Abrasive Blasting Program - Certification Executive Orders and Certification Lists

This page last reviewed November 17, 2014



Executive Order G-14-083 lists abrasives currently certified by the Air Resources Board (ARB) for permissible dry blasting done outside of a permanent building in accordance with California Code of Regulations, title 17, section 92530.  The certification of the abrasives listed on this Executive Order will expire in either 2015 or 2016, depending on when the abrasive was certified.  New Executive Orders will be issued as appropriate.

Below is a list of all Executive Orders issued certifying abrasives for permissible dry blasting done outside of a permanent building in accordance with California Code of Regulations, title 17, section 92530.  Although these Executive Orders were superceded by more recent Executive Orders, the abrasives listed on them may be used until gone.  An abrasive that is sold by its manufacturer or vendor during the period the abrasive is certified is certified for use until the abrasive is gone. The regulations do not require that the abrasive be used only during the period it is certified.  Advisory #164 addresses this issue.

If the referenced Executive Order is not available online or if you have questions on the Abrasive Blasting Certification Program, please contact Kathryn Gugeler at (916) 322-0221.
