WASHINGTON - Nearly every federal, state and local government that has regulated architectural and industrial maintenance (AIM) coatings in the past is considering further reductions. Several additional states are working on new regulations as well.

In order to help members keep track of all of the AIM regulations, NPCA has developed a comprehensive and detailed AIM Coatings Regulatory Reference page on its website, located at www.paint.org/member/aim/index.cfm.

The site provides an overview and status of both U.S. and several international AIM regulations. In addition, the site includes a table that compares the various key provisions of the Ozone Transport Commission (OTC) state AIM regulations.
