This must be documented with procedures and pictures of the work in progress upon the completion. The Contractor must keep the Records for a period of 3 years.
RRP rules indicate that Contractors can be held liable civilly for a fine of $37,500.00 per violation and additionally a criminal fine for an additional $37,500.00, and even Imprisonment or all of the above.
