    Rule 1106 establishes VOC limits for marine and pleasure craft coatings and Rule 1107 establishes VOC limits for coatings used on metal parts and products. Proposed Amended Rules 1106 and 1107 will remove references to ASTM D7767 “Standard Test Method to Measure Volatiles from Radiation Curable Acrylate Monomers, Oligomers and Blends and Thin Coatings Made from Them” to address U.S. EPA’s proposed limited disapproval. Since ASTM D7767-11 is not approved by U.S. EPA, this test method cannot be used to enforce a SIP approved rule. Proposed Amended Rule 1106 will also remove references to Elastomeric Adhesives and Metallic Heat Resistant Coatings, as recommended by the U.S. EPA to align Rule 1106 with the U.S. EPA 1996 Marine Coatings Control Techniques Guidelines. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Determining that Proposed Amended Rule 1106 – Marine and Pleasure Craft Coatings and Proposed Amended Rule 1107 – Coating of Metal Parts and Products, are exempt from the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act; and 2) Amending Rules 1106 and 1107.

    Rule 1118 establishes requirements to monitor and record data on refinery and refinery related flaring operations, and to control and minimize flaring and flare related emissions. To address U.S. EPA’s limited disapproval of Rule 1118, Proposed Amended Rule 1118 will modify an existing requirement, to require with the Executive Officer, ASTM methods must be approved by U.S. EPA and CARB. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Determining that Proposed Amended Rule 1118 – Control of Emissions from Refinery Flares, is exempt from the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act; and 2) Amending Rule 1118.
