What if I own property and have my own maintenance staff to do RRP work, or want to do the RRP work myself?

DLS does not require a property owner in such instances to be licensed as a Lead-Safe Renovation Contractor, but instead will grant a Lead-Safe Renovation Contractor Licensing Waiver to those persons, companies or other entities that perform renovation work at their own property using their own regular employees or Responsible Persons.

To apply for a Lead-Safe Contractor Licensing Waiver:

  1. Download the Lead-Safe Contractor Licensing Waiver; complete the application.
  2. Submit a letter signed by the property owner, department manager or company official requesting a Lead-Safe Renovation Contractor Licensing Waiver, which includes an affirmation that the Licensing Waiver will be used solely for Renovation Work which conforms to the limitations set by 454 CMR 22.03(3)(a) and that the requirements set forth at 454 CMR 22.11(3) and (4) will be met on all Renovation Projects.
  3. Attach a copy of your Deleading Supervisor or RRP training certificate.
  4. Mail or hand-deliver the completed application and accompanying documents to our Boston office for review. Allow 2-3 weeks for us to process your application. We will contact you if we need more information. Please note: incomplete applications that are submitted will cause the processing time to be delayed considerably. After approval, we will mail your license waiver to you.
