LEAD PAINT CERTIFICATES FOR RENTAL HOUSING - Testing for lead-contaminated dust an inspector must collect dust samples from each room in the unit. Each dust sample must be analyzed by a qualified laboratory, and the results must fall below specified levels.

Prior to testing for lead dust the inspector must verify that there is no defective paint on the interior or exterior.
