AL to administer and enforce a RRP program

by WOHe

November 16, 2010 — The State of Alabama became the tenth 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 Alabama. Similar EPA requirements have been in place nationwide since April 22, 2010, but the Alabama program will operate in lieu of EPA’s program in that state, allowing for greater local oversight.

EPA’s authorization of Alabama’s program is based on the application letter from Alabama’s Governor, Bob Riley, and a certification from the Attorney General, Troy King, that the Alabama program is at least as protective as the EPA RRP program and provides adequate enforcement.

For more information about Alabama’s new program, including information on applying for certification or finding training, contact the contact the Alabama Lead Program at 334-206-5373 or 205-348-4667, or visit the state website at www.Alabamasafestate.ua.edu or www.adph.org/lead.e state website at www.Alabamasafestate.ua.edu or www.adph.org/lead.
