Ready EPA Finalizes and Revises Its Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting Program Rule


The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule (RRP Rule), effective October 4, 2011, may impact contractors of residential housing, schools and some commercial buildings.

The RRP Rule establishes requirements for the renovation of homes and buildings that may contain lead-based paint. Its purpose is to both inform residents of housing and “child-occupied facilities” of lead-based paint hazards and to ensure that the individual(s) renovating these properties have the proper training, certification and work practices to minimize these hazards.
