Amrep Settlement 2006
$48,662 in Fines Paid by Amrep
As part of a negotiated settlement this past March, Amrep, Inc. committed to continue their self-audit process and report any additional violations. On April 7, 2006 they informed ARB staff that between December 31, 2002 and January 2006, they sold cans of non-complying tire sealant and inflators that exceeded the 20 percent VOC limit. In addition, they indicated that after January 1, 2005, they sold cans of non-complying aerosol rubber and vinyl protectants that exceeded the 10 percent VOC limit. As a result, a new settlement agreement was executed on May 8, 2006 which calls for Amrep, Inc. to pay an additional $48,662 in penalties.
