Whenever any renovation, remodeling, repair, or painting is undertaken in a pre-1978 residential housing unit, a grantee, public agency, subrecipient, property owner, or manager must identify the extent and level of the proposed work, the standards and requirements that will apply, and that the proper LBP hazard reduction activities are carried out by qualified workers or contractors. Regardless of whether the work will simply be repairing interior or exterior building components as the result of normal wear and tear at unit sale or lease, or conducting substantial rehabilitation, any worker or contractor carrying out lead-based paint hazard reduction activities must be trained and qualified. These requirements set forth here apply not only to the standards for routine maintenance and painting, but also for full lead abatement, which will permanently eliminate the identified hazards.
When lead hazard reduction activities are complete, clearance must be completed. Watch the Clearance Examination Highlights video to learn the basics of how to complete a clearance examination.
