Are Lead professionals required to be certified or licensed?
Several states have developed certification or licensing programs for individuals who identify and assess lead-based paint for hazards. Contact EPA for information on obtaining a list of state certified lead-based paint inspectors, risk assessors, and contractors. EPA also is working with States to establish a national training and certification program for lead-based paint professionals. Under this program, all lead-based paint inspectors, risk assessors and contractors must be trained and certified starting in 1999.
