The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has new rules for work that disturbs lead-based paint in pre-1978 housing and facilities serving children under six. The new rules currently allow an “opt-out” for those homeowners who can certify that there are no children younger than six or pregnant women residing in the home. As of July 6, 2010 the new rules will apply to all pre-1978 housing. The EPA has announced its intention to impose similar requirements on work in any public and commercial buildings.
