Oceana USA Inc. Settlement
Oceana USA Inc. Settles For $3,000
In May 2022, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) reached a settlement with Oceana USA Inc. (Oceana), with its principal location in Irwindale, California, in the amount of $3,000 for the company’s violations of CARB’s air quality regulations.
CARB staff conducted an investigation that revealed Oceana sold, supplied, and/or offered for sale a personal fragrance product for use in California containing a concentration of volatile organic compounds (VOC) exceeding the standard specified in the Consumer Products Regulation (Cal. Code Regs., tit.17, § 94507 et. seq.). The VOC violation resulted in 0.001 tons of excess VOC emissions.
The 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. Oceana fully cooperated with CARB to resolve this matter and ceased their sale of the noncompliant products in California.
