Reminder: CARB Survey is due on March 1st

Remember, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) is conducting a mandatory 2013 survey of all commercial and consumer products. The survey is due March 1st–less than ten days¬†from now.

From Regulatory Issues columnist Doug Raymond:
“By now you should be working on your California Air Resources Board (CARB) Consumer Product Survey. This very comprehensive survey needs to be completed by March 1, 2015. If you sold a Consumer Product into the state of California in 2013 and your product is on the CARB survey form, you are responsible to fill out the survey (it is state law, as well).

Some of the items that need to be included in this survey are products sold into California for sale in 2013, as well as all formula data, which means that 100% of the formula needs to be included in the survey. In addition, the ability to group products into a single entry has been greatly reduced. This means more entries to the survey.

If you have not started on the survey you need to¬†begin now! Remember, the better the data that is submitted, the better volatile organic compounds (VOC) regulations we can develop.”
