San Joaquin Valley Unified Air Pollution Control District Rule Development: Amendments to Rule 4612
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The District has adopted amendments to District Rule 4612. The source category of Motor Vehicle and Mobile Equipment Coating Operations currently includes operations that apply, supply, sell, offer for sale, or solicit the application of VOC-containing coatings used in the finishing or refinishing of vehicles and equipment, and their parts and components. This category also includes the organic solvent cleaning, and the storage and disposal of all solvents and waste solvent materials associated with such coating operations. Rule 4602 (Motor Vehicle and Mobile Equipment Operations) was adopted in 1991. In September 2006, Rule 4602 was updated and superseded by Rule 4612, effective on January 1, 2009, in order to incorporate all of the elements of California Air Resources Board (ARB) Suggested Control Measure (SCM) for this source category. However, since the implementation of current rule language for Rule 4612 it has been determined that specific sections need updating in order to remove redundant language, clarify the intent of the section, and align the rule with requirements previously required.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Type, Section or Code
21080(b)(1); 15268
Reasons for Exemption
The project is an amendment to existing District Rule 4612. The District has no discretion in deciding whether to incorporate said Health and Safety Code sections into its rule and, thus, approval by the District's Governing Board is a ministerial action. Section 21080 of the Public Resource Code exempts from the application of CEQA those projects over which public agencies exercise only ministerial authority.
