Question (23002-18015)

I am an owner/agent for an apartment community built prior to 1978.  In 2004, testing of a random sample of units was completed by a certified testing firm.  The results were negative for lead paint but positive for lead dust.  With the positive lead dust result, are we required to comply with the RRP Rule?

Answer

No.  As long as the determination that the units are free of lead-based paint was made by an inspector or risk assessor certified by EPA or by an authorized State or Tribal program, renovations in the building are not covered by the RRP Rule.
