Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

410 ILCS 45/8

    (410 ILCS 45/8) (from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 1308)
    Sec. 8. Inspection of dwelling units occupied or previously occupied by a person with an elevated blood lead level. A representative of the Department, or delegate agency, shall, after notification that an occupant of a regulated facility is found to have an elevated blood lead level as set forth in Section 7, upon presentation of the appropriate credentials to the owner, occupant, or his representative, inspect the affected dwelling units, at reasonable times, for the purposes of ascertaining that all surfaces accessible to children are intact and in good repair, and for purposes of ascertaining the existence of lead-bearing substances. Such representative of the Department, or delegate agency, may remove samples or objects necessary for laboratory analysis, in the determination of the presence of lead-bearing substances in the regulated facilities.
    If a regulated facility is occupied by a child of less than 3 years of age with an elevated blood lead level, the Department, in addition to all other requirements of this Section, must inspect the dwelling unit and common place area of the child with an elevated blood lead level.
    Following the inspection, the Department or its delegate agency shall:
        (1) Prepare an inspection report which shall:
            (A) State the address of the dwelling unit.
            (B) Describe the scope of the inspection, the
inspection procedures used, and the method of ascertaining the existence of a lead-bearing substance in the dwelling unit.
            (C) State whether any lead-bearing substances
were found in the dwelling unit.
            (D) Describe the nature, extent, and location of
any lead-bearing substance that is found.
            (E) State either that a lead hazard does exist or
that a lead hazard does not exist. If a lead hazard does exist, the report shall describe the source, nature and location of the lead hazard. The existence of intact lead paint does not alone constitute a lead hazard for the purposes of this Section.
            (F) Give the name of the person who conducted the
inspection and the person to contact for further information regarding the inspection and the requirements of this Act.
        (2) Mail or otherwise provide a copy of the
inspection report to the property owner and to the occupants of the dwelling unit. If a lead-bearing substance is found, at the time of providing a copy of the inspection report, the Department or its delegate agency shall attach an informational brochure.
