Upcoming Lead Paint Renovation Webinar at EPA New England
What do to about Lead-Based Paint:
Guidance on the EPA Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule & Real Estate Notification and Disclosure Rule
Wednesday, June 5th
11:00 AM-12:30 PM EST
Summer is the season for home renovation, repair and painting projects in New England. In pre-1978 homes that contain lead-based paint, children and adults are at risk for lead poisoning. Contractors and renovation firms who paint or otherwise renovate pre-1978 homes, schools, and day care centers are required to follow certain regulatory requirements under the EPA Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule in order to protect children, adults, and their own staff from exposure to hazardous lead-based paint. Landlords and real estate agents are also responsible for disclosing the presence of lead to new buyers or tenants of pre-1978 housing under the Real Estate Notification and Disclosure Rule.
This summer, EPA Region 1 Lead Inspectors are partnering with the state of Vermont to offer contractors, landlords, child care facility operators, and any interested individuals an opportunity to learn more about these key federal regulations and their role in protecting the public from lead-based paint, a health hazard that is particularly prevalent in older New England homes. EPA Region 1 lead inspectors will be available to answer questions from contractors and landlords about compliance with these requirements. Please contact Amanda Brylski at 617-918-1758 or Brylski.firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
