Yes. Federal agencies and their employees must comply with all Federal, State, interstate, and local requirements, both substantive and procedural, respecting lead-based paint in the same manner and to the same extent as any non-governmental entity. In addition, the RRP Rule requires all renovations performed after April 22, 2010, to be performed by a certified firm. The definition of "firm" includes federal agencies. Therefore, if the employees of a federal agency are performing renovations, the agency must be a certified firm and must follow the RRP Rule when performing the renovation.
