Work on homes built before 1978 must comply with the EPA's new lead paint regulations.

EPA's Renovation, Repair and Painting Regulation Now Enforced

 
As of Friday, the EPA's new Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) rule--which took effect this past April--will now be enforced. The new regulation covers work done on homes built before 1978 and is in place to protect against lead paint.

For those of you who missed the announcement on the rule, you can find a quick primer here or take a look at the EPA site for the new regulation.

Failure to comply with the new regulations can earn a contractor a whopping $37,500 fine. Work performed on homes, schools and day-care center built before 1978 must comply with the new regulations.

Homeowners would do well to know the new regulations and to ensure that a hired contractor is in compliance.

EPA Lead Paint RRP Class

Great article. We attended the class at one of the locations on the EPA Lead Training website (http://www.epaleadtraining.com).

I hope it helps you as it did us. I learned more from the class than I expected and once it was over with, I was glad that I went through it. Good stuff for us all to learn.
