Summary:  At its November 18, 2010, public hearing, the ARB
approved amendments to the Regulation for Reducing Emissions from
Consumer Products (title 17, California Code of Regulations
(CCR), sections 94507-94517).  The proposed amendments would set
new or lower volatile organic compound (VOC) limits for a number
of categories.  For specific categories the proposed amendments
would also prohibit use of certain toxic air contaminants,
compounds with higher global warming potentials, and certain
surfactants that are toxic to aquatic species.  

At the hearing, the staff presented, and the Board approved,
modifications to the regulations originally proposed in the Staff
Report released on September 29, 2010, in response to comments
received after the Staff Report was published.  The modifications
include revisions to limits, effective dates and definitions for
various Lubricant subcategories; restoration of an exclusion for
certain Penetrant products used on energized equipment; revisions
to the Most Restrictive Limit provision; and other nonsubstantive
grammatical and organizational changes.  All of these proposed
revisions are shown in Attachment A to the notice in double

reductions of nearly 50 percent since 1990, but more needs to be
done to meet health-based air quality standards.
