Notification Rule If Dust Wipe Test is Performed-From the EPA

As of July 6, 2010, final rule requires that, if dust clearance is  performed in lieu of cleaning verification, the renovation firm provide  a copy of the dust wipe sampling report(s) to the owner of the building  that was renovated as well as to the occupants, if different. With  respect to renovations in common areas of target housing or in child- occupied facilities, EPA is also requiring that these records be made  available to the tenants of the affected housing units or the parents  and guardians of children under age 6 using the child-occupied  facilities. Dust sampling reports may be made available to these groups  in the same way as training and work practice records, by providing  information on how to review or obtain copies in individual  notifications or on posted signs.
