“Legal Impact of the EPA Lead-Based Paint Repair Renovation & Painting (RRP) Rule”
Effective April 2010, anyone who is paid to perform work that disturbs painted surfaces in housing and child-occupied facilities built before 1978, must follow the RRP Rule. This includes general contractors, trade contractors, (including painters, plumbers & electricians) window replacement contractors and residential rental property owners/managers. The EPA RRP Rule is not business as usual – $37,500 fines are possible. The new law has strict certification, work practices and record keeping requirements.
The coverage of the Rule and key requirements, liability, insurance, contract issues and practical concerns will be covered.
