Compliance and enforcement mechanisms in a lead paint law
The Secretariat of the Strategic Approach to Chemicals Management (SAICM) and the University of Cape Town (UCT) are launching a new Community of Practice (CoP) on Lead in Paint to bring representatives from different sectors together and to create a learning network around issues related to the elimination of Lead Paint. This is a summary of the discussion on Compliance and enforcement mechanisms in a lead paint law, which took place on 10 November 2020.
Presenters: Amanda Rawls (ABA-ROLI), Negin Mostaghim (USEPA), Evelyn Rivera-Ocasio (USEPA)
The fourth Lead in Paint Community of Practice (LiP CoP) discussion, presented by Amanda Rawls, ABA-ROLI, Negin Mostaghim, US EPA, and Evelyn Rivera-Ocasio, US EPA, reviewed three questions focusing on compliance and enforcement in a lead paint law. Developing effective compliance and enforcement systems is important to ensuring the success of laws. The purpose of enforcement is to provide incentive for the regulated community – those subject to requirements in the law -- to follow the law.
