CARB Opens 2018 Aerosol Coating and Adhesive Products Survey


survey

On Oct. 18, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) opened its 2018 Aerosol Coating and Aerosol Adhesive Products Survey. The 2018 Survey aims to gather data from manufacturers and formulators about aerosol coating and aerosol adhesive products sold or supplied for use in California during calendar year 2018. The data gathered in this survey will be used to help California meet its federally mandated commitments for volatile organic compound (VOC) reductions under the Clean Air Act.

CARB states that the survey will provide useful information about how products were reformulated to meet the new limits that became effective in 2017. The deadline for completing the survey is March 1, 2020.

Survey completion is mandatory under California State Law for those companies listed on the label of an aerosol coating or aerosol adhesive product sold or supplied for use in California during 2018. California State Law (title 17, California Code of Regulation, sections 94513 and 94524(c)) dictates that each company, firm, or establishment listed on the label of an aerosol coating or aerosol adhesive product that was sold or supplied for use in California during calendar year 2018 must complete the survey.

The 2018 survey is part of CARB’s ongoing effort to evaluate the feasibility of further reducing VOC, toxic air contaminant (TAC), and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from aerosol coating and aerosol adhesive products, and to update the emissions inventory of aerosol coating and aerosol adhesive products.
