, is available at the following address: http://www.arb.ca.gov/testmeth/cptm/cptm.htm 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 volatile organic compounds (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 emissions reductions of nearly 50 percent since 1990, but more needs to be done to meet health-based air quality standards. The amendments to the regulation are designed to further reduce the amount of air pollutants emitted from various categories of consumer products.
