Q: My state will adopt its own RRP program. Do I have to also be certified by EPA?

I operate a renovation firm and I have heard that my state will adopt its own lead Renovation, Repair and Painting program. Do I have to also be certified by EPA?

If you work in a state-authorized by EPA to run their own renovation program, you should contact them for information on their certification requirements.  If you work in a state where EPA administers the renovation program your firm needs to be certified by EPA. Please refer to the “firm certification” tab on this page for a list of states authorized by EPA to run their own renovation programs -https://www.epa.gov/lead/renovation-repair-and-painting-program-contractors.
