Oregon Construction Contractors Board Certified Lead Based Paint Renovation Contractor License

By Jeff Sorg

(OnlineEd – Portland, Or) The Oregon Construction Contractors Board (CCB) offers a Certified Lead Based Paint Renovation (LBPR) Contractor License to contractors who have completed  their EPA Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) program. Oregon is approved by the EPA to administer the EPA’s  program for requirements on construction that might involve lead-based paint. The program:

  • Adopts lead renovation, repair and painting program rules
  • Certifies training providers
  • Certifies contractors in states that do no have a state program
  • Approves states to “take over” the program
Contractors who renovate target housing or child-occupied facilities need to have the certified LBR contractor license. “Renovation” means, for example:
  • Modification of painted or varnished doors
  • Restoring building surfaces
  • Window repair, removal, or replacement
  • Painting preparation (sanding, scraping, ect)
  • Removal of walls, ceilings, and plumbing
  • Interior controls that disturb painted surfaces
Renovation does not include “minor repair and maintenance.”  Minor repair and maintenance means
  • 6 square feet or less of painted interior surface; or
  • 20 square feet or less of painted exterior surface.
“Target housing” is housing built before 1978, except for:
  • Housing built for the elderly or persons with disabilities; or
  • Housing without a bedroom
“Child-Occupied facilities” mean a building, or part thereof, regularly used by the same child under age 6. Examples of child-occupied facilities are:
  • Day care centers
  • Preschools
  • Kindergarten classrooms
  • Restrooms commonly used by children
Child-occupied facilities likely do not include:
  • Sunday school classrooms used weekly
  • Supermarkets
  • Hallways in public schools
 RPR training is an 8-hour, hands-on, live course that business owners or employees are required to complete in order to become certified. The certification is valid for 5 years.
