The most recent amendments to the RRP regulation became effective on 

October 4, 2011. The regulations and associated guidance documents can be 

found on our webpage at http://epa.gov/lead/brochure-contractors-lead-safety-during-renovations. 

As a result of these amendments, EPA has updated compliance assistance and 

education materials relating to various aspects of the RRP program. These 

updated materials include: 

New Version of Renovate Right Required 

Renovate Right: Important Lead Hazard Information for Families, Child Care 

Providers, and Schools 


Renovators must now begin providing this revised version to owners and 

occupants. However, you may use the older version if you have printed stock 

remaining. In that case, please be sure to include the replacement page 10 which 

can be found at http://epa.gov/lead/pubs/insert.pdf
