- Be certified by EPA to conduct RRP work,
- Provide the Renovate Right brochure (PDF) to owners and tenants before beginning work, and
- Minimize exposure to dust and paint chips created during work.
To report a possible violation to the above requirements, please provide as much information as possible. When completed, press the send button and the form will be sent directly to the EPA Pacific Southwest Lead team.
