  • Lead based paint was banned in 1977 from residential use

  • Symptoms of Lead Poisoning are easily misinterpreted by medical personnel

  • One gram of lead-based paint can contaminate a large area!

Any contractor performing repairs, renovation or painting on any pre-1978 home of child occupied facility must assign a certified renovator to that project who has successfully completed an EPA certified RRP training. In addition, the company must also be certified by EPA as an RRP certified Renovator. In order for the company to become certified by EPA they must submit an application directly to EPA online Some States or tribes have adopted this program, therefore, if the contractor is working in the following States they must be certified by that Sate. Some States might have adopted more stringent requirements than EPA. There are presently 14 States and one tribe that are authorized by EPS to administer their own RRP program.
