As of April 22, 2010, federal law requires that:
- Renovation firms must be certified under the EPA’s Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule
- Trained in lead-safe work practices
- Accredited by the United States Environmental Protection Agency
Common renovation activities like sanding, cutting, and demolition can create hazardous lead dust and chips by disturbing lead-based paint, which can be harmful to adults and children. To protect against the risk, the EPA issued the Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule. This rule requires that all firms performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in pre-1978 homes, child care facilities and schools must be certified. This certification ensures the compliance and enforcement of businesses and the industry as a whole to follow the environmental laws and regulations.
