Dry Cleaning Program - Regulatory Information
On October 14, 1993, the California Air Resources Board (the Board or ARB) adopted two regulations that affect dry cleaners in California. Those regulations are codified in Title 17 of the California Code of Regulations, sections 93109 and 93110. Section 93109, the Airborne Toxic Control Measure for Emissions of Perchloroethylene from Dry Cleaning Operations (Dry Cleaning ATCM), sets forth the equipment, operations and maintenance, record keeping, and reporting requirements for Perchloroethylene (perc) dry cleaning operations. Section 93110, the Environmental Training Program for Perchloroethylene Dry Cleaning Operations (Environmental Training Program), sets forth the criteria for the ARB to approve persons or organizations to provide the training programs.
On January 25, 2007, the Board approved amendments to the Dry Cleaning ATCM and the adoption of requirements for Perc Manufacturers and distributors. The ATCM for Emissions of Perchloroethylene Associated with Dry Cleaning Operations and Requirements for Perchloroethylene Manufacturers and Distributors will over time phase out the use of Perc dry cleaning machines and related equipment by January 1, 2023
