The Environmental Protection Agency has issued a final rule extending the certifications of thousands of individual renovators under the Lead: Renovation Repair and Painting Program (LRRP). This is good news for more than 200,000 certified renovators who would otherwise have been shut out of the opportunity to take advantage of online-only training included in revisions proposed by the EPA to the refresher training requirement.
NAHB Remodelers called for this extension during its November meeting with OMB while the rule was under review, and has repeatedly highlighted the implications and recommended actions to the EPA and the White House.
Under the final rule:
- Individual renovators who received certification on or before March 31, 2010, now have until March 31, 2016, to get re-certified.
- Individual renovators who received certification between April 1, 2010, and March 31, 2011, will have one year added to their five-year certification.
- Subsequent certifications for renovators receiving the extension will be five years.
