May 30, 2013

The Roof Coatings Manufacturers Association (RCMA), a national trade association representing manufacturers of cold applied protective roof coatings and cements and suppliers of products, is hosting a webinar on volatile organic compound (VOC) regulations that govern architectural and industrial maintenance (AIM) coatings on Tuesday, June 18th at 2:00 PM ET.

This one-hour session will provide a comprehensive overview of the VOC regulations that affect the roof coatings industry, will review the regulatory bodies of importance, and will feature the latest updates on state and air district rule adoptions. Designed for VOC novices and veterans alike, this webinar will be a great opportunity for businesses to brush up on the essential knowledge necessary to be compliant with VOC regulations and to prepare for future rule changes. This event will be free for all RCMA members, but pre-registration is required. The price for non-member registration is $50.

The webinar will provide background and updates on the California Air Resource Board (CARB), the Ozone Transport Commission (OTC), the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD), and other relevant regulatory bodies. It will teach attendees the main features and differences of various AIM coatings rules, including the EPA National Rule, the OTC Phase I and Phase II Model Rules, the CARB 2000 and 2007 Suggested Control Measures (SCMs), and SCAQMD Rule 1113 and Rule 314. The webinar will also share resources available for staying current with the latest VOC regulations, such as the RCMA VOC regulation maps and the RCMA VOC Task Force.
