May I use the pamphlet “Protect Your Family From Lead in Your Home” to meet my obligations for pre-renovation education under the RRP Rule?

Answer: No.  As of December 22, 2008, only the pamphlet “Renovate Right” may be used to comply with the pre-renovation education requirements of the RRP Rule.  “Protect Your Family” is still available for use during real-estate sales and lease transactions and for general information.
