EPA Lead Renovator Refresher
The Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) rule affects contractors, property managers and others who disturb
known or presumed lead-based paint during renovation. The term renovation covers all activities done for
compensation that disturb painted surfaces including most repair, remodeling and maintenance activities, such as
window replacement, weatherization and demolition. The RRP rule applies to all renovation work performed in
residential houses, apartments and child-occupied facilities such as schools and day-care centers built before 1978.
Training, certification, and work practice requirements in the Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule are effective
April 22, 2010. Pre-renovation education requirements are effective now.
Requirements for Renovation Contractors Certification and Training
All firms performing renovation, repair or painting work must become certified. This can be accomplished by applying
to EPA or to the State, if it has an EPA-authorized renovation program, and paying a fee.
Firms must have one or more "Certified Renovators" assigned to jobs where lead-based paint is disturbed. To
become certified, a renovator must successfully complete an EPA or State-approved training course conducted by
an EPA or State-accredited training provider. ETI is an approved trainer.
All renovation workers must be trained. Renovation workers can be trained on-the-job by a Certified Renovator
to use lead safe work practices, or they can become Certified Renovators themselves.
