BOMA San Francisco Members:
- Be EPA certified, and
- Follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.
- To comply with the new regulation, those working on older sites will need to invest in lead-testing kits, plastic sheeting, respirators, protective clothing and other lead-safety materials.
- To learn more about how you can meet these requirements contact the National Lead Information Center at 1-800-424LEAD (5323) or visit www.epa.gov/lead.
On May 6, 2010 the EPA issued advance notice of its intention to regulate the renovation, repair and painting of public and commercial buildings under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). BOMA members have until July 6 to submit comments. The EPA will then likely propose lead-safe work practices and other requirements for renovations on the exteriors of public and commercial buildings, and determine whether lead-based paint hazards are created by interior renovation, repair and painting projects in public and commercial buildings. BOMA is joining forces with other real estate associations to submit comments to EPA in opposition of any new requirements.
