Question (23002-25349)

Will there be any Phase Two kits approved as a result of the recent ETV evaluations?

Answer

Based on the results of the recent ETV evaluations no new test kits were approved that meet both the false negative and false positive performance criteria. However one kit did meet the false negative performance criterion for drywall, plaster, ferrous metal and wood, and was recognized for use by certified renovators on August 31, 2010. Thus, after September 1, 2010, EPA will continue to recognize 3M LeadCheckTM, the State of Massachusetts kit, and the newly recognized D-Lead® kit.
