The amendment, which will change the notification of lead-based paint activity from fifteen days to five business days, will become effective October 4, 2020.

The Toxic Substances Program’s objective is to prevent the release of lead-based paint, asbestos, and Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) to the environment resulting in less exposure of these substances to people, reducing potential health hazards.
