The American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (AARST), has released four American National Standards for radon measurement and mitigation that will greatly enhance radon risk reduction in the United States. These new standards will be available for shipping on February 1, 2014 at www.aarst.org/bookstore.shtml
The new ANSI-approved standards were developed by the AARST Consortium on National Radon Standards, and include advances in consensus standards for mitigating radon in multi-family housing, and in large buildings and schools, as well as standards for measuring radon in single family homes and in large buildings and schools.
Gary Hodgden, Chair of the AARST National Radon Standards Consortium Executive Stakeholders Committee, announced that the four standards approved through the ANSI accredited process include:
Radon Mitigation Standards for Multifamily Buildings (RMS-MF 2014)
2015 International Radon Symposium
Call for Papers
The AARST 2015 International Radon Symposium welcomes the participation of members of the scientific and medical community, radon testers, diagnosticians, mitigators, educators, public policy leaders and business leaders as well as consumers, both nationally and internationally.

Abstracts will be screened by the AARST Editorial Board. Authors who are not experienced in writing abstracts should look at examples of abstracts from previous symposia and duplicate their format.
