Commercial painters and renovators are invited to submit comments and take part in a public meeting on the federal government’s plan to expand the lead-safe renovation rules to commercial and public projects.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced May 13 in the Federal Register that it will hold a public meeting from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. June 26 in Washington, D.C., to discuss and collect data concerning expanding the Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) rule.

The EPA is inviting interested parties and stakeholders to take part in the public meeting and submit comments regarding expanding the RRP Rule.

Those interested in joining the upcoming public meeting must request to participate by June 3.

The agency also announced it has reopened its public comment period on the proposed rule expansion until July 12.

Delayed Implementation

Originally, EPA’s RRP proposal for exterior renovations for public and commercial buildings was set to be issued by Sept. 14, 2012, and finalized February 2014.

However, its implementation was delayed following a settlement with parties who petitioned for review of the residential RRP rule. The residential RRP Rule, which went into effect in April 2010, mandates lead-safe certification and work practices for contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb more than six feet of lead-based paint in most pre-1978 homes, child-care facilities and schools.

In settling the cases, the EPA agreed to commence rulemaking to address renovations in public and commercial buildings, to the extent that those renovations create lead-based paint hazards.

What is being done to prevent these new paints that are being developed from having the environmental impact in 50 years that lead paints are having today?
