Auto Body Refinishing


EPA's Mid-Atlantic Region has outreach materials on a new set of requirements that may impact you. See Federal Register - 40 CFR Part 63 Subpart HHHHHH (we call it 6H) (PDF, 32 pp., 299 KB, About PDF) covers paint stripping and surface coating operations, including spray coating done at auto body shops. We are here to help you understand and implement the rule. We're looking forward to working with auto body shops, trade associations, paint vendors, state and local agencies, and communities to provide information.

The information and links provided below should help you get a start on understanding the requirements of the 6H regulation.  But we are here if you have any additional questions, or if you would like to set up a workshop.  We’re happy to provide information and materials and to help you comply with the training requirements of the regulation.

For more information, contact Cathleen Kennedy (kennedy.cathleen@epa.gov) at 215-814-2746.
