Regulation Authority :
R.I. Gen. Laws § 42-17.1-2(19)
R.I. Gen. Laws Chapter 23-23
R.I. Gen. Laws Chapter 42-35
Purpose and Reason :
Part 33 limits volatile organic compound emissions from the architectural and industrial maintenance (AIM) coatings. The Department of Environmental Management, Office of Air Resources is proposing to establish volatile organic compound (VOC) standards for 11 new AIM coating categories, remove VOC standards for 17 AIM coating categories and strengthen VOC standards for 24 AIM coating categories, consistent with regional emissions limitations for such categories. Additionally, the proposed amendments incorporate new definitions and modify several existing definitions for clarity. The regulation has been updated to current RI Code of Regulations format which required the addition of an incorporated materials section.
