New York has updated their VOC limits for consumer products.
These new limits become Effective January 1,2022. Below is a list of product classes with the old and new VOC limits.
All inventory manufactured prior to the January 1, 2022 date has an unlimited sell through.
Most Restricted States:
California,  Colorado,  Connecticut,  Deleware,  Maryland,  New Hampshire,  New Jersey,  New York,  Utah
VOC stands for volatile organic compound. Organic compounds contain hydrogen, oxygen and carbon. Organic compounds
range from low volatility (slow evaporating) naturally occurring chemicals like olive oil to high volatility (fast evaporating) ethanol (ethyl alcohol).
The majority of states regulate VOCs because the release of these into the environment can, under certain conditions,
contribute to the formation of ground level ozone. Ozone while a good thing in the upper atmosphere is a bad thing at ground level, causing respiratory distress and even death for those members of the population weakened by respiratory illness or age. The Environmental Protection Agency, in conjunction with state agencies throughout the USA, has set ozone standards. It is these standards that are driving states to regulate VOCs in an effort to decrease the high ozone levels.
Our policy is to decrease VOCs to zero in all our products as quickly as technically feasible. Many of our lubricants and cleaners are already zero-VOC, well ahead of federal and state requirements.

No, some are regulated and some are not. There are organic volatiles that are exempted specifically because they either do not contribute to ozone formation (as is the case with acetone) or they are of such low volatility that they do not react to form ozone (as
would be the case with low vapor pressure VOC [LVP-VOCs]). The VOC regulations (USEPA, CARB, OTC, and LADCO) spell out quite clearly what constitutes a VOC that is exempt from regulation (usually referred to as “VOC exempt compounds”). LVP-VOCs are defined by their physical properties and are characterized by their low volatility as defined by vapor pressure, initial boiling point, or number of carbon atoms in each molecule.

No, some regulations are designed solely to regulate VOC emissions from paints and coatings. These coatings
VOC regulations often rely on complicated MIR (maximum incremental reactivity) calculations to determine a product’s VOC compliance. Most BBI products are regulated under consumer product VOC regulations that establish maximum VOC levels based on percent by weight.

Chlorinated compounds such as perchloroethylene (tetrachloroethylene) and methylene chloride are VOC exempt, but often regulated (and banned) under other regulations. It’s important to remember that the bans on chlorinated products in many states are based upon health considerations and not VOC emissions reductions.
