  • History of the Renovation, Repair & Painting Rule

    • The new EPA lead regulation: Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule (RRP) became effective April 21, 2010.  It requires building professionals to become "Certified Renovators."

      This regulation applies to ALL contractors, property managers and other building professionals who disturb painted surfaces while conducting plumbing, electrical, painting, drywall, flooring, window replacement, landscaping, construction, renovation, remodeling and demolition work.

      The rule applies to work that disturbs painted surfaces in residential houses, apartments, condominiums, day care facilities and schools built prior to 1978.

      This rule was issued for everyone's protection!  Lead can affect children's brains and developing nervous systems, causing reduced IQ, learning disabilities, and behavioral problems. Lead is also harmful to adults.

      Lead in dust is the most common way people are exposed to lead. People can also get lead in their bodies from lead in soil or paint chips. Lead dust is often invisible. Lead-based paint was used in more than 38 million homes until it was banned for residential use in 1978.

      Projects that disturb lead-based paint can create dust and endanger you and your family. Don't let this happen to you. Follow the practices mandated by RRP and described in this course to protect you and your family from the Dangers of Lead Poisoning!
