Title 8, California Code of Regulations 5154.1 was changed effective 
1/1/08 to require that lab hoods have a "quantitative airflow monitor that 
continuously indicates whether air is flowing into the exhaust system 
during operation". A variety of gauges can be used to accomplish this.

There is no federal requirement that I'm aware of.

Could you site the requirement for fume hood monitors.  We are located
in New York State (upstate) and are not aware of such a requirement.
