Example Notices and Reports

Example notification and report forms have been developed for sections 63.9 and 63.10 of part 63, Subpart A, General Provisions. You can find these example forms by going to the General Provisions rule page.

Although most standards reference sections 63.9 and 63.10 of the General Pprovisions for some or all of their notification and reporting requirements, please be aware that these General Provisions example forms are not intended to exactly match all the requirements of a specific standard. Specific standards may include or exclude General Provision requirements or can require additional information beyond Subpart A. For this reason, these example report forms developed under Subpart A should be treated as examples only and may be useful to users as a starting point for developing report forms that are facility- and MACT-specific.

Compliance and Enforcement Information

Applicability Determination Index (ADI).  The ADI is maintained by EPA's Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance (OECA) and provides a data base of memoranda dealing with applicability issues.  The database is searchable by Subpart.

EPA's Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance (OECA) has created several compliance assistance centers that service the coating industry, including the  Paints and Coatings Resource Center (PCRC) and the National Metal Finishing Resource Center (NMFRC). New centers are added periodically. The Compliance Assistance Center main page lists all centers currently available and planned with a brief description of what type of information the center provides.

State Programs

The Environmental Council of the States. Exit EPA disclaimer   The website provides state delegation information for environmental programs. To view delegation information for a specific state or for a specific program, go to http://www.ecos.org.


Coating Alternatives Guide (CAGE). CAGE is a pollution prevention tool which provides information on low-emitting alternative coating technologies to coatings users. CAGE currently addresses alternative, low-emitting coatings for metal and plastic part coating operations, but, future versions will address alternative coatings for wood, and other substrates.

Trade Associations

National Coil Coating Association.  Exit EPA disclaimer   The National Coil Coating Association is an industry trade organization representing the coil coating industry. NCCA represents both the companies that coat the metal ("coil coaters"), and various suppliers including the leading steel, aluminum, coatings manufacturers, as well as chemical, pretreatment and equipment suppliers that provide the necessary services to produce and further process prepainted coil.

Steel Deck Institute.  Exit EPA disclaimer   The Steel Deck Institute was formed to uniformity to design, manufacture, quality control and construction practices applicable to cold-formed steel decking. The SDI website is intended to keep designers and constructors up to date on deck design and construction and to provide information about the SDI and the member companies.

Aluminum Association.  Exit EPA disclaimer   The Aluminum Association, Inc. is the trade association for producers of primary aluminum, recyclers and semi-fabricated aluminum products, as well as suppliers to the industry. Based in Washington, D.C., with offices in Detroit, Michigan, the Association provides leadership to the industry through its programs and services which aim to enhance aluminum's position in a world of proliferating materials, increase its use as the "material of choice," remove impediments to its fullest use, and assist in achieving the industry's environmental, societal, and economic objectives. Member companies operate about 200 plants in the U.S and many conduct business worldwide.
