Who must have EPA Lead Certification?

Individuals who do work on lead paint or coated surfaces must have EPA lead certification prior to beginning work. Whether you are a consultant inspecting and testing for lead based paint, a contractor abating a lead paint hazard, or a remodeler renovating a property older than 1978, you need to have EPA lead paint certification.

NOTE TO REMODELERS: Even though you were not hired to specifically remove lead based paint, your renovation, repair or painting work in pre-1978 properties could result in lead dust contamination. Therefore, the EPA requires that you attend the Lead Renovator Course and become EPA lead certified prior to beginning work. Additionally, you must apply with the EPA or authorized states to become an EPA Lead Certified Firm.
