2003 Consumer and Commercial Products Survey Preliminary Data Summaries

The 2003 Survey

The Air Resources Board (ARB) is in the process of conducting a survey of consumer and commercial products that were sold with intention for use in California during Calendar Year 2003. This survey represents the first round of a two-part effort to update our consumer products volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions inventory and evaluate the feasibility of further reducing consumer product VOC emissions. Response to this survey also fulfills special reporting requirements for aerosol adhesives, outlined in title 17, section 94513(d) of the California Code of Regulations. The second survey, encompassing Calendar Year 2005, is planned for 2006.

Please note that the Preliminary Form must be completed and returned to the ARB by November 24, 2004. The survey forms must be completed by all responsible parties and formulators, and are due to the ARB by April 1, 2005.
