According to the Vermont Department of Health, the accepted way of filing for the yearly EMP Compliance has changed and can now only be filed online.
Essential Maintenance Practices, otherwise known as EMP, is enforced by the Vermont Department of Health, and states that “all owners and managers must complete Essential Maintenance Practices in rental housing built prior to 1978 to reduce the risk of lead poisoning in resident children (Vermont Housing Financing Agency, 2019).” An annual submission of EMP Compliance is required by Vermont law of rental owners and managers and childcare providers.
The shift of EMP Compliance to paperless statements is effective immediately.
