EPA RRP Rule and Pre-Renovation Rule Enforcement is Affecting Contractors Nationally

EPA RRP Rule and Pre-Renovation Rule Enforcement is Affecting Contractors Nationally

10 May 2011

By Scott von Gonten, CGA, CGP, SHA, CR, CDST

Will the EPA ever really enforce the Residential Lead-Based Paint Regulations? 

This question has prompted thousands of contractors and sub-contractors to unwisely postpone their Certified Renovator training and Certified Firm applications, which are required by the EPA’s Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule (RRP Rule).  Well, for those contractors who have been waiting for the EPA to begin fining companies for lead-related violations, it has happened!  These recent fines have caused a huge panic in the building industry because it is now crystal clear that the EPA will enforce residential lead-based paint regulations.

A Flurry of Recent EPA Fines

 

On 23 March 2011, a Connecticut window and siding company was fined, and has agreed to pay, $30,702.00 for failing to distribute the required Renovate Right pamphlets to homeowners and residents prior to renovations.  This settlement stemmed from an EPA inspection and the subsequent documentation the company submitted to the EPA. 

In addition, on 31 March 2011, a major Continue reading about the specific fines and if they are near you…


EPA RRP Rule Lead Certified Renovator Training in Dallas Fort Worth Texas

EPA RRP Rule Lead Certified Renovator Training in Dallas Fort Worth, Texas

If you do any type of renovation work in the greater Dallas Fort Worth area and have not yet taken the EPA RRP Rule Lead Certified Renovator Training Course and have not yet received firm approval from the EPA, you are breaking the law.  That is the unfortunate truth.  In fact, the EPA has begun enforcing the lead-based paint regulations and has heavily fined several companies recently.

Although the RRP Rule must have been precisely followed since April 22, 2010, the EPA’s final extended deadline for training passed on December 31, 2010 and the EPA can fine contractors and sub-contractors for violating the EPA’s Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule (RRP Rule), which deals with Lead-Based Paint in Pre-1978 Target Housing and Child-Occupied Facilities.  Plus, the EPA has Three Full Years, from the time you finish each job, to audit your paperwork and make sure the RRP Rule was followed. 

Too many contractors are risking their businesses by ignoring this regulation.  The fines will be painful and the EPA is motivated to find, and fine, violators, since the EPA’s RRP Rule administration costs must be compensated through fines and registrations.  Obviously, now that some contractors have been devastated by fines, which can be up to $37,500.00 per violation per day, other contractors will frantically scramble to sign up for training.  You do NOT want to be a contractor that gets fined!

Think about it….How many Pre-1978 homes have you worked in since April 22, 2010, when the RRP Rule was enforced?  Every one of those jobs is subject to the EPA’s audit for Three Full Years!  How much risk exposure do you currently have?  Are you willing to keep on extending your risk and liability?  We are trying our best to keep you out of trouble.  Please let us help you.

In this 60-second, contractor-oriented video, Scott von Gonten, the “Lead Paint Professor,” quickly explains the basic information that ALL contractors and ALL sub-contractors need to know prior to conducting renovations on Pre-1978 Target Housing or Child-Occupied Facilities.  The EPA’s Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule requires that contractors provide some very important information about Lead-Based Paint to the homeowner and residents prior to any work activities.  In addition, the contractors must conduct Lead-Safe Work Practices while renovating and provide a special report to the homeowner and residents after the work has been completed.  This is very important information that will benefit the health and well-being of people who live in Pre-1978 Target Housing or who have children that visit Child-Occupied Facilities.  In order to comply with the law, contractors must be specially trained Certified Renovators working for EPA-approved Certified Firms.  You can visit www.LeadPaintProfessor.com or call (713) 213-1205 for more information.  We are here to help you.
