EPA’s Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule requires that firms performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities and pre-schools built before 1978 be certified by EPA (or an EPA-authorized state), use certified renovators who are trained by EPA-approved training providers and follow lead-safe work practices.

RB Painting applied to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for certification to conduct Renovation, Repair and Painting Activities in target housing and child-occupied facilities. Pursuant to 40 CFR Part 745, Subpart E, our renovation, repair and painting firm is certified. The certificate is below. This certification expires on February 28, 2027 and is valid in All EPA Administered States, Tribes, and Territories.
The EPA firm certification is subject to the following restrictions:
1) Individual states and Indian tribes, whether authorized or not, are not required to accept EPA certification and may accept or reject it under its own authority. EPA certification does not relieve us of any obligations we may have to any State or Indian tribe regarding renovation, repair and painting activities.
2) EPA certification is specific and limited as described above.
3) In advertising the EPA certification, firms must indicate clearly that the firm is certified only for purposes of Section 402 of TSCA. Failure to accurately state EPA certification conditions could result in EPA suspending or withdrawing certification.
4) EPA may conduct audits and/or inspections to ensure continued compliance with regulatory standards, and may revoke or suspend its certification if subsequent alterations or deviations result with the firm no longer meeting the standards found at 40 CFR Part 745, Subpart E.
