DPR 16-005 Copper-Based Antifouling Paint and Coating Products (Notice 11/18/16; Comment period closes 1/4/17)
DPR proposes to adopt section 6190 of Title 3, California Code of Regulations. The proposed action requires registrants of all new copper-based antifouling paint and coating (AFP) products to submit estimated daily mean copper release rate (also referred to as leach rate) data as a requirement for registration. In addition, effective July 1, 2018, the proposed action establishes a maximum allowable copper leach rate for copper-based AFP products registered in California for use on recreational vessels and states that currently registered products exceeding the leach rate will be subject to cancellation. This proposed action also defines "recreational vessel" and "commercial vessel."
