NOTE: A Lead-safe Renovator's certification is good for 5 years from the date of course completion. To maintain your certification, you must complete a refresher training class and test prior to the expiration date shown on your current EPA RRP certificate (either the 4 hour refresher or 8 hour initial training course can be used for this purpose). After your certification expires, the 8 hour course must be taken again to regain certification.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. Previously certified firms should apply to renew certification at least 90 days prior to the firm's expiration date to ensure continuous certification. For more information about RRP firm requirements and to apply, visit www.epa.gov/lead.
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.
