EPA Releases New Lead-Based Paint Compliance Resources

From the National Apartment Association’s AIMS Washington Update:

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has issued several new and updated resources to help apartment firms comply with the lead-based paint Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) rules.  They include:

  • An improved searchable database that allows users to identify EPA-certified RRP firms by name and location. 
  • An updated database of Frequent Questions (FQ) that reflects recent regulatory changes.  A searchable database is available as well as a searchable PDF version.  
  • A new fact sheet describing how the RRP applies to repairs and renovations done in response to natural disasters such as floods and hurricanes.
