Guidelines for Volatile Organic Compounds in Consumer Products

Guidelines for Volatile Organic Compounds in Consumer Products (PDF; 55 KB)

The Guidelines for Volatile Organic Compounds in Consumer Products were published in November 2002 to fulfill commitments under the Federal Smog Management Plan - Phase II (Initiative V103), November 1997. The guidelines recommend Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) content limits for 23 consumer product categories and are equivalent to VOC content limits established by the United States Environment Protection Agency. The guidelines were developed through consultation with stakeholders including industry, industry associations, environmental non-governmental organizations, and provinces.

For additional information on programs addressing VOCs in consumer and commercial products, please see the VOCs web-site.
