This page contains documents related to the "informal" events that pertain to the "Consumer and Commercial Products Survey." "Informal" regulatory activity refers to all activity that is NOT directly involved in the formal rulemaking process. This ongoing subject area may or may not lead to a formal rulemaking process. By clicking on an item below, you can access documents associated with the particular area of interest.



Provided for your information is the final summary of the results of our 1997 Consumer and Commercial Products Survey. This table summarizes the sales and ingredients for 100 product categories included in the Survey. It is intended that this table supercede the preliminary version released on March 4, 1999. Many additional products were added subsequent to the release of the preliminary table, and some corrections and deletions were performed, so the results listed in the March 4, 1999, table are no longer valid. The VOC emissions, along with emission estimates for low vapor pressure hydrocarbon solvents, will be incorporated into the statewide emissions inventory.

The summary table includes the following information in tons per day by category: 1) the reported product sales; 2) the adjusted product sales to reflect complete market coverage; and 3) the corresponding adjusted emission values for total Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), parachlorobenzotrifluoride (PCBTF), methylene chloride (MeCl), 1,1,1-trichloroethane (TCA), volatile methyl siloxanes (VMS), acetone, carbon dioxide (CO2), hydrofluorocarbon 152a (HFC-152a), water (H2O), and perchloroehylene (PERC). In the previous version of this table, a column for Low Vapor Pressure VOC's (LVP-VOC's) was included. This column was deleted because it included many compounds such as surfactants and resins that are non-volatile and therefore are not emitted. The water column was also deleted.

The adjustment factors are not listed by category, but can be calculated by dividing the adjusted sales by the reported sales. In all but nine categories, we assumed a 90 percent market coverage. For the remaining nine categories, the adjusted sales are shown in bold print. The rationale for further adjusting the reported sales in these categories can be provided upon request.

If you have any questions regarding the summary table or the market coverage adjustments, or would like a copy of the previous version of the table, please contact Consumer Products Help
