Agenda Item #

 Agenda Topic  
     

06-8-1:

Report to the Board on a Health Update: Indoor Air Chemistry and Implications for Health  
  The indoor use of certain common cleaning products and air fresheners can cause an increase in indoor concentrations of gaseous and particulate pollutants. In a study sponsored by ARB and conducted by Dr. Bill Nazaroff of UC Berkeley, cleaning products used in the presence of ozone resulted in the production of formaldehyde, ultrafine particulate matter, and hydroxyl radicals from the indoor chemistry reactions.

Public Hearing to Consider Amendments to the Hexavalent Chromium Airborne Toxic Control Measure (ATCM) for Chrome Plating and Chromic Acid Anodizing Operations  
  The staff is proposing amendments to the Chromium Plating ATCM to reduce the cancer risk posed by hexavalent chromium emissions. Hexavalent chromium is a human carcinogen.

06-8-4:

Public Hearing to Consider Technical Status and Proposed Revisions to Malfunction and Diagnostic System Requirements and Associated Enforcement Provisions for Passenger Cars, Light-Duty Trucks, and Medium-Duty Vehicles and Engines On-Board Diagnostic (OBD II) and Emission Warranty Regulation  
  This proposal would update the OBD II requirements for light-duty and medium-duty gasoline and diesel vehicles. Most of the proposed new requirements are aimed at making the diesel monitoring requirements consistent with those in the recently adopted heavy-duty OBD regulation. The proposal would also update the emission warranty regulations, specifically the references to emission-related parts to account for emission control technology that is used today.

06-8-5:

Public Hearing to Consider Adoption of California's Heavy-Duty Diesel In-Use Compliance Regulation  
  ARB, the U.S. EPA, and the Engine Manufacturers Association have developed a manufacturer-run heavy-duty diesel engine in-use compliance program. In this program, manufacturers will test heavy-duty diesel engines in-use with on-board measurement systems under the Not-to-Exceed testing concept. A fully enforceable manufacturer-run compliance program for ARB and U.S. EPA will begin in 2007. Earlier, in 2005 and 2006, the same testing protocol is being used in a pilot program to generate data and gain experience.
