The EPA announced several amendments to the so-called RRP rule dealing with lead paint that will affect contractors working on buildings built prior to 1978. Of most immediate importance is that while the the rule became fully effective on April 22, EPA will not take any enforcement action against firms that have applied for certification before April 22 and are just waiting for their paperwork. For full details of the amendments visit the EPA Web site at http://www.epa.gov/lead/new.htm.
