Register of car sprayers and dry cleaners using solvents in industrial process

Control of emissions from solvents Under two pieces of legislation, the Air Monitoring and Noise Control Unit of Dublin City Council is involved in the assessment of applications for Certificates of compliance/approval in relation to solvent use. This dataset comprises two spreadsheets; the VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) Register and DECO (Paints) Register, which contain names and addresses of the registered car sprayers and dry cleaners in Dublin City and expiry dates of certificates.'The EUROPEAN UNION (INSTALLATIONS AND ACTIVITIES USING ORGANIC SOLVENTS) REGULATIONS 2012 sets controls on emissions of VOCs from various commercial activities including dry cleaners, sheet metal work, manufacturers of metal gates and fencing, electronics manufacturing and pharmaceutical manufacture etc. Many of these types of business may be included or exempted under these Regulations depending on the quantity of solvent used.'Under the EUROPEAN UNION (PAINTS, VARNISHES, VEHICLE REFINISHING PRODUCTS AND ACTIVITIES) REGULATIONS 2012 , all businesses which carry out vehicle refinishing i.e. car spray painting, must be registered with the relevant Local Authority. Inspections of VOC premises are carried out and if the Environmental Health Officer is satisfied, then a Certificate of Compliance is issued to the company.
