Contractors are required to be lead-certifiedfor 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 EPA 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.
Louisiana firms must submit an RRP application and fee payment to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Others may submit applications to their designated state agency, if the state has an EPA-authorized program. The RRP application is online at www.epa.gov/lead/pubs/firmapp.pdf. (Note that the RRP certification is different from lead abatement, a separate classification.)
