Title 24 published on 04-Apr-2017 04:06
The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 24 CFR Part 35 after this date.
This final rule amends HUD's lead-based paint regulations to reduce blood lead levels in children under age six (6) who reside in federally-owned or -assisted pre-1978 housing, formally adopting a revised definition of “elevated blood lead level” (EBLL) in children under the age of six (6), in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance. It also establishes more comprehensive testing and evaluation procedures for the housing where such children reside. This final rule also addresses certain additional elements of the CDC guidance pertaining to assisted housing and makes technical corrections and clarifications. This final rule, which follows HUD's September 1, 2016, proposed rule, takes into consideration public comments submitted in response to the proposed rule.
This proposed rule would amend HUD's lead-based paint regulations on reducing blood lead levels in children under age 6 who reside in federally-owned or -assisted pre-1978 housing and formally adopt the revised definition of “elevated blood lead levels” in children under the age of 6 in accordance with guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and establish more comprehensive testing and evaluation procedures for the housing where such children reside. In 2012, the CDC issued guidance revising its definition of elevated blood lead level in children under age 6 to be a blood lead level based on the distribution of blood lead levels in the national population. Since CDC's revision of its definition, HUD has applied the revised definition to funds awarded under its Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control grant program and its Lead Hazard Reduction Demonstration grant program, and has updated its Guidelines for the Evaluation and Control of Lead-Based Paint Hazards in Housing to reflect this definition. CDC is continuing to consider, with respect to evolution of scientific and medical understanding, how best to identify childhood blood lead levels for which environmental interventions are recommended. Through this rule, HUD formally adopts through regulation the CDC's approach to the definition of “elevated blood lead levels” in children under the age of 6 and addresses the additional elements of the CDC guidance pertaining to assisted housing.
HUD's civil money penalty regulations currently provide that the Director of HUD's Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control, or the Director's designee, may initiate a civil money penalty action against any person who knowingly violates the Residential Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction Act of 1992. HUD's Lead-Based Paint Poisoning Prevention regulation identifies the Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control as the approval authority, after consultation with the Environmental Protection Agency, for lead-safe work practices courses that may qualify supervisors and workers to perform interim controls of lead-based paint hazards. Because HUD has changed the name of the Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control to the Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes, this final rule conforms HUD regulations to reference this new name. This final rule also provides a savings provision that preserves under the Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes all actions taken under the Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control.
