Location Certificate for Paint Booth

Why are paint and panel shops subject to Location Compliance Certificates?

Paint and Panel Shops are subject to Compliance certification because:


They hold quantities of hazardous substances above threshold quantities.


Here are the threshold quantities that trigger Location Compliance Certification:

  • Class 2.1.1A LPG 100 kg

  • Class 3.1B solvents/paints 100 L in closed containers of more than 5 L per container

  • Class 3.1B solvents/paints 250 L in closed containers of less than 5 L per container

  • Class 3.1C solvents/paints 500 L in closed containers of more than 5 L per container

  • Class 3.1C solvents/paints 1500 L in closed containers of less than 5 L per container

  • Class 5.1.2A Oxygen 200 m3 permanent gas


Paint and Panel Shops are not subject to Compliance certification because:

  • They have a spray booth (Open or closed)

  • They have tunnel operation booths

  • They have a mixing bench

  • They have a gun-wash

  • They have a solvent recovery machine

You can see that certification is about hazardous substances and the quantity held on site.
