GUIDELINES FOR LEAD BASED PAINT HAZARDS
The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) issued an updated version of their Guidelines for the Evaluation and Control of Lead-Based Paint Hazards in Housing in July of this year. This document provides guidance for identification and control of lead paint hazards including renovations, inspections and risk assessments. The guidance is applicable for any lead hazard work associated with federally associated housing. Compliance is not required by law, but many municipalities reference this document within their regulations. Tioga provides lead-based paint inspections in conformance with the Guidelines as well as all applicable regional regulations.
