§ 17981. Failure To Meet Recycled Plastic Postconsumer Material (RPPCM) Content Requirements.
(a) I am a manufacturer of regulated trash bags. What must I do if I do not meet the regulatory requirements for any reporting period? If you are unable to obtain sufficient amounts of RPPCM within any reporting period because (1) it did not meet the RPPCM quality standards promulgated by the Board or (2) it was not available within a reasonable period of time, you must certify that fact to the Board.
(b) Must I provide documentation if I am requesting an exemption due to the lack of availability or due to the low quality of RPPCM? Yes, required documentation to support as claim for a quality exemption may be found in Section 17982(f) and required documentation to support a claim for an availability exemption may be found in Section 17983(b).
(c) Must records be kept to document a claim? Yes, records must be kept to assist you in documenting your certification. (See Section 17983.5 of this Article).
