The Bay Area Air Quality Management District periodically holds classes to educate regulated industries about compliance with air quality regulations. Through these Industry Compliance Schools (ICS), the Air District provides:
• Information on public health impacts of air pollution
• Compliance assistance tools and tips
• Easy-to-understand materials on District regulations
• “Hands-on” environmental training and expertise
The Air District focuses ICS on small businesses to help them comply with air quality regulations. The courses are free, foreign translators can be made available and the courses are held at convenient locations throughout the Bay Area. Attendees are provided plain language instructions and useful course materials, including sample recordkeeping logs, self-inspection booklets or other applicable hand-outs. The Air District has developed a financial incentive small business program which allows a discount on District-registration requirements for air pollution equipment provided the participant attends the class and registers during the school.
