Abstract Consumer products are potentially significant sources of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which contribute to formation of ozone in photochemical smog. Currently, the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has no approved method for measuring the VOC content of consumer products. EPA has made changes to Method 24 (for coating VOC measurement) to adapt it to measurement of VOC in consumer products (including the contents of aerosol cans). For its regulatory process, EPA needed information on the repeatability (precision of analyses performed by a single laboratory) and reproducibility (precision of analyses performed by different laboratories) of the modified method. This report describes an interlaboratory study that was performed to obtain this information. The precision of the modified method for consumer product samples is similar to the precision of EPA Method 24 applied to surface coatings.
