DORA Now Regulating Radon Professionals￼
Beginning July 1, radon testing professionals will need to be licensed by the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies. This recent law came from HB 21-1195 and will have two different licensing programs: one for measurement and another for mitigation. DORA Spokespeople state that the increase in radon levels in Colorado homes created a market for “unqualified individuals who are representing themselves and practicing as radon professionals.” Radon is a naturally occurring gas and is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S. There were 500 deaths because of it in Colorado last year. Radon testing is an important part of the home inspection process.
