November 17, 1999
I am writing to invite you to a public workshop being held to discuss proposed changes to the Air Resources Board’s (ARB) Suggested Control Measure for Architectural Coatings (SCM). The SCM is the model rule upon which California air pollution control districts’ rules have been based.
The purpose of the workshop is to discuss concepts for the averaging compliance option and to discuss proposed changes to the SCM. The meeting agenda is enclosed. The proposed SCM will be mailed at least 10 days prior to the workshop, and will also be available on our website at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/coatings/arch/arch.htm.
The date, time, and location of the meeting are as follows:
At the September 8, 1999, workshop, a request was made for a discussion on how an averaging compliance option would work on a statewide basis. At the workshop we will present an overview of the Alternative Control Plan which is an averaging provision in the ARB’s Consumer Product Program. This will be followed by an open discussion of averaging concepts. After the averaging discussion, proposed changes to the SCM will be presented for comment.
We are continuing to meet with interested parties to discuss individual concerns. If you would like to comment on the SCM or schedule a meeting with us, please contact Mr. Jim Nyarady, Manager, Strategy Evaluation Section. Mr. Nyarady’s telephone number is (916) 322-8273 and his electronic mail address is email@example.com .
We look forward to your participation in this workshop. There is no need to notify us regarding your plans to attend. This facility is accessible to persons with disabilities.
