The purpose of the Lead RRP Rule is to minimize exposure from lead-based paint dust during renovation, repair, or painting activities which has taken effect April 2010, for residential housing properties built before 1978.
The Lead RRP Rule requires that renovators are trained in the use of lead safe work practices when renovation or repair work is undertaken on pre-1978 housing that disturbs more than six (6) square feet of surface area for interior work, or twenty (20) square feet of exterior work. That renovators and firms be certified, that providers of renovation training be accredited, and that renovators follow specific work practice standards. Additional information on this rule can be found at http://www.epa.gov/lead/pubs/renovation.htm.

Who must be Lead Certified?
If you are a contractor, property manager, landlord, remodeler, plumber, electrician, painter, window and door contractor, or others who disturb painted surfaces in pre-1978 housing, apartments and child-occupied facilities, then you must have Lead RRP Certification and use lead-safe work practices.
Lead RRP Training for Contractors
All contractors that work on pre-1978 homes and child occupied facilities that disturb more than 6 square feet of interior paint or 20 square feet of exterior paint or engage in window replacements MUST be Certified Lead Renovators. These include but are not limited to renovators, plumbers, electricians, remodelers, painters, window and door contractors, HVAC, landlords, property managers, maintenance companies, siding replacement, and abrasive blasting.
EPA Lead Certified Firms and Lead Renovators
Any business paid to perform renovation, repair, or painting work on pre-1978 housing and child-occupied facilities must become an EPA Lead Certified Firm.
Global Green will train and certify the renovator to be in compliance with current required standards. A Certified Firm will be the employer of a Certified Renovator.
A Lead Certified Renovator must be assigned to each project and must be present on the job site for certain specific phases of the work being performed. The Lead Certified Renovator is also responsible for training all non-certified workers who will be working on the project.
