Executive Order G-712 - Innovative Consumer Products

This page last reviewed June 7, 2006

The Air Resources Board has adopted several regulations to reduce the amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that are emitted from the use of consumer products in homes and institutions. The Consumer Products Regulations are found in Title 17, California Code of Regulations, Division 3, Chapter 1, Subchapter 8.5, Articles 1 through 5, Sections 94500-94575 and can be viewed here . The Innovative Products Provision (IPP) in section 94511 provides additional flexibility for manufacturers and allows the sale of consumer products that exceed VOC limits, but emit fewer VOCs through special formulation or packaging.
