Notice of Intent To Establish Voluntary Criteria for Radon Credentialing Organizations

August 23, 2017 • CRCPD

Notice of Intent To Establish Voluntary Criteria for Radon Credentialing Organizations A notice of availability was published Wednesday, August, 23, 2017, in the Federal Register seeking public feedback on a proposed approach for developing voluntary criteria for organizations that credential radon service providers. The comment period for this action is open for 60 days and closes on October 23, 2017. Currently, states receiving indoor radon grants from EPA may only list providers credentialed by one or both of two recognized credentialing bodies or their state-run certification program. These criteria will establish an ongoing and open evaluation process for organizations wanting to credential radon service providers and will help states ensure high-quality radon services are available to their citizens.
