General Info - Statewide Certification

The purpose of the Maryland Lead Paint Accreditation program is to oversee lead poisoning prevention activities to reduce the incidence of childhood lead poisoning. One of the activities included is the oversight of lead paint abatement work. This work includes any activity that eliminates or reduces lead paint hazards, including paint removal, replacement of components, encapsulation, repainting or inspection. Examples of people who provide lead paint services include contractors, workers, supervisors, and inspectors. If not detected early, children with high levels of lead in their bodies can suffer from hyperactivity, slowed growth, damage to their brain and nervous system, hearing problems and headaches.
