Dry-Cleaning Solvent Cleanup Act Program - Compliance Unit
The DSCA Compliance Unit administers a compliance inspection and enforcement program to ensure active dry-cleaning facilities and wholesale distribution facilities are compliant with applicable regulations, DSCA Required Minimum Management Practices 15A NCAC 02S .0202 [English]  [Spanish], 40 CFR (Subpart M)- National Perchloroethylene Air Emission Standards for Drycleaning Facilities, 40 CFR Part 40 (Subpart JJJ) - Standards of Performance for Petroleum Drycleaners, and 40 CFR Part 260-262 - Hazardous Waste Management Regulations. Consolidation of multiple regulatory authorities allows one program in DENR to ensure compliance with all environmental requirements, and gives dry cleaners and the public a single DENR point-of-contact for compliance questions or concerns.
DSCA Compliance Unit staff conduct educational outreach visits and full inspections across the state. Through educational assistance and inspections, the Compliance Unit helps ensure that owners/operators understand and adhere to practices that prevent future releases of dry-cleaning solvent to the environment. The DSCA program’s perchloroethylene (perc) compliance calendar provides all applicable rules, recordkeeping, guidance and reference information in one document for the convenience of facility owners and operators. Compliance calendars for both current and past years can be found at link below.
