Frequently Asked Questions
Who must be Lead-Safe Certified?
All firms that conduct lead renovation, repair and painting activities must be lead certified by the EPA under the lead RRP Rule. This includes any firm that receives compensation to conduct work that disturbs lead paint in pre-1978 residential properties and child-occupied facilities (e.g. daycares, elementary schools, pre-schools). This may include residential property owners and managers, maintenance staff, contractors, renovators, remodelers, carpenters painters, plumbers, electricians, roofers, siders and window installers.
Where is lead paint found and why does it matter?
It is estimated that lead paint was used in more than 38 million residential properties built prior 1978. Lead paint can form toxic dust when it is disturbed during normal home repair activity. The EPA Lead RRP Rule is an effort to protect the public from lead poisoning, especially children under the age of six, associated with renovation, repair and painting activities. These types of activities can create hazardous lead dust when surfaces with lead paint and coated surfaces are disturbed. The RRP Rule requires workers to receive lead certification training to become lead certified renovators.
What are the EPA certification requirements?
Contractors are required to assign at least one lead certified renovator to each lead renovation project. Lead renovators are certified upon completion of an EPA accredited renovator lead training course. The initial EPA lead certification training is 8 hours in length, and the lead certification is good for 5 years from the date of lead certification course completion. State authorized lead certification programs may vary. To maintain their lead certification a certified renovator must complete a refresher lead certification training course prior to the expiration of their current lead certification. Note: The 4 hour refresher lead certification training course or the 8 hour initial lead certification training course can be used to recertify. If their lead certification expires, then the 8 hour lead certification training course must be taken again to regain their lead certification.
How can a firm comply with the Renovation, Repair, and Painting Program?
A firm that would like to become lead certified to perform lead renovation, repair and painting activity must submit an application to the EPA. In addition, the firm must attest that it will assign at least one lead certified renovator to each project who has been lead trained by attending an EPA-approved lead certification class, use only individuals who are either lead certified or have received appropriate lead training to perform lead renovation, and follow all lead RRP Rule requirements.
