consprod -- Consprod Upcoming Consumer Product Requirements Posted: 09 Nov 2012 12:46:27
We have posted a letter reminding stakeholders that certain requirements for various consumer product categories will become effective on December 31, 2012, at the following site:. http://www.arb.ca.gov/consprod/consprod.htm#whatsnew. The requirements include volatile organic compound (VOC) and Global Warming Potential (GWP) standards, and alkylphenol ethoxylate surfactants and toxic compound prohibitions. These requirements are likely to affect manufacturers of air fresheners, general purpose cleaners, general purpose degreasers, glass cleaners, metal polish or cleansers, sealant or caulking compounds, spot removers, oven or grill cleaners, and lubricants. The specific regulatory requirements are contained in the Regulation for Reducing Emissions from Consumer Products (Consumer Products Regulation), sections 94507Ė94517, title 17, California Code of Regulations. Background: ARB monitors the progress of manufacturers in meeting upcoming requirements to ensure companies are on track to comply with the requirements before they become effective. ARBís Consumer Products Program is an important part of overall efforts to reduce the amount of smog-forming emissions, toxic air contaminants, and greenhouse gases 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. General information about the Consumer Products Program is available at the following address: http://www.arb.ca.gov/consprod/consprod.htm Questions or comments concerning this e-mail should be directed to Ms. Judy Yee at (916) 322-9148, or email email@example.com or Ms. Jasmine Nguyen at (916) 322-5911, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
