EPA's Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule (RRP Rule) requires that firms performing renovation, repair, and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities and pre-schools built before 1978 have their firm certified by the Department of Commerce, use certified renovators who are trained by EPA-approved training providers, and follow Lead-safe work practices.
The resources in this area are designed to keep our member companies compliant, while avoiding potential fines and penalties that can be as high as $37,500 per day, per incident. The EPA and the Department of Commerce both oversee compliance of the RRP rule. Please, do not hesitate to contact BNCW for more information!
