The new law requires that the standards be based on "the five general principles of mold remediation created by the [IICRC] in its publication," the ANSI/IICRC Standard S520, which are: Safety and health; project documentation; contaminant control; contaminant removal; and contamination prevention.
According to the release, training provided by IICRC-sponsored classes will now help practitioners in the state secure the licensing needed to be a mold remediation contractor.
Government Affairs Committee Chair Dr. Randy Rapp explained: "We have been able to advance our mission by engaging these various audiences. The results of our efforts show that we have been able to help government entities make better, more informed decisions to the benefit of the industry and the public."
