The purpose of this calendar is to assist Georgia drycleaners in complying with air quality and hazardous waste requirements specific to operations using perchloroethylene (perc).
The calendar includes helpful information on regulatory requirements and includes tools for recording information pertaining to perc usage, vapor monitoring, and inspection and repair of dry cleaning equipment as required by air pollution requirements. At the back of the calendar, guidance and recordkeeping forms for hazardous waste management for dry cleaners are provided.
The information recorded on this calendar should be used to demonstrate compliance with these specific requirements and should be retained at your facility for at least five years.
In response to the EPA Cross-Media Electronic Reporting Rule requiring states to provide compliance records similar to the new California Environmental Reporting System regulation, the Collision Industry Electronic Commerce Association (CIECA) has assembled a new Combined Environmental Reporting (CER) committee to develop reporting standards specific to the collision repair industry. The Committee is made up of body shop owners, paint manufacturers, and insurance company executives together with regulatory professionals from the EPA Small Business Environmental Assistance Program (SBEAP).
