The Oklahoma Lead-Based Paint Management Act designates DEQ as the official agency for implementing the Lead-Based Paint (LBP) Management Program. The DEQ LBP and the Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) programs oversee certification and re-certification of firms and contractors who work with lead-based paint or perform renovations in LBP potentially contaminated areas. This program also inspects work sites, enforces requirements where necessary, performs customer assistance and outreach, and offers public education regarding the health risks of lead-based paint.

Firms certified by EPA or another state will need to obtain certification from DEQ in order to operate in Oklahoma. Accreditation is required of all educational institutions that provide lead-based paint training for certification purposes. DEQ charges nonrefundable fees for certification and accreditation services.

Please contact the DEQ LBP program for more information.
