1. Introduction

Aerosol coating products were identified, through the Federal Agenda for Reduction of Emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds from Consumer and Commercial Products, as one of seven possible areas that offer opportunities for volatile organic compound (VOC) emission reductions. Environment Canada is considering the development of measures to establish VOC reactivity limits for aerosol coatings in Canada. The purpose of this document is to provide background information and supporting rationale for the categories and reactivity limits that would be the basis for possible reduction measures.
