New York DKI Member Companies Host Seminars On How the New EPA Lead Regulations Will Impact the Insurance Industry on Long Island and New York City.
In April 2010, new rules on lead contamination developed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) went into effect for contractors that disturb painted surfaces in buildings constructed prior to 1978. These Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RPR) regulations require all contractors to:
- Become an EPA certified firm
- Have certified lead renovators on staff
- Check painted surfaces to determine if they contain lead
- Utilize specific types of engineering controls, containments and work practices
- Perform specific cleaning tasks, verification and test their work area
Unfortunately, these new EPA Lead Regulations will have a major impact on the Insurance Industry on Long Island and New York City. Insurance Companies, Insurance Agents, Insurance Brokers, and Insurance Adjusters will all have to adjust to the new regulations that are now required of restoration contractors on property damage claims in structures built before 1979.
