New EPA Rule went into effect on April 22nd, 2010
The new rule from the EPA (40 CFR Part 745) states that any contractor/renovator who disturbs more than six (6) square feet of painted surface must follow lead safe practices. Renovations affected by the new rule include activities such as sanding, cutting drywall, demolition, etc. Under the new rule, a contractor will need to become a certified renovator, taking a training course from an accredited training provider. Once they are certified, they will need to only work for a certified firm, whether their own company, a property management firm, or another contracting company.
