EPA Lead-Safe Certified

July 12, 2010


Bay View Builders is now a U. S. EPA Lead-Safe Certified Firm

The EPA has a new program that oversees all work in homes built prior to 1978 (Renovation, Repair and Painting – RRP) that has some very significant fines if not followed. Part of the program is now in effect but much of it won’t happen until late April, 2010. At that time any construction company working in a house built prior to 1978 must be certified by the EPA. Certification takes a minimum of 90 days, but must be done. EPA Lead Compliance Guide
