consprod -- Public Workshop to Discuss Proposed Amendments to the California Consumer Products Regulation Regarding Automotive Windshield Washer Fluid

Posted: 18 Jun 2012 15:19:03
The California Air Resources Board (ARB/Board) staff invites you
to participate in a public workshop on Tuesday, July 10, 2012, to
discuss amendments to the provisions for Automotive Windshield
Washer Fluid (AWWF) products contained in California’s Consumer
Products Regulation. The workshop notice is available at: 

Staff is proposing to redefine the term “Type A Area” to better
characterize areas of the State that are typically at higher
elevations and experience freezing temperatures.  Under existing
regulatory provisions, areas designated as “Type A” are allowed
to sell pre-mixed (ready-to-use) AWWF products with a volatile
organic compound (VOC) content of up to 25 percent by weight to
help prevent the AWWF from freezing.  The net effect of
redefining “Type A Area” would be to allow additional areas of
the State to sell higher VOC pre-mixed AWWF products.  

The workshop will be held at the date and time shown below: 

DATE:			Tuesday, July 10, 2012 
TIME:			9:00 a.m. (PDT)
LOCATION:		Cal/EPA Headquarters Building
			Sierra Hearing Room
			1001 I Street, 2nd Floor
			Sacramento, California 95814

Directions to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (Cal/EPA)
headquarters and public transit can be found at:

Background:  ARB’s Consumer Products Program is an important part
of overall efforts to reduce the amount of smog-forming volatile
organic compounds, toxic air contaminants and greenhouse gases
that are emitted from the use of chemically formulated consumer
products.  ARB’s consumer products regulations have resulted in
projected emissions reductions of nearly 50 percent since 1990.
