(a) Failed to comply with a requirement of chapter 70.103 RCW or the rules adopted thereunder; or
(b) Obtained or retained accreditation or certification by error, misrepresentation, or fraud.
(2) The department may assess a civil penalty against any person who engages in lead-based paint activities or renovation without certification from the department or who offers to provide or provides lead-based paint training courses without accreditation from the department.
