Contractors are required to be lead-certified
for the EPA Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule (RRP)
You play an important role in preventing lead poisoning.
Are you ready?

All firms that perform renovation, repair or painting work that disturb lead-based paint in housing and other child-occupied facilities built before 1978 are required to be certified. (Child-occupied facilities are those where children under age six are present on a regular basis.) The RRP rule applies to all interior projects involving more than 6 square feet, exterior projects of more than 20 square feet and all window replacement, maintenance or repair. (Note that the RRP certification is different from lead abatement, a separate classification.)

Certification involves two steps: 
1.  Firms must submit an RRP application and fee payment to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), or to the designated state agency, if the state has an EPA-authorized program.  The EPA RRP application form and information is online at www.epa.gov/lead/pubs/firmapp.pdf  
2.  Firms must also have at least one “certified renovator” on the job site where lead-based paint is disturbed. To become a certified renovator, an individual must successfully complete the Lead Certified Renovator Training course conducted through an EPA-accredited provider and pass the certification exam. The full course is eight hours.

NOTICE:  All paid contractors, maintenance workers, painters and others performing renovation, repair and painting projects not in compliance with the EPA Lead Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule (RRP) are subject to penalties.   For more information about the EPA compliance policies, click here.
