What do you need to do to become a certified firm?
Firm certification is easy and straightforward – you need only submit a short application, and submit it with fee to EPA. The form, and associated material, is available on EPA’s website at http://epa.gov/lead/pubs/toolkits.htm#renovator. You should complete and submit this form without delay. Certified firms will be able to advertise that they are certified by EPA under the Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) program, and will also be given rights to use EPA’s new “Lead-Safe Certified Firm” logo.
Remember, to fully comply with this regulation, certain of your key employees may need to obtain individual certification (by taking a one-day certification course) in addition to your firm certification. Visit http://epa.gov/lead/rrp/contractors.html to learn how to become a certified renovator.
