Automotive Collision Repair Facilities
All automotive collision repair facilities must comply with federal and state environmental regulations pertaining to air quality, water quality, and solid, liquid, and hazardous wastes. The Department of Natural Resources and Environment's (DNRE's) Environmental Assistance Program created the Michigan Auto Body Environmental Compliance Workbook to help shops comply with these regulations. The workbook contains a series of questions that allow a facility to conduct their own self-audit. Embedded in the workbook are audit questions that require "yes" or "no" answers about whether or not your facility is currently complying with the applicable environmental requirements. A blank "Return-to-Compliance Plan" form is provided to document non-compliance issues that will need corrective action. These forms will also allow you to assign Return-to-Compliance tasks to your employees to make the corrective action.
We are constantly looking for ways to improve our outreach and value your feedback on this Workbook. Please take a few minutes to fill out this quick online survey.
For questions regarding this workbook, contact Dave Fiedler, Environmental Assistance Program at (800) 662-9278 or email@example.com
Why should your facility perform a self-audit?
NEW FEDERAL AIR TOXICS STANDARD
On January 9, 2008, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency published a final rule affecting all automotive collision repair facilities across the country. The rule contains enclosure, type and cleaning of spray guns, training, notification, and recordkeeping provisions. For more information, go the Paint Stripping and Miscellaneous Surface Coating Operations at Area Sources Web page for more information.
