NEW EPA RULES ADDRESSING LEAD PAINT

There are new Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rules addressing lead paint that will go into effect April 22, 2010. The new rules apply primarily, but not exclusively, to residential construction. EPA "targets" are homes built before 1978 and all facilities where young children have access at least twice a week, such as some schools, kindergartens and day care facilities. Contractors encountering lead paint must be certified by EPA; must have a certified renovator supervise work; and must have all employees who work with lead paint trained in proper work practices.

In addition to a special report NRCA sent out earlier this month, NRCA will be conducting a webinar on Thursday, April 15, 2010 to discuss the new rule and its implications. We feel that this information will be important for our members.

This Webinar will be free for NRCA members. Non-NRCA members can receive a 50% discount, by entering the code "affiliate" upon checkout.
