Iowa Approved to Enforce Lead Rule

Thursday, March 18, 2010

Comment | More

Iowa has become the second state in the country to be federally authorized to administer and enforce the impending federal Lead-based Paint Renovation, Repair and Painting (LRRP) program. Wisconsin was the first state to be certified.

The LRRP Rule, approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in April 2008, mandates training and certification in lead-safe work practices for contractors, property managers and others who work in homes and child-occupied facilities built before 1978.

The rule is set to take effect April 22, but a dozen associations and retailers are appealing to EPA to delay implementation.

Meanwhile, Iowa Governor Chet Culver has certified the state’s program as it will be administered by the Iowa Department of Public Health. States have to certify that their programs are at least as protective as EPA’s and provide adequate enforcement.

“Iowa’s proactive approach to prevent lead poisoning will allow Iowa citizens to be more aware of the dangers and protect children from lead-based paint hazards in their homes,” said regional administrator Karl Brooks.

The LRRP rule places new requirements on property management companies, landlords, contractors, renovators and painters for lead-safe work practices to reduce lead exposure of children.

Common renovation activities like sanding, cutting and demolition can create hazardous lead dust and chips by disturbing lead-based paint, which can be harmful to adults and children. Lead-based paint was used in more than 38 million homes until it was banned for residential use in 1978.

Follow LRRP developments at www.epa.gov/lead or by contacting the National Lead Information Center at 800-424-LEAD (5323).
