Occupational Knowledge International spearheaded efforts to launch the world’s first certification program for paints without added lead. The certification is intended to assist governments to regulate the paint industry with independent third-party conformity assessment and provide an even playing field for responsible paint companies.

Lead Safe Paint® is an independent, third party certification program that provides assurance to consumers that the paint they are purchasing contains less than 90 parts per million (ppm) lead. Additional information on the certification program is found here:
