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 for Section 402 of the TSCA. 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 eight hour Lead Certified Renovator Training course conducted by an EPA-accredited provider and pass the certification exam. Also the company must apply and obtain a certification form the EPA.
