CARB webinars on July 9 & July 28; July 2 review available

On July 2, 2020, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) laboratory staff reviewed, via webinar, its changes to Method 310, which are laboratory methods used to determine volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in Consumer Products and Reactive organic compounds (ROCs) in Aerosol Coatings.

Laboratory staff stated that there were no changes to the low vapor pressure (LVP) compound requirements and that no LVP test methods would be removed.
