Buy Clean California Implementation Update

There have been updates posted regarding the implementation of Buy Clean California - Buy Clean California Act


July 27, 2021: A new assembly bill (AB-137, Sections 23-25) was signed into law on July 16, 2021 extending the implementation date of the BCCA.

New key legislation dates:

  • January 1, 2022: DGS will publish the maximum acceptable GWP for eligible materials.
  • July 1, 2022: Awarding authorities will gauge GWP compliance of eligible materials with the required Environmental Product Declaration (EPD).

GWP limits previously posted on this webpage are no longer in effect.

Does anyone on the forum have insights as to the change and if there is any planned change to the methods for determining GWP limits?
