RENO, NEVADA – January 16th – GRC-Pirk Management, managers of www.haps6h.com, announced they will provide a complimentary template along with telephone consultation to collision repair centers subject to the annual notification requirements under EPA Regulation 40 CFR 63 Subpart 6H: Paint Stripping and Miscellaneous Surface Coating Operations at Area Sources.
The firm’s Senior Environmental Engineer, Shannon McDaniel stated, “The EPA requires all spray coating operations to comply with the NESHAP 6H Rule, meaning most body shops must file an annual notification. In support of the EPA Collision Repair Campaign, we are helping shops navigate through the confounding language and confusing requirements of the compliance codes, until the reporting deadline of February 29, 2012.”
Steven E. Schillinger, GRC-Pirk President said, “Although the January 10, 2011 compliance deadline has long since passed, spray coating operations are still required to report compliance or risk violation. By not reporting compliance, there is a risk of violating the Clean Air Act.” Schillinger continued, “Knowing how to follow the HAPs 6H requirements can benefit those working in the collision repair industry, both economically and environmentally.”
