Real Estate Delaware County PA BlogApril 22, 2010 the Environmental Protection Agency's Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) rule takes effect requiring lead-based paint be removed only by a Certified Renovator who has received an EPA-accreditation. "The rules apply, with some exceptions, to interior work that disturbs 6 square feet or less of lead-painted surfaces, and 20 square feet or less for exterior surfaces. Consequences for not complying with the RRP can include penalties of up to $32,500 per violation, per day. In addition, EPA may suspend, revoke, or modify a company's certification." (From Remodeling)

If you are a contractor who does remodeling and you would like to become certified there are classes available.
