CTFA testifies on proposed NJ VOC rule changes.
* VOC (volatile organic compound) limits for regulated products
sold or manufactured in New Jersey, such as antiperspirants and shaving
creams, will go into effect on or after Jan. 1, 2005. The Cosmetic,
Toiletry & Fragrance Association (CTFA), Washington, D.C., testified
before the NJ Department of Environmental Protection to change the
state's existing VOC rules for consumer products. The CTFA urged
the state to drop provisions that were inconsistent with the Ozone
Transport Commission (OTC) Model Consumer Product Rule and a five-year
record retention policy for manufacturers.
