Effective September 26, 2000, individuals engaged in lead-based paint (LBP) activities in "target housing" and "child-occupied facilities" in the State of Tennessee, must be certified by the Commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation. The Lead-based Paint Abatement Program is located in the Division of Solid Waste Management.
