Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

EPA Website http://epa.gov/lead/pubs/renovation.htm has more information from the Environmental Protection Agency. This is the primary source for information about the Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule. Forms are available through the EPA website, and select forms are available below:

Please check the EPA’s RRP Frequently Asked Questions page to answer some common questions about the rule and how it will affect you and your business.

Download your Renovate Right Pamphlet / (Spanish) and Pre-Renovation Disclosure Form, or order directly from the EPA’s National Lead Information Center at 1-800-424-LEAD (5323).

Application for Firm Certification
Firm Certification must be completed as soon as possible because the process takes time. Firms should complete the form and submit a $300 payment to the EPA. Under the recently passed extension, the deadline for Firm Certification is now October 1, 2010.

EPA’s Central Data Exchange
You can file your application for Firm Certification directly online. This system is finicky, so use the paper form if you have trouble.

You can download the student manual in both English and Spanish to preview the material or to replace a lost/stolen book at http://epa.gov/lead/pubs/epahudrrmodel.htm Each module and the appendices will have to be downloaded separately.
