EPA RRP Lead Safe Renovator Certification - New York


As of April 22, 2010, anyone who conducts renovations, repairs, or painting in pre-1978 or child-occupied facilities must get certified. In addition to personal certification, there is also the requirement of getting your firm registered with the EPA in order to ensure that you are not at risk to receive up to $37,500 in fines per day!

Nassau county consumer affairs has recently made it a requirement that any individual renewing or applying for a contractors license must obtain a lead certification certificate. If you do not think this certification apply’s to you, keep in mind that there is a very good chance a project may present itself that requires this certification in order to accept the job.
