Question (23002-19659) 

Must maintenance workers at kindergartens and elementary schools become certified renovators if they perform renovations covered by the RRP Rule in the portions of the school that are child-occupied facilities?  Are the schools or school systems then required to become certified renovation firms?

Answer

On or after April 22, 2010, all renovations covered by the RRP Rule must be directed by certified renovators and must be performed by certified renovators or individuals trained by a certified renovator. The RRP rule requires any firm, including a local government agency, that performs, offers, or claims to perform renovations to be certified by EPA.
