What exactly is EPA’s New RRP Rule?
The Lead-Base Paint Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule (RRP) is actually a federal regulatory program influencing anybody who “disturbs” painted areas exactly where lead could possibly be existing. In the event you work around construction developed before 1978 it’s essential to have a Lead Paint RRP (Renovation, Repair and Painting) Certification or you might be fined more than $37,000.
To abide with the EPA regulatory needs of this rule you should:
- Fill out an application to the EPA to certify your business (should renew each and every 5 years).
- A minimum of one company worker need to go to an 8-hour EPA Lead Paint Certification Course, and enroll in a refresher course each and every 5 years.
- Certified Renovator Course students should show “hands-on” ability and successfully pass a written examination.
- Give tenants, owners,and child-care facilities with a duplicate of EPA’s lead risk info brochure:“Renovate Right: Important Lead Hazard Information for Families, Child Care Providers, and Schools.”
