Proposed Part 205, Architectural and Industrial Maintenance (AIM) Coatings

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is revising 6 NYCRR Part 205 "Architectural and Industrial Maintenance (AIM) Coatings," and Part 200, "General Provisions." AIM coatings, such as paint, are applied to stationary structures or their appurtenances at the site of installation, portable buildings at the site of installation, pavements, or curbs. The purpose of this rulemaking is to reduce emissions from AIM coatings by reducing the volatile organic compound (VOC) content limits for some coating categories. In addition, this revision removes the quart exemption.

Comment period closed.
