Branded Acquico No 5, LLC dba Puracy Settlement
Branded Acquico No 5, LLC, dba Puracy Settles For $6,000
In October 2023, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) reached a settlement with Branded Acquico No 5, LLC dba Puracy (Puracy) with its principal location in New York, New York, for the company’s violation of CARB’s Regulation for Reducing Emissions from Consumer Products (Consumer Products Regulation) as codified in the California Code of Regulations, title 17, sections 94507 et seq.
CARB staff conducted an investigation that revealed Puracy sold, supplied, offered for sale and/or manufactured a general purpose cleaner (nonaerosol) for use in California containing concentrations of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that exceeded the standards specified in the California Code of Regulations, title 17, section 94509(a). Puracy also failed to meet the product dating reporting requirements as stated in the California Code of Regulations, title 17, section 94512(c)(1).
Puracy cooperated fully with CARB to resolve this matter. To come into compliance, the product with excess VOCs was discontinued and Puracy complied with the product dating reporting requirements. The penalty in this case is a total of $6,000 for excess VOC emissions and for failing to meet the product dating reporting requirements. The full penalty amount will be deposited into CARB’s Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California’s air quality.
