Colorado Safeguards Homes with New Radon Legislation and Licensing for Mitigation Professionals

The Silent Threat: Understanding Radon Gas in Colorado

Radon gas is a silent threat lurking in many Colorado homes. This colorless, odorless gas can seep into buildings from the soil, posing a significant health risk. To empower residents and ensure the safety of indoor spaces, Colorado has implemented crucial legislation and licensing requirements for radon mitigation professionals. 
At Colorado Radon Mitigation, we stay up-to-date on the latest regulations to provide our customers with the most effective and compliant radon mitigation solutions.

Understanding the New Landscape: House Bill 21-1195

Enacted in June 2021, House Bill 21-1195 established a radon professional licensing system in Colorado. This legislation, taking effect in July 2022, aims to:

  • Protect Consumers: By ensuring qualified professionals conduct radon measurement and mitigation services.
  • Promote Industry Standards: Establishing a benchmark for competency and ethical practices in the radon mitigation field.
  • Enhance Public Health: Empowering homeowners to make informed decisions about radon testing and mitigation in their residences.

Who Needs a License?

The law mandates a license for any individual performing radon measurement or mitigation services in Colorado, with some exceptions. You can conduct radon testing and mitigation on:

  • Your primary residence
  • Properties undergoing approved radon professional training programs
  • Assisting a licensed professional (under their direct supervision)
  • Government-owned buildings

Obtaining a Radon Professional License

If you plan to offer radon measurement or mitigation services to the public in Colorado, you’ll need to secure a license from the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA). The licensing process involves:

  1. Completing an application: This includes submitting required fees and documentation.
  2. Radon Certification: Proof of certification from a proficiency program accredited by the National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP) is mandatory.
  3. Examination: Passing a DORA-approved exam demonstrates your knowledge and competency in radon mitigation practices.
  4. Liability Insurance: Maintaining professional liability insurance protects you and your clients.
  5. Background Check: DORA may require a background check as part of the application process.
You can verify the status a company or individual’s radon professional license on DORA’s website.
