CARB proposes changes to 2004 VOC regulation.
California procedures allow CARB to propose minor changes to a regulation adopted by the board for a 15-day public comment period. The regulation is then sent to CARB's Office of Administrative Law for final approval.
By modifying the date code, CARB is providing additional flexibility for multi-unit packages for individual products that may be manufactured on different days. For multi-unit packages "produced or assembled" after Jan. 1, 2006, one date code may be used indicating when the multi-unit package was assembled. This provides an alternative to making the date of manufacture for each product visible to the consumer at the time of purchase.
The latest version of the rule does not change the VOC limits adopted for shaving gels and hair styling products, the only new personal care products subject to this regulation.
