Collision Industry Environment Meeting Planned for Burlington, Ontario

An evening workshop detailing impact of environment-driven changes to refinish product regulations is being planned for Burlington, Ont.
Organized by the Collision Industry Information Assistance Group and the Hamilton District Autobody Repair Association for February 28, the event will cover Environment Canadas proposed new rules on paint coatings that will change the products bodyshops buy and how they will apply them in the future.
Few of the products that shops are currently are familiar with will be meet the new regulations. For some shops, changeover will be easy; other shops may decide to upgrade or purchase new equipment.
New production equipment, products and pollution prevention assistance will also be on display at this workshop. Attendees will also learn about the requirements for a spray booth permit, waste reduction tips and how to reduce costs with good environmental management.
Environment Canada is interested in industry feedback on the proposed content for the regulations. This is a chance to learn the facts, what it means to a business and be heard on the possible impact of these changes to improve air quality.
