Common renovation activities like sanding, cutting and demolition can create hazardous lead dust and chips by disturbing lead-based paint, which can be harmful to adults and children. To protect against this risk, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued the Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule (RRP Rule) that became effective on April 22, 2010.
Oregon enforces federal regulations for contractors working on housing or child-occupied facilities built before 1978.
For more information about licensing, visit the Oregon Construction Contractors Board.
To read the rule, visit the Oregon Health Authority’s Lead-based Paint Program.
