Under Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rules, anyone conducting renovation, repair or painting work for compensation in a pre-1978 residence, childcare facility or school must be trained, EPA certified, and use lead-safe work practices. This rule includes rental property owners and property managers. For more information about the EPA Renovation, Repair and Painting rule (RRP) go to

Under State of California law it is a violation for anyone to use work practices that create a lead hazard.
