DPR 12- 001 Volatile Organic Compounds in the San Joaquin Valley Ozone Nonattainment Area   (Notice 4/20/12; Comment period closes 6/7/12)

DPR proposes to amend sections 6452, 6452.2, and 6864; amend section 6452.4 and renumber to 6881; renumber section 6890 to 6864; and adopt sections 6558, 6577, 6880, 6883, 6884, and 6886 of Title 3 California Code of Regulations. The proposed action would require nonfumigant use prohibitions on certain crops in the San Joaquin Valley ozone nonattainment area when using products with agricultural uses containing abamectin, chlorpyrifos, gibberellins, or oxyfluorfen during May 1 through October 31 if the volatile organic compound (VOC) emission limit is triggered. Also, when purchasing or using certain products containing these four active ingredients, the proposed action would require a written recommendation from a licensed pest control adviser, and require pest control dealers to provide VOC information to the purchaser.
