RCMA Launches Subscription Service to VOC Regulation Maps

Published February 13, 2013
The Roof Coatings Manufacturers Association (RCMA) is offering the opportunity to purchase annual subscriptions to interactive Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) Regulation Maps that track the rules governing Architectural and Industrial Maintenance (AIM) Coatings as well as Adhesives and Sealants in US states and California Air Districts. Access to the VOC Regulation Maps is included with annual membership in the RCMA, but beginning in 2013 subscription opportunities will be made available for non-members.

The VOC Regulation Maps have been developed to allow the user to click on a state or region to view select portions of the rule, including VOC limits for several product categories, labeling and recordkeeping requirements, volume exemptions, and active links to the full text of the applicable rule. The maps are updated frequently to reflect the latest regulatory news across the country.

Specific maps for California track AIM Coatings and Adhesives & Sealants in each air district, and include links to each district’s rule, California Air Resources Board (CARB) district page, and proprietary district page. Links are also provided to the model rules and suggested control measures from CARB, the Ozone Transport Commission (OTC), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

VOC content limits for a variety of industrial and consumer products are regulated on federal, state, and regional levels. The RCMA VOC Regulation Maps provide a useful tool for manufacturers, applicators, and suppliers of AIM coatings, adhesives, and sealants to ensure that products adhere to the guidelines of various regions.

“Our members have found the VOC Regulation Maps to be critical tools for their businesses,” said John Ferraro, RCMA general manager. “Keeping apace of the various rules governing VOC limits is a concern frequently voiced by members of the coatings industry, and RCMA is pleased to provide this tool to the industry to help them navigate the regulations.”
