rrp ruleWASHINGTON — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced 16 enforcement actions for violations of the lead-based paint Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule (RRP), according to a press release.

The enforcement actions address many serious RRP Rule violations that could result in harm to human health, including cases where the respondent failed to follow lead-safe work practices, the release stated.

According to the release, in several cases, respondents failed to obtain firm certification prior to performing or offering to perform renovation activities on pre-1978 homes.

Other alleged violations include the respondent's failure to provide EPA's "Renovate Right" pamphlet to homeowners and occupants, which is an important mechanism for helping homeowners and tenants understand the risks of lead-based paint hazards, the release noted.
