This process has given us greater reach to accomplish our goal and allows us to provide contractors with a low cost, easy to use, and accurate test kit to help them remain in compliance with this important rule.
NATICK, MA (PRWEB) July 27, 2010
Hybrivet Systems, Inc. announced that its flagship product, LeadCheck® Swabs, has maintained its status as one of only two EPA-recognized lead test kits under the Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule (RRP). The rule was put into effect April 22, 2010 in an effort to promote lead-safe practices, something that Hybrivet Systems has been passionate about since their founding in 1987.
“For over 20 years, our goal has been to dramatically reduce lead-poisoning, especially in children where the effects are most severe and permanent,” said Dr. Marcia Stone, Hybrivet President and inventor of LeadCheck®.
After recent EPA testing procedures on LeadCheck® and other manufacturer-submitted kits, results were released to the public on Thursday, July 22nd. There it was determined that no new lead test kits met the stringent criteria, and that LeadCheck® Swabs will continue to play a central role in combating lead-poisoning under the RRP Rule.
“This process has given us greater reach to accomplish our goal and allows us to provide contractors with a low cost, easy to use, and accurate test kit to help them remain in compliance with this important rule,” said Stone. “We’re also excited about the opportunity to help the states that are administering their own lead program, including our home state of Massachusetts.”
