Contractors: Don’t Forget Your Massachusetts Lead-Safe Licensing Waiver

Important reminder! If your company was certified before July 9, 2010 under the federal EPA RRP rule, you are entitled to a waiver of the Massachusetts state certification for the first 5 years (coincidental with the EPA certificate date) but you must fill out the form from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. You can find the form right here: Lead Safe Renovation Contractor Licensing Waiver

If you are working on pre-1978 homes in Massachusetts, you MUST have the MA certification or waiver. Filling out the waiver form along with providing proof of EPA RRP certification will save you $375. Fill it out now and get it in the mail.

This will also quickly get you certified in the Massachusetts Department of Occupational Safety’s Lead-Safe Renovation program. Another important aspect is that you will be listed on the Massachusetts Currently Licensed Lead-Safe Contractors List. Homeowners are checking this list when looking for contractors.

National Lumber has all the tools and supplies you need to help comply with the new lead-safe renovation rules. Visit or call your local National Lumber store today to see how we can help you.
