Updating clearance standards for lead in dust on floors and windows for lead-based paint programs
This rulemaking will align Commerce with the Environmental Protection Agency’s updated clearance standards for lead in dust on floors and windows in homes or children’s facilities, and existing definitions for “landlord” and “property manager.” The proposed rules also amend certain training and certification requirements to reflect programmatic updates and to clarify language for firms and employees.
REMOTE PUBLIC HEARING – SEPT. 9
The department filed a CR-102 notice of proposed rulemaking on July 7, 2021, with intended date of adoption on Oct. 1, 2021. A public hearing will be held remotely at 11:00 a.m. on Sept. 9, 2021 using this Zoom link.
