In general, anyone who is paid to perform work that disturbs paint in housing and child-occupied facilities built before 1978 (Dec. 31, 1977 and back) must be certified. This includes all firms, even sole proprietorships.
Examples of the types of firms covered:
- Residential rental property owners/managers
- General contractors
- Special trade contractors, including
- Window Installers
Firms can’t advertise or perform renovation activities covered by the regulation in homes or child-occupied facilities, even though they are certified renovators, built before 1978 without firm certification.
