RRP Certification

RRP Certification is the Lead Based Paint Certification required by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) since April 22, 2010 for all individuals, companies, organizations, firms or agencies who work-in or offer to perform work in buildings built before 1978. The EPA calls this program the Lead Safety for Renovation, Repair & Painting or RRP Certification.

Anyone who does any work that has the potential to disturb paint must have the RRP Certification. This includes all contractors, both general and specialty, handymen, remodelers, painters, electricians, roofers, carpenters, window and door installers, landlords, property management companies, and maintenance personnel, just to name a few.

The work must be done by an EPA RRP Certified Renovator and workers who have been properly trained. All work must also be performed by a Lead Certified Firm.

If you are a general contractor or property manager it is your responsibility to both be Lead Certified and to make sure that any sub-contractors you may use are also Lead Certified.

The EPA coordinates with states, cities and other local agencies to enforce the Lead Paint RRP Certification Rules. Penalties can be as much as $37,500 per violation, per day.

There are two steps to becoming Lead Paint Certified:

  1. Attend a One Day, Lead Paint Certification Class in Lead Safe Work-Practices. Upon completion you, and any other of your team who attend, will be Lead Certified Renovators.
  2. Register your company, firm or organization as a Lead Certified Firm. You will receive the application in your class.
