You need to to begin thinking about renewing your U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting (LRRP) program certifications. All of your employees as well as yourself, are required to conduct the certification process; your firm is also susceptible to this rule. Keep in mind that both your firm and individual renovator certifications both expire every 5 years. EPA is requiring contractors to confirm they are an “EPA Lead-Safe Certified Firm” by presenting the agency’s new logo. Under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), EPA may possibly file an enforcement motion against violators of the RRP rule, in penalties of up to $37,500 in violations, every day.f

Keep in mind renovator certifications expire every 5 years. The renovator will be certified for 5 years from the date of the course completion. Don’t delay; in the event you don’t take the 4-hour refresher course bre the expiration date, you will have to retake the 8-hour initial EPA lead certification course in order to be certified again.
