Federal and state laws regulate contractors that perform work on homes and buildings that may contain lead-based paint.
The Construction Contractors Board (CCB) requires contractors(businesses) and individuals that perform certain work on “target housing” and “child-occupied facilities” to have specific licenses dependent on the work being performed.
Contractors that renovate older homes or buildings regularly used by young children (that may contain lead-based paint) must apply for a certified Lead-Based Paint Renovation (LBPR) Contractor’s license. Click here for more information on CCB’s LBPR license and requirements.
