Question (23002-23255)

What lead test kits are recognized by EPA?

Answer

To date, EPA has recognized three lead test kits for use in complying with the false negative response criterion of the RRP rule. They are the 3M LeadCheckTM kit (for use on ferrous metal, plaster, drywall and wood), the State of Massachusetts kit (for use on drywall, plaster), and the D-Lead® kit (for use on wood, drywall, plaster, and ferrous metal). If a substrate material is not listed above (such as stucco, or non-ferrous metals) then the recognized kits cannot be used on that substrate to comply with the testing requirements of the RRP rule.
