The Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule establishes requirements for firms and individuals performing renovations, and affects contractors, property managers, and others who disturb painted surfaces. It applies to work in houses, apartments, and child-occupied facilities (such as schools and day-care centers) built before 1978. It includes pre-renovation education requirements as well as training, firm certification, and work practice requirements.
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 or a course accredited by an EPA authorized State or Tribe. 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. Once you have successfully completed a Certified Renovator Course, delivered by an EPA accredited training provider, you are an EPA Certified Renovator. EPA Certified Renovator status will allow you to do lead safe renovation, repair, and painting work in pre-1978 housing and in child occupied facilities where work will disturb lead-based paint. Your certification is valid for five years from the date of completion of the course. To renew certification after five years, you must successfully complete an EPA-accredited Certified Renovator Refresher Course before your initial certification expires. Refresher training must be taken every five years to maintain certification. If the certified renovator training is not refreshed within five years of the previous training, you must retake the initial course to become certified again.
In general, anyone who is paid to perform work that disturbs paint in housing and child-occupied facilities built before 1978 must be certified. This includes all firms, even sole proprietorship’s.
