In April 2008, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a rule that had a significant impact on the renovation and remodeling industry. The Lead: Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule (RRP) will require contractors working on buildings constructed before 1978 to be certified.

Effective April 2010, federal law requires renovation firms to be certified and requires individuals to be trained in the use of lead-safe work practices.

Certified Firm: The actual company that performs the work must be a Certified Firm.

Certified Renovator: The Certified Renovator is a named individual who works for a Certified Firm. A Certified Renovator must be assigned to each project and must be present on the job site for particular phases of the job. A Certified Renovator may not designate a non-certified person to these particular responsibilities. The Certified Renovator is also responsible for training all non-certified workers who will be doing actual work on the project.

Training: ESGI is an EPA approved training provider for the RRP Initial Class.
