Resources Board (ARB) on November 18, 2010. The regulation and
test method were filed with the Secretary of State, and will

General information about the Consumer Products Program is
available at the following address: 

Background:  ARBís Consumer Products Program is an important part
of overall efforts to reduce the amount of smog-forming volatile
organic compounds (VOC), toxic air contaminants, and greenhouse
gases that are emitted from the use of chemically formulated
consumer products.  ARBís consumer products regulations have
resulted in projected emissions reductions of nearly 50 percent
since 1990, but more needs to be done to meet health-based air
quality standards.  The amendments to the regulation are designed
to further reduce the amount of air pollutants emitted from
various categories of consumer products.
