Auto Body ERP
In this session Renee
Bashel will be presenting the results of the Region 5 Autobody Environmental
Results Program conducted from 2009 to 2012. We measured the change in
performance for autobody shops in our urban counties with respect to
compliance with the Area Source NESHAP in 40 CFR Part 63, subpart HHHHHH, or
as we have all come to know it, "6H." We measured their level of
compliance with 6H before the SBEAPs provided compliance assistance, and
then again after the compliance deadline in 2011 through inspections
conducted by EPA Region 5 air inspectors. When did the shops improve
the most? How did compliance assistance play a role? How did
this partnership between SBEAPs and EPA staff work? Please join us for
this session if you would like answers to these questions and a few others.
We hope to have one or more of the EPA Region 5 staff who were involved to
offer their thoughts on the outcome as well.
