We have received your electronic mail inquiry of February 24, 1995, regarding Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) definition of "insignificant damage, wear, or corrosion of existing lead-containing paint" as stated in OSHA Instruction CPL 2-2.58.

This matter requires further research. We are attempting to respond as expediently as possible, taking into consideration the need for a thorough and responsive reply.

I've been searching the OSHA interpretations to no avail trying to figure out what "insignificant damage, wear, or corrosion of existing lead-containing paint" means (see CPL 2-2.58). Is there an official OSHA opinion?
