Lead Abatement and Certification Program
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, Air Pollution Control Division is responsible for developing and implementing lead certification and abatement regulations for child occupied facilities and target housing, as mandated by state statute (25-5-1101 C.R.S., et seq.). Specifically, the rules will govern the inspection and assessment of lead based paint and lead based paint hazards, lead contaminated soil and lead contaminated dust, and establish requirements and standards for the abatement of lead based paint hazards.
The Colorado State Legislature has adopted the concept of "lead-safe" housing instead of "lead-free" housing. Commensurate with this concept, the goal of the state regulations will not be the removal of all lead-based paint, but the creation of housing and facilities where no significant lead-based paint hazard is present.
