For All concerned with RRP, NOW is the time to make some improvements to the law. SUMMARY: EPA is proposing minor revisions to the Lead Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) rule that published in the Federal Register on April 22, 2008, and the Lead-based Paint (LBP) Activities rule that published in the Federal Register on August 29, 1996. The proposed revisions are intended to improve the day-to-day function of these programs by reducing burdens to industry and the EPA, and by clarifying language for training providers, while retaining the protections provided by the original rules. EPA is proposing to eliminate the requirement that the renovator refresher training have a hands-on component. The Agency is also proposing to remove jurisdiction-specific certification and accreditation requirements under the LBP Activities program. Currently, this program requires that training providers, firms and individuals seek certification in each jurisdiction (e.g., a State) where the organization or person wants to work. In addition, EPA is adding clarifying language to the requirements for training providers under both the RRP and LBP Activities programs.
