The Lead-Based Paint Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) rule is a federal regulatory program affecting anyone who disturbs painted surfaces where lead may be present. Any contractor, including renovators, electrician, HVAC specialists, plumbers, painters and maintenance staff, who disrupts more than six square feet of lead paint in pre-1978 homes, schools, day care centers and other places where children spend time must be Lead-Safe Certified. Without certification and by not following approved practices, a contractor can face tens of thousands of dollars in fines and put their company at risk of potential lawsuits.
