Auto Bodyshops and Environmental Protection

Important Public Notice

Auto Bodyshops and Environmental Protection

Kildare County Council and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) urge you to use only certified car spraying operators (auto bodyshops) when having your car’s paintwork repaired.

• Certified providers have made the commitment and investment to operate legally and are applying good environmental practice to prevent environmental pollution.

• Uncertified bodyshops are operating illegally and should be avoided as they are not operating to the same standard as certified operators.

It is a legal requirement that those providing auto re-spraying services be environmentally compliant and hold a certificate from their local authority, so ask to see their certificate.

Remember if it’s not a registered bodyshop -don’t use it. Think about the environment.

For information on certified vehicle refinishers in your area please contact the Environment Section, Kildare County Council on 045-980588 or visit our website on For further information visit the following website

You may report concerns regarding uncertified bodyshops to the National Environmental Complaints line on 1850 365 121 (anytime).
