Don't Spread the Lead: A guide to lead-safe painting, repair, and home improvement for do-it-yourselfers

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) created the Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule (RRP Rule) which requires companies performing renovation, repair, and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities and pre-schools built before 1978 to have their company certified by EPA (or an EPA authorized state).

An RRP- certified contractor is someone who completes an EPA-approved training program focused on teaching proper and safe work practices when working with lead-based paint. Click here for more information.
