Firms that Require Certification
In general, anyone who is paid to perform work that disturbs paint in housing and child-occupied facilities built before 1978 must be certified. This includes all firms, even sole proprietorships.
Examples of the types of firms covered:
- Residential rental property owners/managers
- General contractors; and
- Special trade contractors, including painters, plumbers, carpenters and electricians.
Firms cannot advertise or perform renovation activities covered by the RRP Rule in homes or child-occupied facilities built before 1978 without firm certification.
