This practice combines visual assessment for the presence of deteriorated paint, settled dust, painted debris, and paint chips with environmental sampling of settled dust to report the leaded-dust hazard level at the time of sample collection, in and around single-family residential dwellings or child-occupied facilities following abatement and other lead-hazard reduction activities.
This practice also addresses clearance examinations that may include soil sampling, for example when soil abatement has been performed.
This practice provides a procedure for determining whether regulatory requirements for dust-lead levels and soil-lead levels have been met, and, consequently whether a work area, or a portion of a work 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.
