The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), under its Collision Repair Campaign (CRC), has released a free 19-minute training video starring NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon to familiarize collision repair facilities with the requirements of new paint regulations, effective Jan. 11, 2010.
All collision repair shops must comply by the January deadline, and they must submit a Notification of Compliance by March 11, 2011.
The new Auto Refinishing Regulation regulates national emission standards for area sources engaged in paint stripping and various surface coating operations.
Developed under the CRC, the video focuses on helping collision repair shops achieve meaningful emissions reductions. The campaign is designed to provide shops with the opportunity attain early compliance of the new regulation.
The EPA’s Holly Wilson presented the video at the 2009 BodyShop Business waterborne conference.
