What is XRF?
XRF is a portable x-ray machine (x-ray fluorescence) that can identify lead underneath surfaces.
How do I comply with Local Law 31?
- Identify units with children under the age of 6 that resides in the apartment - before the August 2021 due date and conduct the XRF Test in that unit.
- Resides meaning - spends more than 10+ hours/week in a unit.
- Note that the remaining units (without children under the of 6) will require XRF inspections within the next 4 years.
This will apply to multiple-dwellings which now includes 1-2 family homes/units where the owner does not reside.
