Regulatory Navigation Tool: NESHAP Subpart 6H - Paint Stripping and Miscellaneous Surface Coating Operations at Area Sources

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants, Subpart HHHHHH (6H), affects numerous autobody refinishing shops nationwide. If a shop can demonstrate they meet the criteria, they can petition EPA for an exemption from the rule.

The new 6H Regulatory Navigation tool is now available to help autobody shops determine if they can be exempt from the rule. EPA’s Regulation Navigation (Reg Nav) tools help owners and operators of facilities in certain industries determine the requirements of specific air quality regulations. Reg Nav tools are online and interactive, and use the information entered to assess potential regulatory requirements. 

Reg Nav tools do not store or save information, so you must print or save any output that you want to use or reference.
