EPA's Lead Safe Practices - Contractors who perform renovation, repairs, and painting jobs in pre-1978 housing and child-occupied facilities must, before beginning work, provide owners, tenants,
and child-care facilities with a copy of EPA’s lead hazard information pamphlet:
Renovate Right: Important Lead Hazard Information for Families, Child Care
Providers, and Schools.
Contractors must document compliance with this requirement.
After April 22, 2010, federal law will require you to be certified and to use leadsafe
work practices. To become certified, renovation contractors must submit an
application for firm certification and fee payment to EPA. EPA will begin processing
applications on October 22, 2009. The Agency has up to 90 days after receiving a
complete request for certification to approve or disapprove the application. [more]

Wolmanized® Residential Outdoor® wood is protected by copper
azole preservative. For several years, this has involved a formulation denoted Copper Azole
type B (CA-B). This preservative is currently transitioning to a type C with reduced copper content.
Because of species differences, western species are being treated, or will be treated, with an amine version, CA-C, while, for eastern woods, the micronized copper version (abbreviated μCA-C) will generally be used. Micronization refers to the use of small copper particles instead of dissolved copper; this imparts slightly different properties which affect retention, color, and corrosivity.
The timing of the transition depends on the speed of standards acceptance, local markets, and plant modifications.[more]
