Lead Abatement and Certification Program
The national Lead-Based Paint Program went into effect in 1998. Under this program, only certified lead-based paint contractors can do lead-based paint work in residential dwellings and child-occupied facilities built before 1978 (lead was banned as an additive in house paint in 1978). Examples of lead-based paint activities are inspections for lead in paint, risk assessments to find lead-based paint hazards, and abatement, which is designed to permanently remove lead-based paint hazards.
