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 rule contains enclosure, type and cleaning of spray guns, training, notification, and recordkeeping provisions.
