Free Webinar to Focus on Lead Rules

Friday, May 28, 2010

Comment | More

PWC: Painting & Wallcovering Contractor Magazine will host a free webinar June 24 on enforcement of the controversial federal lead-safe rules introduced in April.

Mark Henshall of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will discuss compliance with, and enforcement of, the “Lead-safe  Renovation, Repair and Painting” (RRP) rule. He will then take questions from participants.

The rule took effect April 22, but implementation has not been smooth. The measure has drawn the continuing wrath of a number of trade associations and industry retailers, who say it is burdensome, expensive and over-reaching.

The rule requires EPA lead-safe certification of contractors and renovation firms that disturb a specified amount of paint in pre-1978 homes, schools and day-care centers. Homeowners may not waive a contractor’s participation. EPA says it has certified more than 220,000 of the approximately 250,000 contractors potentially affected.

The webinar is the second of two parts. In the first session, on April 29, Henshall provided an overview of the measure.

Eight states have adopted their own RRP programs in lieu of the federal program: Kansas, Rhode Island, Utah, Mississippi, Wisconsin, Iowa, Oregon and North Carolina.
