Essential Maintenance Practices (EMP)

Compliance with the Essential Maintenance Practices Law (EMP), also known as the Vermont Lead Law is required for all rental properties in Vermont that were built before 1978. This law also applies to contractors working on, renovating, or maintaining pre-1978 properties and childcare facilities built before 1978.
