ARTICLE 4. Sandblasting [41901 - 41905]
  ( Article 4 added by Stats. 1975, Ch. 957. )


The committee shall include nine members appointed by the chairman of the state board as follows: three contractors licensed pursuant to Chapter 9 (commencing with Section 7000) of Division 3 of the Business and Professions Code for sandblasting services, three members from public entities which contract for such services, and three members from district boards. The committee shall also include two public members, one of whom shall be appointed by the Senate Rules Committee and one by the Speaker of the Assembly.

The committee shall select a chairman from its membership, and he shall serve at the pleasure of the committee.

(Added by Stats. 1975, Ch. 957.)


In developing the standards, the committee shall take into consideration the need to reduce air pollution from all sources and the need to also continue sandblasting operations as a means of corrosion control. The committee shall examine present sandblasting procedures and equipment, and determine where improvements can be made so that the standards reflect the strictest standards that can be reasonably achieved.

(Added by Stats. 1975, Ch. 957.)


Thirty days after the adoption of air pollution standards for sandblasting operations, the committee shall adjourn. Thereafter, it may meet at least once annually upon the call of the chairman of the committee to review the standards in light of changes in sandblasting technology.

(Added by Stats. 1975, Ch. 957.)


The standards shall be statewide, and no rule or regulation of any district that is applicable to sandblasting operations shall be stricter or less strict than the standards adopted by the state board pursuant to the recommendations of the committee.

(Added by Stats. 1975, Ch. 957.)


The standards, however, shall not supersede any rule or regulation of any district governing permanent sandblasting operations or equipment, which rule or regulation was in effect on January 1, 1974.

For purposes of this section, “permanent sandblasting operations or equipment” means sandblasting operations conducted, or sandblasting equipment located, in a building which is used, in whole or in part, for sandblasting operations.
