Consumer Products Laboratory Test Methods
CARB Method 310 applies to the determination of the percent of weight of volatile organic compounds (VOC) in consumer products, antiperspirant and deodorant products, and reactive organic compounds (ROC) in aerosol coatings products, as defined in Title 17, California Code of Regulations, Sections 94500 et. seq. The method determines the VOC content in a product and the presence of any compounds prohibited by CARB regulations ("prohibited compounds"). Components of the product that do not meet the definition of a VOC or are exempted by CARB regulations for a specific product category ("exempt compounds") are subtracted from the total volatile material to determine the final VOC content for the product.
