Remodelers-Get Your Application for Certification in Now!

In order for a General Contractor to work on a renovation project under the Lead-Based Paint Renovation, Repair and Painting Program Rule at a Target Housing, the contractor must apply for firm certification. Given that the law goes into effect on April 22, 2010 and the EPA has up to 90 days after receiving a complete request for certification to approve or disapprove the application, all firms intending to do renovations should apply now so they will not be faced with having to cease work if certification is not received by that time.
