What does EPA Lead Certification mean?

EPA Lead Certification is a requirement imposed by the Environmental Protection Agency before starting any renovation project.

The agency mandates that all workers who renovate, repair, and paint (RRP) housing and child-occupied facilities should undergo rigid training for lead-safe work practices before starting the project.

The rule, which took effect on April 22, 2010, specifies that renovation projects that affect more than six square feet of interior or 20 square feet of exterior paint should require their workers to comply.

Failure to comply with this strict standard is subject to violations.
