CalRecycle must promulgate regulations to effectively implement its responsibilities under AB 2398, California's new law covering product stewardship for carpets. The topics of discussion at this informal workshop include 1) stewardship plan approval criteria, 2) a process for CalRecycle to accept payment for its services related to oversight and enforcement activities, 3) the establishment of penalty ranges that reflect a progressive enforcement approach, and 4) criteria for acceptance of annual reports. The workshop will provide information on these topics and seek stakeholder comments.
