BACKGROUND: ARBís Consumer Products Program is an important part of Californiaís efforts to reduce the amount of smog-forming volatile organic compounds, toxic air contaminants and greenhouse gases emitted from the use of chemically formulated consumer products. ARBís consumer products regulations have resulted in emission reductions of nearly 50 percent since 1990, but more is needed to meet federally required health-based air-quality standards.
