Lead

I am a contractor a couple years from retirement and I am closing down my business. I do not plan to become certified under the RRP Rule. My understanding is that I can continue working on homes built after 1978?

The Lead Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) Rule does not apply to renovations in housing built in 1978 or later.
