SECTION 25910-25912



25910.  The commission shall, by regulation adopted no later than
July 1, 1978, establish minimum standards for the amount of
additional insulation (expressed in terms of R-value) installed in
existing buildings. One year after the adoption of those standards,
no insulation shall be installed in any existing building by a
contractor unless the contractor certifies to the customer in writing
that the amount of insulation (expressed in terms of R-value) meets
or exceeds the minimum amount established by the standards. The
minimum standards may vary for different types of buildings or
building occupancies and different climate zones in the state. The
minimum standards shall be economically feasible in that the
resultant savings in energy procurement costs shall be greater than
the cost of the insulation to the customer amortized over the useful
life of the insulation.


25911.  The State Energy Resources Conservation and Development
Commission may adopt regulations pertaining to urea formaldehyde foam
insulation materials as are reasonably necessary to protect the
public health and safety. These regulations may include, but are not
limited to, prohibition of the manufacture, sale, or installation of
urea formaldehyde foam insulation, requirements for safety notices to
consumers, certification of installers, and specification of
installation practices. Regulations adopted pursuant to this section
shall be promulgated after public hearings in accordance with Chapter
3.5 (commencing with Section 11340) of Part 1 of Division 3 of Title
2 of the Government Code. Any regulation adopted by the commission
to prohibit the sale and installation of urea formaldehyde foam
insulation shall be based upon a record of scientific evidence which
demonstrates the need for the prohibition in order to protect the
public health and safety.



25912.  Prior to adopting any regulation which causes a prohibition
on the sale and installation of urea formaldehyde foam insulation,
the commission shall consult with, and solicit written comments from,
all of the following:
   (a) Federal and state agencies with appropriate scientific staffs,
including, but not limited to, the State Department of Health
Services, the National Academy of Sciences, the United States
Department of Housing and Urban Development, the United States
Department of Energy, and the United States Consumer Product Safety
Commission.
   (b) Universities and public and private scientific organizations.
