On 4/22/2010 the EPA Renovate, Repair and Painting Lead Rule goes into effect. There are only 90 days left to complete the application to become registered.
Yesterday I spoke with many contractors who have not sent in their application to be an EPA certified Firm.
Have you sent in your firm application?
On 4/22/2010 all contractors who want to work on pre-1978 homes must be registered with the EPA. The turn around time for processing the application is 90 days on a first come first served basis.
This affects remodelers, electricians, plumbers, roofers, siding and window contractors, painters, alarm and it installers, tile installers, insulation, plasterers and any contractor who works on pre-1978 homes. It also includes property owners who rent apartments.
It is not necessary to complete the Certified Renovator training before sending in the application. The application is below.
If you know any contractors be their friend and ask them if they know about this new law. Ask them are they ready for the new EPA RRP Lead Rule which goes into effect on 4/22/2010. The fine for non-compliance is $37,500 per violation. Ouch!
If they need help they can call me.
