New EPA Regulations for Lead Paint Removal

Written by Alliance Environmental

New EPA Regulations for Lead Paint Removal Coming Soon!!

On April 22, 2008, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a new rule regarding Lead Based Paint disturbance. By April 22, 2010 all lead paint removal contractors must comply with the EPA Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule for Lead-Based Paint if you are disturbing paint on housing or child-occupied facilities built before 1978.

If you plan on renovating more than 6 square feet inside and 20 square feet outside the home, then plan on some additional steps than just restoration work. First, lead paint removal contractors must distribute the EPA’s new Renovate Right! pamphlet to owners and occupants unless it is an emergency. Second, lead paint removal contractors must have their crews and supervisors trained as certified renovators. Third, contractors that provide lead paint removal services must apply to the EPA to become a Certified Lead Renovation Firm. Finally, lead-based paint removal firms must incorporate new record keeping and reporting requirements within their information management systems.

Alliance Environmental Group, Inc. is California’s premier lead-based paint removal contractor and is already preparing to incorporate the new EPA regulations into its business practices. When you call Alliance Environmental Group, you know that you are in safe hands.

Please reach out to Bill Wood – Director of Client Relations at Alliance Environmental Group – with any questions regarding these new guidelines and how they affect your California lead-based paint removal project.
