Second Workshop Offered to Help Auto Body Shops with New Regulations
Free Workshop November 20 in Bow Offered by DES, NH Small Business Development Center and the NH Automobile Dealers Association

Concord, NH – On January 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. To help facilities understand these new requirements, the N.H. Department of Environmental Services, the N.H. Small Business Development Center and the N.H. Automobile Dealer’s Association will hold a second free morning workshop on November 20 in Bow.

Agenda topics include an overview on the new auto body 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.

Invitees include owners and operators of auto body and collision repair facilities, and 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 November 13. To register, contact Sara Johnson at or (603)271-1379.
