No.  Congress requires EPA to impose a fee on certified contractors that is sufficient to recover the costs of administering and enforcing the Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule.  All applicants for firm certification must submit the $300 fee as part of their application.  A firm's certification is effective for 5 years.
