Lead-Based Paint and Asbestos Information

Please note that any building-related activities, such as renovations, repairs, painting, and demolitions, may be subject to regulations governing the handling, removal and/or disposal of asbestos and lead-based paint.

Lead-Based Paint

If you have questions or concerns regarding lead-based paint and the rules around renovation, repair and painting, please visit the Oregon Health Authority website.

What are Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) enforcement procedures?

Construction Contractor Board (CCB) and the Oregon Health Board (OHA) have enforcement authority under Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS) § 431.920 to suspend, revoke or modify a certification to perform lead-based paint activities or renovation if the holder of the certification fails to comply with state or federal statutes or regulations related to lead-based paint. Certified firms and renovators in Oregon found to be non-complaint may be liable for civil penalties of up to $5,000 per violation, per day.

To file a complaint or report a possible violation of the Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule involving a CCB licensed contractor, contact the Construction Contractors Board:

To file a compliant or report a possible violation of the RRP Rule involving an individual not licensed by the CCB (landlords, property management companies, schools and child care facilities), contact the Oregon Health Authority:
