Posted: 09 Nov 2012 12:46:27
We have posted a letter reminding stakeholders that certain
requirements for various consumer product categories will become
effective on December 31, 2012, at the following site:.
http://www.arb.ca.gov/consprod/consprod.htm#whatsnew.  The
requirements include volatile organic compound (VOC) and Global
Warming Potential (GWP) standards, and alkylphenol ethoxylate
surfactants and toxic compound prohibitions.  These requirements
are likely to affect manufacturers of air fresheners, general
purpose cleaners, general purpose degreasers, glass cleaners,
metal polish or cleansers, sealant or caulking compounds, spot
removers, oven or grill cleaners, and lubricants.  The specific
regulatory requirements are contained in the Regulation for
Reducing Emissions from Consumer Products (Consumer Products
Regulation), sections 94507Ė94517, title 17, California Code of

Background: ARB monitors the progress of manufacturers in meeting
upcoming requirements to ensure companies are on track to comply
with the requirements before they become effective.

ARBís Consumer Products Program is an important part of overall
efforts to reduce the amount of smog-forming emissions, toxic air
contaminants, and greenhouse gases emitted from the use of
chemically formulated consumer products.  ARBís consumer products
regulations have resulted in projected emission reductions of
nearly 50 percent since 1990, but more needs to be done to meet
health-based air quality standards.

General information about the Consumer Products Program is
