Description
Excerpt: 1. See Chapters 3, 5 and 16 for guidance on when a lead-based paint inspection is appropriate. A lead-based paint inspection will determine: -- Whether lead-based paint is present in a house, dwelling unit, residential building, or housing development, including common areas and exterior surfaces; and -- If present, which building components contain lead-based paint. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) define an inspection as a surface-by-surface investigation to determine the presence of lead-based paint (see 40 CFR part 745 and Title X of the 1992 Housing and Community Development Act). The sampling protocols in this chapter fulfill that definition.
