Under Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rules, anyone conducting renovation, repair or painting work for compensation in a pre-1978 residence, childcare facility or school must be trained, EPA certified, and use lead-safe work practices. This rule includes rental property owners and property managers. For more information about the EPA Renovation, Repair and Painting rule (RRP) go to
