Western Aerosol Information Bureau (WAIB) invites participants to join the next round of five work group meetings with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) regarding Consumer Product Regulation amendments in California.
California statute requires CARB adopt regulations to achieve the maximum feasible consumer product volatile organic compound (VOC) emission reductions as needed to meet State and Federal air quality standards (California Health & Safety Code Section 41712). This rulemaking is intended to meet this mandate by achieving additional VOC emission reductions of 1–2 tons per day in the South Coast Air Basin by 2023 and 8–10 tpd Statewide by 2031, as described in California’s 2016 State Strategy for the State Implementation Plan.
At these meetings, CARB staff will solicit stakeholder feedback on draft policy and technical evaluations of key consumer product categories and topics areas. Four topic-specific meetings will be held by webinar only, while one Regulatory Definitions Work Group meeting will be held in person and by teleconference. These five meetings are open to all interested stakeholders. The dates, times, and topics for these meetings are described below.
The webinars include:
