Rules and Regulations
Contractors and firms conducting lead-based paint activities in the state are required to be licensed in Nebraska

EPA Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) Rule

EPA has amended the Clearance Testing Requirements for the Renovation, Repair, and Painting Program (RRP). The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has published a rule update authorizing EPA-Certified Renovators the option to collect paint chip samples for laboratory analysis in order to identify lead-bearing surfaces. 40 CFR Part 745 states in part, 

“In those states that do not permit persons other than certified inspectors or risk assessors to sample or test for lead-based paint, certified renovators will not be able to exercise this option.” 

Federal Register/Vol. 76, No. 151/Friday, August 5, 2011/Rules and Regulations, page 47,924. 

In Nebraska, paint chip sampling must be performed by a Nebraska-licensed lead-based paint inspector or risk assessor. EPA-certified renovators who are not Nebraska-licensed lead-based paint inspectors or risk assessors will not be able to utilize paint chip sampling to identify lead-bearing surfaces.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Nebraska Lead-Based Paint Program at (402) 471-0386.
