Compliance Assistance Session on the RRP Rule with EPA Representatives
What is the RRP Rule?
The Renovation, Repair, and Painting (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 EPA, use certified renovators who are trained by EPA-approved training providers, and follow lead-safe work practices.
Why is it Important?
The RRP Rule is designed to protect children and families from hazardous lead dust that could potentially be created when lead-paint is disturbed during renovation, repair, or painting projects.
Avoid costly fines and civil liability
Without certification and by not following approved practices, you and your company can face fines and lawsuits.
Gain a competitive edge
Certification makes you stand out from others and positions you as a professional contractor consumers can trust.
Consumers will look for the certification before hiring contractors
Your company will be listed as a Lead-Safe Certified Contractor on the EPA Website, giving your company the potential for new customers.
