Other Web Resources

Common Coating Page OAQPS with assistance of the Association of Industrial Metalizers, Coaters and Laminators (AIMCAL), developed a Surface Coating website which provides links to documents and resources that could be useful to those subject to any one of the surface coating rules. The webpage includes a range of materials from presentation materials to technical guides to help users more readily find information pertaining to surface coating operations.

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 Provisions 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, the 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.
