EPA Approves Lead Paint Test Kit

Friday, September 3, 2010

Comment | More

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has approved the D-Lead Paint Test Kit, by ESCA Tech Inc., for lead-based paint on plaster or drywall surfaces.

The kits will be commercially available by late September, the company says.

“[W]hen used by a certified renovator,” EPA said, the D-Lead Paint Test Kit “can reliably determine that regulated lead-based paint is not present on wood, ferrous metal (alloys that contain iron), drywall and plaster surfaces.”

The kit was independently tested by the EPA’s Environmental Technology Verification Program (ETV) and recognized by the EPA under the Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Program rule (40 CFR § 745).

Under the RRP rule, certified renovators must test for the presence of lead paint when remodeling homes, schools or day-care centers built before 1978. Enforcement of the rule begins Oct. 1.

D-Lead is the third EPA-approved lead-testing kit. The others, approved over the summer, are LeadCheck and State of Massachusetts test kits.
