European Union (Paints, Varnishes, Vehicle Refinishing Products and Activities) Regulations 2012 (S.I.No 564 of 2012) make it illegal for any uncertified Vehicle Refinishing operator to spray cars without a valid certificate of compliance. Any uncertified vehicle refinisher should contact the Environment section of the local authority to arrange an inspection with an approved authorised assessor. See the leaflet below on what you need to comply with the regulations.

View the guidance Best Practice Guidelines for Vehicle Refinishing for comprehensive information on how to comply with the regulations. 

The table below contains links to the website of each Local Authority. This will bring you to the required local authority page to list the names of certified vehicle refinishers. If you have any queries please contact the Environment section of the relevant Local Authority. 

Please note that some Local Authorities maintain the Register as a table on the web page, while other Local Authorities maintain a link to a PDF or Excel document.
