Effective April 2010, The Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule (RRP) went into effect. All contractors have new Federal requirements to follow when working on properties that were built before 1978.
Under the new rule, all contractors, painters, carpenters plumbers, electricians, building workers & superintendents, school maintenance workers etc. performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb paint in residential, single and multifamily buildings; child care facilities; and schools built before 1978, must become Lead Certified Renovators by attending an EPA approved course.
