International – The UN Environment Programme (UNEP) has published guidance on lead paint law compliance and enforcement, which are critical for the effective implementation of laws limiting lead in paint. The report outlines actions governments could take to ensure compliance with and enforcement of lead paint laws. The guidance also provides examples of actions that paint manufacturers and importers can take to demonstrate compliance. The guidance document lays out several actions to foster compliance with lead paint laws. These include drafting clear, enforceable lead paint laws that clarify who is regulated, what types of paint are regulated, the lead limit, when requirements become mandatory, and how to document compliance.  For the full text, click here.
