Reporting Period Begins for 2015 CARB Survey

The reporting period for the 2015 California Air Resources Board (CARB) Consumer and Commercial Products Survey begins on July 1, 2016. This is the third and final year of the CARB Survey program and is mandatory for all "responsible parties" that manufactured consumer products or commercial products sold in California during the 2015 calendar year. A notable change for the 2015 Survey is a new exemption for certain product categories (e.g., certain adhesives, cleaners, and coatings) that CARB determined have low or no volatile organic compound emissions. Reporting for the 2015 CARB Consumer and Commercial Products Survey must be complete by November 1, 2016.

For Responsible Parties who reported in the previous reporting periods, only sales information for 2015 is required, unless a change was made to an existing product or a new product was sold in 2015. Data from previous reporting years can be downloaded to prepopulate the reporting form. CARB is aware that many companies did not report for the 2013 and 2014 Surveys and has sent letters to these companies. Penalties, including significant per day fines, can be assessed.
