EPA Delays Enforcement of Lead Paint Rule Until Oct 1, 2010

National Lumber is pleased to pass along the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) announcement that the EPA has decided to delay enforcement on the lead paint Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) rule until October 1, 2010, to make time for all remodelers, electricians, painters, and other contractors to become certified.

From the NAHB press release:

While remodelers, electricians, heating and air conditioning technicians and other contractors must adhere to lead-safe work practices, including special equipment filters and a ban on open flames, EPA will not take enforcement action against firms that have been unable to obtain certification until Oct. 1 of this year.

Individual contractors must apply to enroll in a training class by Sept. 30 and complete the training by Dec. 31, 2010.
