EPA Lead RegulationsOct. 1st 2010
New Federal Lead-Safety Regulations Begin Today!The Arizona Registrar of Contractors would like to remind contractors that enforcement of lead paint safety regulations becomes effective today. The United States Environmental Protection Agency’s (U.S. EPA) Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule requires federal lead-safe certification for remodeling or demolition in homes, schools, and childcare facilities constructed in and before1978.
The U.S. EPA extended its prior enforcement date of April 22, 2010, to enable contractors to complete their training and apply for the federal certification. The EPA’s interim final enforcement document has more information on enforcement of the regulation.
Contractors, or at least one person employed by a contractor’s firm, must currently be enrolled in the training by December 31, 2010. Training costs vary by provider. Once training is complete, the contractor should apply for certification, which costs $300 and is valid for five years.
It is not necessary to submit your EPA certification or proof of lead-safety course completion to the ROC.
