Lead-Based Paint Activities; Bridges and Structures; Training, Accreditation, and Certification Rule and Model State Plan Rule

a.k.a. Lead-Based Paint Activities; Bridges and Structures

RIN: 2070-AC64 (What's this?)

Docket No.: Not yet available (What's this?)

Current Phase: Pre-Proposal (What's this?)

The Residential Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction Act of 1992 amended the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) to require EPA to promulgate regulations governing lead-based paint (LBP) activities to ensure that individuals engaged in such activities are properly trained, that LBP training programs are accredited, and that contractors engaged in such activities are certified.

In addition, EPA must promulgate a Model State program which may be adopted by any State which seeks to administer and enforce a State Program. The EPA promulgated regulations for LBP activities in target housing and child occupied facilities as well as training and certification of training programs for LBP activities in 1996 (see 40 CFR 745). Regulations for LBP activities in public and commercial buildings and bridges and other structures are still under development.
