Rules & Regulations

In April 2010, regulations impacting renovation work in pre-1978 residential housing (target housing) and child occupied facilities became effective nation-wide. These rules require at least one certified lead-safe renovator per renovation, and the use of specific lead-safe work practices. In Iowa, the Iowa Dept of Public Health has the authority to implement this program. These rules are found in 641 - Chapter 70 of the Iowa Administrative Code. PDF
