EPA in the News

    • July 22, 2010 — EPA announced the preliminary results of its effort to evaluate lead test kits under the Agency’s Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) program. Learn more about the ETV results.
    • July 13, 2010 — The State of Massachusetts became the ninth state in the nation to administer and enforce a Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) program. This program mandates that contractors working in homes and child-occupied facilities built before 1978 be trained and certified in lead-safe work practices by the state of Massachusetts. Similar EPA requirements are in place nationwide, but the Massachusetts program will operate in lieu of EPA’s program in that state, allowing for greater local oversight. EPA’s authorization of Massachusetts’ program is based on a certification from the Attorney General that the Massachusetts’ program is at least as protective as the EPA RRP program and provides adequate enforcement. For more information about Massachusetts’ new program, including information on applying for certification or finding training, contact the Massachusetts Division of Occupational Safety at 617-969-7177visit the state Web site.

Read the press release, and read more about the rule ending the opt-out provision.
    • July 2, 2010 — EPA announced that it will extend the comment period for its proposed Lead Clearance rule until August 6.
