California Air Toxics Program
This page last reviewed July 13, 2015
The California Air Toxics Program establishes the process for the identification and control of toxic air contaminants and includes provisions to make the public aware of significant toxic exposures and for reducing risk. Combined, these provisions are some of this nation's most successful for providing public health protection from air toxics. Please read more about our identification and control efforts and take a look at our brochure concerning Reducing Toxic Air Pollutants in California's Communities. Also, you might be interested in California's Toxics "Hot Spots" Program (AB 2588) or the Children's Environmental Health Protection Act (SB 25).
