EPA is cracking down on RRP violators

What does the RRP Rule Require.

The RRP Rule applies to all individuals or firms performing renovation, repair, and/or painting projects that disturb painted surfaces in pre-1978 residential homes, schools, and childcare centers for compensation. Individuals or firms may include painters, carpenters, window replacement companies, remodelers, plumbers, electricians, and landlords/property managers who conduct their own repairs. Performing, offering, or claiming to perform renovation, repair, and/or painting work without proper firm certification from EPA is a violation of the RRP Rule. Violations of the RRP Rule may result in the issuance of penalties up to $43,611 per violation.
