ASC Adds VOC Compliance Tool to Its Website
Www.adhesives.org and www.sealants.org Provides Guidance on Industry Regulations
April 10, 2014 – Bethesda, MD –Finding the latest state and local regulations pertaining to volatile organic compound (VOC) limits for adhesives and sealants just a got a little bit easier with the addition of a new interactive tool recently added to the revamped Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) Regulations section of the adhesives.org and sealants.org website.
Using the map of the United States, EH&S personnel can access any state’s current regulations addressing VOC limits for either industrial or consumer adhesive and sealant products. The page also offers access to the U.S. EPA’s national rule for consumer adhesives and sealants, which represents the limits for states that have not adopted their own regulations.
The page also offers access to the U.S. EPA’s Control Technology Guideline, which provides assistance to state or local air pollution control authorities in developing approaches for controlling VOC emissions from miscellaneous industrial adhesive application processes.
“Adhesive and sealant formulators, their raw materials suppliers, as well as their customers all need to understand the ever-changing VOC regulatory landscape,” advises Mark Collatz, Director of Regulatory Affairs for the Adhesive and Sealant Council. “This easy to use tool will help professionals across the supply chain do just that. It serves as a benefit to both veterans of the industry regulatory compliance and also to those just getting familiar with the basics of VOC regulations.”
