Under the RRP Rule, can the certified renovator comply with the rules by keeping records regarding his certification and employee training electronically, provided he can display them on a hand held device or laptop on the job site?

Yes. The Lead Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) Rule does not specify the format in which these documents must be kept, but they must be available at the work site. Documents are not available if they cannot be viewed. Certified renovators must have with them at the work site copies of their initial course completion certificate and their most recent refresher course completion certificate. Certified renovators are also responsible for providing training to non-certified workers on the work practices they will be using in performing their assigned tasks. The renovation firm must keep records showing what training was provided to workers, but these records need not be available at the work site.
