Any contractors, from plumbers to electricians to painters who disturbs lead paint while working in a pre-1978 home, school or day- care center now must be lead-safe certified.  If you're not, you can face tens of thousand of dollars in fines!

EPA Certification Requirement Info

Beginning April 22, 2010, paid contractors, maintenance workers, painters and others performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in housing and other child-occupied facilities built before 1978 must be certified. (Child-occupied facilities are those where children under age six are present on a regular basis.) The rule applies to all interior projects involving more than 6 square feet, exterior projects of more than 20 square feet and all window replacement, maintenance or repair.

All firms that perform renovation, repair or painting work are required to be EPA certified.

Firms must also have at least one “certified renovator” on the job site where lead-based paint is disturbed. To become a certified renovator, an  individual must successfully complete the  Lead Certified Renovator Training course conducted by an EPA-accredited provider and pass the certification exam (where applicable). The full course is eight hours.
Your certification is valid for five years from the date of completion of the course.


About the Course

RPP CertificateSample Certificate 

*Please bring photo ID

The traditional renovation work you do now can create significant lead-dust hazards if lead-based paint is present and disturbed. • The leaded dust gener­ated by traditional renovation work can cause lead poisoning in children. It can also poi­son pregnant women, yourself, your children, other workers and even pets. Practical changes in work practices can minimize and contain dust. The use of lead-safe work practices makes the job safer and reduces your liability exposure. • EPA’s Renovation, Repair and Painting Final Rule (40 CFR 745) requires that renovations conducted for compensation, must be performed by Certified Firms using Certified Renovators. Reno­vation firms that wish to work in pre-1978 homes and child-occupied facilities must apply to EPA and pay a fee in order to become certified. Renovators seeking to become Certi­fied Renovators must successfully complete an EPA-accredited renovator course. This course is the EPA model course for Certified Renovators and as such meets all require­ments in 40 CFR 745.90. • This course will teach you how to comply with the EPA Reno­vation, Repair and Painting Rule and the HUD Lead Safe Housing Rule, and how to per­form lead-safe work practices safely and effectively.
