Let us explain the process…
Repair/Repaint/Install vendors must hold valid licenses and insurances to include:
Contractor License, EPA Renovator License, Workman’s Compensation Insurance and Liability Insurance
Certification of a fire escape must be submitted to the AHJ by a Design Professional or a licensed/certified Fire Escape Inspector registered in your state and cannot be submitted to the AHJ by the Repairs Vendor.
EPA Lead Paint guidelines apply on all Fire Escapes installed before 1978 which require Vendors to hold an EPA Renovator’s License in order to work on a Leaded Fire Escape. For more details on these guidelines, please click here.
