EPA certifies private firms, public housing agencies, local and state government agencies, and non-profit organizations that perform or offer to perform lead-based paint services. In addition to larger firms and agencies, small firms (including sole proprietor firms) must be certified in order to perform lead abatement activities. EPA also certifies individuals of the organizations. Individuals certified in one of five categories must work for certified firms, agencies, or non-profit organizations.
