EPA RRP Lead Certification

EPA's Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule (RRP Rule) requires, by law, that firms performing renovation, repair, and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities and pre-schools built before 1978 have their firm certified by EPA (or an EPA authorized state), use certified renovators who are trained by EPA-approved training providers and follow lead-safe work practices. This includes restoration contractors, painters, plumbers, electricians, window companies, and on and on.

Taking the EPA Lead RRP course and passing the test does award you as an EPA Lead ‘Certified Renovator’, however, when working in Georgia, you must now ALSO fill out the ‘Georgia Renovator Application’ and the company must fill out the ‘Georgia Firm Application’. There are also other states that have their own 'rules' so if working in other states make sure to check and see. The term you are looking for is to see if they are an 'Authorized' state

Georgia now has ‘authority’ over the Lead RRP ruling and some new rules apply. Georgia is now considered an 'Authorized' state. If you are working in Georgia, see below for Georgia Firm Certification and Georgia Renovator Application.
