Document Description
This is a rule development project to amend existing District Rule 4605 (Aerospace Assembly and Component Coating Operations). Adoption of the proposed amendments would lower emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from coatings and solvents used in the aerospace industry and two specialty coating categories in Rule 4605. Other amendments are clerical in nature; updating test methods as required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, adding definitions, and providing clarity to the rule.

Reasons for Exemption
General Exemption The project is an amendment to existing District Rule 4605 (Aerospace Assembly and Component Coating Operations). Adoption of the proposed amendments would lower emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from coating and solvents used in the aerospace industry and two specialty coating categories in Rule 4605. As discussed in the Staff Report, incorporated herein by reference, there are no foreseeable changes in operating practices resulting from implementation of these changes that would impact environmental resources, other than air quality. Reducing VOC emissions have a positive impact on air quality, therefore District staff concludes that there is no substantial evidence in the whole record before the District that the proposed amendments to Rule 4605 would cause any adverse effects on the environment. The District finds that the project is exempt per the general rule that CEQA applies only to projects which have the potential for causing a significant effect on the environment (CCR S 15061(b)(3)).
