Lead Regulatory changes and Determinator Refresher Trainings

On December 1, 2017, the Department of Public Health’s Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program’s amended regulations will go into effect. Significant changes include lowering the definition of lead poisoning to a venous blood lead level of 10 µg/dL and streamlining the deleading requirements, making it easier and more affordable for owners to delead.

Please see the letter from Terry Howard, Acting Director, CLPPP regarding Lead Determinators training.
