This report is Section I of four 'stand alone' documents that can be used by road controlling authorities, maintenance engineers, and industrial painting contractors when carrying out removal or maintenance of lead-based paints on steel roading structures, to comply with their statutory obligations and minimise effects on the environment and risks to workers and public health.

Section I contains the results of a survey of local and regional authorities to determine their requirements when issuing a consent for this work. The number of roading structures in New Zealand that are coated with lead-based paint are quantified.
