Rule 1168 Test Method Working Group


The SCAQMD worked with stakeholders, manufacturers, and other regulatory agencies to develop a guidance document to clarify which test method is used for compliance verification of products regulated by Rule 1168.  The October 2017 rule amendment includes the following language in paragraph (e)(1):

The Executive Officer will develop a Guidance Document to determine which test method will be used when two or more applicable test methods can be used to demonstrate compliance with the rule.  The selected test method will be based on product type, chemistry, and VOC content.

The Test Method Guidance Document for Rule 1168 was approved at the October 2018 Governing Board Meeting. Any future information regarding test method development or any updates to the Test Method Guidance Document will be posted to this webpage, including meeting dates, presentations, and support documents.
