Effective July 8, 2020, the Indiana State Department of Health has promulgated an emergency rule updating its radon measurement and mitigation requirements. The rule significantly impacts multifamily and residential care lending transactions being processed through HUD, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac. Key points of the emergency rule include:
- as a condition of licensure, radon contractors are required to maintain certification through a proficiency program recognized by the EPA.
- all measurement, mitigation, and QA/QC activities must be conducted in accordance with the applicable AARST/ANSI standard.
- a non-licensed person may only perform measurement and/or mitigation on a building that they own and occupy.
