LEAD PAINT REGULATIONS
At its meeting on Sept 13th, 2017, the MA Department of Public Health Public Health Council approved the promulgation of amendments to 105 CMR 460.000: Lead Poisoning Prevention and Control. The revised regulations will became effective on Dec. 1, 2017. The changes lower the threshold blood level defining lead poisoning and thereby expand enforcement of the Lead Law. The amendment adopts the U.S. Centers for Disease Control suggested lead poisoning level in children with a venous blood lead level of 25µg/dL or greater to a blood lead level of 10µg/dL or greater. Additionally, the amendments remove the deleading standard for a small number of surfaces, specifically some surfaces currently considered “accessible/mouthable”, which could substantially reduce deleading costs. No changes were made to the disclosure requirements or process for home buyers and sellers, and no changes were made to the obligations for real estate brokers and salespersons.
