Some states are adopting the EPA Rules and running the program themselves, for a list click here, you may want to check your state DEQ dept as well. I talked to the person in charge of our state program (yet to be enacted) and he "assured" me that the Firm Certification fee and Certified Renovator training issued by the EPA would be honored by the state. The states do not get any funding from the EPA to administer the "EPA Program", but if they take it over, they get the funding (fees paid by us) to manage state enforcement.

No, you do not have to be certified. You cannot enter into a contract on "target housing" (pre 1978) if you are not certified though, unless it has been tested lead free from a certified inspector ($500-800 fee).

Just a reminder, the training can range from 150-300, Firm Certification is another 300, and should have already been turned in if you plan to be compliant by April 22.

I am going to call and check tomorrow. There is a place in Lenexa that offers a class. I need to call Brock in Witchita and talk to him about what all we need to do. He has spoken with some high ups for the state. I will report back when I get it figured out. I actually missed this webinar . Anyone see it? If so please post a link.

I just got off the phone with a nice lady who is in charge of the training. She told me that I would have to get cert myself and my firm. Also the state is handling enforcement here, and I asked how they planned on doing so. She said it would most likely be when building permits are issued.

She also said there would be a hotline so you could report when someone is working without cert. SO maybe this will kill off some of these shade tree painters/re modelers that are undercutting our business.

Don't you think there are not Attorney firms waiting for this? Watch for the ads on TV. Most to all enforcement will come through complaints.Some legit Contractors are looking at this in their favor and will not hesitate to use. EPA or State will just contact the Contractor named in the complaint for documentation and those who have it are ok. Those who don't $32,000.00 is listed in the rule.

First of all attorneys aren't gonna go after these guys who are working dirt cheap, with no insurance. I will be one of those contractors reporting these people, but with that said there is an old saying where I am from, you can't get blood from a turnip.

I hope it helps to weed out the ones out there undercutting the legitimate business', I guess we will see. My state is broke, and I read this morning in the paper they are laying off 3000 state employees to try and balance the budget, so I hope the money for enforcement is coming from the feds.
