The California Air Resources Board (CARB) is engaged in one of the largest rulemaking proceedings for consumer products that the agency has conducted in 30 years. As a result, the Household & Commercial Products Association (HCPA) Air Quality Council has been a leader in the rulemaking process with CARB staff since April. HCPA’s goal is to ensure that any new regulatory limits for volatile organic compounds (VOCs) will still allow HCPA member companies to manufacture products that consumers rely on to contribute positively to their health, safety and quality of life.
Recently, Air Quality Council members have been conducting numerous internal conference calls to develop consensus positions on VOC limits that are necessary to ensure the continued efficacy of the product categories identified by the CARB Regulatory Strategies Work Group. To effectively represent our members’ interests in HCPA’s ongoing discussions with CARB staff, the Air Quality Council asks for the active participation of all members who could potentially be impacted by these decisions.
