consprod -- Public Workshop to Discuss Proposed Amendments to the California Consumer Products Regulation Regarding Automotive Windshield Washer Fluid Posted: 18 Jun 2012 15:19:03
The California Air Resources Board (ARB/Board) staff invites you to participate in a public workshop on Tuesday, July 10, 2012, to discuss amendments to the provisions for Automotive Windshield Washer Fluid (AWWF) products contained in California’s Consumer Products Regulation. The workshop notice is available at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/consprod/regact/2012ra/07102012wn.pdf Staff is proposing to redefine the term “Type A Area” to better characterize areas of the State that are typically at higher elevations and experience freezing temperatures. Under existing regulatory provisions, areas designated as “Type A” are allowed to sell pre-mixed (ready-to-use) AWWF products with a volatile organic compound (VOC) content of up to 25 percent by weight to help prevent the AWWF from freezing. The net effect of redefining “Type A Area” would be to allow additional areas of the State to sell higher VOC pre-mixed AWWF products. The workshop will be held at the date and time shown below: DATE: Tuesday, July 10, 2012 TIME: 9:00 a.m. (PDT) LOCATION: Cal/EPA Headquarters Building Sierra Hearing Room 1001 I Street, 2nd Floor Sacramento, California 95814 Directions to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (Cal/EPA) headquarters and public transit can be found at: http://www.calepa.ca.gov/EPABldg/location.htm. You may also participate via webcast. For details please see the meeting announcement at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/consprod/regact/regact.htm. The regulation and general information about the Consumer Products Program is available at the following address: http://www.arb.ca.gov/consprod/consprod.htm. If you have questions, please contact Mr. Jose Gomez at (916) 324-8033 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Background: ARB’s Consumer Products Program is an important part of overall efforts to reduce the amount of smog-forming volatile organic compounds, toxic air contaminants and greenhouse gases that are emitted from the use of chemically formulated consumer products. ARB’s consumer products regulations have resulted in projected emissions reductions of nearly 50 percent since 1990.
