Deadline Approaches for California’s Reporting Requirements on VOCs in Multi-Purpose Lubricants

Deadline Approaches for California's Reporting Requirements on VOCs in Multi-Purpose Lubricants


On December 30, 2016, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) posted materials related to the upcoming special reporting requirements for multi-purpose lubricant products. These products are subject to a volatile organic compound (VOC) limit of 10% by weight which becomes effective on December 31, 2018.

The data required under the special reporting requirements must be submitted by March 31, 2017.

Letter from Doug Raymond

CARB Reporting

On December 30, 2016, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) released their Reporting Tool for Multi-purpose Lubricants. This Reporting Tool is similar to their survey which has been conducted for the last three years.
This report is mandatory for all responsible parties that sold Multi-purpose Lubricant into California in 2016.  The report is due by March 31, 2017.  In addition any formulator that formulates a Multi-purpose Lubricant for a marketer that sells into California needs to report the formula by March 31, 2017, as well.  This may be difficult if the formulator is not aware of the client selling the product in California.
In this report you must provide all R & D efforts that are ongoing to meet the future effective VOC limit of 10% effective December 31, 2018.  This includes costs.
Call with questions.
