Workshops on auto refinish coating standards

The Air Resources Board (ARB) is holding a second set of public workshops in Fresno and Oakland on the development of a Suggested Control Measures (SCM) for automotive refinish coatings. 

The workshops will discuss the ongoing rulemaking effort and draft regulatory language. The proposed rules would set a tougher standard for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) than are in place today and would standardize rules throughout the state. A copy of the draft regulatory language and workshop agenda can be obtained prior to the workshops at www.arb.ca.gov/coatings/autorefin/scm/sc m.htm .

The workshops will be held on August 9 from 10-12 at the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District in Fresno and on August 11 from 10-12 at the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board in Oakland.
