Workshop on New EPA Paint Regulations Offered in New Hampshire


On Jan. 9, 2010, all facilities that perform paint stripping or apply spray coatings to metal must provide written notification of these activities to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). To help facilities understand these new requirements, the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services and the New Hampshire Small Business Development Center will hold a free workshop on Nov. 13 in Concord.

Topics to be covered include an overview on the new autobody refinishing rule – National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP): Paint Stripping and Miscellaneous Surface Coating Operations at Area Sources – and cover the hazardous waste requirements for management and storage of waste paint and thinner. Nationwide, the EPA’s Collision Repair Campaign is working to educate shop owners on the new rule.

Owners and operators of collision repair facilities, those who work in industries that have metal coating operations, municipal officials such as building inspectors, fire chiefs and public health officers who routinely visit these facilities to verify compliance with local rules and regulations should also attend.


Registration deadline is Nov. 9.
