This practice combines visual assessment for the presence of deteriorated paint, surface dust, painted debris, and paint chips with environmental sampling of surface dust to determine whether a lead hazard exists at the time of sample collection, following abatement, other lead-hazard reduction activities, or building maintenance or modification activities.
This practice addresses clearance examination of single-family residential dwellings and child-occupied facilities.
This practice also addresses clearance examinations that may include soil sampling, for example when soil abatement has been performed.
This practice includes a procedure for determining whether regulatory requirements for lead clearance levels for dust and, where warranted, soil have been met, and, consequently whether a clearance area, passes or fails a clearance examination.
NOTE 1 - This practice is consistent with that portion of "clearance" described in 40 CFR Part 745 for abatement, and in 24 CFR 35 for lead-hazard reduction activities other than abatement.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
