In Brief: EPA regulation of VOCs

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

EPA's list of products to be regulated does not include any new personal care product categories; all six have experienced regulatory action at the state level. All products identified for possible regulation "account for at least 80% of the total VOC emissions," the notice says. Group I includes categories that are already subject to regulatory action or have proposed action at the state level. EPA noted that the schedule "may be amended as further information becomes available"...
